Threads of the Day: Posh & Chucks

Casual, chic fits are my go-to look. I love the mixture of effortlessly pairing a pencil skirt with some classic Chuck Taylors, a simple tank, and for the sake of this chilly weather, layering on a varsity jacket to stay warm. 

A sexy lace bra peeking out from underneath never hurt anyone ;)

Thread list:

-Pencil Skirt: Forever21
-“Black” Tank: H&M
-Varsity Jacket: Forever21
-White Converse Chuck Taylors
-Melody Ehsani “Truth” Necklace
-Clutch: Forever21
-Rings: ASOS 

I usually keep my makeup simple with a bold lip as the focal point. Today I chose a new lipgloss by Black Opal from their ColorSplurge Patent Lips collection called “Posh”. The color is so vibrant and pigmented straight from the tube! You could add a lip liner for a little staying power but overall you don’t really need a liner or lipstick layered underneath! 

You can find the Black Opal ColorSplurge Collection at select CVS stores, Walmart, or online at www.BlackOpalBeauty.com. The Patent Lips lipgloss retails at $6.75 each. Steal!

I hope everyone had a great, productive week and be sure to live it up this weekend!

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.

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.

Rumor Alert : H&M’s Next Designer Brand Collaboration

Say it ain’t so! According to the rumor mill, H&M has been stirring up greatness with their next rumored brand collaboration … (I know what you’re thinking, Maison Martin Margiela was just released last week)! By the way, did any of you cop anything from that collection?

Rumors stemming from insiders at Givenchy fashion house say that they are plotting on the next collab with H&M to launch in 2013.

There aren’t very many details outside of what’s mentioned above … but this is a rumor I’m praying is true! Are you on board?

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?
