Be My Galentine?

So I’m a little late to the Galentine’s Day party… But I’m so ready to serve a little lady power before this V-Day! Nothing screams boldness more than a leather jacket and red pant combo, am I right?

 

 

First, I started off with this cute faux leather jacket from Zara. It’s a little thinner but has enough room to layer thin sweaters and shirts under it. I like the ruffles at the bottom that give it a little more shape, but doesn’t take away from how rebellious it makes you feel!

I thrifted this graphic tee, but it’s originally from Forever 21! I loved the print and colors, and I’m pretty sure it cost less than $3. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: you can find so many cute graphic tees when you thrift! I always start there first.

My pants are from TJ Maxx, and they’re the brand Joie. This pair also comes in French Blue which you can find online, and there are definitely more of my red pair in stores. I linked a pink/red pair of similar pants from the Joie website below.

Last but not least, I got my shoes last season from Nordstrom Rack and they are the brand Sam Edelman. They have such a fun and funky variety of shoes, and they’re all so comfortable. You can get them for a very reasonable discount at Nordstrom Rack. I’ve linked a couple pairs below that are almost the exact pair I have from the Nordstrom Rack website (and many of them are on sale!)

I hope you had fun with your ladies this weekend, ate a lot of sugar, and felt confident. I cannot wait to see how you take your Galentine’s Day fashion into the future! (Make sure to click on the pictures below to get the website links.)

I Finally Tried the ‘Oversized’ Trend

When the oversized T-shirt fad came upon us, I wasn’t ready to jump on board right away. I felt like I would look awkward, and it’s hard to find oversized things that don’t drown me when I try to be a part of the ‘oversized’ trend. Finally, I found a way to style an oversized tee and feel stylish while doing so!

I thrifted my t-shirt for $3. I strongly believe anyone can find a similar tee at a thrift store; there’s no use buying a $20 shirt in a normal store (unless you’re in love with it). I’m convinced there are TONS of big tees out in the thrifting world  that you can find for nothing!

I paired my leather jacket with my tee because it gave me a little shape. Alas, I bartered for that jacket at a vintage market (and got it for a steal) but I found a similar jacket from Zara that I would buy in a heartbeat if I didn’t have this one!

I layered my tee with a thin long sleeve from Forever 21. I use this shirt for SO MANY OUTFITS. If I could recommend anything, it would be to buy a bunch of neutral, form-fitting shirts to layer other pieces you find. Then, you can wear ‘summer’ clothes even when it’s freezing!

I gave my outfit a little bling with some silver hoop earrings I found at Target. They’re very affordable and comfortable! I’m a big fan of silver jewelry, and these add the perfect detail without taking attention away from the outfit.

My skinnies are from American Eagle. I still can’t recommend the quality of American Eagle jeans enough. They last for a long time and they’re super comfortable. In addition, they’re always affordable, especially since AE has jean sales frequently.

My boots were found at TJ Maxx, but I found a pair from DSW that are almost exactly the same and have a cute detail by the heel! I’m in LOVE with this pair.

Overall, I never thought this combination would work out, but it gave me a rebellious, sassy look that I’m not usually capable of! I had a lot of fun styling this outfit and it’s such a simple look!

Good luck with your oversized outfit endeavors! You got this!

Try My Outfit:

Mock Turtleneck Season is Here!

I’m convinced that 75% of my winter wardrobe is mock turtlenecks… I think I have a problem. (A good problem!)

I got this adorable mock turtleneck from Madewell. Of course, we all know the quality is incredible! It’s so warm, not itchy, and the tortoise-shell buttons are such a cute detail for the sides! Sadly they don’t have this color left on the website, but they may still have them in stores. If not, I would definitely check out these close cousins of my sweater from Free People, Forever 21, and the navy blue version of my sweater from Madewell.

My jeans are from Free People! They are super stretchy and comfortable, and I love the high waist. Free People’s denim is high quality and always keeps its shape. My Urban Found earrings are a perfect detail to add on and give the outfit a nice, metallic flare!

Last but not least, I’m in LOVE with these boots! They’re from Mango, which is now probably one of my favorite companies to buy shoes from. They’re high quality leather and so comfortable for their height. Sadly they sold out of the boots I’m wearing, but I found a very close replica of them on Sam Edelman, which is another one of my favorite shoe brands! They always have extremely comfortable shoes that are funky and high quality.

Because it’s after Christmas, all of these companies are having their after Christmas sales! I would highly recommend swinging by these websites to check out what they have on sale.

I don’t know about you, but I’m gonna go spend some time with my fam and eat some home-made cheesecake! Christmastime is for being with family, am I right??? I hope you’re having a wonderful Christmas season and as always, thank you for reading!

Summer=Yellow Jumpsuits

Yellow is not so mellow anymore! I see yellow clothing pieces everywhere this season, especially with jumpsuits! Not only is yellow a fun, vintage color, but paired with a jumpsuit, it creates the perfect summer outfit! Here are a couple of my favorites that I’ve found on the internet!

ASOS has definitely got the ‘it’ look. The floral pattern is perfect for this season, and the ruffled texture on the shoulders is the perfect look for this idea. I like that this piece shows off figure on top but is a little looser on the bottom.

I love this slouchy jumpsuit from Forever 21! It can be dressed up or down depending on the shoes/jewelry combo you could wear with it. I could even see it as a great cover-up for the beach! I would definitely get a lot of wear out of this one since it looks so comfy!

Lastly, Showpo has a great yellow jumpsuit with a classic cut at the waist and bold stripes. This would be perfect for a summer wedding, a date night, or even going on vacation! It’s so flattering where it ties and I would definitely recommend!

Those are all my suggestions for today, folks! If you’re interested in any of these options, the link is under the name of the brand. As always, thanks for reading and happy August!

Jumpsuits in the Winter?

One of my favorite kinds of clothing to wear are jumpsuits, but it’s so sad when they go out of season. Never fear, there are ways to keep your jumpsuits around for the winter season!

My favorite jumpsuit is from Spring Sweet, and I love it because it’s classic, yet feels like I am wearing pajama pants! I paired it with one of my basic turtlenecks and put a pair of tights underneath it to keep warm in this chilly weather! I’ve linked two jumpsuits at the bottom of this article that are so cute and almost identical to the one I have.

It’s really easy to find some cute basics to put underneath a jumpsuit, and I found my turtleneck at Aeropostale. My favorite affordable and cute turtlenecks are also linked below.

Although my jumpsuit was originally purchased for the summer, the neutral tones definitely help my outfit mix into the winter season.

As always, thank you so much for reading! I love finding new ways to wear fun pieces, as fashion with a college budget can be difficult!
