Summer 2017 Wishlist // Must Have’s

Hey babes! I’ve spent some time doing some cleaning out of my closet and now I’m ready for some new and fun pieces to put into my wardrobe. I’m big on neutral tops and bottoms and pairing them with bold/statement jacket, shoes, and/or accessories. Here’s a list of items I feel like my closet is lacking. Feel free to roam these sites for yourself!


img_0422Phillipa Low Side Scoop Bodysuit | Every girl needs a white bodysuit. This one adds a fashion twist with some side boob action. I love it! You can find it here for $12 in a variety of colors. Like I said before, I love plain tops. I’d pair this with some denim shorts or jeans with the knees cut out, preferably in the color grey or black. You can even go the sporty route and wear this with leggings, a full zip hoodie, and some of your fave Nikes or Adidas.

Shelley Shirred Bandeau Maxi Dress|Who doesn’t love a good maxi dress? And I love the fact that this one is bandeau style!! You can pair this with cute metallic sandals or even tan strap-up sandals. And if you don’t like denim jackets, you can pair it with a floral (or any pattern of your choice) kimono! You can find this here for $24 in khaki, navy, berry, and black! The model in the photo is sporting this with a long necklace which I would definitely do so myself!

Niki Mustard Faux Suede Biker Jacket | THAT YELLOW! How could you resist?! Not only does this color pop on WOC, it is a fashion statement in itself! Try an all black fit underneath, or if you’re feeling frisky, go with all white. Any neutral tones would look under this jacket honestly. Even denim bottoms and a plain t-shirt would be cute. You can find this here for $62, which I find isn’t bad at all.

img_0426Crush Shorts – Light Denim| Here’s some high-waisted shorts with a little detail. I love the small amount of fringes at the bottom as well, but the lace up on the side is to die for! I’d go for a bodysuit, crop top, graphic tee, or shift top to pair nice with these babies! You can find these here for $35! Pair with some over the knee boots would look good too. These are definitely a must have for an edgy look for the summer!

img_0427Put Him On Read Shorts – Medium Wash | Ha. The name of these shorts is killer. It’s always good to have at least one medium wash and one light wash of denim shorts. I had an off the shoulder, all white bodysuit in mind with these. 😍 Maybe even a button down with some stiletto heels, pair it with a duster coat? A lot of looks you can do with these. And you can dress it up or down! You can find these here for $28.

Ankle-length Slacks | If you don’t own a pair of slacks, now is your chance. You can find these babies right here for $15. Not bad! I’d love to have a bold pair of slacks, only because I wear a plain tops most of the time. H&M offers a lot of different colors and patterns, like black, beige, black & white patterned, etc. I even went to the mall and saw these, and they had them in a burnt orange color. Pair this up with a peplum top, button down, a blazer, flats, heels, or even sandals. The style options are endless!

 

🌴FAVE OF THE MONTH🌴

Crochet Caged Cheeky Bodysuit 

img_0436

I see looks on Instagram get pulled with this all the time. I think this is definitely a piece every girl should have in their closet! Find it here. This crochet and lace bodysuit is just beautiful. I see girls also pair it with a lace bralette underneath for an extra intricate look. Of course denim would pair well, but what else? How about a leather skirt and simple black heels? Go for a millennial look and try pairing it with joggers and heels. That’s also a look I’ve seen on Instagram by Kylie Jenner, Karrueche, and other celebs.



 SHOE FAVES

Pointed Toe Suede Flats| I. NEED. THESE. I’m not big on flats but these right here… I seriously need. And only for 20 bucks! You can find these sleek taupe flats with metallic detail right here!

Open Toe Stiletto Heels | What a beauty, and in rose gold! You can find these here in silver, nude, gold, and black. Take these babies on a night out on the town with a bodycon dress and a statement necklace!

Florence Frill Detailed Heels | The frill detail is to die for!! I’m pairing this with a jumpsuit and duster coat! Find it here in nude, deep red, black, grey, and yellow!

NMD by Adidas | These have been out for a while but I haven’t gotten my hands on these yet! Definitely can dress these up or down with jeans, jogging suit, athletic wear, etc. You can find these here.



CUTE BAGS

Arcadia | Handmade in Italy, for just $150 this bag can be mine (and yours)! You can find it here. It’s all leather with dual chain handles, embossed details, gold tone hardware, and a detachable and adjustable shoulder strap.

Marc by Marc Jacobs | Who doesn’t love Marc Jacobs? This leather canteen crossbody bag is only $130, which isn’t bad for a brand like Marc Jacobs. Like Arcadia, it has a detachable and adjustable strap and also top carry handle. Find it here.

