Hi. Hello. I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything fashion related, but we are dealing with a panorama (pandemic). My love for fashion has not waned, my recent Saint Laurent purchase are proof of that, but there have only been a few occasions for me to dress up and go out like I used to.
Last night, the feeling of sadness definitely hit me hard. I knew I had to change my mood, so I channeled that into putting an outfit together and taking some pictures. Enter channeling 90s fashion!
The outfit consist of my Lady Gaga ‘Rain on Me’ T-shirt, Urban Outfitters joggers, and the OG Yeezy 700 Waverunners. The pieces aren’t vintage but they channel the 90s. I mean… fashion is recycled, so it shouldn’t be a total surprise that current fashion would be influenced by decades past.
Now, here’s to hoping this outfit is still in fashion when I wear it for a significant occasion.
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?
When fall arrives, I bring out the plaid! It’s obviously nothing groundbreaking, but plaid definitely changes up my look. Since the summer months tend to consist of short shorts and tees. A new style choice over the summer was concert tees. I found myself going to many concerts in 2018, and they became a go-to piece to use in the summer. With some styling help from my boyfriend, it looks like concert tees will be part of my fall wardrobe as well!
In this featured look, a J. Crew plaid shirt from the thrift shop meets a Charli XCX tour tee! I wasn’t sure about the combination at first, but they definitely go together in the picture. I went with some distressed skinny jeans from Urban Outfitters to complement my black tee. To help balance, I went with my Yeezy 700 Mauve sneakers, which complemented my plaid shirt. The neon green accents in the sneakers also matched my Charli tee. Finally, to give my outfit that drip (LOL), I added an Adidas belt bag I got at PacSun on clearance for only $8. Definitely a steal! The iridescent of the bag gave my outfit a much needed pop, while also complementing the greens in my outfit.
I can see myself making the plaid/concert tee combination a staple for fall. Has this been a staple in your wardrobe or is this something you might try for fall?
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?
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!
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.
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.
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.
I love a good dad sneakers and these are a definite cop. What are your thoughts on the Yeezy Boost 700 Magnet?
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!

Hey guys — I just finished editing my first ever sneaker review! See my review on the unreleased Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 Analog!

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.
