Threads of the Day: Not So Candid Renae Cut Offs

image

Sometimes life requires you to push it to the limit.  That’s been my approach to a lot of things lately: when getting dressed every morning, picking up a new skill, and even making major career decisions. Just go for it! 

But taking it back to the closet, it can be fun to push yourself to the limit! In my opinion it’s all about strategy and class. Pick an asset you want to focus on and keep the rest subtle. I chose my legs by rocking a pair of short, distressed Renae Cut Offs and over-the-knee socks. By focusing on my legs, I stayed bundled up on top and kept things simple on my feet.

I was inspired by a street style photo I saw where a girl stacked three different necklaces on making it look like one big statement piece. I loved the idea and gave it a shot with my own little twist! What do you think? Success lol?

As far as my makeup goes, I decided to go with something neutral. Clean face, bronze skin, and a nude lip. Here are some of my favorites I’ve been wearing lately!

-YSL Faux Cils Mascara
-Sonia Kashuk bronzer in Goddess (40)
-Rimmel London Moisture Renew lipstick in “Nude Delight” (642).
-Dolce & Gabbana lipgloss in “Innocence” 
-OPI nail polish in “Khloe Had A Little Lam Lam” (not pictured) 

Can’t exit the scene without my rockstar impression! lol I hope everyone is having a great week!

Threads of the Night: Sporty Chic

Let me apologize in advance for the photo quality. My camera was not working last night so I had to resort to cell phone pics and Instagram to give me a hand. 

The weather was really nice yesterday and not too chilly last night, so I decided to step out for a minute. I went with a sporty-chic look, rocking some fitted cargos, a varsity jacket, and open toe sandals. What winter rules? As long as the weather is nice, my toes will stay out! lol I blame it on the Texas in me.

What I’m wearing:

H&M cargo pants (gifted by a friend)
American Apparel racer back leotard
Zara strappy sandals
Forever 21 varsity jacket (loved the touch of the leather sleeves!)
Vintage belt
Vintage black triangle earrings
Forever 21 rosary necklace
Essie in “Fiji” on my fingers and toes 

As for the makeup … a bright lip is becoming one of my signature looks. Can’t stay away from it! Last nights choice was a Dolce & Gabbana lipstick in “Delicious” with a Pure Color gloss by Estee Lauder in “Electric Coral” on top. Both are just as nice when worn alone as well.
