It has been a while since I’ve posted, but I thought this outfit deserved to be shared!
Courtesy of Forever 21, the army green top and patterned zip up tank top made the perfect combination for a fun different outfit.
I wore this to work, but instead of the army green top, I wore a plain black long sleeve. Both colors looked good, but I wanted to share this with the green one. Any colored shirt would look good under this tank top as long as the shirt does not have a textured pattern on it. I tried it on in the store with the same green top that had textured vertical lines and it didn’t flow as good.
I saw the patterned tank top on one of the tables about a month ago and thought it would be perfect to layer with. I received a lot of compliments on how I styled this look, so I was happy about that.
As my mom was helping me with these pictures she told me I looked innocent. She’s right, but I think this look is innocent with a little twist.
I had to follow up my last post with a post about my outfit!
I wore a white long-sleeve shirt from the Kendall and Kylie collection at Pacsun, my high-waisted black jeans from American Eagle and the heavy sweater that looks almost like a coat is from Forever 21. I almost wore my healed short black boots, but decided to wear the Target ones instead, good thinking on my part.
I am interning with a magazine and this weekend one of my assignments was to go to a fashion show, take pictures and write an article about it. I was so excited for this opportunity and it ended up being such a fun experience.
The show was at Eastern Market in Detroit and took place in one of the sheds. Mary and I go to Eastern Market on the weekends for it’s farmers market and one the sheds that is normally filled with flowers and fresh food was transformed into a fashion event. When you walked in the workers at the front table checked us off the list and we got Dior gift bags with earrings, a sample perfume and a coupon for a free spa treatment. There were tables set up with different businesses and modeling agencies there to give their cards and showcase/sell their clothes and jewelry that the models were wearing.
They had a grass wall that said “WALK” at the top for the event because it was the Walk Fashion show.
The event featured some of the nations top independent designers and models. The event was such a fun experience and helped me learn a little more about the magazine and fashion world.
Last Monday I was running late for class and had absolutely no idea what I wanted to wear. I threw this outfit on in about 10 minutes and walked out the door. When I got home my mom told me how much she loved my sweater and the whole outfit in general. Then when I walked in my room I found my sister playing with my camera. I saw the perfect opportunity for a mini photo shoot for a post!
I’m wearing a sweater I’ve posted about before from Urban Outfitters with a dark grey tank underneath, black jeans from American Eagle, short black boots from Target and I threw on my black bomber jacket from Forever 21 when I walked out the door.
My excitement when I saw these Calvin Klein jeans on sale at Pacsun was through the roof. I have been wanting a pair of CK jeans since I’ve become obsessed with the brand (about 2 years ago). I own shirts, sweaters, tanks, a matching wallet and purse and countless comfy sports bras, but not a pair of jeans. When I’ve seen jeans before, they have either been too expensive or not my size. Well, this pair was 70 percent off and ended up being $28! The style of this pair is “Mom Jeans.” They are high waisted, end right at my ankles and have no rips. The only bummer is that they are slightly a size too big, but I could not pass up a pair of jeans from this iconic brand.
I had an average girl moment shopping the other day, I bought another body suit. I know what I’ve said, and if you know me, you know I don’t like them, but they are growing on me. Khloe Kardashian wears them so well with jeans and a jacket or cardigan, and I’m really liking that look. It’s okay, I just bought one. I love this color, I don’t have a lot of it, and the plain style is just right for me. I plan to wear it with one of my long cardigans or with my jean, leather or black bomber jacket.
I wouldn’t be Not Your Average Girl if I didn’t buy some typical “Nicole” clothes when out shopping. Pacsun was doing a 2 for $20 deal with their PS Basics, so I bought the same shirt in different colors, always have to stay stocked on my plain tees.
Short and sweet post for a short and sweet sweater I bought from Forever 21. The style is cropped, so I bought a medium so it would cover my stomach. The brown and black stripes are different than my typical black and white stripe tops. It’s a fun sweater for the fall and winter days coming soon!
