Sporty Contradiction



What I'm Wearing
Dress (here, love these other tropical prints here and here) ~ Sneakers (here, cheaper options here and  here) ~ Sunglasses (here

Sporty looks are a fave of mine even though I'll pick heels over sneakers anyday. But I am realizing that sneakers also have their appeal as well. Especially chic, minimal ones like the Adidas superstar which I love so much it has been on heavy rotation since I picked it up recently especially with the rainy weather in the DMV area lately. I love wearing this particular sneaker with dresses both short and maxi. It makes every look effortless and chic. 
I styled it with this equally sporty, tropical print skater dress and since skater dresses are usually very girlie, the sneakers give it a contrast but also balances out the feminine look of the dress. This look is so chic and definitely a warmer weather staple for me.

Festival Inspired

What I'm Wearing
Crop top (here) ~ Pants (here) ~ Shoes & Necklace (not new)

I have been loving all the festival inspired looks on social media recently so I decided to do one myself even though this look is not very festival lol. I love the bohemian vibes of this crop top with the bell lace sleeves and also this lace pants hit the right spot. 

Floral Bomber



What I'm Wearing
Jacket (here, love this here) ~ Jeans (here, great options here and here) ~ Basic tee (here) ~ Shoes (here)

When I was younger, you would not catch me dead in this outfit out of fear that I would end up with dirt and food stains all over by the end of the day. But I don't know how it is that these days I can very easily pull off a white look without incident and that is a miracle in my book. Does that mean I have become less accident prone as I've gotten older? God i hope so!

I caved and bought this floral bomber jacket despite my resolve earlier in the year to not buy any more bomber jackets but I don't think I need to explain why I broke my stand, I mean look at it.

As you know if you follow my blog regularly, I have a love/hate relationship with jeans. I love how they look on other people but not so much on me, now before you give me that eyebrow let me explain why. I have a bit of a difficult body proportion. My upper waist is a size 12/14 and my hips and thighs are a size 16/18. That sounds very nice right? Until it comes to finding jeans! if it fits my waist, it's too small for my hips and thighs and if it fits my hip and thighs, it's too big for my waist! It is an ongoing battle for me. That has honestly deterred me away from jeans so far but the older I get, the more I have days when I just want to pull on some jeans and a tee and keep it moving. So began my journey of finding jeans for my body type. Good thing I know how to sew, so I've started taking in the waist of my jeans. 

I found these distressed ones that I love just for the fact that they're skinny but not too skinny and some light wash jeans tend to be very flimsy but not this one, its very substantial especially for the price. I also picked up this mesh bodysuit that I am just drooling over right now, the holes are very tiny and unless you came really closer, you would just think it was see through. I threw on a distressed jacket to complete the look.
