Two Questions to Start Off This Post:
Question 1.) How can you wear jeans and a t-shirt to be comfy and still somehow be fashion-forward?
Question 2.) How awesome is Q'doba?
Now, I betcha I can answer both of those questions...
Answer to Question 1.) Colored denim is the way to go!
It started to pick up speed this spring, was really coming into its own during summer, and now for fall and winter, colored denim is a MUST. They're even making it more fancy: coating/lacquering colored denim with different finishes. I'm excited to try a helping of that trend! How about you, dear readers?
It always helps to pair fun things with your denim to keep the fashion vibes going, too: I took an oversized tee and did a bit of fixing to it (you'll see a better photo below), and then threw on nerd glasses and an arm party (one of which I am very proud, and I hope the Man Repeller would be, too [she coined the phrase, "arm party," after all]).
Answer to Question 2.) Very.
They serve fabulous, HUGE burritos, give me extra steak on my fabulous, HUGE burrito, and then let me sit on their patio tables and shove chairs around without so much as a word. Q'doba, I salute you.
You can see the shirt I DIY'd a bit better.Here's the story:
It was super-clearance time at our local Boston Store (well, prettymuch everywhere, actually; everyone is making room for new fall merch), so I went and indulged. I got these pink Calvin Klein jeans that I've been coveting since the beginning of summer, and I haphazardly threw a size Large t-shirt into the bag (it was on clearance for $3.00), as well. I get home, and it turns out I love the tee! It's light as air, and has the cute pocket and V-neck, buuuut it's simply too big. I wanted to keep the oversize vibe going, though, so I just picked up a pair of scissors, cut a line straight up from the bottom of the shirt until it was about three inches long, and then tied the two sides together to create some fit and added interest. Boom. :)
Anyway, my denim and my shoes are both Calvin Klein, and both pieces really speak my soul. Calvin Klein has always been one of my favorites: it was that brand that brought me into the world of fashion and style.
To conclude: here's a quick peek at my latest mani experimentation and then the Rundown:
Thanks, as always, for reading!
