I love my new biker jacket more and more each time I wear it, and this outfit hit peak #lovelevels. I wore a killer lace up tee, courtesy of Forever 21, which I had actually tried on in-store. I really like the laced up tee shirt trend, and of course I had to have it in black. My new boots, though, were an impulse buy. I originally wanted the Tony Bianco ankle boots, which are idetnical, but Public Desire always comes in clutch. Any footwear that’s trending….you’ll find it on Public Desire. If you all remember from older posts, I have some cylindrical heel ankle boots, but I ended up noticing that they scrunch around my ankles because your girl has lil’ tiny ankles. This new pair, which still feature a block heel, are tight around my heel and are EXACTLY what I wanted. They are Lycra, and are stretchy and very comfortable. I do, however, recommend that you size up. I am a 6 1/2 and I usually size down because PD does not offer half sizes. Usually their shoes run slightly bigger, but because of the material of these boots you NEED to wear socks to get them on. Therefor, the size 6 is a really snug fit, and a 7 would have been better for me. **This is only a recommendation, because everybody is different.  In other news, there’s a new collab coming up soon with AKIRA Chicago!

South Korean Normcore fashion has easily become my inspiration for 2017. I have been slowly gathering pieces that are popular in Seoul, like the patent chunky sole chelsea boots, for example. You’ll see them on just about everyone: men, women, and even children. Next is the shearling collar denim jacket, which I’d like to pick up in a regular length aswell (here). I chose the longline version of the denim coat because Texas winters are slightly delayed, and start around mid January and end at the beginning of March. So, Normcore is defined as a unisex fashion trend characterized by unpretentious, normal-looking clothing. “Normcore is an especially tricky style to master because it’s so, well, bland”. It might be bland, but the right pieces make it look effortlessly c o o l. Still not quite sure what Normcore is? You can view my Pinterest board to check out what’s currently inspiring me from the streets of Seoul here!

WIDE SLEEVE SWEATER C/O SHEIN
LACE UP SHORTS/ AKIRA sold out
JACKET C/O DOPE
BOOTS/ EGO sold out

I’m back  and I’m excited to share with you all my current obsession: oversized wide sleeve tops (think Kanye West). The material of the sweater is thick and soft, and fit better than I had anticipated! I also had to throw on this killer embroidered bomber from DOPE. I’ve seen that this style of bomber has been popular so I had to get my hands on it, especially in this nude color. May I add that it is actually a men’s bomber? As you may or may not already know, I love scoring men’s pieces because they have a more relaxed fit/look. If you love this bomber you can use my code KARLA15 for 15% off your order! Lastly, my new block heel boots. The most perfect, Givenchy inspired, boots I had ever seen are now in my closet. Not only are they block heels, but they’re cylindrical. They’re currently sold out on the EGO site, but I’m sure they will be restocking soon. Block heel boots are the bees knees, I repeat. Until next time!
