TOP C/O FOREVER 21 ( on sale! here)
SUNGLASSES C/O WEARME PRO (here)
DENIM / THRIFTED LEVI’S
THIGH HIGHS / BOOHOO (sold out)
MOTO JACKET / ZARA
For the first time in my life, I’ve worn a patterned top. Not any pattern. STARS. I once saw the owner of SaboSkirt, Thessy, wear a polka-dot top and I fell in love. Did I have the courage to wear something similar at that time…of course not. But the time has come, and IT’S LIT (jk, but for real it is). This Forever 21 top has subtle lace up detailing that only adds to the stars. I styled this outfit with a 70’s vibe in mind, hence the yellow tinted sunglasses. For being totally out of my comfort zone, I definitely felt most confident while shooting this outfit. A huge hug for the Forever 21 team, for allowing this collab to happen! More looks to come.
Have you been listening to my likes on Soundcloud? I update it daily, and I’ve been listening to Che Ecru’s Benefits on r e p e a t. Lastly, want to know where I get outfit inspo from? Check out my Tumblr, and my Pinterest! Hopefully you’ll find something that inspires you too. XOXO
SWEATER C/O SHEIN (here)
PATENT SKIRT / MISSGUIDED
THIGH HIGHS / BOOHOO (here)
Patent, patent, patent. I need everything patent. I was once told that texture gives black outfits life, and it is very true. I wore this patent mini from Missguided (sold out ages ago), with some suede thigh highs I scored on Boohoo for $25 dollars during one of their weekly sales, yes weekly. Boohoo will offer up to 50% off sitewide once a week, more-less. My last three pairs of shoes, including the patent chelseas from the last post, were purchased from Boohoo for 50% off. I recommend the site for shoes, as they are the same as Public Desire, for example, but I do not recommend the clothing. Shoes run big so size down! Next, the sweater….I know, its RED. I picked this up, thanks to Shein, in hopes of adding another piece that is currently popular in Seoul (shop 2 other red sweaters I loved here, and here). I’ve seen Koreans wear an oversized bright red sweater paired with lightwash jeans, all white trainers, and killer makeup. Continuing with my Korean obsession, I will be sharing my favorite Korean skincare items soon! You need to try it.
Baby Tee: Forever 21
Lace up shorts: AKIRA (here)
Thigh highs: UrbanOG
Denim Jacket: Forever 21
A couple of weeks back I had told one of my besties that I wanted lace up shorts, but I never found a pair that fit well. So of course AKIRA came into the picture with this pair that I had to have. I like that they can be paired with alot of simple tops, like a band tee or a baby tee. Not only that, but if you want to dress it up, you can wear it Kendall Jenner at Coachella style with a lace bra top. I’m petite, but my booty needs room, so I was so glad that the sizing was perfect. I went with a size small after contemplating between a small and medium. Shop the shorts here, or look through new arrivals here! Next I want to talk about the baby tee, which is literally…a baby tee.
So, how can you possibly get away with wearing a kids tee? Very simple.
- I picked this one up for $2 dollars at Forever 21 in the kids section, and you can too.
- Because kids have their own sizing: 5/6, 7/8, 9/10, and 11/12, it would be best to just try them on. (because I am small ontop, a 5/6 fit me perfectly.)
- There’s no rules. If you want to wear a kids tee, wear a kids tee. Its about how you rock it.
The true definition of a baby tee, would be Rumi Neely’s version, which you’ve undoubtedly seen all over her Instagram. This kids tee is a bit longer than the AYAI baby tees, but in reality, you don’t have to spend $79 on it. Let me tell you how. Quick DIY ladies: Buy the kids tee at forever 21, and in order to achieve the AYAI baby tee raw hem JUST CUT IT. I actually just got the idea as I was typing this, so I’ll be doing it myself soon.
