#OOTD Tumblr Pink

If you don’t know Tumblr, think of it as the teenager to Pinterests mom. Recently, I’ve been spending time on the site & building an inspirational body of images on it. The amount of themes, photographs and designs available on it will have your imagination on fire!

Tumblr pink is a concept I read about in an article posted on fashionista.com (link at the bottom of this post). It highlighted the evolution of this subdued, pastel pink hue that has transformed in our culture from its girly and ultra feminine references to it becoming ultra modern and edgy. It makes sexy appear tough, blurs the lines of masculinity and femininity because each gender can wear the color proudly. The dynamics of this color began when Pantone announced Rose Quartz and Serenity as colors of the year for 2016. This color has been used on many ads, in music videos like Hotline Bling by Drake, in tech like the rose gold iPhone and laptop. It’s encompassed a variety of industries for multiple purposes and it draws consumers when ever present. It’s the “hey, look at me” color of the moment and it seems like it’s just building up stem.

Heres my #ootd that coincides perfectly with the new blossoms popping up everywhere throughout the city,  Pared with a badass leather jacket that has a minimalistic style, draws the attention to the long pink cardigan by Boohoo.com and emphasized by the Joe Fresh oversized scarf. Added with my Sketchers sneakers, my daughter and I are ready to enjoy the cool days ahead!

These boots were a major throwback for me…

#fbf lol circa 2007’ish (?)

These boots were my first major purchase as a teen. I felt so grown and awesome because, at the time, I hadn’t seen many people wearing Moccasins.

At one point, I got really tired of these knee high boots and tucked them nicely away for a long time in a corner of my closet. Lately, the weather has been warm for this holiday season, when it should be well below the 50’s F. Sneakers leave me too exposed to the cool air but winter boots are heavy and hot. I decided to revive these boots since they’re extremely comfortable yet warm, albeit, don’t look it. The fringe is a classic touch of charm without looking over produced. The Forever 21 mini knit dress has a geometric pattern that gives like an overall, fifty shades of blue, bohemian look. I loved how round and perky my belly looked through this dress. Thank goodness for knit & spandex cause maternity clothes looks horrible on my petite body.

#OOTD x Pregnancy

Where do I even start…I’m huge & I’m only getting bigger by the weeks. I found out about my pregnancy early in May, at the time it still seemed a bit unreal because I wasn’t showing and everything still fit perfectly. Lately, though, its been more of a challenge to keep up with some basic things that I took for granted pre pregnancy.

&& if your curious about the gender, don’t worry, it’s an alien  👽

😅 lol jp. I’m having a baby girl.

I was recommended by other moms that I should have a sense of humor about this journey, a la Ali Wong: Baby Cobra.

I’ve filtered plenty of things out of my closet because of the fast and growing changes of my body #nobodygoals #miniball. I’ve just been really thankful for all the stretchy, knit and spandex’y fabrics that I’ve passionately collected throughout the years. I took advantage of a beautiful sunny day by wearing something off the shoulder, like this top & these awesome Ray Ban aviator sunglasses that pumped some serious mojo to the rest of the look. Coupling the outfit with my favorite bag with faux gold detail for added touches cohesiveness, I was ready to set sail (figuratively).

Thankfully, Fall just started in NYC & I’m looking forward to getting some key outerwear pieces and some killer accessories to add definition to my growing body, baby and what ever life challenges ahead (literally, I’m talking about 30 degree mornings with very little heat to welcome you out of bed).

 

 

#OOTD x Streetwear: Wednesday

Lately, I’ve been wearing a lot more hats and I’ve come to realize that it has so much versatility from hiding bad hair days, uplifting any outfit & instantly creating a more casual, easy going feel mood. The color of the hat is anywhere from grey to light blue (?) I can’t really tell but because its one of those random light colors, it blended really nicely with the different tones of my wardrobe. My take for streetwear is comfort (life’s already tough enough) but also attractive. Now that its the beginning of the fall season, I’m ready for more layers, especially with sweaters. NYC’s cold for seventy-five percent of the year and I know I can’t have enough outerwear. Hope you liked the look (and the local street cat that kind of reminds me of batman)!

NASTY GAL, NASTY GAL, NASTY GAL… I remember looking at their ads on Facebook and never really taking the time to explore their website back then. It wasn’t until all my girlfriends were taking about the clothes that I had to see what the hype was about. Then I read the #GIRLBOSS autobiography and I was completely taken away by Sophia Amoruso.  When I went on my trip to California, I was so excited to find the Nasty Gal store in Santa Monica. I fell in love  with these sneaker heals but didn’t get them right away and it wasn’t until I saw them on sale on the site that I knew these colorful sneaker heals (wedges?) had to be mine.
