Casual: Lace Up Heels

 “Never use the word “cheap”. Today everybody can look chic in inexpensive clothes (the rich buy them too). There is good clothing design on every level today. You can be the chicest thing in the world in a T-shirt and jeans — it’s up to you.” -Karl Lagerfeld Now, who said a tank top and a pair of high-waisted denim shorts can’t be chic and trendy? If you were ever on a real budget, you could combine some of the most common items in your closet and create a great outfit. For instance, a simple shirt and pair of pants can be paired together to create a simple, yet trendy look. Throw in a nice pair of heels and you have a very stylish outfit!

When it comes to finding your best look for an affordable price, who else to turn to other than our homegirl Alexis. Last time we caught up with her, she showed us how to add a pop of color to a black blazer and heels.

Today, Alexis is ready to take on the summer heat waves with her favorite pair of high-waisted denim shorts, tank top, and lace up construction heels.

Could you imagine walking around in a long-sleeved t-shirt and pair of dark washed denim jeans in 92 degree weather? Well, that’s why summer fashion was invented. Its the only season out there year where a girl can make a fashion statement out of a bikini top and denim shorts. Okay, that was taking it a bit far but a simple outfit can create some of the best looks.

For many of us, less is sometimes not the best option. If you are accustomed to wearing fancy blazers and and printed pants, it may be difficult for you to find a summer look.  If your back is pinned up against the wall, you have one or two options. First, wear those heavy layers and sweat to death. Second, you could try to take practical garments and adding statement pieces. For instance, you should try  pairing a t-shirt with a plaid shirt tied around your waist, or combine a crop top with a boyfriend jeans and pointed toe pumps.


“I love the shoes! I’m a big fan of heels and this heel is both comfortable and chic. The lace up construction makes the shoe stand out from a lot of other shoes.” -Alexis

Alexis is not a fan of the heat and has no problem with wearing less clothes to stay cool. Her look was thrown together randomely as she searched for something comfortable to wear outside.  Furthermore, our friend Alexis is known for enhancing her outfit with a statement piece. In this particular case, Alexis elevated her tank top and denim shorts by throwing on her favorite pair of lace up heels.

If you have been living under  a rock for the past two months, you should know the importance of owning a pair of lace up heels. Why should I invest in a pair? This sexy footwear is not only the must have shoe of the summer, but they are very versatile. Meaning that they an be worn with a variety of items, ranging from skinny jeans to peplum skirts. Don’t forget to purchase a pair or two while supplies last!

We recommend that you take this opportunity to start appreciating some of the more practical items in your closet. Remember, you can look like a million bucks too with with the right t-shirt, shorts, and statement piece.

After 5: Jersey Blazer

 “Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough” -Oprah Winfrey

In life, most of us desire the fast cars, the big homes, and of course the expensive clothes. Yes, obtaining these items will put you on the “Lifestyles of the Rich and Fabulous” roster. However, you will play a lifelong game of tug-o-war with persnickety and appreciation. Let’s face it, our personal desires can hinder us from appreciating the prized possessions we already own.

From a fashion perspective, we always want more clothes than we need. Granite, it’s understandable that we enjoy adding a few pieces to our wardrobe. Yet, we can still look and feel great with the clothes we wore last month.

This leads us to our post today with Trell Thomas. We caught up with Mr. Thomas between events in New York City and he was glad to do another feature with us. Check out how he combines a recently purchased item with existing wardrobe items.


 “I love the blazer–especially because originally, I wasn’t going to purchase it and then with a little coaxing I decided to go for it because it was different and in a lot of ways represented my personality.” –Trell

Suppose you are attending a special event in the near future that requires flashy attire. Nine times out of ten, there is no need to purchase an entire outfit. You can put together a fresh look with most of the clothes in your closet.

For Trell, he made a white t-shirt and denim shorts look like a million bucks! You want to know how? Well, he simply threw on his new yellow, jersey blazer from ZARA and combined it with some clothes that were folded in his dresser.


“I would call that this look “Ready for Summer” just because everything about it to me says bring on the heat, I’m going to still stay cool (figuratively and literally)” –Trell

Trell’s outfit is a true representation of summer. Brightly colored, his blazer is the perfect addition to his overall look. A jersey blazer is perfect during those late summer afternoons when you are trying to dress up an outfit and stay cool at the same time.


T-shirt: H&M- | Jeans: GAP | Shoes: H&M | Blazer: Zara

Overall, we love Trell’s look. By combining a white t-shirt, denim shorts, and loafers with a jersey blazer, Trell was able to dress up his entire outfit. Great job Mr. Thomas and keep up the great work!
