A Night at the Museum

Standard

Urban_Outfitters_1

This has been a month of changes. As I begin to learn and grow as an adult in my personal and professional life, I’ve realized that my happiness is important. This blog is one of the many things that make me happy. My love for fashion is the reason I created Guy Love Fashion. Thank you to everyone who take the time to read my blog.

To help get me out of my rut, my boyfriend and I took a trip to the San Antonio Museum of Art on Tuesday for their free admission night. The museum is one of my favorite places to go, because it allows me an opportunity to escape reality for a while, and get lost in the art that is displayed.

A casual, relaxing night at the museum called for a casual, relaxing outfit. I wore a scallop short-sleeve tee from PacSun perfect for the summer heat and layered it with my favorite Urban Outfitters plaid shirt. Yes, I know this plaid shirt was featured in my throwback post from two weeks ago, but it truly is a staple in my wardrobe. The light shades are perfect for summer!

I paired the light shades with my favorite dark torn jeans from Zara and my New Balance shoes to match my shirts. My torn jeans gave my legs the opportunity to breathe in the humid evenings, while my shoes allowed me comfort for walking in the museum and outside in the courtyard.

I enjoyed my time at the museum. It allowed me to unwind and ease my mind from some of the things on my mind. If you live in San Antonio and haven’t visited SAMA, I suggest you make a visit.

My July Look Book

Standard

This hot month was all about going against the norm. I was dressed in black and wore an anorak. Yeah, I’ve never been one for practical fashion. However, toward the end of the month the hot weather got the best of me, and I had to go for a look that wouldn’t have me dying from the heat.

DKNY Men's Jacket

My first featured look was all about my DKNY white anorak. This buy from one of my favorite brands was perfect for summer! The perforated sleeves were an obvious stand out for me, giving it a much more fashion forward look compared to others I had seen.

PacSun_Thrift_Shop

My second look featured my favorite color and a cool thrift find from Buffalo Exchange. Black isn’t a practical color to wear during the hot days, but it’s just perfect to wear. And pairing my look with a new suede button up made for an outfit that’s probably best left for summer nights.

Forever_21_Men_1

My final look for the month highlighted after work attire perfect for the summer heat. I paired my Topman tee and Urban Outfitters sunflower printed short sleeve button up with some joggers for a perfect outfit that’s ready for hanging out with friends after work. Oh, let’s not forget my cool but comfy New Balance shoes!

With July coming to a close, I’m hoping that August isn’t painfully hot. I can’t wait to start sharing my August looks with you!

 

 

My June Look book

Standard

Pac Sun Short Sleeve

Pac Sun Shirt-1

It’s the end of another month, and the beginning of another look book. This past month, I only got to feature two looks compared to my usual three to four looks. I would like to blame that on the craziness that was the beginning of the month. Here’s to getting back on track in July.

Both looks for this month are from my trip to Dallas. To survive the summer heat, I dressed for comfort without losing style. Both my pink and black camp shirts are from PacSun and both my jeans are from Zara. For my first look, I decided to go with my OG Converse hi-tops. For my second look, I featured my new pink asos sneakers.

I enjoyed my time in Dallas, and I’m glad I packed my outfits accordingly! Now that June is over; it’s time to start planning my July looks. Stay tuned!

 

 

Dallas Adventures and Fashion – Part 2

Standard

Pac Sun Shirt-2

I present another look and adventure from my Dallas trip earlier this month. It’s crazy how time flies, it only seems like last weekend I was enjoying my 4-day getaway. Here’s to hoping I get back there soon!

On our last evening in Dallas, we kept exploring the city and came upon the Robert E. Lee Park (I hate the name BTW), which has a nice little waterfall and creek called Turtle Creek. I was expecting to spot a turtle, but that totally didn’t happen. It was another hot day, so I tried staying cool without sacrificing style, which can be a hard thing to do.

Pac Sun Shirt-1

In GuyLovesFashion style, I stuck to black on a hot day, but  short sleeve shirt and torn jeans combination helped alleviate any horrid sweating I would’ve experienced with a long sleeve and pants sans holes. My featured shot sleeve shirt was something I purchased while on our trip from Pac Sun. The print that consisted of lightning bolts, skeleton with cobwebs and an illuminati-esque eyeball are what attracted me to it. Plus, the lightweight material was perfect to combat against the heat.

