Oversized Mindset: Forever 21

Forever 21: Everything  (Two- Tone Boucle Top Coat $39.00, Mock Neck Crop Top $12.80, High Waisted Skinny Jeans $15.00, Snakeskin Elevated Loafers $34.95 (still in store not online) (same effect shoes

Morning loves! I wanted to challenge myself to do an outfit under or at $100 before tax. I have realized there is an association with forever 21 that majority of their looks cheap and aren't quality. So I took the challenge on of getting this entire outfit from there and making it look like quality. I wanted to mix textures as most of you all know. The coat is tweed and the shirt is ribbed and the shoes have embossed snakeskin on it. Moral of the story,"Its never about where it's from its all about what you choose to buy and how you wear it."-Sky

Mirror Fanatic x Fanatics Collaboration: Flirty and Sporty

Recently, Fanatics reached out to me and asked what I would wear to game day! As many of you know I'm from St. Louis so the Cardinals was my obvious choice. I wanted to be sporty and flirty. Adding the fun denim skirt but still making sure its fitted is a great mix between the two. The white crop top add a soft touch as well as the accessories. The Hat from Fanatics makes it perfect to throw my hair in a ponytail and show some team spirit! Check out all their sporting goods. They have a wide assortment and every team you can think of.

Pushing it to the limit is what it's all about. I don't have much to say about this outfit. I just feel naturally beautiful and these pieces together made me speechless. I love how effortless this look is. So many days I spend so much time trying to find the perfect outfit but the truth is, "I'm" what makes the outfit not the clothes. Clothes and accessories only enhance what's there!

One Sided

Shirt and Shoes: Zara (sweater) Shorts: H&M Earrings: Top Shop

Leather and Sweater? How can I go wrong? This outfit is one of my favorites. I had a lot of fun mixing it up. I love how this sweater has a sexy split on the side. The shorts for one keep me from being exposed but also adds to the outfit. Not to mention the TEXTURE! The faux leather shorts in the front are quilted make the side view interesting & the quilted aspect is picked up again with the heels. Now this long cable knit sweater deserves an award. By the sweater being thick and warm you don't have to pair a jacket with it you can just wear all by itself. This cable knit sweater is solid all by itself. The details on the sweater are exquisite and I wish I could wear it everyday.

I want to first off say crop top sweaters will always have a special place in my heart. Cropped sweaters are very easy to add in your wardrobe. As you all know I like to mix things up from colors, fabrics, and textures. I have on a knit sweater, tweed skirt, and leather boots. This outfit is young flirty, and fun. I had to buy this mini skirt because it reminds me of  the movie Clueless and all its fabulousness.  Oh! I almost forgot to say isn't it awesome that there's all this orange in the background. Whether people believe it or not your surroundings also can make or break your outfit; food for thought. Tell me what you think about mixing!

Pink Powder

Top: Zara Denim: H&M Shoes: Zara Jewelry: Bracelets (Eddie Borgo), Watch (Marc Jacobs), Earrings (TopShop), Necklace (My Bestie Closet) lol 

Let me be the first to say yesterday was an awesome day for me. I got the job I wanted so I was very happy and felt like celebrating by matching my feelings with my attire. So I got this top at Zara in New York during their sale. This shirt was originally around $70 dollars and I got it for $20! I know what a steal, right? I was so happy I didn't buy it when I first saw it because I would have been soooo upset to later see it for $20. Moral of the story "what's for you, is for you." 

Who said you can't wear white after Labor Day? I wore these white denim pants with no shame yesterday. I felt like the white was a great addition to the powder pink. I chose to do nude shoes so I could have fun with accessories not to mention their super comfortable. 

Well Enjoy Love bugs

Style Tip: Going for a clean finish will always land you to polished look.

The Case of the Blues

Jacket: Zara Sweater: Forever21 Jeans: Forever21 (similar) Shoes: Zara Bag: Zara Head Band: Forever21 (see what fits you)

First off my apologies for the picture quality. I hope to try and edit these and re-upload them but if not I am sorry! Boom! Got that out the way so lets get this party started! 

 Just when I thought summer had a few more weeks left, here comes Chicago tell me something different. Thank God I was prepared with some of my fall goodies. I basically wanted to play with layering and color mixing. I have been searching high and low for patched jeans and it was great that I happened to find these babies. I chose to mix maroon and blue because often times when we dress in fall we wash ourselves out with one color. We tend to dress monochromatic in the Fall and Winter seasons. But it's always interesting to throw in some color. It does not have to be obvious but a good contrast to add a Pop or Wow Factor

I added small details and cool little accessories like the head band, white suspenders, jewelry, and even cuff at the bottom of my pants. These small things can add so much to a simple outfit. Beware wearing necklaces with sweaters. Some necklaces have the potential of snagging sweaters. I chose to wear my hair in a ponytail is due the wind in Chicago. It's easier to have a better hair day if you keep it in one place. Some days I even do it to not have hair strands all in my sweater. Using the jacket as a cape gives the outfit a little spice and is there to keep you partially warm. Oh, the things we do in the name of Fashion! Oh, how could I forget about my fabulous shoes. These shoes are comfy, polished, and also a great color that I can mix with black, blue, red, and purple. They are great transitioning boots. As you all know I'm a big texture mixing girl and I invite you to try it as well.

Style Tip: Add a pop of color so your fall outfits aren't all monochromatic!!!! Unless that's the look your going on and even if it is at least switch up the texture in the pieces.
