FashionNova the GOAT! Just something slight …

#ArmoireAddict: Basketball Junkie 

Normally I’m a Lakers fan, (as instructed by my mother since I was born) but the shirt was hot so I had to wear it. Featuring Urban Outfitters and FashionNova we get a fun, simple, Friday, lounge around look. 


A classic, red and black, Chicago Bulls tee from Urban Outfitters and gray leggings with red stripes down the side from FashionNova. This look was so comfortable and perfect for the fluncfuating weather. I added a black bomber jacket whenever I went out to endure the cold with black Nike’s and I had a complete carefree fit. 

And just for the giggles…. 

#ArmoireAddict: Bum Day 

We’ve all had those bum days where you just don’t feel like putting your best foot forward. In honor of those days I’ve dedicated an #ArmoireAddict post especially to them. 

Nike, Converse, Fashion Nova and … WalMart? These four pieces together create a perfect balance between “I just threw something on” and “the perfect outfit”.  Here’s a rundown of the pieces from head to toe. Moto Jacket from Fashion Nova, hoodie from Nike, of course, leggings from WalMart (Don’t sleep on WalMart. They carry necessities and in this day and age leggings are as necessary in a females wardrobe as deodorant.) and shoes from Converse by way of Journey’s. 

A successful bum day is pulled off when your selected pieces are cohesive and flow together. You can’t overdo and you can’t underdo even though the point is to look like you’re not putting in any effort, if that makes sense. Bum days are all about basics. Basic colors, basic clothes, etc. The only thing I don’t have that adds that final touch to a perfect bum day is the messy top knot bun. But you better believe when my hair grows back out the messy bun will be in full effect. 

So I’ll end with a question to my followers. How do you complete your bum day? 

#ArmoireAddict

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.
