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,

2020AVE (Try-On) Haul 

(This post is unsponsered. Just wanted to share a little something about a brand I love)

For this post, I wanted to share a few things with you from a store I recently discovered. The store is called 2020 Ave. It’s kind of like Forever 21, which is my all time fav, but instead every piece of clothing has just a little something extra.

The first item listed above is the oversized Navy Bomber jacket. It’s very comfortable and keeps me cozy all day.

It has little zipper details on the sleeves. It has pockets that I can actually use, and it fits wonderfully. Everytime I wear this I feel like Cool Girl by Tove Lo is playing in the back ground.

This next shirt is one of the comfiest pieces of clothing I own. It’s a long sleeve shirt, but everything about this shirt is loose. So I don’t feel suffocated all day long. It’s a high low style shirt, and it has a long slit down the middle in the back.

It has a cute collar design, and a nice ribbed material. The colors in this shirt are absolutely gorgeous. It’s a nice burgundy color that fills the design, but there’s a subtle hint of yellow or gold woven in the thread that I cannot get over. It’s beautiful.

This next top is made especially for your aesthetic. I’m not kidding. It’s stunning. The material itself is soft, flowy, and beautiful. The design of the painted grid looks as though it was done by hand, which as an artist, I personally adore.

It has little slits on the side to flow, and compliment your body. I love the shape of this shirt, as in the neck line and it’s length. It could go with any pair of pants, it could be tucked into a skirt, as is or layered. It’s one of those items that can be worn twice in the same week and nobody could tell.

Painted Grid Sleeveless Top

Everyone knows that velvet is trending like crazy this year. I’ve seen velvet pants, velvet jackets, velvet crop tops, EVERYTHING. Especially crushed velvet is on the rise. This dress is not bodycon, which is good with me. It can be worn formally, which I really like.

You can see the color better in this picture, which is a blue/grey. It’s an open back design, and super flattering. This dress is definitely a 10/10.

Okay, so if you know me, you know that all my dresses usually don’t pass dress codes. So while looking at all the beautiful dresses on their website, I decided to take a jump and get a longer length dress.

I’m gonna take a moment to rage about this dress. It’s a slip dress, which right off to the bat is a win. The design on this dress is so stunning. It’s a floral, almost watercolor print. I’m in love.

I actually love the length. This dress can be worn in the winter, the summer, any time. It would fit right in at the museum or the beach. I love this dress, and I see a lookbook featuring it soon.

Get it NOW ( Currently On Sale!!) :

Floral Print Midi Dress

Alright, ove the knee high boots. Everybody loves the old knee high boots. Following right on into the trends, I already got velvet so now it was time for suede. These boots are a soft suede nude material and fit wonderfully on me. The heel is chunky, so they’re easy to walk in.

Look at that fit. It doesn’t get any better than that. These can be worn over jeans, over tights, over thigh high socks, or by themselves.

Chunky Heel Suede Over-the-Knee Boots

This store has been good to me. I love everything I got, it’s all affordable, and the shipping was awesome. I got everything in 2 days. How awesome is that? Not to mention my order was over $50, so I didn’t even have to pay for shipping. It was free!
