Geek Chic

Hello friends, I know its been a while, but I am finally back. And I have the time to invest in my blog. Yayyy! Since I've been gone, I completed my Bachelor's degree in Technical Management. You are probably wondering what does that have to do with fashion.  The answer is absolutely nothing.  I was a nerd once upon a time in my life. Which brings me to my next look; geek chic. 

Last year the collegiate sweaters and Letterman jackets were all the rage, but the trend actually carried over to this fall/winter as well.  I'm just getting around to wearing mine.

Anyways, I hope you enjoy the look.  Also, I would like to address that you girl has gained some pounds, but I will save that discussion for a later date.  Just know that I am working on it.


On to the look. Enjoy!!!
 
 
 
 
 






The cardigan and the button-up is a one piece, which made it very comfortable to wear.  I thought that was cool. 


My textbooks from my final school  projects had to make a special cameo.




I fell in love with this three piece ring set (eyeglasses, nose, and mustache) from Forever 21.  I was so quirky. I have a tendency to wear more mature clothing, but there is aways going to be an accessory that is going to be youthful.

 
 


Man, I've had these boots over 4 years and they look great don't they?  I treat them like the gold (wheat) that they are. Literally.  I do not wear in snow and rain. I know they are waterproof, but water stains nubuck. I try to  prevent stains if possible.  Also, I store them high on the shelf.







"B" is for Booth, my last name. I kinda have a pet peeve for wearing letters or monogrammed anything with a letter that does not apply to me. For me, please make sure you choose a monogram that begins you name.  Thanks. 


 
 
 
 
 
 
What I Wore:
 
 
Navy Collegiate Cardigan with Button up Shirt attached- F21
 
Dark Denim Jeans- F21 (only $10.80 and probably $7.80 in the lower 48s)
 
Timberland Knee-boots in Wheat- I got these from FootAction, but you can get them anywhere. I just ordered a another pair of boots from Amazon.com.
 
"Malcolm X" inspired Glasses (prescription)- Wal-Mart, but Ray Ban makes a similar style. Just go to your local optical center. Note: Both these and Ray Ban's style are SUNGLASSES. Me and many others opt for a clear lens for glasses obviously.
 
Novelty Eyeglass Necklace and Ring Set- F21

Camo

I know y'all are familiar with how popular camouflage is. It has really become the "new" neutral. I feel that I have seen every different color combo with camo. I wanted something that was not as standard.

I have my moments when I wake up and say "I want to be different today." Well, today was not any different. My goal of this outfit was to mix edgy, feminine, and trendy all in one.

SIDE NOTE: This outfit was so cheap. It is not even funny.
 
 I hope you like it!

Thanks Again for Visiting!

Playing with Textures

 I know it is getting cold, but I have a thing for open toed shoes and short skirts.  The next thing I know is that I will have a cold.  Meanwhile, until it snows or the temperatures really drop, I will continue wearing the mini skirt. Eventually, I will add stockings and boots. 
 
Anyways, I love mixing textures and playful patterns.  It just happens that it is on trend. 
 
Try It
 Start small- Try leather and suede in a shoe or another accessory.  Then, move up to bigger statement pieces: example Leather Pants.
 
I probably am the wrong person to listen to when it comes to wearing patterns. I will tell you to wear the most obnoxious patterns. What I will tell you is when wearing bold patterns keep all coordinating pieces (including accessories clean).  Remember LESS is MORE.
 
This look I did was and that's enough talking. Now onto the look.
Enjoy!

Beetlejuice

This outfit was one of my most quirky looks yet.  I love it though.  Having kids definitely ages a person, so I like to have youthful feeling clothes. This look earned me the most likes to date on Instagram.

Vintage: How to Wear a Silk Blouse

Everytime I shop at a thrift store, a silk shirt is the first thing I grab. Let's just say I have built up quite a collection.  My mom and my best friend get on me all the time for picking out "ugly" clothes. I tell them, "It's vintage. It has potential." This is one of those items they would call ugly.
 
Anyways, with colorful silk shirts such as this one, keep the styling simple. Let the shirt do the talking, lol. If you want to get sassy, tie a knot in the front. Keep the jewelry minimal and clean. Wear jeans (I prefer dark denim). Then, just add a fly shoe. There you have it, vintage styled modernly.
 
That's enough talking, enjoy the look!

A Black "Chola"

These picture came out so dope to me. There were so many great shots, it was hard to choose what pics to choose for the blog. Anyways, I was inspired by a Mexican chola and  I thought that I would give this look a try.  It's simple, yet stylish. I call it effortless chic, and it beats wearing sweatpants. 
 
This look is also a Twice-S-Nice first.  I never modeled a look that didn't have at least one item that was thrifted in it.  Everything was cheap, if that helps!
 
 
Enjoy!
