So apparently yesterday was the first day of spring, and I have to say I am SO done with this winter and ready to move on. Embracing a new season with new clothes. I have been dabbing into edgier looks with hip hop and skater influences (which are HUGE for spring -think Vetement & Supreme). So for today's look I am taking you on a velvet and leather journey with a bright orange hoodie and some killer over-the-knee boots!
During fashion week, I saw a lot of influences and celebrities wearing hoodies and I was eager to try out this look. With that in mind, I went to H&M and found this Creed orange hoodie which I am literally obsessed with. I adore bold colors and this bright orange just reads me all over it. Slightly longer, you can tuck it in your asymmetric mom jeans with white ankle boots or leather shorts and over the knee boots for a more polished look like I did. I also love a cropped version where you can show off your latest fishnet fixation. I am so glad that I can whip out my bomber jackets again and was so thrilled with this navy velvet bomber by NA-KD which I can pair with anything. Lined with white satin inside, this jacket is perfect in texture and thickness for spring time weather. Throw on a leather cap and sneakers and you have a great sporty casual outfit for everyday.
I love this leather and velvet number because it allows me to play in between the line of edgy and girly. Reflective of my current mood, my accessories have to be equally badass yet still retain a certain elegance, so that its still me. Hence it brings me to this Gucci Marmont Matelasse bag which I got for my birthday this year and now I have officially gotten back on the Gucci bandwagon. Gucci always has a special place in my heart because it was my very first designer bag that I ever got. It represented such a moment for me and my husband that I would never forget:) Originally, I was going to get the blush color which they didn’t have in store; so instead, I ended up with the classic black with gold chain and I have to say I really love it! With its soft chevron leather and pink suede interior, I was worried about the small size but it was just right to fit all the things you really need. I can comfortably fit my key, wallet, sunglasses, makeup and even a travel-size bottle of mouthwash. It is a super practical and cute bag and I mean black just goes well with everything right? Not only that, it also matches perfectly with these awesome over-the-knee leather boots which I have been searching for religiously. You will be seeing me lots in this bag and boots so be prepared!
