I was able to get my hands on this hoodie awhile back at YG’s pop up in NYC. I love, love camo so getting this was a no-brainer for me. I finally decided to pop the plastic and wear this. Just an FYI, this hoodie is greatly made and the material inside feels wonderful on my skin. Now that that’s been covered back to the basics. I simply paired this with black ripped denim from Old Navy. Since its fairly cold, I wore fishnets underneath. I thought this gave a pretty cool look to have the nets show through the rips. Also, fishnets keep you quite warm. For the shoes, I immediately thought about a chill, Cali look. You know what that means. Bring out the classic vans! These paired well with the camo and black. Simple street style at its best. Check out more pics below.
To continue with my LA edition, I wanted to share yet another casual look fitting for Cali. It was so easy to pack for this trip! For starters, you eliminate packing a huge coat. Also you’d probably only wear a pair of sneakers and need a casual shoe or booties for the nightlife. On this particular day, the high expected was around 70 during the day and low 60s towards the night hours. This was perfect flannel weather to me. I decided to wear a blue and black plaid flannel along with a gray sweater cardigan on top of it, both from Old Navy. The cardigan was light enough to not get too warm throughout the day but heavy enough for the cool breeze expected at night. This paired nicely with a normal washed denim boyfriend jean with the small cuffs, also from Old Navy. If you cannot tell by now, Old Navy is one of my go to’s. Especially since it’s close by my job :-). There’s literally a sale everyday so how could you not indulge? To add to my casual look, I wore my favorites again; NMDs by Adidas. These have to be some of the most comfortable sneakers I’ve ever owned (I probably told you guys this before too). I think I mastered the chill, laid back look for my day in LA, not forgetting my sunnies and Prince pin. Check out more pics below and be sure to follow along my LA journey.
For those of you who may not be aware, my love for LA is insurmountable and forever growing. Each time I visit, I fall more and more in love with this place. The air is different, the people are genuinely nice and the warmer weather that exists, even with winter approaching, is a major plus. I recently visited during the Thanksgiving holiday and decided to do an LA edition on the blog. The style of dress will definitely be different when looking at ensembles for the City of Angels versus the Big Apple. Known for having a more laid back vibe and chill atmosphere, this can be noticed in the pieces chosen for my LA trip. You don’t really have to overthink it. Simply a flannel or bomber jacket with nice jeans seems very fitting for the LA vibe. Pictured here, I went with a cool bomber I purchased in New Orleans at Garb Boutique back in November. Living in NY, I thought I was going to have to wait until spring to wear it but luckily I didn’t. I paired the bomber with an over-sized Calvin Klein tee from Urban Outfitters, black denim from Old Navy and my favorite adidas. Comfy and stylish all in the same. Normally I have jam packed days in LA, trying to soak it all in within the 5-day span, so comfort is key. Check out more pics below and be sure to check back for other LA posts soon to come.
Pop-up stores are definitely making a good stint this year in NYC. Bleacher Report teamed up with the owner of Kith, Ronnie Fieg, and hosted one of their own here in Soho called BR99. There was tons of merchandise from tees, shorts, towels, hats, hoodies, etc. Some items were branded with 99 for this specialty pop-up and other things simply kept the KITH name or enlarged K. Since Bleacher Report is sports based, there were a lot of other activities one could partake in at this pop-up, particularly in the lounge located upstairs. Being a big fan of air hockey, I was definitely excited when I saw this and decided to play a few games. You could also play NBA 2K or even create a meme using popular viral videos that we’ve seen so far this year.
The pop-up wouldn’t be complete without Kith Treats. The Kith store in Brooklyn, NY offers Kith Treats which includes their ice cream cereal swirl and a good handful of cereal and candy toppings; perfect for a hot summer day right? This pop-up offered 2 specialties. One created by none other than the #1 NBA draft pick, Ben Simmons, which included captain crunch, cookie dough and Twix for the toppings. The other one was created by the Bleacher Report team and included fruity pebbles, captain crunch berries and blue marshmallows for toppings. Sugar rush indeed!
This was definitely a great pop-up to say the least. Its open until 6/30 so if you are in the area, stop by and check it out. More pics below.
Own the Day. These 3 simple words mean so much and definitely represent my motto in life. Designed by Brooklyn-based company WCIBF, the white Champion sweatshirt with the black writing compliments my denim dad hat so well. I think I’m officially obsessed with the new dad hat trend but that’s okay. Urban Outfitters made it so easy once they made this ‘Babe’ hat. There was no second guessing the purchase of this. I’m also wearing the oh so popular NMDs, which can be seen in the other pictures below. Be sure to ‘Own It’! Each and everyday we have 24 hours to make something happen that we want to happen. Let’s do this!
I’ve always been a fan of patterns and these plaid ankle pants were a must have for me. Old Navy often has tons of good finds and they happened to have these pants which I bought without hesitation. Neutral colors like gray and black look so classic to me at all times so to jazz it up a bit, I try to add color either in the shoe or with an accessory. With this ensemble, I chose to add a hint of blue with the shoes. I tend to wear a ton of black just to give you guys a heads up. Stay tuned to see what colors I choose to wear with it.
Spring has arrived and it’s important to make good transitions with your wardrobe. In New York, it often doesn’t get too warm until May or June so I’m always looking for something that compliments the weather here. This lightweight sweatshirt from H&M was a hit for me. It’s perfect for the cool mornings and late nights. Not to forget the $9.99 price tag which made it an even better purchase. I paired it with an olive faux leather pant (also from H&M but purchased years ago)and added a pop of color with the blue suede shoe.
