Girly Meets Street Style

Hey y'all, here is another outfit of the day post. This outfit is from Saturday when I had to go to work.  Funny story, I actually showed up to work 30 minutes early so that one of my coworkers could take these pictures. If y'all haven't noticed I've been wearing a lot more color lately. The main reason is probably because brightly colored clothes contrast very well with my grey hair.  It finally started getting warmer out and I also desperately need to do laundry so I wore a skirt. For this outfit I went for another girly street style look by pairing a long sleeve tie dye t-shirt with a denim skirt and my checkered slip on Vans. I had also brought along my distressed denim jacket in case I got cold, which I ended up not needing, since like I said it's been getting warmer. My t-shirt is just a basic Hanes tee, my skirt is from Old Navy, and like I said my shoes are Vans. I am back at trying to be more consistent with my blogging, so be on the look out for more posts from me! I am also trying to create Youtube videos more consistently as well, so click on the Videos tab to check out my recent videos. See y'all next time!

Valentine's Day

Hey y'all! So as all of you know, yesterday was Valentine's Day. I didn't really do anything to celebrate as all of my plans fell through, but this is what I wore during the day yesterday. During the day I simply just went to class and hung out with friends. If you know me, then you know that I am obsessed with Adidas and graphic tees right now. I recently bought both this Adidas Jacket and this Sriracha tee from my job. I thought that the colors in the jacket and the shirt complimented each other very well. I'm obsessed with these distress jeans of mine from Charlotte Russe and my checkered slide on Vans and decided to wear them yesterday as well. I felt as if all these pieces put together created a girly street wear look My makeup look was inspired by the colors in my t-shirt and jacket. I used my Juvia's Place "Saharan Palette" on my eyes, the Elf blush palette in the color dark on my cheeks, and my Wet n Wild Illuminator palette in "Catwalk Pink". Be on the look out for an upcoming Youtube video on how I created this makeup look. If you watch myValentine's day Lookboook video, you can see another way I styled this jacket and find inspo for other date night outfit.

Upbra Cleavage Enhancing Bras

I got a chance to try out these cleavage enhancing bras by the brand Upbra. This brand handmakes their bras in Califrnia. Upbra has worked to achieve the perfect adjustable lift-up and cleavage bra. After trying these bras I would definitely recommend them to everyone. I received Upbra's strapless bras in black and nude. The bras also came with a thank you know and instructions on how to make sure these bras give you the best comfort and lift. I've never experienced this kind of lift from a strapless bra before, so I loved that. Upbra bras also feature adjustable straps inside the cup as well to provide even more of a push up. Upbra expands beyond strapless bras by also providing a swim line and t-shirt bras. They have even started producing their popular strapless bras in a wider variety of stylish colors. Check out Upbra and all of their amazing products here.

Game Day Style

Alayna needed help finding outfits to wear to football games, so I picked out these outfits for her back in September. Alayna only planned to attend a few games this season I only found 3 outfits for her. Since she is a college student, I helped her shop on a budget by finding these outfits from Plato's Closet. She had said that she wanted to shop the clearance section in order to stay within her budget of $50, but unfortunately we weren't able to meet that goal as I was not able to find anything that fit what she was looking for while she was on clearance. Alayna said she already owned plenty of accessories so I only looked for clothes when shopping for her. Alayna described her style as vintage and chic, which is what lead me to pick out these outfit combinations for her.  I was so happy that Alayna liked the looks I put together for her to wear to the home games!

Black Perspex Heels

While in New York earlier this summer I was shopping on Times Square in the huge Forever 21 and I saw these heels and I fell in love with them. I've really been in need of a strappy pair of black heels and the clear heel made these extremely trendy as well. The Forever 21 turned out to not have these in my size so I ended up having to order these online once I got back to the states. I ended up wearing these when I went out at the end of July and my feet were actually KILLING me by the end of the night. I'm still gonna keep these heels despite the pain I experienced. In the future I won't spend the whole night on my feet whenever I wear them. I would post the link to these shoes but unfortunately they're not on the Forever 21 website anymore. Be on the lookout for my outfit post from when I wore these heels!

Never Let Them Ride your Wave

Hey y'all I know I've been MIA lately but I'm finally back to blogging! As y'all saw in my last post I was studying abroad this summer from May to June. Shortly after I came back I had started summer school, which I was attending everyday, and on top of that I was working nearly 40 hours a week. My schedule has finally cleared up a bit and now I am back to blogging and I'm gonna try and start consistently vlogging too! So once I got back into the states one of the first few things I did was order some new summer must haves. Some of these summer must haves include these new 2 pieces that I ordered from The first swimsuit is the "Beauty" one piece swimsuit in red. This is a cheeky one piece with a side boob cut out and cheeky cut bottoms. I love this one piece as it is cute, comfortable, and well made. I ordered this swimsuit in a medium. My second swimsuit that I ordered is the "A-class" swimsuit in white. I already have this one in black and I liked it so much that I had to order it in another color. White and black are actually the only colors that this swimsuit comes in. I think I actually like the white swimsuit better as it has adjustable straps that allow me to change how it fits. I ordered this swimsuit in a medium. This swimsuit also shows off your side boob, has a low back, and cheeky cut bottoms. For those of you who want to shop with Swim Classy don't forget to use my discount code "JANAI" when you checkout!

    This is what I wore on A-day to tailgate in. I ordered this two piece online from Knowstyle. This is the first time that I've actually ordered from them and I will definitely order from them again. This brand is very similar to Fashion Nova and even carries some of the same outfits. So if you're a fan of Fashion Nova then you'll love this brand as well. I paired this floral set with some tan platform sandals that I bought from my store. I paired it with a tan choker that I bought from Target, my Kate Spade studs, and my mirrored cat eye sunglasses that I also got from my store. Honestly I was a bit over dressed for tailgating but they say its always better to be over dressed than under. I was worried about being too hot in this outfit but fortunately the fabric is thin and the sleeves have slits and it was windy so I was pretty comfortable. 


