WIWTW: Boyfriend Jeans + Bomber Jacket

Hey guys! Welcome to another What I Wore This Week post, where I feature an outfit I wore during the week, the occasion and how I styled it.

I am finally back after a hectic month-long break from blogging. Over the holidays, I made a list of key items I don’t own in my wardrobe. One of those items were boyfriend jeans. I spent an entire 4 hours searching for the perfect pair. I searched according to price, size, shape, color, ripped, non-ripped until I FINALLY found this perfect pair!

Event/Occasion: Hip-Hop Concert
Lipstick: “Diva” by MAC

I love jeans but I was never able to find the right pair for my legs. I have really long and slim legs which in most cases is a great thing. But when it come to finding pants in France (rhyme!) I can’t find anything that fits me. When boyfriend jeans started trending, I thought I would never be able to pull them off. Until I found this pair at Pimkie and Sidney showed me how to cuff them at the bottom so that they hug my ankles.

I wanted to create a casual look for the hip-hop concert I was going to so I decided to wear this ribbed white turtleneck bodysuit from Asos. Bodysuits are bomb for concerts because they don’t move when you dance: no butt-cracks, no love-handles, just love.

It is actually freezing outside (and it was even colder when I did the above photoshoot – if you look closely, you can see the goosebumps on my arms), but inside the venue, I knew it’d be warm enough to wear Sidney’s bomber jacket from Galerie Lafayette. (When in doubt, wear your boyfriend’s clothes, they’ll always look cute on you.) Finally, I wore my comfy black Furylite kicks from Reebok to polish off the outfit.

And while I was away from blogging, I got a beautiful Fossil watch…

This time last year…

This time last year… I had just left my family in Dubai. A few days before, I had my heart broken. And here I was feeling sorry for myself staring at an open suitcase in front of me. I had filled it with things that were once precious to me. I wanted to forget everything inside of it and it worked – I can barely remember what they were.

Fast forward 365 days later. I just got back from dropping my sister off at the airport. We had an amazing vacation in Lyon and got to spend 18 days with each other. We spent Christmas with my boyfriend and his family. I spent New Years with my best friends, a night I’ll remember for a long time.

2015 was an incredible journey for me. I went to Las Vegas with my dad. I got my first tattoo. I started dating the most intriguing man I’ve ever met. I got to work for a fashion magazine. Sidney and I started a fashion blog, Garde Robe together. I turned Breakfast with the Beatles into a fashion blog as well. We went to the French Riviera (including Monaco and Ventimiglia) for a week. I made some great friends, forever-friends.

It all went by so fast, and though there were a lot of ups-and-downs, here I am, happy. I’m so happy with the life that I’m living, because this is exactly where I wanted to be a year ago.

My 2016 resolution is this: Adventure.

Important Blog Changes for NY 2016!

Hey guys! It’s Christmas Eve, and I’m sitting here wondering how this year went by so fast. So many personal, physical and mental changes have happened in my life, including this blog, my favorite past-time ever: Breakfast with the Beatles.

weheartit

After testing out a few changes, it’s time to make some permanent and others un-permanent (lol I know I made that up). Most of these changes will affect you so please take note! :)

1) Breakfast with the Beatles is mainly a fashion blog.

This means that I will mostly post about fashion, outfits, DIY tutorials, and my What I Wore This Week specials.

BUT…

2) I will still post about my life, random anecdotes, recipes, etc.

Because I love to talk and I feel like I haven’t been able to connect with you all for about a year now, ever since BWTB turned into a fashion blog. I will do my best to post something unrelated to fashion once in a while!

3) Garde Robe will have its own website by January 31st

Sidney and I are so excited for you to see our new Garde Robe website which is currently under construction. We’ve decided to separate Garde Robe from Breakfast with the Beatles because they are two different blogs. I will let you know when the website is complete and I will post a link to the Garde Robe website.

But…

I will still post my favorite Garde Robe outfits on BWTB!

4) Garde Robe will have videos!

Sidney and I are working on this one, but we are planning on filming the people we will photograph. This way, you can watch the video interview and have a better view of what the person is wearing.

5) Get ready for awesome collaborations!

I can’t tell you too much about this but I am so so so excited for 2016 because Garde Robe will be collaborating with quite a number of brands and I’m sure you’re gonna love it!

So in the meantime…

I wish each an every one of you a very Merry Christmas filled with Joy, Love, Family and Christ. And a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Thank you so much for making 2015 an incredible journey for Breakfast with the Beatles, for inspiring us to create Garde Robe and for being so supportive!

This week, Sidney and I had the awesome opportunity to collaborate with American Apparel for their new collection! My favorite thing about this season’s AA collection is the color palette they used and their cute names like Clay pot, Truffle or Cocoa Bean.
