Plaid shirts and sneakers

I was going through my photos and found this photo shoot I did a few months back and hadn’t shared. It seems to have been toward the end of fall when the temperature fell just a bit, so a t-shirt and plaid shirt combination was ok to wear. The winter hasn’t been harsh in south Texas, but a light jacket is usually needed each day at the moment.

I paired my plaid and tee with some Zara torn skinny jeans and some cool shoes I haven’t really featured. As some of you know, I’ve been obsessed with chunky dad sneakers and these Puma Thunder Electric sneakers are pretty cool. They have the chunk ones to them, but have a modern look to them. If you’re not into a vintage dad sneaker than this is the one for you.

I’m enjoying the winter weather but miss fall. How is your winter going?

Monochrome colors for a gloomy day

Yeezy-monochrome-look-1

Do you ever dress in colors to match the day’s weather? This past Saturday was a gloomy day, and I felt it was only appropriate to wear monochrome colors.

I started my outfit with my pants. I’ve been trying to integrate more trouser and slacks into my outfits, so I went with some checkered houndstooth trousers from Zara. I added the hints of streetwear with an oversized black sweatshirt from Target and topped off my look with my Yeezy 500 ‘salt’ sneakers.

The muted colors went with an uneventful and gloomy Saturday. It doesn’t hurt to play with fashion or to dress up, even if it’s just to go grab a bite to eat.

Yeezy 700 Mauve

The Yeezy Boost 700 Mauve was hyped for so long and while it didn’t sell out in an hour, it didn’t disappoint. At least not for me.

The shoe has a very unique mixture of black, brown, purple and electric green. The combination sounds a little crazy but it totally works. The earthy shades are perfect for fall and winter.

I paired my Yeezy Boost 700 Mauve shoes with some torn black skinny jeans from Zara and an oversized grey sweater from Target. I’d usually stick to black or white shoes with an outfit like this, but the Yeezys definitely work.

Do I love these shoes? Yes. Do I think people who were turned off by the colors missed out? Absolutely. The 700 silhouette serves the chunky dad shoe realness that’s in right now. While the color is typical, that’s what makes it a must-have!

What are your thoughts on the Yeezy Boost 700 in Mauve?

Fashion on a dime

I love a good deal when it comes to clothing and shoes, because I don’t think looking your best needs to cost a fortune. A good find doesn’t need to come from a thrift store or off-price clothing store like some of my recent finds. If you’re patient enough, you can purchase designer and name brand finds for a discounted price at their respective store.

I am a big fan of Zara and for the most part, you will find their clothing at retail price. However, at the end of each season they mark down most of the store to make room for the next season. The end of the season sale is how I bagged myself these grey distressed torn jeans for $25, instead of $49.50.

I also got my New Balance 300 shoes at a bargain. I am pretty sure these shoes retailed around $80, but I ended up getting them for about $30 at Urban Outfitters. I had been eyeing them for a while, and was excited to get them for such a deal!

Some times finding a bargain at a retail store takes times, but it can be a win! If retail bargain hunting or thrifting isn’t your style, you can find some stylish, affordable clothing at Target like my green tee ($12). Where do you shop for fashion on a dime?

A pop of color to your wardrobe

It’s been a pretty gloomy week in south Texas. While, I’m been enjoying the cooler weather, a part of me is missing sunnier days.

An opportunity to help brighten up my day is with my wardrobe. I tend to stick to darker tone during winter, but sometimes you’ve got to add a pop of color.

Now when trying to add a pop of color to your outfit, try not to over do it. One colorful item will make you stand out! For my pop of color look, I added a blue DKNY bomber jacket over a white t-shirt, white leather converse and light washed torn jeans. The white tones of my outfit help my bomber jacket make the statement.

Make your colorful statement in winter with a bright jacket, pair of shoes or a bag!

Bomb Fashion for the Weekend

Mens-fashion-for-weekends-1

When you work a 40 hour work week Monday through Friday, you live for the weekends! Sure, I live for the fun, food and relaxing that comes with the weekend, but I also enjoy getting to dress exactly the way I want: fashionably. Not to say that my work attire is for the birds, but the handbook doesn’t let me wear torn jeans or converse.

With the weather somewhere between cold and warm this past weekend, I layered up my looks without long sleeves. My Saturday attire consisted of a new green pinstripe-stitched t-shirt from Forever 21, with a Zara bomber jacket. For jeans, I kept it light blue with some moto jeans from and finished off my look with my white leather converse and black snapback from H&M.

My bomb fashion was perfect for the shopping, lunching and partying that awaited me on Saturday. What’s does your weekend attire consist of?

Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018!

Vans-shoes-Zara-denim-1

Well here we are again, it’s the start of another year! The beginning of the new year can mean a lot of things to different people, for me, 2018 is the start of bettering my body and mind. When I look back on 2017, I can’t complain. It was the year I completed my one year at my first post-grad job, the year I advanced my career with my second post-grad job, the year of fun concerts and the year I rediscovered my passion for blogging.

My 2018 resolutions are to get into better shape, to not take myself too seriously and to continue sharing my passion for fashion with you all! I hope not to slack off, but if I do, I will look back at this post and remind myself to not give up.

For my New Year’s weekend, my boyfriend and I decided to spend it in San Antonio. We already spent time with our families during Christmas break, so New Year’s was for us.

On the last Saturday before the break, we spent some time Brackenridge Park, one of our favorite parks. If it hasn’t already become apparent, I love spending time at my local parks. While, I’m not the biggest outdoor person, I love taking time to visit a park and enjoy nature. Plus, it’s a great place to clear one’s mind and take some photos!

My last outfit of 2017, consisted of new buys that I don’t regret! I was able to cop some grey torn skinny jeans from Zara year-end sale. If you haven’t visited Zara recently, make a trip. They always have great deals at the beginning of the new year. I paired my new jeans with an old distressed blue jean button up from Forever 21, that I layered on top of my black tee from PacSun.

I completed my look with my dark green cap from Aldo and my new hi-top Vans. Ever since I purchased the low-top version of the shoes I’m sporting, I’ve become obsessed with Vans. I mean, I’m obsessed with shoes overall!

As I think back to 2017, I realize how blessed I was. The good and the bad has led to where I’m at this very moment typing this. Here’s to more accomplishments in 2018 and not letting the bad moments get me down!