Issa Look

    I wore this outfit last week to class and then I wore it to work afterwards. My gold chain was my mom's, I got my glasses from my job, my flannel is thrifted, my dress is from Missguided and my shoes are converse.

I went to a probate on Saturday and this is what I wore. Usually when people go to a probate they'll wear going out clothes but this one was held in a church so I dressed more conservatively. I paired this snake skin jacket that belonged to mom with my nude clutch and Michael Kors heels that my roommate gave to me. My white dress shirt is from JCPenney by their brand By & By and my jeans are from the Macy's brand Celebrity Pink. To top the whole look off I wore my Kim K choker from Fashion Nova. 

Spring Fever

On Friday before we opened at work my coworker and I made a social media post for the store. I picked out this outfit from the store, which the inspiration behind it was Spring and Easter.  I chose a pastel pink dress from LuLu's and paired it with a rose colored necklace and a matching leather clutch. I also added whit cat eye sunglasses which gave the look a more 1950's vintage vibe. I then matched the sunglasses with this pair of chunky white heels from Charlotte Russe.

3 Stripes

I wore this outfit last week to class. Unfortunately it was really windy that day so I had to tie my jacket around my waist to keep my dress from flying up. My t-shirt dress is from Missguided and my jacket is Adidas that I bought from job and my sneakers are Adidas Sambas. 

Birthday Slay

On the night of my 20th Birthday I hosted a get together in my apartment. My friends got me those big number balloons that every girl takes pictures with for her birthday which I was excited about since they are the perfect photo prop. I also decorated part of the wall in my apartment as a photo back drop. My outfit for the night consisted of the Kim Choker from Fashion Nova,  the Don't Go There Dress also from Fashion Nova, and the Ariana Heels from Ego. The night was a lot of fun and I can't wait to see what I'm gonna do for my 21st.

Ariana Strappy Heel

I finally got myself a pair of clear heels from Ego! This style of shoe is called the Ariana heel. After trying these on I can tell that these shoes are very comfortable. The clear strap is fitted, but also stretchy to allow comfort. Ego is a great store to shop from as they have all the trending styles and also often have sales and even giveaways on their social media accounts. The only thing about Ego is if you're a customer in the U.S. you should make your order about two weeks before you would need the shoe since this is a UK based company so shipping will take a while. Overall I'm very happy with my shopping experience with Ego and will definitely purchase from them again. I'm gonna wear these shoes during my birthday weekend with my birthday dress so stay tuned for that outfit!

Hump Day

On Wednesday I had work and I decided that I need to start looking nicer for my shifts so I got a little dressed up and did my makeup. For my makeup I used the Juvia's Place "Nubian" palette on my eyes and a Colourpop highlighter in the color "Wisp".

Seeing Stripes

The other day one of the school organizations that I'm in had a bonding event at the basketball game so I dressed up in order to show my school support. I wore a turtle neck striped crop top, a black body con skirt, and black booties from Charlotte Russe. For my makeup I went for a natural look using my Morphe "Fall into Frost" palette on my eyes, Colourpop highlighter in the color "Wisp", and blush from the E.l.f. blush palette in dark.

Work Flow

On Saturday I covered the end of a coworkers shift for about 3 hours. Since it was such a short shift, I decided to get cute for work. I decided to do a full face of makeup. My eyeshadow look was created by the Morphe "Fall Into Frost" palette. My highlighter is the color "Wisp" by Colourpop. For my lips I just put on lip gloss by Rimmel London. Since I was just going to work I tried to keep the look as neutral as possible.

Black Celebrity Night Booties

My shoes that I bought from Windsor finally came in the mail! I like how Windsor shipped the shoe box inside of another box so the shoe box wouldn't get destroyed while being mailed to me. I had originally bought these boots for an all black party that turns out not to be an all black party, but I'm still going to wear all black anyway. This style of boots is particularly popular right now as they are inspired by the Yeezy collection. These boots are a great addition to anyones closet as the can be more casual and worn with jeans or more dressy and worn with a dress or skirt. The price is reasonable as well. I usually wear anywhere between a 9 or 10 and since this is a narrow shoe I got a 10. My first thought when I tried these on was that they are very comfortable, I also like that they are easy to put on and take off since they are slip on. I will be sure to post my outfit for the party this weekend. If you want to purchase these boots you can get them here.

New Year's Eve Photoshoot

Before I had come back home from school, an old high school classmate had reached out to me about doing a photoshoot since she has just started doing photography and she knew about my blog. I was excited to take photos, so I agreed and we met up early Friday morning at the park near my house. The photos may not show it but it was freezing outside and i thought I was gonna get frostbite. On top of that my left eye was running the whole time, but it was honestly worth it. My classmate had decided that we should do a New Year's Eve theme for the photo shoot, which explains the glitter and confetti. I put together the best NYE outfit that I could from what I had in my closet. New Year's Eve is a very festive occasion so a lot of the time people where clothes made of very flashy material, like my gold metallic shirt. I layered my shirt with a brown fur vest, since another common thing people wear on NYE is fur. I wore a black body con skirt from Charlotte Russe and my black thigh high boots from Ego. For accessories I paired gold dangly earring to match my shirt and a black velvet choker to match my skirt and boots. For my makeup I went for a very neutral look consisting of gold and brown tones. I'm used to taking my own pictures with my tripod so this was nice to take a bunch of different type of pictures in different spots around the park. This made me want to do photoshoots more often!
