Cheers To The Weekend

IMG_7473IMG_7489IMG_7448 IMG_7455 IMG_7459 IMG_7480IMG_7495 IMG_7481 Stripes and boyfriend jeans are the perfect combination and this timeless outfit calls for a weekend in the city. Out and about exploring the museums, little shops, boutiques, and amusement parks. This would be the perfect 4th of July outfit but I couldn’t wait until then to wear it. Red, white and blue stripes will never go out of style and neither will showing your love for your country. I love keeping things casual once in awhile and giving my feet a little break from the heels. Converse, sneakers and flats never seem to let me down on those endless walking days. And neither does sipping on some black tea from Starbucks. MY FAVORITE! Yum. My paint splattered Pilcro boyfriend jeans seem to be my “go to” jeans nowadays. They provide me with comfort and style from day to night and I absolutely love them. I never used to be a fan of lighter wash jeans but for some reason, I’m kind of diggin’ them lately. I will honestly sport every shade of jeans as long as it comes in the ‘boyfriend’ style. Like seriously, I don’t understand why more people aren’t into this trend. It’s the best excuse to be comfortable while staying chic. Boyfriend jeans are the perfect “sweatpants” alternative. Embrace that!

Wyatt and I like to do some exploring on our days off and just inhale this pretty cool city while we’re here. We really like going to basketball and football games but our absolute favorite thing to do is watch some good ole baseball. That’s what me and him both grew up watching. He played since he was little and I watched both my brothers since I was little as well. It’s in our blood. We both cannot wait to go to our first Rockies game of the year.

50 Shades of Blue

IMG_6915IMG_6941 IMG_6920IMG_6937 IMG_6925 IMG_6942IMG_6931If you thought this post had anything to do with the movie “50 Shades of Grey” you can go ahead and click the x at the top right of your screen and get the heck out of here because no sir, no thank you. I will not be “submitted” into that kind of behavior. (Ha. I’m so clever.) No chains or whips could hold me back from wearing an all denim outfit. I’m having so much pun. Okay, I’ll stop. Back to the outfit: I wear denim on denim time and time again because I don’t think this trend ever goes of style. I didn’t want to go overboard on denim today so I threw on my all time favorite sweater to mute out the bursts of blue that’s happening in these shots. The beauty of an all denim look is that you don’t have to stress one bit about what color of lipstick to wear. You could wear a bright yellow lipstick and it would still look good. I chose red because I’m on a red lip kick right now. Keeping it classic is always a good, safe choice. I kept this look casual with converse shoes but had to fancy-it-up a little with a touch of gold aka my purse soulmate.

I have to give you a warning, so here’s my warning: Be prepared to see a whole lot of denim and menswear pieces in the next few months. I don’t know what it is but when my mind is set on something I really go over board with it and buy it all. I’ve been buying nothing but button ups, collared tops, stripes, high waited trousers, denim tops, chambray, etc., the whole sha-bang. It’s gonna be my Spring wardrobe for sure and I’m not gonna apologize for it. I’ll always and forever be a huge fan of menswear. No matter what, it seems like I always have to add a touch of manliness to an outfit. Oh, the contraction. I love it.

So if you’re looking to step out into the world of fashion and are ready to take risks, menswear is the best start ladies! You don’t necessarily have to give up your lipstick (In fact, I encourage you still rock a bold lip) or your tutu skirts. Just slowly start adding these boyish pieces into your wardrobe and daily outfits. Slow and steady wins the race. I swear you will love the never-ending menswear trend, not as much as me of course, but you’ll love it enough to feel comfortable in your own skin while also being on-trend. That’s all for now folks. See you soon.

3 Outfits in One: Dinner to the Movies to the Couch

You’re a busy girl. You’ve got a lot of places to be. You have no time to run back home and change every single time you have somewhere to go. Here’s a quick and easy how to guide on wearing one outfit, three different ways.

Step One: Create a simple color scheme that will be easier for you to transition from outfit to outfit.

Step Two: Choose a lightweight flow-y dress; one that is easy to layer.

Step Three: Pick a layer-able sweater top that is easy to knot to add some dimension and color to your already awesome dress. If you’re going to the movies, don’t miss this step because movie theaters can get real chilly.

Step Four: (If it’s not a winter wonderland where you live, you can skip this step.) Add some sexy to your outfit and rock some leather/pleather/faux leather WHATEVER to your outfit and you are good to go!

Bonus: Bring your converse along for the ride. No one likes hurt footsies from those high heels.

I’ll walk you through my kind of Friday night. I typically have a nice dinner with my boyfriend, we take a trip to the movies, and then end the night with some good ole couch time on our laptops while watching Breaking Bad.

My Outfit: I went with a light moss colored sweater top, a minted blue and pink dotted baby doll dress and to add a bit of sexiness, I chose some leather leggings to top it all off. It’s a simple color selection but it will get the job done.

Magazines & Converse

IMG_1238IMG_1240IMG_1256 IMG_1250IMG_1258 IMG_1279 IMG_1280Easily the two things that I can’t live without most days. My magazine and my pair of converse shoes. It’s funny because they both seem completely opposite from one another but that’s just me. I’m a little bit of everything. I get most of my inspiration from fashion magazines. That’s the main reason I’d love to work for one some day. I find some sort of idea on every page. Whether it’s fashion, makeup, hair or even life tips, you can find it all in one small book. Magazines are sacred. It takes a lot for me to throw one away because it’s like throwing away diamonds. Too much beauty in one small thing. Look at me, I’m such a fashion blogger. Whatever, I like what I like okay? I couldn’t imagine a life without em. There’s something magical when I throw on my pair of dirty converse after wearing my Zara heels all day and hopping on the couch and reading a magazine. It’s my happy place for sure. It’s my way of saying “DO NOT DISTURB,” I’m in my own little world.

XOXO,

Karissa
