This week I wanted to share with you guys a super cool denim brand. This brand is called revice jeans and they have super unique and cool jeans. I’m personally obsessed with denim so once I found this brand I had to get a pair and try them out. This pair is called the ziggy crops, they are very fitted in the waist and looser in the legs. I got a size 25 which is my regular size for denim but if you want a looser fit in the waist I would size up. These jeans have fraying on all the seams and pockets which makes them look super cool. They are also high waisted so I paired a crop top with them and since they are very interesting I wore a plain black halter top from Brandy Melville so the eye focuses on the jeans. Finally, I wore my black slip on vans to finish the outfit off. I was super excited for this outfit because one of my friends partnered with me and took all these beautiful photo’s. You should definitely go follow her on Instagram because she posts lots of beautiful photography, her Instagram is @aqalsphoto .
I wanted to share this quick inspo with you. I love mood boards especially when I’m not having too many great outfit idea’s. I made this board based off of photos from my Pinterest which you can check out here. These are all photo which inspires me and hopefully, they will inspire you too. Enjoy!
Happy weekend! This week I chose this outfit because it’s been super hot and cold here in Chicago (it’s different every day it seems like). But for the weekends that are super hot, I’ve been loving distressed denim. I got these overall shorts recently at a thrift store. Thrifting is a great way to get some great pieces for a good price and you can also find the most interesting things that no one else will have. This specific pair of overalls though was from forever 21 originally (tag was still on). Forever 21 has a lot of overall short, skirt, etc… options so if you’re looking for a pair you may have some luck there (I’ll tag some below). For tops, I’ve seen so many creative ways to pair overalls. I especially love the off the shoulder tops and anything with cool details paired with the overalls. Crop tops are also really cute with just a little skin peeking out of the sides. For this outfit, I paired a black tank top from Brandy Melville and then, of course, my Stan Smiths from Adidas because they are the perfect weekend sneaker. Adidas makes so many stylish sneakers in many price ranges that are comfortable and cute (linked below).
Hi! I’m back with another post on gingham. This year I’ve been loving gingham but I promise I will be doing more posts on other trends, I just had to share this super cute dress with you guys. I got this dress a bit ago but it’s still in stores at express. It comes in many different colors and prints. I saw a lot of other bloggers wearing this dress and I just had to get it. I found that it looks super flattering on and slims the legs. I paired it with some black espadrilles. By the way, I’ve been wearing these espadrilles none stop since I got them and they have made it to my summer staples list! For the bag, I paired my favorite Kate Spade cross body.
Hi everyone! I’m back with a post I am super excited to share with you guys. Chicago is now warming up slowly and I’m busting out all my summer clothes but I got these shorts recently while I was in New York and I wanted to share them with you. I’d been looking for a cute pair of tie shorts that fit me for soo long and when I saw them in Express I had to pick them up. If you are more petite, I definitely suggest checking these shorts out because its always hard to find something that fits comfortably and isn’t to big on me. They also come in a bunch of colors, I got the simple white and pinky tones striped ones. To focus the outfit on the shorts I wore a black cotton tank top tucked in. To finish the outfit off I wore these totally cool platform espadrilles. They matched so well with the black and the theme of the outfit. Also, I never have talked about my jewelry before because I frequently wear the same jewelry. For the most part but my go-to necklaces are my monogram necklace from Nordstrom or my Kendra Scott necklace. For earrings it’s mostly pearls every day because you can’t go wrong with pearls. My watch is also from Cluse watches, I have the small rose gold watch.
Happy summer! Chicago is finally catching up on the weather and it’s not freezing anymore. Now that it’s not freezing it’s sooo hot. This inspired me to write the post, a casual outfit perfect for the heat. I wanted my hair to be out of the way so I did these Fishtail braids. This was a struggle for me at first. I’m really bad at braiding my own hair, but after a few tries, I got it! This is a great hairstyle for girls with curly hair on a humid day or for if your swimming because it helps keep your hair back. I got this tank top at express a while ago, and I’ve been so excited to wear it and I was finally able to. This top is super light and airy which was perfect for the heat. It also crosses in the back and ties. I paired these with some jean shorts from Zara. I’ve been wearing these shorts non stop, they are distressed and high wasted so they are great to wear with crop tops. They also fully cover the butt. One of my pet peeves is when shorts show little butt cheeks. I then threw on a pair of my favorite sandals from J.Crew. I got a pair two years ago and I wore them non stop and they started to look a little worn but I loved them so much that I went back and got another pair this year. Normally my sandals only last about summer if I wear them a lot and these lasted so long and were super comfy so I definitely suggest you pick up a pair.
I’m super excited to share this outfit because its finally getting warm here in Chicago and I’m busting out all my warm weather clothes. I recently went to New York (why I haven’t been posting lately) and I did so much shopping. I couldn’t wait to share all the new outfits with you guys. These pants were defiantly at the top of my list to share with you because the minute I saw them in a store I knew I loved them! They’re light cotton and very soft, perfect for summer. I’ve been looking for a Gangnam print pair of pants for a while now and I found these were perfect. They even have a cute ruffle detailing on the pockets. Since these pants are definitely a statement I focused the rest of the outfit around them. I paired a plain cotton white tank top and a simple pair of low block heels. I got these pants at Zara and while looking through their website. I found that they have so many great pairs of pants to choose from for summer. (all links below)
As I was thinking of outfit idea’s to show you guys, I thought of some of the go-to outfits that I always wear if I need a quick, effortless outfit. This outfit is super basic but you can change it in so many different ways. Here I’m wearing these super cool wax jeans with zippers on the ankles, I choose these because they add a little more to the outfit rather than a plain pair of jeans. A huge staple for any wardrobe is plain t-shirts, my favorite place to get t-shirts is j.crew/ j.crew factory and Madewell. The fit of your t-shirt is actually super important because if you have the wrong fit it can create an illusion that can negatively change the proportions of your body. This is something I suggest to everyone to try different styles and decide which they gravitate to the most because it makes a huge difference. This is a great outfit you can throw on quickly as well as a pair together with pretty much anything to get many different looks.
As spring approaches I’m starting to slowly wear warmer weather items. When its warm out I love to wear dresses but when its still a little cold out dresses are not the most practical thing. This is where I love sweatshirt dresses, they’re cozy and girly while still warm. Here I’m wearing this gray one with cute tie cross details on the shoulders. Since this is a casual look I paired this with some slip on’s. I definitely suggest getting a pair of slip on’s for spring, they are so comfortable and they don’t look as bulky like a lot of sneakers. The ones I’m wearing here are from Van’s, I have another pair in white also. Since slip on’s have been super popular in the last couple of years, so many brands make them but I would recommend Vans or Steve Madden. I couldn’t find my dress anywhere to link it but I linked some super similar ones below.
As spring is coming slowly, I’ve started to plan some outfits. In Chicago we don’t get much of spring its really only a week or two, then it goes from unbearably cold to hot as heck. Since we still have spring months and everyone really just wants to break out white and shorts, I decided to blog about some transition outfits so hopefully, this is useful to wherever you live. Here I’m wearing an adorable white sweater with side ties. This sweater is a great transitional piece because it would look super cute with jeans as well as a pair of shorts, depending on the weather. Here I paired it with just a pair of black coated jeans and some knee-high boots. I love these boots, I would definitely recommend adding a pair of these to your wardrobe. These boots go along with the trend of the thigh-high boots but, they stop just above the knee. I found I love these because they elongate my legs more than thigh high boots.