Pac Sun Shirt-3

I matched my cool new shirt with my favorite pair of black skinny jeans from Zara. I’ve mentioned before, I’m not a big fan of shorts. It’s not because I hate my legs or anything, it’s just that shorts are a little too relaxed for my taste. Thank fashion for torn jeans, because they get me through the heat! For accessories, I went with my signature snapback from H&M and my Apple watch.

asos shoes

Now for shoes, I didn’t have to sacrifice style for comfort, because my shoes met the criteria for both. My pink asos sneakers were comfortable to wear throughout our adventures in Dallas. And lets face it, they look so cool!

Dallas was great to me! The sightseeing, nightlife and food made it a great time! Also, I got an opportunity to show off looks I hadn’t featured before.

Now, here’s to hoping to another trip to Dallas in the middle of fall or winter!

Dallas Adventures and Fashion

Standard

Pac Sun Short Sleeve

June started off on a busy note, but I was able to squeeze in some vacation time this past weekend. I hadn’t been to Dallas in over 8 years, so that was the destination for our 4-day getaway.

The first thing that came to mind was “What do I pack?” After looking at the hot forecast, I knew that short-sleeve shirts were probably the best option. Especially, when my boyfriend and I planned to walk around and see Dallas.

Pac Sun Short Sleeve

One of our first Dallas adventures was a stop at the Klyde Warren Park. It was such an amazing experience. The park is surrounded by the large buildings that help create the Dallas skyline. It was great seeing all types of people enjoying their Sunday afternoon with family and friends.

Pac Sun Camp Shirt

To help enjoy the sunny day comfortably, I wore one of my newest Pac Sun short sleeve camp shirts. The funky print and pink color made it a must-have for my wardrobe. And what better time, then to wear it on hot Dallas day.

Converse Hi Tops

I paired my shirt with some Zara light blue torn skinny jeans and my new white hi-tops Converse. The two pairs fit perfectly with my shirt, giving my outfit a summer ready look. To top of my look, I added my signature snapback.

Overall, I enjoyed my time at Klyde Warren Park. The people, cityscape and food trucks made it a wonderful experience.

I will be sharing another Dallas look next week. Stay tuned!

Throwback Summer 2015 Look

Standard

Topman Fashion Look

Topman Fashion Look

Two summers ago, a last minute internship opportunity led me to San Antonio, a place I still call home. I remember summer 2015 was all about my internship, summer classes, housewives marathons and wondering what the future would bring. That summer I also got to reconnect with friends I hadn’t seen in awhile.

My friend Tehua, who I met my freshman year of college at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi took these photos that summer. I hadn’t seen her for over 4 years, and we made plans to meet and catch up. Our get-together also turned into a photo session. Her passion for photography and my passion for fashion came together for this throwback look!

 

Spring Fashion Vibes

Standard

DKNY baseball tee

When you think of spring fashion, many things come to mind: florals, bold colors, short-sleeves and sun glasses. But what about sports? In recent years, streetwear has grown, becoming popular not only on the streets, but in high-fashion and has gained some inspiration from sports.

DKNY baseball tee

My featured piece is a DKNY S/S 2015 baseball tee that was from the last S/S collection under the creative direction of Donna Karan. I’ve mentioned my love for the DKNY brand, and this is still one of my favorite pieces that I own from the legendary brand. It’s a perfect example of the sport infused streetwear we’ve come to know and love. In 2017, sport infused streetwear is still going strong. We see it in spring 2017 designer collections like Hilfiger Edition (rugby polos) and Calvin Klein Collection (football jerseys) to brands like Forever 21.

DKNY baseball tee

For my sport infused look, I paired my baseball tee and matching cap with some a streetwear must, torn skinny jeans from Zara. I went with black to match my color theme and layered my baseball tee on top of a white Gap v-neck to compliment the black, while matching the white in my converse.

If you haven’t added a sport infused piece to your spring wardrobe, I suggest giving it a try. Trust me when I say, you’ll be giving off those spring fashion vibes!
