Crop Circle

Normally, I wouldn't wear sweatpants out in public but these hemp drop crotch sweatpants from Groceries are sicker than your average. They're 100% organic and made in the heart of downtown Los Angeles. Pair them with sneakers for an instant cool. Highly suggested as an airport outfit or for running errands on-the-go.

Laidback Luxe - Dear Mama

My mama bought me this DKNY crew neck sweatshirt back in the 90's when I was YUNG VIC, and I have to thank her for keeping ya girl fresh since day one. As a little girl, I loved to watch her get ready for work and "help" her put on her lipstick and jewelry. My mother's style has always been classy and feminine, whereas I'm a little rougher around the edges, but I attribute my love of fashion to her. She inspires me everyday and is once, twice, three times a lady. Mama, "mẹ," "momz," you are appreciated.

Now back to this outfit: I'm currently into skirts with slits or interesting hems such as this rounded, high-low hem you see here. It's hard to tell in the pictures, but the skirt is made of a mesh material for that sporty-chic appeal. Finishing the look with Adidas Superstars was a no-brainer since wearing sneakers with skirts is currently one of top favorite trends. For a touch of luxe, I threw on my extreme cat-eye sunglasses, which only cost me a not-so-luxe $9!

I want to be the one you tell all your friends about. If you like what you see, feel free to leave a comment, like or share this post :)

I hope you're all having a positive week. Thanks a bunch for dropping in!

Indiana Jane

This fedora makes me feel like I'm Indiana Jones and I should be cracking the whip somewhere, escaping everyday villains! It was a gift from the historically lush Beringer Vineyards just outside of Napa--their chardonnay was my favorite! Made by Scala, the hat costs the same as one from Urban Outfitters, but the ones from Urban suck in comparison and quality. The shape and construction of Scala's hats are a perfect ten. I'm pretty sure it's a men's fedora--what's with me and shopping in the men's section lately?

I like donning this hat with outfits of neutral tones. Wear it with jeans and a T-shirt, or a dress/skirt for a hipster, rock-and-roll flair!

P.S. How gorgeous is this greenery?

On a Tuesday

Skirt: Finders Keepers (from Boutique Dandelion), Boots: Superdry // Photos by: Dijon 

Hi, my loves! A few of you guys requested that I post some casual looks. For most people, "casual" consists of jeans and a t-shirt--you know, the basics. All I have to say is that it's possible to be casual and still be stylish! 

I started this look with my Chicago Bulls Jersey which I thrifted (yay for cheap finds!) My immediate reaction was to throw on a pair of jeans, but I'm trying to stray from the typical "casual" look. Instead, I put on this Finders Keepers skirt I got from Boutique Dandelion. What I love about this look is how a boyish jersey is balanced by a girly skirt. For those who don't know me, don't be fooled by my ombre hair and manicured nails. I'm a total tomboy on the inside. I love to mix masculine and feminine elements because I like to look girly, but cool enough to be one of the boys!

It wouldn't be right to wear sandals or flats with a jersey, but sneakers or combats definitely fit the bill. Combat boots add a rugged aspect to your look. They go well with the jersey alone while adding some edge to a feminine skirt. This is my advice on how to dress down without compromising style!

Would you rock this look? Leave a comment and let me know what you think! 

I hope everyone is having a lovely day and as always, thanks for swinging by!
