Shirt: Charlotte Russe // Pants: Mango // Shoes: Payless // Bag: Kate Spade
These days, summer feels like spring most of the time – which I’m not complaining at all. I’m definitely enjoying the fact that I can still wear jeans and not be sweating like crazy.
The look I have on is for my cousin’s baby shower, who I am SO excited to meet! I picked this outfit, because it’s 1. It’s Appropriate 2. It’s super cute. Pink and white is my favorite combo for any outfits, and to think I used to hate pink. The shirt has a lace pattern over it, so it adds that girly effect. The jeans are boyfriend jeans so they’re extremely comfortable but still looking cute. My shoes are the perfect height, where you’re able to get that extra boost of height but not too high where you’d be tripping all day – and really comfortable. Lastly the bag was a gift from a family friend and it just adds a pop of blue to my whole outfit.
Today is the first day of August, surprisingly it wasn’t too hot out. Fun fact: I had leather shorts on right before I changed into these thrifted Levi’s jeans. The weather was perfect, it was sunny with a little breeze here and there. My family and I went to a Chinese restaurant with our family friends. (Click here for the Chinese food blog.) We’ve been to this restaurant for a while now, their portions are pretty big and food is delicious. However, the location isn’t the greatest, it could definitely be relocated. Onto my outfit…
My grey knitted tank is from Banana Republic, it was on sale for $12, originally $60. The back of the shirt has an open back detail, it’s so pretty. Also, the open back isn’t too revealing. This shirt is perfect for all seasons, definitely worth the buy! The ripped Levi’s jeans is from a thrift shop. I bought it for $7, what a steal! The rips are perfectly ripped, not too big, but big enough to give off the edgy vibe. My Calvin Klein bag is from Marshalls, on sale for $70. My sissy actually bought this for me, so sweet! Lastly, my sandals that I definitely over wear is from Arizona, I’ve had them for years.
Firstly, I’d like to apologize for the bad quality pictures. I was unable to take my outfit picture outside, utilizing the natural light outside. But, I still liked my casual outfit and wanted to share with you guys! My grey shirt is from Banana Republic for $8 on sale. The shirt itself is so soft and so comfortable to wear. The open back is a little too big for me, but it’s doable. It’s very casual, but it adds a little “oomph” to the outfit. Definitely recommend this casual tee to everyone, it’s so easy to pair. For myself, I paired it with my black jeggings that I got from TJMAXX years ago. I loved this casual outfit and will definitely repeat this outfit again.
You know what’s a piece of clothing that everyone should have in their closet? A pair of boyfriend jeans. Why? Because it’s so versatile. It’s lose enough to feel like you’re wearing sweats, but chic enough to look good. 😉
I got mine at JCPenny, obviously with coupons; because let’s be honest – clothes are expensive. These white boyfriend jeans were originally $60, but they were on sale for $19.99. Then, I had a $10 off coupon with 20% off or something like that; so I also got a pair of earrings ($9.99). The total for the two items came to be – $10!! How awesome is that?
** Mango is a brand in JCPenny, and it sells such great quality clothing and a lot of it is business casual.
Everybody needs a pair of casually ripped jeans in their closet this season, because it’s coming back in style! Remember when ripped jeans were “the coolest things” back in 8th grade? Yeah, I don’t either. Anyways, I got these ripped jeans a few months ago when I was taking a stroll at my local – Plato’s Closet. As I was walking, I saw these babies and I knew immediately I had to get it, and it was only $10 and they’re Levis Jeans!! As I held them in my hands, I kept saying, “please be my size, please be my size”…and guess what? THEY WERE! It was basically a match made in heaven with my jeans.
So this is my outfit for today, I paired my new FAVORITE ripped jeans with a white bohemian blouse that I got from Forever 21 a couple of years ago. Side note: the blouse is a size L, but I didn’t care because I wore it as a flowy blouse, so it works. Back to my outfit, I tied the whole outfit together with a pair of tan booties that I got from Charlotte Russe a couple of years back as well. Those booties are my GO TO booties whenever I need to put a nice, effortless look together.
