Affordable Looks with SHEIN

Fashion can be hard when you’re a broke college student but I’m here to save the day. All of these outfits are super affordable and trendy. I didn’t include shoes in this because I feel like it is important to invest in nice shoes that you can wear with a ton of outfits. Huge thank you to SHEIN for sending me some really cute pieces! SHEIN is known for being an affordable brand and I really love their products!! I only work with brands that I truly support because I want to give honest reviews. If you want to shop my looks or see what else SHEIN has you can use my coupon code Q1lexishepard15 for 15% off! I will have their website and the links to the pieces I have at the end of the blog!

Look #1_MG_0138This first outfit is very edgy and relaxed. The sweatshirt I’m wearing is from SHEIN. I was literally so surprised by how soft and comfortable it is for only $16! I got this in a size XL so I could wear it oversized. You could also wear this sweatshirt with high boots and you’ll look like an icon.  _MG_0180These leather pants are from Forever 21 and they’re pretty stretchy but be careful if you purchase these because the waist is SO TIGHT. I usually have issues with pants gapping at the waist but these pants are the complete opposite. My fanny pack is also from Forever 21, it’s the perfect size for a cross body bag and you can fit so much inside of it that I’m feeling like Mary Poppins. Both the pants and the bag were each $20 (bringing the total cost of the outfit to $56, not bad not bad)_MG_0239.jpg

Look #2IMG_1751This look is a bit more sophisticated but I wanted to keep it casual with the sneakers. The grid suit is from SHEIN. I feel like this would be a good outfit if you want to look professional without looking uptight because it’s a loose fitting suit. It also allows you to add your own unique style. This two piece set is only $22 total!IMG_1749I’m also wearing a simple black turtleneck from H&m. I don’t remember the exact price but I know it was around $10 so the total cost of this outfit is around $32! That’s a really good deal in my opinion.IMG_1748If you want to shop my looks or see what else SHEIN has, don’t forget to use my coupon code Q1lexishepard15.

3 Ways to Style a Denim Jumpsuit

Guess what? You’re allowed to wear white after Labor Day! Owning a denim jumpsuit is a must in my opinion because there are so many ways to style them and they’re a staple in your wardrobe. My denim jumpsuit is from Nasty Gal, which is my new favorite store because they always have sales and cute pieces.

Look #1img_0657This fur coat from Forever 21 dresses up the jumpsuit and gives it a more sophisticated look, rather than looking like a painter. It also keeps you warmer in the winter because Michigan SUCKKSS :))img_0674I’m also wearing my white boots (again) from Express because they just complete any look (even though I usually don’t wear them out because I can’t walk in them)img_0670img_0675img_0659

Look #2img_0663This look really has me feeling like Bob Ross but I’m not even mad about it because he was an icon. It’s a step down from the first look but still a bit dressy with the platform boots (which are so comfortable I wear them everyday). I got these boots from Sundance Shoes. img_0664I’m also wearing this black turtleneck underneath from H&M. I got this top specifically for layering because it’s a super thin and soft material and it’s so versatile.  img_0665img_0666img_0667img_0678This last look is definitely the most casual of them all. I wore the same sweater I have worn almost everyday that I got from H&M. This sweater literally goes with every outfit it’s my favorite thing I own. I feel like the most important thing about shopping is finding items that you know you can put together AT LEAST 3 outfits with pieces you already own.img_0660I’m also wearing my Filas that have little flowers on the side that you’ll never know about because they didn’t get in any of the pictures. I bought these when I was in Paris and I never wear them because they’re too small so if you have any tips for that please let me know!!img_0661Even thought you can barely see them, I’m also wearing these cute hoops from Francesca’s, I re-pierced my right ear myself so that I could wear these so appreciate me please.img_0662img_0673

I hope you found some inspiration from this blog and it encourages you to dress outside of your comfort zone. If you get anything out of this post, remember to try to buy staple pieces that you can make at least 3 outfits with!

☆ NYE Lookbook ☆

I’m literally obsessed with December holidays so I wanted to show you how I would style an outfit for NYE. I love being extra and wearing statement places but you can dial these down if they are out of your comfort zone!

Look #1

Okay this look is BOUJEE let’s not lie. I feel like we all want to look a little expensive on NYE but this jacket from Forever 21 was actually affordable and the quality is amazing (it’s also super warm if you live in Michigan and its -30 degrees out).

