A Night at the Museum

Standard

Urban_Outfitters_1

This has been a month of changes. As I begin to learn and grow as an adult in my personal and professional life, I’ve realized that my happiness is important. This blog is one of the many things that make me happy. My love for fashion is the reason I created Guy Love Fashion. Thank you to everyone who take the time to read my blog.

To help get me out of my rut, my boyfriend and I took a trip to the San Antonio Museum of Art on Tuesday for their free admission night. The museum is one of my favorite places to go, because it allows me an opportunity to escape reality for a while, and get lost in the art that is displayed.

A casual, relaxing night at the museum called for a casual, relaxing outfit. I wore a scallop short-sleeve tee from PacSun perfect for the summer heat and layered it with my favorite Urban Outfitters plaid shirt. Yes, I know this plaid shirt was featured in my throwback post from two weeks ago, but it truly is a staple in my wardrobe. The light shades are perfect for summer!

I paired the light shades with my favorite dark torn jeans from Zara and my New Balance shoes to match my shirts. My torn jeans gave my legs the opportunity to breathe in the humid evenings, while my shoes allowed me comfort for walking in the museum and outside in the courtyard.

I enjoyed my time at the museum. It allowed me to unwind and ease my mind from some of the things on my mind. If you live in San Antonio and haven’t visited SAMA, I suggest you make a visit.

My June Look book

Standard

Pac Sun Short Sleeve

Pac Sun Shirt-1

It’s the end of another month, and the beginning of another look book. This past month, I only got to feature two looks compared to my usual three to four looks. I would like to blame that on the craziness that was the beginning of the month. Here’s to getting back on track in July.

Both looks for this month are from my trip to Dallas. To survive the summer heat, I dressed for comfort without losing style. Both my pink and black camp shirts are from PacSun and both my jeans are from Zara. For my first look, I decided to go with my OG Converse hi-tops. For my second look, I featured my new pink asos sneakers.

I enjoyed my time in Dallas, and I’m glad I packed my outfits accordingly! Now that June is over; it’s time to start planning my July looks. Stay tuned!

 

 

Dallas Adventures and Fashion – Part 2

Standard

Pac Sun Shirt-2

I present another look and adventure from my Dallas trip earlier this month. It’s crazy how time flies, it only seems like last weekend I was enjoying my 4-day getaway. Here’s to hoping I get back there soon!

On our last evening in Dallas, we kept exploring the city and came upon the Robert E. Lee Park (I hate the name BTW), which has a nice little waterfall and creek called Turtle Creek. I was expecting to spot a turtle, but that totally didn’t happen. It was another hot day, so I tried staying cool without sacrificing style, which can be a hard thing to do.

Pac Sun Shirt-1

In GuyLovesFashion style, I stuck to black on a hot day, but  short sleeve shirt and torn jeans combination helped alleviate any horrid sweating I would’ve experienced with a long sleeve and pants sans holes. My featured shot sleeve shirt was something I purchased while on our trip from Pac Sun. The print that consisted of lightning bolts, skeleton with cobwebs and an illuminati-esque eyeball are what attracted me to it. Plus, the lightweight material was perfect to combat against the heat.

I matched my cool new shirt with my favorite pair of black skinny jeans from Zara. I’ve mentioned before, I’m not a big fan of shorts. It’s not because I hate my legs or anything, it’s just that shorts are a little too relaxed for my taste. Thank fashion for torn jeans, because they get me through the heat! For accessories, I went with my signature snapback from H&M and my Apple watch.

asos shoes

Now for shoes, I didn’t have to sacrifice style for comfort, because my shoes met the criteria for both. My pink asos sneakers were comfortable to wear throughout our adventures in Dallas. And lets face it, they look so cool!

Dallas was great to me! The sightseeing, nightlife and food made it a great time! Also, I got an opportunity to show off looks I hadn’t featured before.

Now, here’s to hoping to another trip to Dallas in the middle of fall or winter!

Another Guess Original Tee

Standard

Guess Fashion

I mentioned in an earlier entry that I was loving the 90s logo tees, a look that is making a revival. I also mentioned that it would be a look that I would continue to rock throughout the spring/summer season. So it’s no surprise that I would feature the logo tee, yet again.

