Piece of the Week: Black Aldo Backpack

img_7182img_6220img_5912img_5909

I’m in love with this bag. I got it as a gift from my best friend. I will honestly not be using this for school. It is too cute and boujee for high school. I take such good care of this like it’s not even funny. When I’m not using it, I leave it in a plastic bag and I’m so scared that I’m going to crease it. I love how spacious and roomy it is. Inside there is a zipped pocket and two pouches for sunglasses and pens. In the front pocket, the sequins are actually a mini  makeup bag. I have yet to find a use for it. It has a long gold chain that connects to the backpack. This is perfect for day trips and to use as a carry one bag, when travelling. I can’t wait to use it more often. Currently, it’s used as a purse when I alternate it with my Forever 21 purse. This is a great investment for those who travel a lot and don’t always want to carry a purse.

You can never go wrong with black and white for back to school. The easiest way to look cute for school is with basics! This outfit looks effortless and putting it together was effortless. When you don’t want to go back to school, being able to put together an outfit in less than five minutes is a blessing. I’ve had my plain white shirt for a while and I have put together endless of outfits with it. My tulle skirt is a staple in my wardrobe that’s perfect for school, church, and basically any occasion. It’s all about how you pair it. If you want a more casual look, than you can ditch the wedges and pair this look with your favorite sneakers. Versatile looks that can be dressed up or dressed down are perfect for school!

Bold in Blue Fit

This is actually one of my favorite dresses; it gives me young adult vibes. The bold blue works well with the melanin in my skin. I’ve noticed that bodycon dresses typically look better with my body type, so I usually gravitate toward them when shopping. The one thing I did not like about this dress is that the sleeves never stay down. I have to keep pulling on them in order for them to remain being off the shoulder. I am obsessed with my new bag. I got it for myself and I am loving it. It’s the perfect size and really matches the style of I’m going for. My suede pumps are also new. I’ve needed new pumps for a while and I was surprised when I bought these at Forever 21. They are a great quality and were only $20. This is definitely a look I will revisit again.

Sleeveless Cardigan & Bodycon Dress Fit

A simple, yet gorgeous fall outfit. I just love the way the cardigan’s texture’s and pattern looks against the burgundy. Personally, I love bodycon dresses. They are always very flattering, except this one kept rising up a lot which I didn’t like at all. You’ll probably continue to see these flats again. They are my go-to whenever I don’t feel like wearing sneakers or heels. They are cute, comfortable and work with everything. My love for this look comes from the simplicity of how it looks. The outfit isn’t overdone and no one piece is fighting for attention.

Bold Orange Bodycon Dress

img_5283-1

To me, a perfect summer outfit is something that isn’t restraining. I spend a good amount of my summer, wearing dresses and maxi skirts. I don’t really like shorts at all. Most of them are tight and make my thighs sweat. Shorts only seem to make me hotter; while dresses and skirts on the other hand, enable me to be cooler. Though this dress is a bodycon dress, it is not necessarily tight. I love how conservative this dress is, even if it is form fitting. I didn’t really accessorize this dress too much, because it just speaks for itself. My Happiness necklace was the perfect touch to add to this outfit. It is a very flattering dress that compliments my curves and my skin color.

LA T-Shirt & Orange Scarf Look

This is actually a fall outfit, but I would wear it in the summer during those freak cold days. My favorite part about this fit is my bright orange infinity scarf and the pop of color it gives. Perfect for on the go, all you have to do is tuck in a t-shirt and pull on a jacket. If you wanted to go out to a dinner with friends, this is the outfit for you. To dress it up jut swap out the sneakers for a pair of black, orange, or even white pumps. Personally, I don’t believe in “summer clothes” and “winter clothes.” Through all seasons, I layer my clothes and switch out certain pieces to accommodate, what I’m doing a certain day.

Piece of the Week: BOLD Sweatshirt

I usually hate sweaters, I can’t really stand anything long sleeve besides sweatshirt. But this sweater is oh so comfortable. It’s just like a sweatshirt, but not as thick. Perfect for windy days. I love the message behind it. BOLD stands for Becoming Our Live Dreams, basically meaning that we can do whatever we set our minds to do and achieve our dreams. I just pair this sweater with jeggings and my black statement sneakers for a simple and bold look.

Sweater: I don’t remember, sorry 🙂
