Street Festival, Streetstyle

The beginning of spring is awesome for a number of reasons- good weather, good vibes, and good food! I wore this outfit to a food truck festival Philadelphia. I wore sneakers to be as comfortable as possible and this was the perfect time to break-in my new pair of Vans. Black and white sneakers are a must-have in your wardrobe! They are great for everyday wear and you can wear them with anything. I went with a somewhat androgynous look- I wore ripped boyfriend jeans with a black and white plaid shirt, paired with a ribbed bodysuit and my favorite faux leather jacket. This is perfect for 70 degree weather because you can cover your arms once the day progresses and the temperature drops. I added the jacket for aesthetic purposes- it’s wasn’t even needed since I had my plaid shirt. I wore a pair of sunglasses I bought during the festival to go with this biker chic look.

Simple Streetstyle

So I have a confession…I have a new obsession with bomber jackets! I have collected them in multiple colors and this was my first time wearing this nude one. I attended a fashion networking event in my hometown and I decided to go with a laid back look, like always. I wore my new light wash highwaisted skinnies with a tied ribbed crop top (yes, it came already tied permanently). These are one of the most comfortable jeans I own. I matched my favorite pair of booties with my bomber, because as you dolls know, I am obsessed with color blocking! I love the nude and olive color together and they are becoming my favorite color combo. To finish this simple look, I wore a brown snakeskin choker with silver spikes.

Get the look:

  • Bomber Jacket: Ross ($15)
  • Ribbed Crop Top: Charlotte Russe Outlet ($5)
  • Light wash skinnies: Forever 21 Plus (Size 12, $19.50)

Business Casual

As you dolls know, I am a all-out neutrals gal. It is very rare that I wear an outfit that does not include black. This day, I got my fashion design portfolio reviewed by design companies. The only issue was that I left my dress pants at home. However, there are always ways around this. Putting a blazer on took this look from casual to business casual. Yes, my jeans are a tad tight for business attire, but the longline blazer compensates for it. I put on my favorite silver necklace and these stylish color block booties I bought from Primark. Adding the gray and black booties added more depth to the look- the black becomes less overpowering. I would not recommend this look for an interview, but it could definitely work for a  meeting or day when you want to look professional, yet fashionable and a little more on the casual side. I wore my hair in a sleek bun versus my fro to look even more professional, and kept my makeup on the simple side by adding a nude lip color.

  • Black Skinnies: FashionNova ($25)
  • Color block Booties: Primark ($25)

A Day in the City

Another beautiful day in the winter! I went to NYC last week and the weather was beautiful. I visited Global Brands Group and got a tour of the showrooms they have. I decided to go with a look that was casual, but not TOO casual. I wore a mock neck ribbed gray shirt with my ultra high waisted black skinnies from Fashionnova. I wore my faux leather jacket because I knew the temperature would drop later in the day. I also carried my black tote bag, which was lightweight and easy to carry around. Of course, I wore my Adidas Superstars. If you don’t own a pair of these, they are a must! I was comfortable all day, while still looking semi professional.
