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.
We’re at the midpoint in 2020 and we’re still dealing with coronavirus. With this going on, there haven’t been many outings for me that didn’t involve grocery shopping or heading to the gym. So I haven’t put much efforts into my outfits. But over the weekend, I felt like putting something together. Now, I know my outfit isn’t groundbreaking, but it’s definitely a step up from the wrinkled tee and shorts I use to head down to the corner store.
For this look, I brought neon and houndstooth together for a street wear look. I purchased my Zara neon tee from Buffalo Outlet. Thrift finds are usually one in a million, but I’m sure you can get a Zara neon tee from a Zara store. I paired the tee with my Houndstooth joggers, I purchased at Urban Outfitters about a year ago. I haven’t seen this type of jogger recently on their website, but I’m sure come fall there might be a similar style. I finished the look with my hi-tip white leather Converse.
While I didn’t end up going anywhere in this outfit, I loved putting together the look. With the pandemic going on, what’s been your go-to quarantine fashion? Are you putting efforts into outfits when you go out?
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?
Can we say obsessed? I am honestly obsessed with my featured look! The mastermind behind my look is none other than my boyfriend. It was a Saturday afternoon. We had a few looks to shoot and out of nowhere the “Don’t Tell Me” music video by Madonna and the outfit idea came to him. I was pretty much hesitant at first. Mostly because his Madonna obsession has gotten to me, but I digress. I decided to go with it, and I can honestly say that it’s one of my favorite looks ever.
Breaking down the outfit: the light blue denim shirt from DKNY was the first item picked. Next were the blue skinny jeans from H&M. I think at first, we were both hesitant about the fit, but I haven’t really been wearing denim for a hot minute and all I used to wear was skinny jeans. I would die before purchasing a boot or straight cut jean. Anyway, the pants ended up fitting the look perfectly. Next were my Calvin Klein silver boots, which I purchased over a year ago. I’ve haven’t worn them out, but I purchased them after finding out Raf Simons was leaving Calvin Klein. His aesthetic was amazing, and I needed a piece of it! To finish of the look, we went with a leather jacket I picked up from Zara a few years back and a navy hat from Topman.
I love this look, and with fall here, I will definitely rocking this look on a night out! What looks are you curious to try?
Mickey Mouse, torn jeans and studs are just some of my favorite things, and they all came together for this look. Winter is almost coming to a close but that doesn’t mean the cold will be going away. Spring can some times have cold nights and my Mickey Mouse sweater will definitely work for those nights.
I copped the Mickey Mouse sweater at H&M. I rarely ever find anything for myself at H&M, but for some reason this sweater caught my attention. After trying it on, I decided it was a must! And it’s been a great addition to my wardrobe. I’ve gotten compliments from people when wearing it. You really don’t need to wear any other statement items when wearing this sweater.
I stayed with dark colors for this look. I paired the sweater with some grey torn jeans from Zara and some studded high top sneakers from Steve Madden that I haven’t worn in awhile. The torn denim and studded shoes contrast with the sweater, but they still definitely work together. It gives my outfit a bit of an edge to it. Haha.
What are your thoughts on the sweater? How would you style it?
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?
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.
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?
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?
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!