COMFY + CHIC // RIHANNA

Comfy + chic… the middleman for the laid back and stylish. Here’s some of my fave  comfy + chic looks from Robyn Fenty herself..

RR1
Rihanna spotted arriving at a nightclub, wearing Alexander McQueen.

The Puma brand ambassador wore a pair of McQ shoes by Alexander McQueen. These are the Run Lo in Moonlight (a mash up of pink, beige, blue, black and speckled detail). Although I’m not sure where she got her dress or flannel from, the popstar paired this plain fit with some chic accessories:

  • Adam Selman x Le Specs sunglasses ($119)
  • MCM train case ($495)
  • Custom ‘Fenty’ necklace designed by Jennifer Fisher.

DUPE THIS LOOK

Not bad huh? I’m very plain and simple with my color choices, but of course you can go with whichever colors of your liking! The Metallic purse makes the look stand in the middle of fun and plain jane. I chose Mac’s ‘Ruby Woo‘ ($17) as my red go-to shade but don’t hesitate to try something different! Now let’s move on to fit number two.

RR2
Rihanna was spotted in a Burberry python trench coat.

Fenty made green and pink look like the most perfect color combination ever with pieces from Burberry and Vetements. The trench coat with the sweatsuit – this is what I call comfy + chic! Now unfortunately finding a sweat suit like this on Polyvore was hard to find, so here’s my take on this look.

DUPE THIS LOOK

Who doesn’t love an all black fit? And there’s nothing more comfortable than wearing sweats.  The super cropped hoodie gives you an edge, likewise with the fishnet panties & simple bralette. I chose Metallic heels to spice up the black and hint of red with a dark red Metallic lip from Lime Crime as well – Similar to Riri’s look in a fun and sporty way!

Rihanna wore a tee by Isaac Sellam Experience as a dress.

Believe it or not, the dress Rihanna is wearing in this pic above is a men’s tee by Isaac Sellam Experience. It’s the Trouillard tee, which features straps dangling from the hem. Of course, it’s sold out but click here to view the current women’s collection or click here for menswear. Rihanna graced this look with Tom Ford’s padlock sandals. Leave it up to Rihanna to keep this look very simple, but here’s my take on this fit with a hint of EXTRA.

DUPE THIS LOOK

Unfortunately the Aldo White Strappy Sandals and Denim Jacket were sold out, but those are common items you can find just about anywhere. I see a lot of celebrities and every day people rock this fit and it’s definitely in my book for comfy + chic. You can even make it as simple as Rihanna’s look without the accessories and jacket. Now onto our last and my favorite look 😊

Rihanna rocked a Balenciaga jacket in New York

Rihanna rocked a Balenciaga jacket in new York

Rih rocked a blue and black jacket from Balenciaga‘s Fall/Winter 2016 collection. Made of canvas, the off-the-shoulder parka features a detachable hood and logo-embroidered stand collar.Underneath she sported a Roc Nation t-shirt. This is the Clearport tee ($45) and on the front is a graphic of a private jet and the label’s paper plane logo. Rih wore her own Fenty x Puma high heel sneaker boot in white, costing no less than $600. The shoes have Puma branding on the side, a Gothic number thirteen and a side zip closure. I love this look for the edgy feel that overrides its simplicity, yet the overall look is still pretty plain. This look definitely gives off comfy vibes with the t-shirt and jeans.

Comfy black skinny jeans can be found almost at any retailer and goes perfect with any graphic tee. Ankle boots are also very popular! I love to go all black (or any other neutral color) with a pop of color. The light mauve pink compliments the neon burnt orange very well. This is something I’d definitely wear to a date, the mall, or kick back with friends.

As we come to an end, I’d like to thank hausrihanna for the amazing pictures! Check out their site for Rihanna’s latest looks. In the meantime, take a look at a few other fits that go well with my Comfy + Chic theme! Thanks for reading ❤️

A Night Out On The Town

fullsizerender-2fullsizerender-3

Dress: Jasmine Off Shoulder Neck Detail Midi Dress in Black (Size 4)

Shoes: Liliana Triple Buckle Strappy Stiletto Heel (unavailable) in White from UrbanOG.com (size 7.5)

I got the chance to wear this lovely fit to my best friend’s birthday dinner two weeks ago and I loved every minute I spent with her and her family. The dress comes with a choker which is attached from the back of the dress, made from the same fabric as the dress. I paired this look with my apple watch with a black band to match my dress and kept it very simple looking. Very inexpensive look (besides the watch, haha)!
