Threads of the Day: Spy Discord Sunnies + $6 Jumper

image

I feel like winter just snuck up on us. What happened to fall? I should probably blame my feelings on being spoiled by perfect Texas weather. Le sigh.

I found this white cotton jumper at Goodwill this summer for six bucks. Score! But I never had a chance to wear it, so I thought, what the heck, and whipped it out to sport in a winter fashion. There are very few summer pieces that can still translate well in the winter without looking completely out of season. I believe this jumper is one of them.

Sometimes all that is required to throw on is a funky leather jacket, a pair of worn in motorcycle boots, simple accessories, and a great pair of sunnies.

Thread list:

Jumper: Goodwill
Leather jacket: Zara
Motorcycle boots: Steve Madden
Accessories: Forever21

Sunnies: c/o SPY Discord (Breast Cancer edition)

Although Breast Cancer Awareness month is over, it’s never too late to support and contribute where and when you can. 

Breast Cancer hits close to home for me because my grandmother passed from the disease. Thank you to the SPY brand for not only gifting me with a limited edition pair to support the cause, but also for giving me an additional pair to gift to one of my followers. 

I’ll be doing my first giveaway with the SPY Discord sunnies pictured, so stay tuned! 

Threads of the Day: All Black Almost Everything

I’ve been on chill mode extra heavy lately … mostly due to this cold weather and just wanting to stay warm. I went out for hot chocolate and desert with a friend the other day and took a few quick snaps of my outfit.

Simple, black, with a pop of leopard…

Thread List:

Forever 21 Varsity Jacket
H&M men’s beanie
Madewell jeans I cut at the knee
Steve Madden motorcycle boots (good ol faithfuls)
Zara leopard scarf
Forever 21 tiger ring 
NARS Dragon Girl matte lip pencil

This jacket was such a lucky find! There were only like three left and one just happened to be my size … it was meant to be. I love the leather sleeves and pocket detailing. I’ve worn this in a casual way like pictured and also dressed up (future post to show you that one).

This day was a bad hair day lol. So the easiest method was to throw a beanie on the back of my head, poof the front a little and rock out. Dont you just love carefree days?

Usually I love to pile on the jewely. But I decided to go sans earrings and just rock a statement ring.

Threads of the Day: It’s All In The Details

It was such a beautiful afternoon in Atlanta the other day, I decided to take a few quick outfit pics before I headed out. It’s clearly easier when I have someone to take them for me, so just bare with me and enjoy the accessory highlights.

What I’m wearing:

Floral sports jacket: H&M
White tank: Forever 21
Leather Pants: H&M
Vintage Versace Necklace: my grandmothers 
Michael Kors Watch
Gold Point Bracelet & Stone Ring: Ka’la
Black Sandals: Zara
OPI Skyfall Collection nail polish in “Tomorrow Never Dies”

 

I love taking a simple outfit and really completing it by piling on the jewelry. Accessories are my best friends … preferably gold!


time to add some color to my nails…

It was warm enough for me to trade in my boots for a pair of open toe sandals, and that’s exactly what I did. I found these little gems at Zara on sale for like $10 (talk about a score) last summer. Zara has some of the best shoes, just make sure you get them when you see them, because most of the times they won’t be there (in your size) when you come back.

How do you like to style your simple outfits to make them your own?

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. 

image

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.

Threads of the Day: Panels, Crosses, & Gaudy Jewelry

When you don’t have your camera with you … there’s always Instagram :) This was actually a look from this past Saturday while just running errands on a beautiful day in the A. I wanted to wear something comfortable but still cute for an easy transition from day wear to cocktails with my girlfriend.

Who said you can’t be cute on a budget?

What I’m wearing:

Topshop wedge sneakers
H&M army green jacket
Forever21 black cross t-shirt
H&M black panel leggings
Urban Outfitters tortoise shell framed glasses

Aaannndd a closer look at the accessories … my favorite Michael Kors watch, and 2 costume rings I picked up at a boutique here in Atlanta. You can’t see that well from the view in this picture, but it’s an elephant on my index finger … hehe it’s the details that matter!

My inner kitten came out to play later on that night. Here’s a glimpse of what I wore to dance the night away :)

Decided on a blow out and vampy lip for the evening …

(White cut out dress: Topshop , Lace thigh highs: can’t remember , Sam Edelman vixen boots (not pictured). ) 

And I can’t forget to leave home without my Gucci Premiere fragrance. Such a sexy scent!


 What do you have planned for this weekend?

Boyfriend Jeans Update: FOUND THEM!

You guys know I’ve been on the hunt for a pair of nice fitting boyfriend jeans (expressed back in this post). My lovely readers suggested brands & stores that worked for them like American Eagle, Joe’s Jeans, J Brand, Charlotte Russe, H&M, and NY & Co.

Let me tell you how I found this pair. Randomly looking around in Forever21, I decided to browse through the men’s section to see if they had anything worth keeping my eye on. Low and behold, I saw the wash on these pair of jeans, and searched like a crazy woman for my size (TIP: I went up 2 sizes larger than my normal jeans to get that relaxed boyfriend fit). The fit is great, they sit low on my hips, and they are long so I can keep them bunched up or cuff the bottom for a different look.

Could the price get any better!?

Love the wash…

and just enough sag ;)
