Bold Solid Tees

The first official day of Spring is over a month away, but my wardrobe is starting to show hints of spring already. It’s partially due to the Texas weather, but I figured I’d take this time to talk about one of the big trends I’ll be rocking for Spring 2020: Bold solid colored T-shirt.

In the past, I strayed away from solid tees that weren’t black, navy blue, dark green or grey. I always felt self-conscious with how fitted pastel or light colored solid tees looked on me. But now, I’m in a place where I’m comfortable with how fitted tees fit my body.

In this featured look, I’m wearing a fitted yellow ringer crew neck T-shirt from Forever 21. I had actually purchased this tee awhile back, but I didn’t love how it previously fit my body. Now, I’m loving it. I tucked the tee into my lake wash dad jeans from Urban Outfitters and finished off the look with some white leather hi-top Converse.

My look had me ready for the fun weekend ahead! I can definitely see myself rocking the solid tees and dad jeans with a variety of Spring worthy colors. With the bloomy season coming in a few weeks, will you be rocking bold colors?

The Dad Effect

For the last few years, the dad effect has taken over men’s streetwear and has found its way into my wardrobe. From the look of my photos, I obviously don’t know how to act! I love the dad fit, especially dad jeans! In my featured weekend look, I wore some BDG light wash torn dad jeans from Urban Outfitters, which I totally recommend. The relaxed cut with a tapered leg is a perfect medium between skinny and straight.

I was wanting a basic look with a pop of color, so I paired my dad jeans with an orange long sleeve T-shirt from PacSun. The orange color was perfect for a sunny Saturday!

The sunny day called for a cap, so I went with my boyfriend’s Kim Petras pink dad hat, which added another pop of color!

Finishing off my look, I went with a pair of white hi-top Converse, because they are iconic and timeless and definitely complimented my cool dad aesthetic. Once I laced up my shoes, I was ready for a fantastic day out and about with my boyfriend.

With the dad style here and showing no signs of going anywhere, are you embracing it?

Cute Concert Merch from Kim Petras

A month ago, I got to see my lord and savior Kim Petras for the second time in my life! The queen was on her Clarity Tour and she just knocked it out of the park with her performance. Mama know how to put on a show and she also knows how to come up with some cute merch!

I literally went crazy at the merch table and spent about $90, but I had to have her merch! One T-shirt in particular caught my eye when I looking up her merch on Twitter: The Kim Petras holding a koala T-shirt. The meme-worthy T-shirt needed to be copped and copped I did.

I usually refrain from wearing white, because I don’t find it flattering on me. But the moment I put on the tee, I loved it! The fabric is soft and the fit wasn’t tight, which I like. I’ve been tucking in my tees lately and this one looks good tucked in. In this look, I paired the tee with some dad fit jeans from Urban Outfitters and some classic Converse.  The look was perfect for a cool, sunny Saturday.

If you’re looking to cop some merch from Kim Petras. I definitely recommend! The quality and creativity is there! Check out her merch store here, if you aren’t seeing her on tour.

Casual Vibes

If there’s one thing that hasn’t changed in my wardrobe as I get older, it would be torn denim. You really can’t go wrong with torn denim! Dress it up or dress it down, you can add torn denim to almost any outfit.

In my featured look, I went for casual vibes for my Saturday look, so I sort of went crazy with the torn denim. I started off with my Zara skinny jeans I picked up in-store a few years ago. I combined my jeans with a dark short sleeve tee, which is actually my Kacey Musgraves happy & sad smiley concert tee.  I needed layers on this chilly day, so I went with a red and black plaid shirt, which complimented my dark denim.

Now the risky choice was my Zara torn jean denim jacket, because of it’s lighter denim and torn look. However, I think the contrast was needed to balance out my mostly dark tone look. To help the balance, I finished off the look with my Yeezy 700 waverunners. The grey tones were a needed compliment to the look, plus the sneakers gave the look  the casual vibes I was wanting.

What do you think about my causal Saturday look? What are your favorite pieces or looks during the weekend?

Serving Cool Dad Realness

Have you ever heard the saying, “fall is when I’ll starting dressing nice?” Well that saying couldn’t be truer for me. The temperatures have lowered just a little, and I officially don’t know how to act. I’m layering, wearing jeans and accessories when I can. I find easier to accessorize and layer, because I’m not sweating buckets.

In this weekend look, I added an American Eagle jean jacket I purchased a few years ago, to my look. Giving me a sort of Canadian tuxedo look, minus the jean shirt. I went with a short sleeve striped button up from Forever 21 tucked into my Urban Outfitters dad jeans. I finished my look with my Yeezy 700 V2 Static shoes and a black belt.

The look definitely gives me a fall dad chic look! What types of looks will you be rocking for fall? More layering?

Feeling myself for Fall

When the fall weather starts to hit, I start to feel myself and make an effort with my work outfits. Ok, I wouldn’t say this featured look is the most effort I’ve put in an outfit, but the simple add of a jacket can definitely make an outfit pop.

My Forever 21 tan jacket plus my Yeezy 700 Analog sneakers, khakis and button up shirt make up my dad chic look!

Neon shorts and Yeezy 700 Magent

Yeezy-700-Magnet-1

This past Monday, Yeezy and Adidas dropped the latest Yeezy Boost 700 V1 colorway called “Magnet.” So many thoughts came to mind when this colorway was announced back in July. One of those thoughts was that I was more than likely going to pass on it for the teal blue colorway. However, days ahead of its release, it was announced that it would be a Yeezy Supply exclusive. Basically, the shoe was going to be available on their website and only in the U.S. that exclusivity attracted me more to the shoe. So I obviously ended up buying them.

Yeezy-700-Magnet-2

They are definitely a nice pair of shoes. They have the most combination of colors since the Waverunner, which is a plus. The silhouette is the same as the other 700 V1s. The differences between this colorway and the rest is they used a nylon material for the base of the shoe, while all six previous colorway a had a mesh material base. Also, the shoe has less 3m than the other colorways, but that isn’t really a minus for me.

Yeezy-700-Magnet-3

I picked outfit pieces to compliment my Yeezy Boost 700 Magnet sneakers. I paired my Magnets with long grey socks and some orange neon shorts from Urban Outfitters, which matched the orange accents on the sole of the sneakers. I finished the look with a white vintage T-shirt from DKNY, purchased from a local thrift store.

Yeezy-700-Magnet-4

I love a good dad sneakers and these are a definite cop. What are your thoughts on the Yeezy Boost 700 Magnet?
