What I Want Wednesday

WIWW: Unconventional Outerwear

This coming cold season I’ve committed myself to stepping up my outerwear game. Whether that be loud and diverse coats, or different silhouettes, I’m willing to kick it up a notch. With new and trending things like leopard, velvet, or even plaid, the options for outerwear are truly endless. So enjoy some of my favorite picks and have a great week! Stay fab!

My 4th in Telluride, CO.

The 4th of July, or the day when people across the country gather around a campfire, dress in as many American flag themed pieces as their bodies will allow, watch some badass fireworks, and shovel watermelon down their throat like there’s no tomorrow. 

I just returned from a weekend trip to Telluride, Colorado for a camping experience with my two best friends. It was so many things, and uninteresting isn’t one of them. It rained, it was windy, we ate an insane amount of food, hiked until we couldn’t breathe or move, and all around enjoyed (sort of bc we were all really tired and cranky) each other’s company. Like I said last year, I’m not a nature-y person, it’s just not who I am. I’ve never been one to jump on the opportunity to go outside, but I make exceptions for camping. While the weather was  muggy and moody, I still found a way to be completely in awe of the beauty of the nature surrounding our campsite. The mountains are monumental and breathtaking at every time of the day, and it’s a view I’ll never get tired of. I figured I’d give a little glimpse of what my weekend looked like, and say happy fourth and stay fab!

WIWW: Cargo Green

As previously stated many times, I love army green. Something about it makes me feel so cool and chic. Whether it be a t shirt or a jacket, the color can be one of the most versatile out there. It’s fun, simple, and one of the most classic colors in fashion. While I’ve never been a huge fan of cargo in other colors, there’s something about green cargo that absolutely entices me. The second I laid my eyes on the cargo green jacket from Banana Republic, I knew this had to be the theme of this week’s WIW. So have a great week and stay fab!

WIWW: J. Crew Picks

J. Crew is one of those stores that dreams are actually made of. I dream of their clothes so often that I’ve bookmarked their website on my browser. While I have yet to actually purchase one of their pieces, I do see myself buying something in the near future. Anyways, their overall aesthetic is simple and clean style, which is one of my goals for my blog’s aesthetic as well. Their eccentricity is extremely minimal, but has a noticeable aspect to it. Little things like sequins on a button up, gingham on gingham, or revamped 90’s white kicks have the effect of an overall chice evocation out of its customers. The pieces I’ve curated all have simple looks, and that’s a good way to start from somewhere you’ve never shopped from before. (Also did I mention they have an entire section of STRIPES) So check out my picks below and have a great week, and stay fab!!

WIWW: Vintage 

I’ve been looking around and have found some extremely dope vintage pieces. I found a love for vintage clothing when I took my first actual shopping trip to a thrift shop and loved it! Clothes that are vintage have a cooler and “one of a kind” feeling to them than new clothes. 

These particular pieces are all curated from random places so I probably won’t link most of them. Nonetheless, each one entices me in a different way because it’s unlike anything I’ve ever worn before! I find them all to be super exceptional and unique in their own ways. Have a great week and stay fab!

WIWW: Unconventional 

What I mean by the title, is that the clothing put in the collage today, is stuff I usually wouldn’t find myself wanting as much as my more simple and crisp pieces. These particular pieces below represent the side of me that’s trying to be more loose and unusual with my style and the clothes I choose. That was one of my smaller New Years resolutions this year; to be courageous and less simple with my fashion. To take risks constantly, push boundaries, be less concerned with others thoughts and to be fun with fashion! That’s what it’s about, being confident, being risky, & bold, and feeling good in your clothes! Not only did I choose bold pieces, but I curated these from places I’ve never heard of, or usually wouldn’t find myself shopping in. So take a look at some random pieces I chose this week and stay fab!!
