Welcome back everyone! I’m so happy to finally share with you guys this new look I came up with in collaboration with ThredUp. ThredUp is a shop where you can buy and sell secondhand clothes. They provide a description on each item’s condition so that way you have an idea of how it will look like when it arrives. Sometimes the clothes will even have their tags still on them! For this look I chose this red leather skirt from Forever 21 that was being sold on ThredUp for a fraction of the original cost. The skirt was in mint condition, seriously it looked like it hadn’t been used at all.

When I saw this leather skirt I knew I wanted to do a retro glam look. Instantly I was in need of a Coca Cola t-shirt so the search began. My original idea: a white shirt with red letters but only in my dreams would I have found this perfect shirt. After searching high and low for this t-shirt I tried my luck at Target. Unfortunately, they only had some tees for men. So after searching at Target and various other stores, I thought about trying my luck at the Ross that was right next door. I walked to the women’s section and I saw a handful of these Coca Cola tees. Booyah, I was in shirt heaven basically.

Being that the t-shirt was a heather grey, I looked for shoes that matched. I thought these  pointy toe pumps from Nine West were exactly what this outfit needed. And of course to top it all off, I needed red lipstick. In this look I am wearing Rimmel’s The Only 1 Matte Lipstick in Call the Shots and on top I put Rimmel’s Oh My Gloss! Oil Tint in Pop Poppy, which I will have full swatches and reviews coming soon.

I hope you enjoyed this cool new look! If you’re doing some Spring cleaning definitely check out ThredUp and make some money selling clothes that you no longer wear or want. I know I will be doing this soon as well. Until next time, peace out!

Another athleisure look for today’s fashion Friday! You know those days where all you want to wear is comfy clothes, well that’s me a lot of the time to be honest. One of my staple comfy items are these pull-on pants from H&M. If I could wear them every single day, I would. I love how they have an elastic waistband and tapered legs. But wait there’s more, they have pockets! Any piece that has pockets has a soft spot in my heart, especially if it fits my iPhone 7 Plus.

Almost always I wear these pants with some sort of crop top that I tuck into the pants. I hate showing my stomach so my crop tops have to reach at least to my belly button or I wear them with high-waisted jeans. The crop top in this look has an Aztec print that I really love due to my obsession with patterns. I had to keep the black and white theme going with my sneakers. These are the same ones I wore in my Grey Heathered Bodycon Dress post so check it out if you’re interested in seeing another way to style these sneakers.

Can’t complete an athleisure look without a cap so of course I had to include one. This cap is grey which really complimented the whole black and white theme in the rest of the look. These sunglasses are my newest obsessions, I just love how they reflect everything which makes for some cool pictures if I do say so myself. Lastly, my lipstick is Veronica by Anastasia Beverly Hills for all those interested! Until next week, peace out!

Welcome back to another Fashion Friday post! So last week was a bit more sports chic but this week we’re going with casual chic. Sometimes a casual outfit just needs a good pair of heels to bring it up a notch. I decided to go with some strappy heels since this pair has a shorter heel. If I know I’m going to be doing a good deal of walking, I save my feet the pain and go for some more comfortable heels.

When I looked through my closet I knew I had to pair my heels with a dark wash pair of denim. These are from Levi’s Curve ID line which unfortunately seems that have been discounted. These were the only pair of jeans that would fit perfectly so not sure where I’m going to start buying my jeans anymore. If you have any recommendations let me know! Also, these were always high rise so they’re perfect for outfits with crop tops, like this one. My layered crop top contrasted perfectly with the dark jeans and heels too.

Mirrored lens sunglasses are in for the season so I had to get my hands on some. Fortunately I found some that weren’t too big for my face and were on the affordable side. This pair has a black polish frame which I thought fit perfectly with the overall look. Hope you all enjoyed today’s post and be prepared for a special post coming this Sunday. Until next time, peace out!

Paisley Boho Pants*

Another day, another outfit that revolves around patterns. I love these boho pants because their wide pant leg helps me look taller. I always love these illusions because being 5,2′ isn’t easy and if I can have any extra “height” I’ll gladly take it! As I explained in a previous post, I usually style patterns with at least another item that is solid. In this case, the top has a simple crisscross design in the front which just adds a nice touch. The boots have a platform heel and add even more height, score! That’s all for now so until next time, peace out!
