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.

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

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.

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!

Another Guess Original Tee

Standard

Guess Fashion

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.

Guess Fashion

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.

’90s Throwback Guess Original Tee

Standard

Guess logo tee

Growing up in the 90s, I recall logo tees and designer jeans being the “in thing”. That trend has been making it’s comeback for the last few years. I see the old logo tees my older brother was rocking in the ’90s all over the place. From Tommy Hilfiger to Guess, you can’t escape it! And after making my most recent purchase, I’ll admit that I don’t want this trend to ever end!

Guess logo tee

As I was walking at my local mall, I saw this black Guess oversized logo tee that I needed in my life. When I tried it on, I fell in love. The look and fit was perfect!

This past weekend, I had to take my new shirt for a ride, and I had no regrets about making this purchase. I paired my oversized tee with a new pair of Zara torn skinny jeans, my favorite Chucks and my tan suede cap.

If you’re into oversized tee like me, I recommend adding this throwback into your collection. As a ’90s kid, I’m loving this trend, and you can expect to see me rocking it throughout the season.

Now, let me find the perfect pair of acid jeans!

Black and Camp Shirts

Standard

Black PacSun Camp Shirt

Black has been my go-to color of choice for the last few years when it comes to clothing. You’ve probably heard it before but I’l say it again, you can never go wrong with black. It’s perfect for any occasion. If you don’t know whether your going to a dressy or casual get together, wearing something black is a safe bet.

Black PacSun Camp Shirt

This past weekend, I decided to get just a little experimental with my color of choice. I usually stick to black basic tees, logo tees or button ups, but I stopped by PacSun and fell in love with this cool muertos printed relaxed short sleeve button up camp shirt.

I had tried the camp shirt look before, but I just never cared for the fit. After buying this baby, I realized that the pattern and color makes a huge difference. This camp shirt looked so much better than a white one I had tried on. Now I’ve made a reminder to myself, always try something on several times and in several colors before denying it. I mean the graphic on this camp shirt was just too cool to pass up, and the black was so much more flattering.

I ended up pairing my new shirt with my favorite torn skinny jeans from Zara. I might look back someday and laugh at the fact that my jeans showed off my bare knees, but at the moment they are so streetwear chic!

New Balance Shoes

I finished the look off with my tan New Balance shoes from Urban Outfitters. They are as comfortable as can be and just scream “spring!” I figured they would help balance the prince of darkness look I had going on.

Black PacSun Camp Shirt

I have a feeling that I’ll be purchasing more camp shirts for spring. Get ready for the new staple in my wardrobe! If you’ve been on the fence with camp shirts like me, try on a couple of different patterns and colors and you might find one that sticks!

 

Fashion on a Gloomy Day

Standard

Zara and Forever 21 winter fashion

Another weekend has come and so has the rain. It seems like the days I want to enjoy keep getting thwarted by gloomy weather. Oh well, I still managed to find time to head out and get the best out of my Saturday. I figured my outfit should fit the emo vibes I was getting from the weather.

Zara and Forever 21 winter fashion

After hitting up the local flea market with the love of my life, we headed to one of my favorite parks for some shots before the rain made its returned. To match the gloomy vibes, I decided to stick to darker colors. I kind of looked at the weather as a blessing, cause once spring actually gets here, I will probably sweat buckets when wearing anything dark.

I’ve been obsessed with my distressed olive sweater from Forever 21, I refer to as my “Kanye” sweater. I haven’t been able to wear it much, so I’m glad I got a couple of photos wearing it. If you’re looking for that Yeezy-esque look, I suggest purchasing this sweater or something similar from Forever 21.

Zara and Forever 21 winter fashion

I paired my olive sweater with my favorite pair of biker skinny jeans from Zara. As a big fan of Zara, I recommend purchasing a couple of jeans here and there from them. Trust me when I say you’ll be grateful. They may a little pricey ($80ish), but they’ll last and aren’t as expensive when comparing them to designer jeans.

Zara and Forever 21 winter fashion

To top of my look, I wore my black cap and signature white leather Converse. I figured the white shoes would help balance the darker tones. Also, I think they photographed better than if I had worn a darker shoe.

Next time you’re wondering what to wear on a gloomy day, just go with the vibe!
