Hello!!! :)

Sporty Chic is a common and popular trend that 2014 has adopted so well.
We have seen it on the runways, the red carpet and more commonly though street fashion. It is a trend that I have welcomed with open arms and am more than willing to continue embracing, indulging in all that blissful comfort.
The trend involves combining sportswear or a fashionable adaptation, with everyday fashion items and clothing. It is identified more commonly as a mix of sportswear teamed with feminine clothing and items.Just think of a baggie hoodie worn with boyfriend jeans, high heels and you favourite tote.

For those of you who have followed me from the start, you are no stranger to the fact that I grew up as a bit of a tomboy. Till this day, I find comfort in wearing my boyfriend, Chin’s baggy shirts, t-shirts and jackets, making this one of the reasons why I love this trend.

Being a typical girl, it’s that occasional indecisiveness when it comes to particular fashion choices that I hate so much. All you girls can back me up on this one, am I right? HAHAHA! You know what I’m talking about, the days that you draw a complete blank, staring into your closet with no idea what to wear.

I decided to post up this outfit in particular because it is on my re-wear/recycle list. It can be worn on a casual day out, teamed with a pair of sneakers and worn right into the night, simply just by switching to heels. Plus did I mention how amazing skorts are, I mean shorts and a skirt into one… BEST THING EVER!!!

These photos are apart of a collaboration I did with a photographer called Toàn Tran, he was also the technical talent behind my previous outfit post “Missing Summer”. I’ve been so excited about sharing the collaboration with you all because he did such an amazing job. Stay tuned, we have one more outfit post from our collaboration, so keep a look out for it ;)

Thanks for visiting and I’ll see you all soon with another post :)

The first time I came across this trend (sometime late 2011- early 2012) I thought for sure that I would never be able to pull it off.

As time passed, my choices and preferences have changed. Influenced by style icons and the fashionistas that I follow, it wasn’t till recently that I’ve been dying to have a pair to call my own.

I usually like rocking my out there colorful style, however, seeing these jeans take me back to my missed tomboy days.

So a couple of weeks ago I dragged my boyfriend Chin with me to find the perfect boyfriend jeans.

Now if you’re like me; broke, picky and difficult to fit. It can be hard finding the pair that is right for you.

Here are some (and when I say some, I really mean a small third) of the stores I visited and what I found:

Glue – They had a couple of styles to choose from, ranging from light to dark, great strong material and plenty of sizes to fit all. The only thing that bothered me was the prices, ranging from $180 – 200 and up, which I would happily spend if I found the right fit for me. But in this case, it was definitely out of a full time students price range and my version of perfect was no where to be seen.

Sportsgirl – I had big hopes walking into Sportsgirl, known for their up to date trends and stylish range of clothes. However, I found they were out of stock and out of my size :(. They did have some good substitutes in pleather and jersey material so I would definitely recommend paying them a visit.

Valleygirl – Know for their affordable fashion I did find a pair that was the right shade of stone washed denim but they too were out of my size. When I walked into their second store, in the same shopping center, they didn’t even know what boyfriend jeans were …… fashion retail FAIL!

Mossimo – Didn’t stock the boyfriend jeans but I did buy a really cool top which will be featured on here soon hehehe.

General Pants – Also a good range in style and sizes but if you’re like me, it definitely burns a hole through your pockets.

Zero – I finally found a pair that was the right size, the right shade and even though it was $200 I thought “Whatever, I’m over it! I should take it and go!” It wasn’t until my boyfriend Chin convinced me not to settle and just to keep looking (aw! bless his sweet supportive heart).

Just before I was about to give up and call it a day, we decided that we would try one more store and of course, it was in that last store that I found it! Finally after a whole day of disappointment, my perfect pair was in JAY JAYS!  Yup that’s right, good old affordable Jay Jays. They had a good range of sizes (including mine), the right colour and it was only $60!

So if your looking for your very own boyfriend jeans which is good quality and don’t mind spending a pretty penny, definitely check out Glue, General Pants and Zero.

But if you’re looking to save hundreds, get yours at Jay Jays.

If you’re not in a rush to get a pair, go online on ASOS, they have big range and offer sizes for the petite and curvy.

After wearing these jeans over and over again, they are awesome! Totally comfortable, can be worn casually as well as chic. Just between you and me, they are my new fat pants since its so baggy hehehe.

What do you think about the new boyfriend trend?

 

Next week I’ll be posting the final photos from the Bridal shoot I styled, so stay tuned.

Thanks for visiting, I’ll see you guys on Monday, have a good weekend :)

Funny story behind this photo, when we were taking photos, my brother Mark came to help. It was here that we thought it would be a funny idea to have him randomly stand in the background just for fun, almost imitating an ad. The photo was never going to be featured on the blog but it turned out so good so I had to share it with you hehehe.

Shirt – Zara Man |  Dress – Glassons  |  Leather Boots – Converse |  Hat – Tempt

The famous 90s grunge look is back, painted all over the fashion runways with plaid checkered shirts and dresses. One celebrity that wears the 90s look so well is Rita Ora. Her signature blonde hair and red lips in contrast to her olive skin is spreading like wild fire and any girl that can pull this look off, I take my hats off to.

I for one, have never fancied the whole grunge look. My world of lollipops for trees, marshmallows for clouds, unicorns for horses, usually attracts me to bright colors and girly prints. Now, even I have succumbed to the checkerboard plaid shirts and Converse shoes.

This look is trending more this season because you have the freedom to mix feminine pieces with masculine pieces of clothing. For me, I find that this gives me a happy medium. I can please the tomboy in me whilst keeping my style feminine and girly. It also allows you to personalise this trend to suit your own style.

To make this look work for you, these are essential pieces to stock in your wardrobe:

- Army colours, camouflage prints and parka jackets

- Earthy tones

- Ripped jeans and frayed items

- Doc martins or simple converse shoes

This outfit was my interpretation of the 90s grunge look. Still keeping it feminine, I wore a knitted pattern dress from Glassons and a white singlet dress underneath. Covering up with my boyfriend’s plaid shirt unbuttoned (I finally have an excuse to wear my boyfriend’s shirt, when I told him to buy it, secretly it was really for me :)). To give it a real 90s feel, I wore my leather converse boots and for a pop of colour, I wore my MAC Ruby Woo lippy.

This outfit was super comfortable and fun, I’m definitely going to be rocking more of the 90s grunge look this year.

What do you think about the 90s grunge trend?
