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?

Mickey mouse, torn jeans and studs

torn-jeans-studs-1

Mickey Mouse, torn jeans and studs are just some of my favorite things, and they all came together for this look. Winter is almost coming to a close but that doesn’t mean the cold will be going away. Spring can some times have cold nights and my Mickey Mouse sweater will definitely work for those nights.

I copped the Mickey Mouse sweater at H&M.  I rarely ever find anything for myself at H&M, but for some reason this sweater caught my attention. After trying it on, I decided it was a must! And it’s been a great addition to my wardrobe. I’ve gotten compliments from people when wearing it. You really don’t need to wear any other statement items when wearing this sweater.

I stayed with dark colors for this look. I paired the sweater with some grey torn jeans from Zara and some studded high top sneakers from Steve Madden that I haven’t worn in awhile. The torn denim and studded shoes contrast with the sweater, but they still definitely work together. It gives my outfit a bit of an edge to it. Haha.

What are your thoughts on the sweater? How would you style it?

Obsessed with the Yeezy 700 Salt

yeezy_boost_700_salt_2

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.

A cool cosmic space anorak

cosmic-anorak-forever21-1

When is comes to adding new items to my wardrobe, I look for pieces that will make an outfit stand out.  That is exactly what this Forever 21 cosmic space printed anorak does. I saw it online and was drawn to it, but I wanted to see how it looked in person. I found it at my local Forever 21 and purchased it after trying it on and liking the way it looked on me.

I ended up wearing it this weekend. I paired the cosmic anorak with some black joggers from DKNY and my high top white leather Converse. Since the anorak itself already makes a statement, I kept it simple with the other items in my outfit. I really recommend this anorak if you’re looking for something fun to add to your wardrobe. It is definitely a piece that works for the cool spring evenings. Forever 21 also has some matching joggers as well. I am still debating on whether I should cop those.

What are your thoughts on the cosmic space print anorak?

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.

Forever-21-new-outfit-2

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?

Fila-Disruptors-new-outfit-1

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.

Yeezy-700-static-2

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.

Yeezy-700-static-3

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.

Mens-fashion-3

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?
