These past months have not given much reason to dress up for anything. I’m usually in the same tee and shorts throughout the day. The times I do need to go to the office for work, I’ll dress appropriately.
However, I had Friday off and figured I’d dress up and take a couple of photos of an outfit I would wear out if I could. My featured T-shirt hasn’t really seen much wear. I bought it about two years ago at Forever 21 and ended up not liking it on myself. I guess at that time, I was dealing with some body issues. I’m in a better place now, and I definitely liked the way the tee looked on me.
I decided to pair my striped tee with a pair of torn skinny jeans from Zara. Tucked in the tee and rolled the sleeves, which was my boyfriend’s idea and finished the look off with my white leather hi-top converse. I fell in love with this look, and I can’t wait for a time to be able to wear it out. Maybe a fall brunch? Who knows.
If you like the tee, I don’t think Forever 21 has it anymore, but I did find another striped tee I liked, if you want to check it out.
Let me know your thoughts on my outfit and tell me what you can’t wait to wear come the end of quarantine.
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!
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?
I recently received the awesome Jones watch from Folsom & Co. in the mail. I had been searching for a nice stainless steel watch in black that would compliment my mostly dark colored clothing for work. This watch hands down was exactly what I was looking for. The watch looks similar to some pricey watches you find at the mall, but is set at an affordable price! This watch is definitely made for both work attire and streetwear attire. I can’t wait to share some future streetwear looks with the watch. Check out Folsom & Co. for watches and accessories that will help elevate your style!✌🏻
I’ve been dying for a weekend away from San Antonio and this past weekend I finally did. My boyfriend and I headed to Austin for a one day vacay that consisted of food, drinks, dancing and enjoying everything else Austin has to offer. That included a trip to Hope Outdoor Gallery also known as Graffiti Park, which I was happy about being that they will be demolishing it soon.
We went just a little overboard with the food that weekend. We stopped at our favorite wing spot, Pluckers on Saturday. Boneless wings and fried pickles were on the table for dinner. It was much needed after a week of watching calories and stressing from work. Later that night we enjoyed a night of dancing and drinks at Barbarella.
The following we woke up for breakfast at Austin Diner and ended our Sunday walking down South Congress, which also involved a stop at El Tacorrido for El Equinox, an horchata with a shot of espresso.
Even though it was an overnight trip. It was much needed, and I had a great time!
I get excited every year when the cold weather arrives, because it is hot 364 days of the year in south Texas, and I have to enjoy that one day of cold. Okay, I’m slightly exaggerating, but it’s cold for just a few days. As the cold front comes in, I start wear the hoodies, sweaters and jackets that have been put away. I always say I don’t need anymore cold weather clothes, but I always end up buying something new. This year has been no exception.
A week before the Black Friday rush, I found myself doing some window shopping, and came upon my favorite store, DKNY. It had been awhile since I had stepped into the store, and in that first step I saw something I just had to have: a black velour hoodie.
Now to be totally honest, I have been hating on velour anything, but for some reason I fell in love with this velour hoodie at first sight. When I tried it on, it made me want it even more. I guess when your favorite brand does something you hate, you end up loving it.
I got the chance to wear my new velour hoodie over the weekend, and it was the perfect streetwear piece to add to my closet. I paired it with some light grey torn skinny jeans from H&M and my new pair of black and white Old Skool Vans.
The hoodie is great with or without an undershirt. If you plan on wearing an undershirt, try wearing a white or grey longline tee. The color will allow you to balance out the tones, while the length lets your undershirt be seen.
So the morale of this blog post is to never knock a trend without trying it out first!
As I’ve transitioned into a new job position with a new employer, I’ve sadly been mia from my blog. However, I am back with some new content!
This past weekend a cold front came into town, and I immediately took that a sign to bring out the fall/winter clothes. I mean, I always stock up clothing for the cooler days, but living in south Texas, those days take some time to get here.
To enjoy the weather, my boyfriend and I headed to the park on Sunday evening. It felt so good to enjoy a stroll without sweating from the get go.
While I traditionally like to stick to the earthy colors of fall, I wanted to rock my cool Forever 21 mint-colored anorak. I was obsessed with it when I bought it in the summer. However, it just wasn’t realistic to wear it in the 100 degree weather.
I paired my anorak with my light wash torn skinny jeans from Zara. It only made sense to keep my look on the brighter side of things with lighter colors. That’s why I ended up pairing my anorak with light jeans and my white leather Converse.
Even though my look didn’t have any earthy tones to it, I loved it! It’s always good to break the fashion rules, plus it’s better when you stand out a little.
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.
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.
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.
From capsule collection tees to Arizona tea bottle inspired sweatshirts, my April looks were pretty interesting! I started off with spring inspired looks and ended with a winter inspired look.
My ’90s black Guess oversized logo tee was my favorite piece for April. I had long strayed away from logo tees, but capsule collections just do it right. It might be that logo tees were huge in the ’90s and inspired looks from the decade are spot on. This piece is still available at Guess stores, and I still recommend it!
My DKNY perforated white sweater was a fashion risk that I’m happy I took. I love DKNY and they’ve truly stepped up their game in the streetwear department. I’ve made several other purchases since featuring the sweater, and I look forward to featuring them.
I finished out my April looks with a sweatshirt that tends to only make an appearance during the winter. However, a cold front came out of nowhere, and changed my planned outfit. Unlike the last time it was cold, I picked bright colors over dark.
As April comes to a close, I look forward to May and can’t wait share the looks I have in store.
In an interesting turn of events, we received a cold front this past weekend and it required a light sweater to get through the day. I mean it was a high of 67 degrees, which probably doesn’t feel that cold if you live in the north, but living in south Texas it’s considered a cold front.
The last time I was privy to this weather, I only figured it was fair to dress the mood. This time around I decided to stick to the time of the season and wear some color. I took out an old favorite of mine, an Urban Outfitters sweatshirt that always remind me of an Arizona tea bottle.
To help even out all the color my sweater was throwing out to the universe, I paired it with some black skinny jeans and my old faithful black converse. The black jeans and shoes allowed my sweater to make the statement while matching the black in my sweater.
I couldn’t have an outfit without a cap, an accessory that has become a signature in most of my recent looks. No, I’m not balding, I’ve just really been digging the way they add a little something to every look. I was originally going to wear a black cap, but figured all the black would be too much. Plus, the tan color complimented the sweater.
The cold front was fun while it lasted, but now it’s back to sunny days… or it is? I guess we’ll see if the weather has another plot twist in the near future. Until then, I’ll be planning outfits for hotter days.
