Outfit Post: Rebel Without A Cause

It’s been snowing on and off all week in Chicago so I really wasn’t in the mood to get dressed up! It was actually a sweatshirt/combat boots kind of weekend for me. Last month I ordered a few sweatshirts from the Forever 21 Mickey Mouse Collection, I’m just now getting around to wearing them. You know Chicago’s weather can be so up and down.


I’m usually a girly girl but sometimes it’s just fun to go casual. I had a few events to hit up so I didn’t want to look like I just rolled out of the bed but I didn’t want to put on a prom gown either. I put a few things that I had sitting in the closet together to make the perfect casual look. I’ve been dying to wear dark lipstick and this past weekend was the best time to pull it out. I felt like my dark lipstick and beanie veil made my look a little mysterious. It truly was the best outfit to wear while battling the snow. I finally got a chance to wear my Poetic Justice Jeans and I love them! The stretch was amazing. When the snow stops falling, I’m going to rock them with pumps so you can see the zippered details at the bottom.


My veil beanie is by BCBG (see my post and link to buy here). Pants: Poetic Justice c/o, Bag Just Fab (c/o), Forever 21 Mickey Mouse Sweatshirt here. My lipstick is Sex by Ka’oir (see post here)

Do you ever feel like switching up your look? What steps do you take when changing your look?
