Denim

Count the ways…

Oversized shirts are so in style now! I recently purchased an oversized shirt form Zara and I loved it. I wasn’t sure how to wear it and played around with a few different ways.

 I think a common problem with oversized shirts is their “oversized” and sometimes not the most flattering.  I tried the off the shoulder look which I don’t think is practical for me if I’m out and about. 

My favorite was actually rolling up the sleeves which made it a little puffy but I liked it. How are you wearing this trend?!?

Ruffles and Frills

Ruffles and frills is not something new to the fashion world.  This trend has been around since the 16th century but it continues to make a major comeback!

I’m here for this trend  and these amazing statement pieces.   I decided to pair a striped ruffled shirt from Zara with these distressed jeans also from Zara.   I LOVE these jeans from Zara, amazing details!

I felt the shirt was a little too big although it was a small (no x-small were available) but I tried to make it work. As it gets a little cooler (currently in 90 degree Fl ) , I will try to mix and match with other items.

I’m always looking for the best deal!  This shirt was under $30 and the jeans were $40.

Ladies, how are you rocking this ruffle and frills trend?

Splurge Alert! Gucci Espadrilles

From time to time ladies we like to splurge on ourselves.  For some that maybe a new outfit, others that may be a trip to the spa or for some that maybe a pair of shoes.  Needless to say, we all work hard and feel like we deserve the items we’ve always wanted.

Earlier this year, I received these Gucci espadrilles as a gift because personally I could never see myself paying retail $450 for a pair of shoes.  For me, that’s just not in the budget!  LoL.

However, I will say this.  These shoes are awesome!  They are super comfortable and casual.  I love the color, it stands out!  They also come in different styles – click here to view additional styles and colors!  I think these are a great alternative to wearing sneakers when you want to be just casual.

Valentines Day is only a few days away ladies!  *Wink Wink*

Check out how I styled these Gucci Espadrilles.

Outfit Details: 

Shirt | Zara – Under $30 (Love this shirt – My absolute favorite! )

Jeans | Zara – Under $40

Shoes | Gucci – $450

OTK! 👍🏾 or 👎🏾? 

Over the knee boots! Yes, that’s OTK abbreviated which I recently learned. 😉 During the massive post Thanksgiving sale, I came across these lovely pair of boots from Aldo’s shoes.   Ladies, don’t be afraid to pull this look off!  I wanted to share a quick review on these babies. 

Pros: super comfy, heel is not too high (for me), can be worn with multiple outfits and easy to slip on and off.  They will definitely keep you warm! 

Cons:  Boots are a bit tight around the calf  area but manageable. 

Overall, these boots were a steal. They are currently on the website at 50% discount. I opted to go with a black boot because it goes with so many things and most certainly makes me look a little bit longer. 
Here’s the link to take a look at the boots!

A Little Polka Dotty….👙

Polka dots are one of the most versatile trends. They can be very fun with a retro look on a dress or matched with another print for a “mixed prints” look. 

The key to wearing polka dots without looking like a child is fairly simple…
1.  Wear polka dot prints thatnare fairly small. 
2.  Make sure your look is modern by pairing your polka dots with jeans, leather skirt or a blazer. 

H&M and ASOS has some really great polka dot shirts!  All under $40.  
Check out my modern polka dot look below! 

Outfit Details:

Jacket | H&M: Under $40 

Shirt | H&M: Under $20 

Jeans | Armani Exchange:  Under $60 (sale item)

Must Haves For An Edgy Look! 

Depending on my mood, sometimes I want to be a little edgy/rock Chic. It gives me a sense of freedom and makes me feel like somewhat of a badass. (LoL). 

I believe there’s a few essential items needed in order to achieve the “edgy” look. Check out my four items below!!! 

1.  Black or Dark Blue Denim Skinny Jeans – must fit at the ankle 

2.  Boots – I prefer just above the ankle but not so much at the knee. DSW has great selections. 

3. Leather Jacket – Must be cropped. I found the perfect Leather Moto Jacket from Zara for just under $50. Forever21 also has great options for under $50 as well. 

4. Sunglasses – My personal choice are aviators. I love RayBans! Overstock.com and Nordstrom Rack has great deals for under $120. If you’re not looking to spend that amount…Walmart, Target and Urban Outfitters typically have a great selection as well. 

There you have it ladies! Take a look below of my rocker/ edgy Chic outfit below. 

Outfit Details:  

1. Moto Jacket | Zara: Under $50 

2.  Graphic Sweatshirt | Forever21: Under $20 

3. Jeans | UrbanOutfitters: Under $40 

4. Boots | Steve Madden by way of DSW: Under $50

Don’t Throw It Away Just Yet! 😉

We all go through phases of cleaning out our closet and giving away those old items we don’t want. Well I’m here to tell you to rethink throwing away some of those old items, especially any type of denim jacket.  

I came cross this old and I mean very old denim jacket from BeBe in my closet and had to wear it. I’ve had this jackets for at least 8 or 9 years…😳 but for some reason I never got rid of it. 

I paired the denim jacket with a very simple fitted cotton dress from H&M….so comfy for Sunday Brunch. Check it out below. 

Choker: Forever21 – $4.50
Dress: H&M – Under $20
