I’ve been wanting a leather jacket since last fall, but never found one I liked or wanted to buy. Here I am a year later, I finally bought one. From where? Forever 21, of course. It was exactly what I was looking for. It falls right above my waist, thin and faux leather, so it’s comfortable. I’m wearing it with a sleeveless hoodie I bought on sale from Urban Outfitters. The vision I had of myself wearing a leather jacket is with a hoodie underneath and a pair of jeans. I’m ready for some cold weather to come our way so I can wear this!
If you know me, you know one of my favorite TV shows is Friends. I actually laugh out loud when watching episodes. I watched an episode a few years ago with my mom and was hooked, so I binged the series on Netflix.
So, a few years ago, when I was watching for the first time, I stumbled upon this Friends graphic tee on Urban Outfitter’s website and had to have it. It’s plain white with the infamous logo on it, of course I had to cop it.
The other day for work I wanted to wear this denim zip up jacket I found at a thrift shop, and the Friends shirt fit the thrifty look. I thought the outfit had a ’90s vibe to it, something Rachel Green would wear, so I wanted to share!
Some days I literally stare at my closet full of clothes and really think I have nothing to wear. I’m not sure what kind of look I want to go for or the weather is not in sync with the clothes I want to wear, I’m just stuck.
As a result, I usually throw together a basic outfit. A plain t-shirt, jeans and a pair of sneakers. I start with picking out the shirt I want to wear. Here, I was went with a plain white tee. To go with my Vans, I decided to wear a pair of ripped charcoal colored jeans. I have a lot of plain t-shirts in my closet, so any combination of a colored shirt and jeans would be easy to throw on. This was a casual outfit for a short day at school!
My first day of my junior year of college was yesterday. Of course, my mom had to snap a picture, so I thought I’d share my first day of school outfit. I went with a casual look featuring a new pair of shoes. I wore a plain white tee from Urban Outfitters with a long gray cardigan from Forever 21. My jeans are from American Eagle, but I actually found them at a thrift store for only $16. The tan slip on shoes are Steve Madden that I found for a good price at TJ Maxx. If you look closely at my backpack, you’ll see I’ve added a few new pins. I bought a pack of four Detroit themed pins at Eastern Market last Saturday for only a $1, I was pretty excited.
I am ready to start pulling off some more fall fits this year!
After college, I feel like going back to school shopping isn’t as hyped up as it was in high school. For the most part, college students could care less what they look like when going to class. Except for me! I love going “back to school” shopping. As you all know, fall and winter fashion is my favorite, so this is my favorite time of the year.
At work the other day I did some shopping when I got off and bought three items that I have been eyeing for weeks.
This olive green long sleeve shirt was on one of the tables and caught my attention. I don’t have this color in my closet, but I like it and how it looks with my skin tone. It is soft, comfy and casual.
Where’s Waldo vibes were felt by this shirt. It is kind of a loud shirt and I couldn’t tell you why I like it so much. It’s just so cute! The white and red stripes would go well with leggings and my jean jacket or just a pair of jeans like I have in the picture.
I’ve been seeing pictures of long cardigans on my Pinterest. This is what I had pictured in my head that I wanted: dark gray, long and has pockets. I can wear this with anything. I could dress it up with jeans and a nice shirt or dress it down with leggings and a t-shirt. It’ll be a favorite of mine this fall and winter season.
I’ve been going a little crazy with the shoes lately. I wanted a new pair of comfy sneakers. I have a pair of gray and tan Adidas, but I wanted another pair in a different style and color. I bought a pair of the Adidas Originals EQT. Footlocker didn’t carry my size in the woman’s, so I bought from the kid sizes. This is a perk of having small feet. It was cheaper, so I won with this shoe purchase. The pink on the back of the shoe is different for my style, but I think it looks nice with the bright white shoe and gray design. The shoe is light and comfortable, I 10/10 recommend buying a pair.
I am very excited about my recent shoe purchase! I bought a pair of Comme Des Garcons Converse. CDG and Converse collaborated to design this shoe. The styles come in both high and low tops in either black or white. The website I purchased from described this line as “a collection of basics for those who enjoy simplicity.” I have been wanting this pair shoes for a while and after reading that, it describes my style perfectly.
I must have been too excited when making the purchase because I missed where it said “Men’s Sizes.” I accidentally bought 2 sizes too big. Luckily, I was able to exchange them with no problems.
The Converse x CDG can go with almost any outfit because they are so simple. The peekaboo heart at the bottom doesn’t take away the simplicity of the shoe. It adds something and is my favorite part. They’re a solid addition to the shoe collection.