Guess Fashion

A stop at my local PacSun ended in the purchase of another Guess original logo tee from their capsule collection. The retro script logo is the epitome of the 90s, something that obviously caught my attention. I also knew the fact that it was white would make it perfect for the hot days to come.

Guess Fashion

That turned out to be true, because I ended up wearing it on a hot and humid Saturday. I paired my oversized white tee with my matching white converses and balanced out the white with my moto black skinny jeans from Zara, black cap and a denim jacket.

If you haven’t started adding these 90s throwback logo tees to your wardrobe, you better get to it! Find the Guess capsule collection at Guess, PacSun or Urban Outfitters.

My March Looks – Throwback Thursday

Standard

As winter ended and spring began, my looks for the month went from layers to tees. Here’s a look back at my March looks.

This pink tropical print bomber from Forever 21 gave me life! I’m still obsessed with it. Here’s to hoping that spring nights stay cool, so that I am able to wear it.

Zara and Forever 21 winter fashion

If my memory serves me well, this picture was taken on the last cold day of March. At least I got to wear my cool “Kanye” sweater.

Black PacSun Camp Shirt

Talk about another piece that gave me life. This muertos printed relaxed short sleeve button up camp shirt from PacSun will be seeing lots of action in the coming months. The material is perfect for a hot day, and the print is just so rad!

PacSun shirt and New Balance Shoes

My final look for the month will be my uniform, torn jeans and cool tees!

As March comes to a close, I look forward to April and can’t wait share the looks I have in store.

Casual Weekends

Standard

PacSun shirt and New Balance Shoes

After several weekends of cold, rainy weather, this past Sunday the sun finally came out. It was great weather, and I was long overdue for a stroll at the park. I put on my Ray-Ban Wayfarer, and my boyfriend and I hit up the Woodlawn Lake Park for a walk and pics.

PacSun shirt and New Balance Shoes

I figured it was only fair that my outfit of the day match the casual feels of this sunny and breezy Sunday funday. I’ve never been a fan of horizontal stripes, but this Modern Amusement shirt spoke to me when I found it at PacSun, aka it was on sale. It has surprisingly become a favorite shirt of mine. It’s relaxed fit is perfect for warmer days, and the colored stripes are great for spring.

New Balance Shoes and Torn Jeans

I furthered my relaxed look with slim torn jeans from Forever 21. Now, I tend to stick to skinny jeans, but this pair of pants look pretty good rolled up and the torned loose fit is essential for the hot weather.

New Balance Shoes and Torn Jeans

I finished off my look with a comfortable pair of New Balance shoes in my favorite color. There’s no shame in dressing for comfort, and a pair of New Balance shoes makes that decision much easier. It doesn’t hurt that they’re perfect for a walk at the park!

PacSun Shirt

With spring officially here, I’m hoping that these sunny, breezy days are here to stay. What will you be wearing for spring?

 

Black and Camp Shirts

Standard

Black PacSun Camp Shirt

Black has been my go-to color of choice for the last few years when it comes to clothing. You’ve probably heard it before but I’l say it again, you can never go wrong with black. It’s perfect for any occasion. If you don’t know whether your going to a dressy or casual get together, wearing something black is a safe bet.

Black PacSun Camp Shirt

This past weekend, I decided to get just a little experimental with my color of choice. I usually stick to black basic tees, logo tees or button ups, but I stopped by PacSun and fell in love with this cool muertos printed relaxed short sleeve button up camp shirt.

I had tried the camp shirt look before, but I just never cared for the fit. After buying this baby, I realized that the pattern and color makes a huge difference. This camp shirt looked so much better than a white one I had tried on. Now I’ve made a reminder to myself, always try something on several times and in several colors before denying it. I mean the graphic on this camp shirt was just too cool to pass up, and the black was so much more flattering.

I ended up pairing my new shirt with my favorite torn skinny jeans from Zara. I might look back someday and laugh at the fact that my jeans showed off my bare knees, but at the moment they are so streetwear chic!

New Balance Shoes

I finished the look off with my tan New Balance shoes from Urban Outfitters. They are as comfortable as can be and just scream “spring!” I figured they would help balance the prince of darkness look I had going on.

Black PacSun Camp Shirt

I have a feeling that I’ll be purchasing more camp shirts for spring. Get ready for the new staple in my wardrobe! If you’ve been on the fence with camp shirts like me, try on a couple of different patterns and colors and you might find one that sticks!
