It’s so exciting that coat season is finally here because sometimes you can be lazy for your outfit but be effortless chic at the same time with a classic coat. Although Houston has been pretty chilly these few days, this look is actually from my San Francisco trip I went on a couple of weeks ago. I was excited that it was chilly enough for me to wear my coat out there while Houston was 88 degrees. Continue Reading…
I still feel like because of the weather craziness, the transitional season is not over yet and we all know, this time of the season can be expensive. So, instead of crying over that you can’t spend a dime on your wardrobe because of your summer vacation expenses; revisit your beloved closet and grab a favorite piece from the past seasons, make sure it is still wearable based on the climate, and wear it differently.
There are times that I get stock between 80s and 90s trends specially when I’m homesick and missing my mom. Since I’m in my mid twenties, all I can think of is what my mom used to wear in her twenties (In 1990s). Her wardrobe was filled with all 90s goodies, different bodysuits, high waist denim pants, crop tops and a little throwback of 80s, oversized blazers with shoulder pads.
I can say this look is the offspring of these two decades, but more on a settle side (No Neon Please). There is something cool about oversized blazers; I think they make you stand out from other women in public since most of women are into more of a tailored and slim fit ones or I should say more feminine styles. Believe it or not, they make me feel sexy, and they give a bit of Parisian vibe to the outfits. I preferably try to find the ones that are larger than my size (here the blazer is 8 size bigger) :), but if I decide to buy them from the boys department, I like the ones without or minimal sleeve buttons because rolling up the sleeves is way cooler than hiding our sexy arms and wrists underneath them. The length of these type of blazers is perfect, right below the butt, which complements a pair of high waist denim pants (related post), shorts, and skirt suitably. There shouldn’t be any special occasion to wear them; in fact you can wear them all the time in most seasons.
For this look, I wore the blazer with a pair of high-waist shorts that I basically live in since I bought them, and chose the red bodysuit to give the look a bit of color and make it not too dressed up. Guys! You can never go wrong with the strapped sandals. I promise you they go with everything in your closet. They are basically my to go shoes, and I’m sure you saw them many times in my blog posts. Last but not least, I thought Gold accessories would complement this look properly. Since it says 1990 on the body suit, I wore my favorite gold choker and layered it with a double gold necklace. Also, I couldn’t resist not having an arm party, so I grabbed my gold cuff and paired it with the necklaces.

I still can’t believe how beautiful the weather was in San Francisco. I love wandering around the city because every corner feels picture perfect. Let me tell you something, people in SF never get bored. There is always something to do, hiking, surfing, watching sea lions for hours at the pier, visiting the Golden Gate and Bay bridge, museums and Alcatraz, shopping at the heart of the union square and I can go on and on. 🙂 I always suggest to my non-Californian friends to stay at least 5 days in the city to just explore the whole city, and the next upcoming trip take 3 days to adventure the beautiful cities around San Francisco. Every time I go back home, I try to sight see the different part of the city. This time, my family and I decided to visit the Lands End and part of the Golden Gate Park since it is spring and the weather was perfect that day. I mean clear beautiful blue sky and No Fog! 🙂
The weather and the relaxed vibe of the city inspired my casual outfit for the day. What makes a perfect relaxed outfit for me personally is the one that combines comfort and style together flawlessly, and that’s exactly what this ensemble does. I really like the color and texture combination of this outfit. The bright blue denim is complemented nicely by the brown tones of the shirt and shoes. The fringe pants are a great way of blending a fun playfulness with a chic refinement. To me, it’s important to mix and match fabrics when my outfit is a little more minimal and simplistic because I think it keeps a look more interesting. Even the high-waist jeans add another dimension, making it a bit more fashion forward. I chose a Silver bag to break the black and make the bag stand out more.
What do you guys think about the look?
Have a fabulous weekend
