“Oh don’t you dare look back, just keep your eyes on me. I said you’re holding back. She said ‘just shut up and dance with me’…” A very interesting way to start out a post. I can’t help it though. These words are part of the lyrics from one of my favorite songs lately called “Shut Up and Dance With Me” by Walk the Moon. This particular song just happens to be stuck in my head as I type this.
No, your eyes are not deceiving you. You are seeing an outfit post here on the blog! It’s been a while since my last one, a little over two months to be exact. Keeping it casual for my “comeback outfit post” and wearing my favorite pair of sunglasses, which may or may not be covering up some major dark circles. Nothing like the upcoming 4th of Julyholiday to stir up some outfit inspiration, eh?
details: forever21 classic fedora, sincerely jules “celfie” tee, jcrew tuxedo blazer (SIMILAR . Also love THISblack version), bailey 44 leather & lace sweatshirt, stuart weitzman “for scoop” leather platform booties (SIMILAR), current/elliot jean coated jeans, alexander wang rockie duffel bag (I found much more AFFORDABLE options recently at TJ Maxx!), tag leggings quilted pleather leggings (SIMILAR and affordable version HERE), markus lupfer sequined fox sweater, essie “wicked” nail polish (love THIS gorgeous color too) , nars “autumn leaves” lipstick
Cravings. They can be quite pesky and annoying sometimes and not always good to indulge in. However, there is nothing pesky or annoying about the cravings I’ve been having lately for a select few fall fashion items. Feel free to indulge ladies!
I’ve had many “cravings” over the past few seasons, however, lately it’s been all about graphic tees, leather and lace, a great pair of booties, a whimsical sweater sweater that begs the question – #whatdoesthefoxsay (haha!) , a “fall fedora” and more. The above are a few great key basics that I’ve had my eye on lately. Start with the basics and build from there; a philosophy that has so far suited me quite well so far fashion-wise!
What are a few keys pieces you’ve been eying lately?
Glamo. Yep, I think that’s the word I’ll make up to describe this look. That and risky business. Mixing tweed with camo?! What? What was I thinking?! Well, I was thinking that I want to really test this print mixing thing. It could have turned out disastrous, but I think it didn’t turn out too bad.
outfit details: top – target (similar), jeans – old navy, shoes – charlotte russe, clutch – dolce vita, watch – target (old), bracelets – Ida Red (local Tulsa boutique) / Threadsense , ring – forever 21 *super cute option here), lips – Nyxx in “beige”
Animal print, zebra print more exactly, will never go out of style in my opinion. As much as I LOVE leopard print, zebra print was my first love. In the height of the black and white trend going on right now, I thought this was a fun little twist on the trend.
Which do you like better – leopard print or zebra print?
Black and white. Black or white. Black and white. Keep saying it over and over again and what does it make you think of? A certain song maybe? Well, famous songs aside, lately it’s seemed to be a “black and white jungle” on the fashion scene lately. Have you noticed? Of course you have. But hey, are you surprised? What’s more classic, easy to wear and style than black and white?

Camo people. I’m wearing camo. When this trend first emerged last fall, I didn’t quite know what to think. Honestly, for me, wearing camo was only something hunters or army personnel wore. Wearing camo in everyday life?! But, I continued to see it more and more, and once I saw the many different ways it could be styled, it grew on me. So, like certain other trends, when I finally decided to “jump on board” (hey, better late than never, right?) and saw this cute embellished and sparkly camo top at Forever21, I went for it!
I decided if I’m going to wear camo, I’m going to wear it right and wear it my way – styled with a great pair of boyfriend jeans cute peep toe pumps, a funky bag and bracelets, a little rose gold and a bright red lip. So, here ya go folks…definitely not your average camo. Dare I say…..”Glam-0“??? Ok, maybe not, but hey, it’s definitely “glammed up” camo! 😉
I must know – what do you think of this trend? Would you rock it?

I’m currently in a state of just wanting to dress comfortably. Maybe it’s the heat, but regardless, when moods like this strike, jeans, wedges and a cool tee or breezy top are my “summer uniform” Yes, I did say jeans during the summer, but hey, what can I say? I love me a good pair of jeans (f course the summer temps do make me wear a more of capri or boyfriend jean)! However, no matter how casual of a “dressing mood” I’m in, I always try to add a little bit of bling. 😉

Decided to change things up a bit with this outfit post! Presenting me in “live action“! Haha! Just yet another example of me going to my “happy place” fashion-wise in some more great bright color. Coral is a very coveted color so far this spring season in both fashion and makeup. Fine with me! Coral is a color I’ve always loved and will definitely continue to love throughout this spring and coming summer season!
