Shopping 101 -The Men’s Section

You know who always has the best selection of hoodies? Forever 21 -the men’s section. If you haven’t checked it out, what are you waiting for? When I’m looking for a hoodie, I’m looking for straight comfort; no frills, no fuss. I like them long and over-sized, so I do my part to support the athleisure movement by adding a pair of leggings (not this day, but most of the time) and my go-to Nike sneakers. To me, there’s something about dressing masculine that brings out your femininity more. I look cozy not bulky, you know¬†none of that sloppy sweat pant look. Even when you’re out running errands, you don’t have to look like it. ūüėČ As much as I love to dress up, I know some of you are more inclined to dress casually so I wanted to show you how I do causal.

What do you think? Do you ever shop in the men’s section? What’s your go-to casual look?

Bodysuit -A Love Story

Every season, there comes a trend that catches your eye and runs away with your closet. I present to you my trend crush, the lace up bodysuit. Lately I’ve been adding flirty touches to an otherwise very sexy look. This trend is everywhere, it’s the go-to item for the laid back fashionably savvy. You can wear it with jeans, (as per muah) a pencil skirt, an a line skirt or whatever bottom you wish. I went back to my distressed Topshop denim¬†because to tell you the truth it’s the only pair of denim I have that are high rise and that’s the look I was going for, a pair of Nike sneakers -just do it! Then I topped it off with my BFF- best faux fur.

As you know I’m not afraid to try out trends of the moment. I always try to make sure it still feels like me and my personal style. You never want to be amongst the sheep, letting the trend wear you or simply copying (gasp!) straight from someone else’s outfit. Always wear something that feels natural to you and what you like.

What’s your favorite trend this season?

Are you adding fur to your Winter wardrobe? Are you using it to cover up those revealing bodysuits? ūüėČ

Lucky Number 7!

Football is a sport that is an exciting and exhilarating American past time. If you’re anything like me, no matter how casual the event is, I like to have the option of wearing high heels even if it is just going to the bar and watching a big game.

Everyone looks forward to get through the holidays just to get to the Super Bowl. I’m rooting for Colin and the 49ers one hundred percent! Crossing my fingers! Now I’m not close to being a football expert, but I can dress for the occasion with Fanatics. Fanatics has an overwhelming amount of NFL jerseys¬†to choose from on their website, but I stayed true to my love for the color red and of course the 49ers. Football season is a cold one and sometimes you have to pile on layers like this leather jacket to keep warm. So, don’t forget your hats, scarves and gloves.

I chose a pair of Levi’s jeans, a perfect fit to watch the 49ers playing at their home, Levi’s stadium. Don’t forget to pump it up in leopard heels, furry clutch and midi rings. ¬†I¬†like to give every outfit or trend a glamorous touch so while I root for my favorite team in the stands or at the bar, I still feel like myself. A girl has to always look her best wherever you choose to watch the game!

What’s your favorite football team?

Are you a true Fanatic?

Who’s ready for some Thursday Night football?!

xoxo, Budget$ai