I wore these white boots from Express, I’ve worn these in so many blogs I don’t even have to mention them anymore you just get it. I love them okay that is all. The pants I’m wearing are from Zara and they’re super stretchy and comfortable so your feet may be dying but at least your legs are comfortable.This white top is from Forever 21 and and it’s honestly not that important but I need to wear a shirt you know… The little headband is literally from Five and Below I bet you didn’t expect that ugh I love that place. Look #2

The second look is a little bit more casual and comfortable. This is my favorite sweater in the world from H&M (not gonna lie it’s itchy but just layer something underneath and you’re set).

If you don’t live under a rock (I mean this with all the love) you’ve seen these pants before on my blog and if you do live under a rock they’re from Forever 21. Super cute. Super comfy. Kind of cold af. Special thanks to this gem for making this blog post possible ❤

Thanks for tuning in and supporting my absence. See you when I see you.

☆ Red n’ Retro ☆

We all know I’m extra af so when we made plans to go to this retro diner I had to go full out with my outfit. But I wanted to add a hint of modern.

I have been obsessed with denim on denim for forever and I honestly don’t know if I’ll ever get over this trend. My jean skirt is from American Apparel. It’s a decent length so you don’t have to worry about flashing anyone. My jean jacket is from Topshop and it’s such a staple item. Everyone needs the perfect jean jacket. If you think you don’t, you’re lying to yourself. I also have on my white mules from Express that I featured in my shoe haul blog post. Also, I felt super awkward in these pictures because this couple was staring at me yikes.

This white top is from Forever 21. Can you tell I’m obsessed with basic white tops? I have been looking for a top like this for a while but I couldn’t find one that I loved so I’m so happy I found one at forever (literally bought this yesterday).

I also had to break out my cat eye sunglasses from Urban Outfitters of course.

☆ 3 Ways to Style a Simple White T-shirt ☆

My favorite thing lately is spicing up a simple outfit with some fun pants, so I was inspired to create 3 different looks with the same white T-shirt. I feel like staple pieces are so important because one article of clothing can make an entire outfit.

In my first outfit I wanted to keep it casual. I decided to wear these blue striped pants from Brandy Melville. Brandy is my favorite brand for very simple and cheap clothes and I have been shopping there for years.

My platform sandals are Steve Madden. I hate heels so I always go for the platforms because they give you the height without the pain.

The sunglasses I am wearing for this outfit and all the others are from Urban Outfitters. These are the first sunglasses that I have ever liked on me because I usually look awful in sunglasses. The hat I am wearing is from Forever 21.

For my second outfit I chose these super fun silver pants. These are my favorite pants and they were literally so cheap from Forever 21.

I’m also wearing the white boots from my last post that I picked up from Express. I never really shopped at Express until recently but I actually love their stuff, who knew??

Also huge shoutout to whoever’s car this is, it was perfect for my pictures.

The third outfit is a little bit dressy. I got this skirt from Urban Outfitters because I thought it was perfect for the spring.

I kept the white boots on for this outfit because they’re super comfortable and I wanted to show how versatile they are. I also feel like they dress this outfit down a little

☆ My Shoe Haul ☆

☆ I have been looking for the perfect pair of white shoes for so long and I recently found TWO!! White shoes are perfect because they go with almost everything and they’re super in right now. I’m not gonna lie, I’m going to Europe this summer and I thought these would be perfect so I obviously had to buy them, right? ☆

☆ These white booties from Express are super comfortable and versatile. I never really trusted shoes from Express because I always thought they would be uncomfortable but these definitely changed my mind. I swear I have been wearing my adidas almost every day for years so these were much needed. I’m wearing them to a fashion show and I’m honestly more excited about these shoes than my outfit. I feel like you could style these shoes with almost every outfit so I’m going to get a lot of use out of them. ☆

☆ Mules!! Okay remember in like 2007 when we all wore clogs? These remind me of those (I honestly had to look up what these were called). These shoes are also from Express and they are my everything. The clear heel just completes the shoe and makes it so trendy. I can’t wait to wear these with colorful spring skirts and dresses or even dress them down a bit with some jean shorts and a cute button down top. ☆

☆ Let me know if you would like to see a future blog about how I style these shoes! ☆
