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).
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 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.
