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.

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 ❤️

Less is More | Ways to Detox Your Life

Have you ever looked at your life and thought about how you have so much to do yet not enough time? Have you ever seemed unsatisfied even after getting what you want? Or find yourself wanting more? I tend to do this a lot as a college student. Trying to do it all, be it all, and have it all is exhausting. All too often we tend to push ourselves to be the best, and end up realizing that some of the things we want aren’t really that important. Recently, I’ve started reading “Less is More” by Domonique Bertolucci. I encourage you all to read it, but in the mean time here’s some knowledge that I’ve gained and would like to share with you all. ❤️

“Take care of your body. Its the only place you have to live.” – Jim Rohn

Spring Cleaning

You don’t have to wait ’till spring to do some spring cleaning – physically, emotionally, and spiritually. If you’re not careful, toxic people can negatively influence the way you think, feel, and behave.

Toxic People

They can introduce unnecessary stress into your life and cause chaos that will drag you down. Those who waste your time, criticize you all of the time, play victim, and constantly disappoint you… G2G! If you find yourself talking negative about them a lot, blaming them for your behavior, or even feel like they are dwindling your self-esteem… G2G! Oh and also, learn to say no!


Be Present

These two words can make a huge difference in simplifying your life. Living here and now, in the moment, keeps you aware of life, of what is going on around you and within you. It does wonders for your sanity.

  1. Find inner simplicity. I have found that spending a little time with my inner self creates a peaceful simplicity rather than a chaotic confusion. This could be time praying or communing with God, or time spent meditating or journaling or getting to know yourself, or time spent in nature. However you do it, working on your inner self is worth the time.
  2. Develop equanimity. If every little thing that happens to you sends you into anger or stress, your life might never be simple. Learn to detach yourself, and be more at peace.
  3. Free up time. Find ways to free up time for the important stuff. That means eliminating the stuff you don’t like, cutting back on time wasters, and making room for what you want to do.

Learn what “enough” is.

Our materialistic society today is about getting more and more, with no end in sight. Sure, you can get the latest anything. More stuff. But when will you have enough? Most people don’t know, and thus they keep wanting more. We also look at others and wish our life was like theirs. We look at our lives and aren’t satisfied. We sometimes become jealous and start trying to live a life that was not made for us.  It’s a never ending cycle. Get off the cycle by figuring out how much is enough. And then stop when you get there.

  1. Practice moderation. 

    “Nothing is more deliberating than living a life of extremes. If you want to live a long and healthy life, make sure you try a bit of everything and not too much of anything.” – Domonique Bertolucci

  2. Limit your media consumption.  I believe that the media in our lives — TV, radio, Internet, magazines, etc. — can come to dominate our lives. Don’t let it. Take a break. Simplify your life and your information consumption by limiting it. Try a media fast. Turn your phone for a few minutes a day and be present.
  3. Be content. Love your life. Be happy with your growth and where you are now. Appreciate the people God sent you, they are there for a reason.  Don’t look for satisfaction in the way someone else is living their life because their life wasn’t meant for you. Appreciate His blessings because your life could always be worse.

“Happiness, true happiness, is an inner quality. It is a state of mind. If your mind is at peace, you are happy. If your mind is at peace, but you have nothing else, you can be happy. If you have everything the world can give – pleasure, possessions, power – but lack peace of mind, you can never be happy.” – Dada Vaswani
