Fashion is about stepping out and taking chances, living outside your comfort zone and exploring new options. The industry, the clothes they’re ever changing but your own unique style manages to adapt and evolve to the next emerging trend.
Embroidered, lace pants and a bandeau are hardly a combination that would easily come to mind but once you think about it it’s quite the outfit.
Pants from Express and a ASOS brand bandeau are a great match and can quickly transfer from business to personal.
Make a statement, be a lasting symbol all your own! Evoke your style.
What’s the first thing you think about when you hear burnt and orange? No, not Donald Trump. That pretty color that works so well for fall and winter. We’re in the middle of sweater weather and pullovers are the perfect choice for this time of year. Plus, some are great for work and then play.
Usually I pair this sweater, from Express with some light wash jeans like I have pictured above. The jeans are from FashionNova of course! But over the weekend I paired this sweater with some faux leather leggings, also from FashionNova and some white converse.
Just because we’re in a new year and 2017 brings change and growth, I’m starting a new series titled Armoire Addict. Everything about my closet and my never ending shopaholic purchases will be out here for the world to see. If I’m shopping my life away somebody might as well benefit from it!
For starters here are three of the top stores that continually take my money.
Ok. Let me just say that all the hype surrounding Fashion Nova is totally and completely worth it. I love their jeans almost as much as I love chocolate. I swear the pants are like magical or something. My figure always look the best in those jeans. I just can’t get that type of satisfaction from other places.
So I’ve loved bebe ever since I saw my sissy in her olive green, bebe track suit, back when Kim K made track suits everything and it was either bebe or Juicy. Now that I think about it I’m pretty sure I stole it from my sister and wore it to school one day. I mean it didn’t quite fit but it was worth it. I’d still do it again. Anyway, bebe is like my go to for leggings, blazers and jackets. Every female and their grandma has like 110 pairs of black leggings but I prefer bebe leggings because their so versatile. I know that sounds weird cause aren’t all leggings meant to be versatile. My meaning though is that I wear these leggings to work, campus, events and parties basically everywhere. Because their typically thick and stretchy they’re great for work because they give more of a work, regular black pants appearance than a lounge appearance. Secondly, I love the detail on bebe leggings. I have this one pair that have a lace pattern on the sides of them and they are like my favorite, they’re just adorable. I dress them up and down. One day I worse those particular leggings with a navy windbreaker and Timbs and it was quite a jiggy ensemble if I do say so myself.
My love for Express has truly grown. Honestly, I think the love grew when my pockets did but that’s a whole other story. Express I feel is really good for tops. Basic bodysuits and cute button downs for work even sweaters. Shopping at Express makes me feel like I’m adulting and I get really proud of myself and decide to buy some more so I can really be grown. That’s probably not the best philosophy and the complete opposite of what an adult financial strategy should be but hey I’m trying and I have an addiction.
