“What you wear is how you present yourself to the world, especially today, when human contacts are so quick. Fashion is instant language.” -Miuccia Prada

After surviving a weekend of 4th July shenanigans, we had an opportunity to catch up with our blogger friend, Mora Adeyi or Always_mlove. When she’s not giving romantic advice on her personal blog, Anopensecret.com, she spends most her free time looking for different statement pieces for her wardrobe.

Today, Mora decided to add some personality to dress up her tank, shorts, and sandals with a sheer, floral print kimono from Forever21. With a sleeveless silhouette,  an open front, and floral print, this sheer kimono will catch the attention from the  every day street dweller. It’s definitely one of those, “Where did she get that from,” type of items.

Now, here’s what sets the kimono apart from other summer accessories, it’s ability to be worn with almost anything. From crops tops, to skinny jeans, the printed kimono adds that summer flare to your entire look.

Mora is actually in love with her kimono. She states, “I love my kimono, it’s comfortable, and can be paired with a variety of options like a miniskirt, tights, or shorts.” Sounds like Mora loves showing off a little leg.

To complete this look, Mora threw on her wide brim fedora from Forever21. According to Mora, “I love my hat because I normally don’t wear them. I think this hat is seasonally versatilte, appropriate for summer and fall. Plus, it makes a short haircut edgier.”

Ladies, if you don’t own a kimono, you are truly missing out. Go pick up yours today from Forever21. You’re most likely going to spend $20. That’s such a deal right?

Now that you have officially elevated your summer wardrobe, it’s time for you to go show off your look!

So, thanks for reading! Have fun!

Sandals: Target

Are those sandals Bryce?

Yes, I’m wearing sandals! Now, I’m not a flip flops type of guy, but I do love a good pair of “Jerusalem Cruisers.”

Why? Well for one, they’re comfortable. I can wear these sandals everywhere, except in the rain of course. Two, they look good with almost every outfit, unless you are attending a weekend. If you don’t believe me, just check out today’s outfit. I paired my sandals with a basic tee to shorts. Three, these sandals are very affordable, especially if you know where to shop. Matter of fact, I picked up these sandals from Target for only $10. You have to love a good clearance rack. Maybe tomorrow, I can wear these bad boys with my favorite distressed jeans.

What do you think? Let us know in the comments section below.

How Did I Wear…

How did I wear…4th of July apparel?

Before you wear anything 4th of July related, you have to buy something first. Many retail stores have been selling 4th of July apparel since the end of May. So, I don’t want to hear the same excuse, “Oh I have nothing to wear for the 4th. That’s why I’m not wearing red, blue, or white.” If this sounds familiar, it’s probably you! Do better, and let’s get in to the holiday spirit.

Tip: Try stores like H&M, Old Navy, Urban Outfitters, American Eagle, and Target if you are looking for stylish, 4th of July apparel.

Since I’m more of a tank and t-shirt kind of guy, I decided to wear this old American flag tank from Urban Outfitters. Now, this shirt has been worn on numerous occasions, but I have never worn it with a pair of white skinny jeans.

Tip: Make sure if you wear white, stay away from dirty chairs and food stains. Since you are out and about, you won’t have time to change with a few stains on your leg. Be careful!

To complete this look, I tied an old denim shirt around my waist and slipped in a pair of leather oxofrd shoes. So, why did I wrap a old denim shirt around my waist? I’m always cold, even during the summer. As a precaution, I can throw on my denim shirt if it gets a little chilly at night.

Now, I have to admit, this outfit is a little risky for cookout fun. White is such a vulnerable color. If you are as careful as I am, you will walk out of danger spot free.

Happy 4th of July folks! See you on Monday. Thanks for reading!
