The Weekend Uniform

Urban-Outfitters-outfit-1Urban-Outfitters-outfit-2Urban-Outfitters-outfit-3

It’s been a HOT couple of days in Texas. Like over 100 degrees hot. To get through these hot days on the weekend, shorts have become my best friend. For a big portion of my 27 years on this earth, I haven’t been a big fan of shorts, even on the hottest days. But that has changed, obviously!

Shorts have become my best friend this summer. I’ve invested in my new friendship by purchasing several shorts from Urban Outfitters, like the ones featured in this blog. I fell in love with this UO geo print woven shorts, that I bought them in two colors. I’ll feature the other colorway at a later date. I paired these pink pair with a Chvrches concert tee and matching Yeezy 700 Boost in the inertia colorway. These shorts keep me cool on a hot summer day!

Spring feels

Spring-feels-1

Spring is finally here but that doesn’t mean jackets are over. The temperature can drop in the evenings and a thin lightweight jacket like the one I’m featuring will keep you warm and stylish. I bought my jacket from DKNY two years ago and you can find a similar jacket at Target for a more affordable price than I paid for.

I paired my jacket with a brick colored tee from Forever 21. This tee is spring ready and gives my outfit a pop of color. For pants, I went with some grey plaid joggers from Forever 21. Joggers are around all year long and are a great alternative for pants when it gets hot in the spring months.

For shoes, I went with my New Balance 300 tan leather sneakers from Urban Outfitters. You can find similar shoes on the New Balance website. They are very comfortable and stylish, which makes them great for spring!

I completed my look with a black cap to match the jacket. Spring is a great inbetween when it comes to weather. Most days you’ll wear shorts, but some nights, you can add some outwear to your wardrobe without breaking a sweat.

I can’t wait to share other spring outfits. What are your thoughts on jackets for spring?

Obsessed with the Yeezy 700 Salt

I know am late to the party, but I am officially obsessed with the Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 salt. I honestly slept on these shoes, when they went on sale. I regretted it and a few days later, thanks to GOAT, I was able to purchase them.

My first impression out of the box was, “why did I sleep on these?!” Yes, it is muted color way, but it works for me. I usually stay away from all black or white tonal chunky shoes, because they can look like work shoes. However, these don’t.

The salt color way falls somewhere between grey, blue and white. The muted colors makes it  easy to go with almost any outfit. I used it throughout the weekend with different outfits and it worked.

If you missed out on these shoes, I definitely recommend getting them off GOAT or StockX. Another thing that makes these a must cop is the fact the shoes had low stock numbers, which makes them sort of rare. The inertia color way just released and that one has double the stock of the salts.

What are your thoughts on the Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 salt?

New outfit feels

Forever-21-new-outfit-1

Do you ever wear a new outfit with nowhere to go? That was me on a Monday after work.

I’ve recently tried to cut back on the shopping. With several concerts and a big trip coming up, I got to save up. But when I need to add a little something to my wardrobe, I can always count on Forever 21.

I purchased this green and yellow striped long sleeve and mustard yellow button-front jacket two weekends ago. I intended to wear it in a weekend trip to Austin, but that ended up not happening. So I figured, why not where it on Monday evening?

I paired my new purchase with some acid washed joggers, mustard colored long socks and dove colored Fila Disruptor sneakers.

I would definitely say these new purchases compliment my current wardrobe. What are your thoughts on this look?

The Yeezy 700 Static Slaps

Yeezy-700-static-1

I’ve become an unintentional sneaker head in the last few months and my main obsession has become adidas Yeezy sneakers. The Yeezy 700 sneaker is my favorite silhouette, and the static color way has to be the best one yet.

The Yeezy 700 static just slaps. It’s a clean color way that will go with just about everything. The 3m reflective material literally makes the shoe stand out when flash or any light hits it.

I paired my Yeezy 700 static sneakers with a mostly all black outfit. I started off with some Urban Outfitters black joggers, put on a Forever 21 striped long sleeve tee and a distressed lack denim jacket. The dark toned outfit went well with the gloomy weather and the shoes gave my outfit a pop.

70s fashion

Mens-fashion-1

I tried to give some 70s fashion realness to my outfit last Thursday for my company’s yearly summit, which was 70s themed for its 45th anniversary. I enjoy a good theme and I surprisingly had some 70s inspired items in my wardrobe.

Mens-fashion-2

I started off with some yellow and black plaid pants from Forever 21. While the pattern is 70s influenced, the cut is a modern straight fit. I paired it with a blue jean button up shirt, which I don’t think was very 70s, but my Forever 21 corduroy trucker jacket made up for it. I finished my look with my white leather Converse. I mean Converse transcend every decade, so it was safe going with them.

While my look wasn’t a 100 percent authentic, the colors, patterns and corduroy do scream 70s. Don’t you just like it when you have clothes in your wardrobe that fits a theme?

Plaid shirts and sneakers

I was going through my photos and found this photo shoot I did a few months back and hadn’t shared. It seems to have been toward the end of fall when the temperature fell just a bit, so a t-shirt and plaid shirt combination was ok to wear. The winter hasn’t been harsh in south Texas, but a light jacket is usually needed each day at the moment.

I paired my plaid and tee with some Zara torn skinny jeans and some cool shoes I haven’t really featured. As some of you know, I’ve been obsessed with chunky dad sneakers and these Puma Thunder Electric sneakers are pretty cool. They have the chunk ones to them, but have a modern look to them. If you’re not into a vintage dad sneaker than this is the one for you.

I’m enjoying the winter weather but miss fall. How is your winter going?
