I’m back and I have very exciting news for you guys!
It was a normal mundane day when a notification popped in my phone, “Hello from American Apparel”. Yup, your girl just kind of partnered up with one of her ultra favorite brands — American Apparel.
To be really honest, it’s always been one of my mini dreams to be noticed by this brand. Their clothes are just so me. Classic-casual daily grind fashion that you can actually wear everyday in the real world. Simple silhouettes and classic cuts that hug your body in the right curves, just my aesthetic.
You guys have probably noticed on Instagram that I haven’t been wearing shorts lately. Opting for nice comfy mom jeans that hug my waist perfectly instead. Also being the sneaker girl that I am, I’ve been braving the world of wearing heels for these past few weeks. This pair from Bershka being one of my two ultra favorite pairs with just the right amount of height so that I won’t end up torturing myself for the duration of the day.
Two random style tips I came up relevant to this outfit:
- If you’re wearing a loose bottom, balance it out with a fitted top – well, I guess this is common sense. Stick with this rule if you want to stay on the safe side. Of course, it’s always good to experiment. I’ve tried a few loose on loose outfits myself and it turned out pretty well. Just make sure to have to mini dress rehearsal first to see if it looks well put-together.
- Experiment with different clothing genres – lately, I like mixing “classy” pieces with somewhat “street” pieces. Heels with baseball caps, sneakers with sleek blazers, or again, neutral colored heels with a camouflage printed jacket. Again, don’t be afraid to experiment. I was never the girly type, so I really can’t go all pure frills and girly-ness.
I’m super excited to show you all my loot from American Apparel! Til the next post, loves.
