“Swagger”

As we all know swag isn’t real. However, a lot of guys think it is and because of that they LOVE to sag their pants.  Doesn’t everyone know that’s not popular anymore? Apparently not. So, here is my tip to the guys: Wear your pants above your butt and maybe try out a belt. I’m bringing this up because lately I have seen some really outrageous outfits. This came to my mind after seeing this… In the mall with his girlfriend, this guy had his pants sagging so low that they literally looked they were just above his knees.  Here were my thoughts… 1. How do you walk? 2. How is that comfortable? 3. Because your pants are so low, you have to find xx long tee’s which aren’t improving your look at all.  I wanted to ask him if he needed longer pants because, if he pulled them up to where they should be then they would be too short. If that wasn’t the situation then I thought about asking if he needed some money for a belt. 😉 I was embarrassed for him and even more for his girlfriend.

Well… here are some examples of what you should and shouldn’t wear guys.

Yikes, right? It really isn’t attractive. Here is how you should wear pants…

For those who like skinny’s:

Note: The shoes worn with all of these were a terrible pick but Google just wasn’t giving me what I wanted! Please be picky about the shoes that you wear, they make a huge difference. I’ll talk about that more later. Now, back to fitted jeans!

For those who like more relaxed:

4 to 1 people. I don’t see any of them sagging so, just because J. Biebs does it  doesn’t mean it looks good.

I promise women find it 100 times more attractive and it has to be more comfortable! Try it out, I bet you’ll love it.

Girls, if you’re boyfriends sag their pants then tell them whats up! Don’t walk around embarrassed anymore. Help them look almost as good as you do. 😉

What did you wear this Wednesday?

Hello everyone, Happy Wednesday! Just think, the week is half over now! I don’t know about you but I know that Wednesdays are rough for a lot of people for different reasons but don’t let that effect how you dress!! When I woke up this morning I wasn’t feeling so hot and because of that I really just wanted to wear an over-sized t-shirt and my boyfriends hoodie to school. As soon as that thought came into my mind, I realized that putting a different shirt on and fixing my hair a little bit wasn’t going to take much more time than wearing the t-shirt and hoodie with a messy pony tail. For whatever reason you feel like wearing sweats, you woke up sick or on the wrong side of the bed, or you’re depressed because of the presidential election from the night before ;)… don’t wear them! Like I said in my Confidence post, your mood and feelings effect how you dress so try to change those emotions before getting dressed.

It took me about 5 more minutes to get ready in a more presentable way. While I was getting dressed I thought of a few tips that will help you out on days like this.

1. Always have a to-go outfit.
Here is what you need:

  • Your favorite pair of jeans (well fitted ones because you know your butt has to look good 😉 )
  • At least 3 of your favorite tops to choose from – ones you know you like and that you know you look good in.
  • A pair of shoes that go with any outfit
  • A fitted jacket for a colder day. Preferably one that zips so you can still see your cute top.

2. Stick with basic make-up. Even just having a little bit of mascara helps a lot!
Here is what I wear on a simple day:

  • mascara
  • blush
  • lip gloss
  • eyeliner (occasionally)

Like I’ve said in past posts, it’s so easy and worth it to take a couple extra minutes to make a better outfit. You’ll look and feel better throughout the day because of it.

Here is what I wanted to wear and what I ended up wearing:

Jeans: Miss me’s. I love how they fit and they aren’t overly embellished.

Shirt: Basic lightweight sweater. It could be considered an over-sized sweater but it’s not huge so you can still see my figure.

Shoes: Leopard print flats – I’ve surprised myself with how many outfits I’ve been able to wear them with.

Hair: Instead of just doing a basic pony tail, i braided each side of my hair and then put it in a pony tail.  To add a little extra, I wrapped some of my hair around the pony tail holder to hide it.

Accessories: I decided to go with earring only today. You can choose what you would like, earrings, necklace or both.

Over-sized Sweaters 101.

Who doesn’t love an over-sized, super comfy sweater when it’s cold outside? I know I sure do. Lucky for all of us, they’re rather popular and to my surprise, the guys like them too! Not only are they super quick and easy to put on, they are also “casual yet still flattering.” I’ve found a few examples of different fits and styles  for you to check out. Don’t think that these are the only ways to wear them either! There is such a variety of sweaters to choose from which means you can create a ton of different outfits.

These were just a few of hundreds of pictures to choose from for examples. If you’re still unsure of how to wear a sweater that you just bought or are wanting to buy don’t hesitate to Google “Oversized sweaters” for some more examples.

Here is the one thing to be careful of when putting an outfit together with an over-sized top…

Try not to look too lazy, don’t layer bulky on top of bulky. The knit infinity scarf and the Ugg boots just cross the line for me, but that’s just my opinion.

Don’t over-think these outfits, have fun with them! 🙂

Combat style.

Well, I finally found myself a pair of combat boots that I like… so I decided to find an entire outfit to show you that I would wear with them.

Jeans:

On the left I chose skinny jeans from buckle and on the right, as shown, they are from American Eagle. Both are a reasonable price.

Last but not least…my boots, and another pair that I really like:

This outfit works with both pair of boots that are used for my examples but it doesn’t mean that they are the only ones that work. Click on the link below them and check out some more!  Combat boots are really popular right now so don’t be afraid to try them out!! Be open to new styles; don’t think that you have to wear dark wash denim jeans with a leather jacket for this style to work. There are so many ways to wear these boots, so throw random outfits together and see if it works. 🙂

Happy Monday!!

What a perfect day to start the week… disagreed by many. We all just want to sleep in, even if its just for 5 extra minutes. Well, my outfit defiantly allowed me to do that today. I got dressed in under 5 minutes and in a great outfit!

Here is what i wore to school:

Yes, i am wearing leggings…again but i just can’t help it! They’re so comfortable and can be worn with almost any outfit. My hair, as you can see is just in a bun with a patterned headband. Quick, easy and cute!

Here are the accessories i chose:

and the shoes i wore :

There was another easy outfit that you could wear to school or even out somewhere if you are getting dressed quickly. Just remember…don’t wear sweats! You’re going to have higher self-confidence and be in a better mood throughout the day if you choose an outfit like this over sweats.

xoxo.
