This past Thursday night Triiin & I went out dancing with our friend Kwith. We went to a spot called Footsies that was full of good music & good vibes. Here are a couple shots from the night as well as what I was wearing. I couldn’t take any good outfit shots until after so excuse the deteriorating condition of my chunky braidout, lol.
Ahhh yesterday…a busy day, filled with summer school, interviews (for upcoming news stories), and errands. But within all of that was a little spot of bliss. I stopped by a park, well me & my bestie…I’m rarely ever alone without her <3…and we were able to get a couple shots out in nature. The sun was high in the sky so we, hopefully, got a nice little chakra charge as well. Hard not to if you stay outside in this Texas weather long enough 🙂 …
p.s. : the jeans I’m wearing were customized by me. Triiinity & I offer customization services via Free Spiiirit, however our customization services are not limited to denim. We sew, create, and transform any piece you can give us! If you are interested in our customization services contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a consultation.
I’m here today with a wishlist item of the day for you guys.
Cheetah Harem Pants
These pants really called out to me. I love cheetah print and harem style pants are just so comfortable and chic at the same time! Combining the two is definitely a fashion WIN. Definitely an item I’d like to add to my wardrobe. I could rock ’em so fiercely, too I just know it! The bottoms are Anna-Kaci Sepia Brown Cheetah Safari Urban Hip Hop Roar Leggings Pants and they come in S/M fit. They are pretty inexpensive, too and can be purchased here for just $21.90.

Hers are not quite as harem-y, but you get the picture.
Hey dolls ! I am here with the top 5 things a fashionista just can’t do without for the summer. Let’s get right to it !
Sunnies are the ultimate summer accessory! They shield your eyes from the blinding rays while making you look glam. Pick up a pair in a bright, fun color, cool shape or funky print, or go for the classic-style shade. Whatever suits your style!
The Summer Dress
Dresses are ideal for summer time, especially the one with a flirty cut and tropical-esque floral print like the one above. Whether mini, midi, or maxi, when selecting a summer dress, make sure it is flattering to your figure and has breathable material and cut for the warm weather. The floral print blouson dress above is from Forever 21 and costs $24.80.
The Swim Wear
C’mon, its summer! You gotta have a little fun in the sun, and that usually involves getting wet. Whether for a trip to the beach, or the neighborhood pool, you gotta be ready to pull out your swimsuit at a moments notice. There is a vast variety of cute popular swimsuit cuts for Summer 2012. From the retro cut to the one shoulder, be sure to pick the swimsuit that will be most flattering to your body type. It’s the best way to ensure you will be confident and avoid embarrassing wardrobe malfunctions.
Who wears short shorts? We wear shorts! Its summer, its hot, and you can’t wear pants all the time. Embrace the heat with shorts. You can wear basic denim cut-offs or switch it up some shorts with a quirky print. The ones above are shorts by The Pretty Junk from Asos Marketplace & cost $83.60.
Sandals are a definite summer staple. Feel free to show off that fresh pedi in some strappy open-toed kicks! My advice is to stock up on as many pairs as you can because they are the one thing you will probably wear everyday of the summer, or close to. This pair is from Forever 21 and is only $12.80!
Whether it be a peter pan style (like the one above) for my girly-girls or a fierce, pointed style for my edgier ladies, the use of collars to emphasize the neckline have come back in a major way. The focus on collars has been seen on teen actress Hailee Steinfeld and various other fashionable celebs.
(embellished collars like these are all the rage)
This trend doesn’t just stop at shirts. Many collar necklaces have also begun to pop up as a way of adding a fierce statement collar to any outfit.
Lastly, the most creative and affordable way people are embracing this trend is through DIY. Many have opted to cut the collars off of old button downs and embellish them, using them as necklaces.
The collar trend is one that can be embraced in almost any style, from classic to rocker chic. And with so many options, collar-style can be embraced on practically any budget! This is a trend-win in my book.
