Fall Haul (Pt. 2)

Everyone, I have a confession to make. I am a shopaholic. 

I know. Who would’ve guessed? Well, probably my boyfriend. 

Last Monday I showed you some new pieces I bought over the weekend. Wednesday I showed you some looks from a new eyeshadow palette I got. And Friday I was sick… but here we are Monday and as promised, I have Part 2 of my Fall Haul ready to go for y’all. Brace yourself. This is one of my best shoots yet. 

This haul was created to highlight the new items I bought from Forever 21. Unfortunately, this post is not sponsored. 

Starry Day:

Yellow, we meet again. And I see you brought your old pals mom jeans and ankle booties. How clever of you. 

This color yellow is a more vibrant hue than I would normally shoot for. But as soon as I laid eyes on it, I fell for the stars. It was unique. It was dramatic. And it’s super soft. 

The purple boots balance this look perfectly. This is an ideal example of how contrasting colors can really bring an outfit together. The top and the jeans are both from Forever 21. I’m back on my high waisted craze. 

Queen B:

Queen of damn near everything and it’s about time y’all recognize. You all saw this killer crop top in my last Haul post because I just got it. I saw the fishnets online and immediately thought of this top and thus the outfit was born. 

Fishnets were really trending starting in the spring, and over the summer. However, I’m FINALLY jumping on the band wagon, just as everyone else is hopping off. I do not mind that at all. The fishnets look so good under these jeans, the crop top lets them peep through on my midsection, and your girl slays. As usual. 

This look totally gives me 90’s grunge mixed with modern high end style vibes. It’s the fishnets combined with the GUCCI rip off and the heels that do the trick. I’m in awe. This was definitely one of my favorite outfits. 

As the weather slowly changes from scorching hot to mildly chilling, a look like this is perfect to transfer from day to night. The crop top is not too much, the jeans are loose fitting, and the entire fit is comfy. Ahhhhhhh!!! I need more cropped hoodies!

Vintage Babe:

Vintage has never been a style I go for. It just wasn’t anything I was into. I loved grunge and girly things in high school, but slowly I find myself bouncing between vintage and streetwear looks, or mix matching the two. For the look above, I kept the fishnets on, changed into my HUF shirt that I also got last weekend, and changed my jeans….

LOOK AT THESE JEANS!!! You can see from my face how comfy they are. They’re two toned, the left leg being the medium wash and the right leg being the light wash. I admire these jeans. 

The reason this look reads as vintage is because I get the vision of a mom taking two completely different colored jeans, having to sew them together and hand them down for their kid. I love it. A piece like this would usually be completely out of my comfort zone, but I’m into it. 

If pants aren’t your thing, F21 has a skirt and I believe a jacket version just like these. I hope these become a major trend. Go get your piece for they’re all gone. 

Moto Baddie:

I am warning y’all right now, do not sleep on me this season. 

Red and yellow are calling my name, but burnt orange will always be my fave. The jacket, the jeans, the boots, I got it all honey. You need it too. 

The jacket is the Red Moto jacket from Forever 21. Every girl deserves a nice faux leather jacket, and while it used to be that black was the staple, I am living for this red one. Dare to stand out my ladies. 

I used my hand painted boots to bring this look together. If you love these booties as much as me, fear not, they will soon be up for sale on my Depop. I got you covered, don’t worry. 

Thank you for reading. I hope you loved this post as much as I loved putting it together for y’all. Shoutout to Cassidy for taking these super awesome photos for me. 

If you’re enjoying these hauls/ mini lookbooks, let me know. They’re one of my favorite things to do. Let these looks inspire you this season. I’d love to see any recreations you come up with. 

Until next time,

Lazy Day Lux

Everybody has their lazy days. Everyone has the times where makeup is just not practical, all your good clothes are in the washer, and you wanna feel like you’re wearing pajamas all day. I struggled with this during my last semester of high school, but I didn’t figure out a trick to looking cute while staying unbelievably comfy at the same time.

The trick is over sized T-shirts and loose pants. I am OBSESSED with t-shirts, but I’ve made it a hobby of mine to collect T-shirts from every coffee shop I visit. A nice over sized t-shirt and baggy pair of pants is the perfect outfit for Mondays. I personally love dressing up, but wearing a simple silhouette with a cute pair of heels, a stand out belt, or a cute hat really amps up your confidence.

For this outfit, I photographed this in New Orleans. The t-shirt I’m wearing is from a coffee shop that is popular up there. It’s called PJ’s coffee. I love these type of shirts because the little design on the chest is so appealing, and I loved the bold color. I paired this shirt with my destroyed mom jeans, that I feature regularly on this blog.

I tucked in my top so the high waisted design of the pants would show, and I do this a lot with my over sized looks because I like the way it makes my waist look. I also wore my purple leather midi heeled boots that I’m in love with. These boots add an extra pop of color to a very simple look.

I hope y’all find this helpful. Don’t be discouraged about not putting together stellar outfits all the time. It happens to all of us. For me personally, I begin to feel down when I lack in coordinating outfits. But these are the perfect opportunities to show off new shoes or other accessories. Thank you all so much for reading.

Mommy’s Boyfriend’s Jeans

Distressed jeans have been the go to style for jeans for the past year or so, but no one can deny old trends are making a comeback. You can see references to the 90’s, 80’s, and even 70’s if you know what you’re looking for. The vintage style is so in right now, and I finally decided to invest in some mom/boyfriend jeans. 

I have never owned a pair of jeans like this, and oh my goodness how freeing it can be. These are extremely distressed mom jeans and I ordered in a size medium when I think I should have gotten a small. But oversized is the whole point right? So since these pants are so big, to keep the outfit balanced I decided to wear a tight sweater tucked in. 

Even though these are described as mom jeans, I think they’re a cross between mom and boyfriend jeans. How ironic that my mom actually hates these jeans. There are important differences between the mom jeans and boyfriend jeans.

Mom jeans: usually high waisted (most flattering) with a form fitting waist, loose pant, and tightened at the ankle. The automatic indication of a mom jean is the light wash. These go best with cropped anything. 

Boyfriend jeans: any rise of these can work depending on your unique beautiful body, baggy, and medium to dark wash color. These style jeans go best with slim fitting tops or hoodies, (like the ones we steal from our bf anyways)

Honestly, I like these baggy pants as alternative to skinny jeans. This look above gives me 80’s vibes but you can easily use these jeans to create a grungy or casual look. Recently I’ve been seeing these type of pants styled with heels which is so cute and different, but I don’t think I have the guts for that yet. I’m also thinking about layering a simple color or fishnet tights underneath, which totally brings me back to 8th grade. Have fun with these jeans, this fall season is all about being comfy!
