Sex, Drugs and…

Sex, drugs & red soles. If only life was that simple.. Anyway, the best part about having this blog, since I don’t have unlimited funds, is I have to find things in my closet and reinvent them. Like these boots from Aldo I have had for ages and they are my go to casual boots, they normally come up to about mid-calf. I was so over every pair of shoes I have and as I sat there thinking I was like hmm.. I could totally fold those boots over! Voila, new pair of shoes. The point is sometimes you have the newest “must have” trend or a fresh new pair of shoes right in your closet, it just takes a little tweak for you to see it. My last post I wore sneakers, and now a bomber jacket. Sportswear was a huge trend on the Spring 2014 runways. It was huge for you men out there too, and it doesn’t mean a baseball jersey and basketball shorts. Bomber jackets are another must for spring. I say borrow your mans & roll up the sleeves, I’m so economical, or don’t be afraid to at least look in the mens section for yourself to find the perfect jacket! I got this one from Forever, which is great but since it is so mass produced I wanted to make it my own by adding some of my Grandma’s brooches, it classed up this sporty jacket and the sort of vulgar saying on the tee! Oops.

This post was supposed to be all about The Ohio State Buckeyes winning the Orange Bowl on Friday, hence the “yay we won” pose at the end, but now it will be focused strictly on fashion. As if I really knew what I was going to say if they did win! Anyway, for my outfits recently I can’t help but say they are inspired by Beyoncé. Cheesy I know, but if you listen to her album and watch the videos that accompany it you might understand. All of them are insanely sexy, cool and unapologetic of who she is. I tried to bring that casual, sexy and cool feeling to my outfit. The cropped trend is holding strong in 2014, so I paired my cropped sweater with a pencil skirt, which can be dressed up, but I wanted to keep it really casual. To maintain that chill vibe, I tied a plaid shirt around my waist, added a baseball cap and my favorite booties. The plaid shirt is from The Kooples, a French brand, it is on every corner in Paris, similar to our Starbucks, but for us here in the U.S it is worth checking out. This outfit is great for a cool Sunday brunch, to host a game night or to meet friends at a sports bar. When in doubt, just pretend you’re Beyoncé, life is more fun that way!
