{Life} June Round Up (Part 1)

Coco The Fashion Pup

Life all fashion and no play is ok…but not at glorious as making memories with friends who you consider FAMILY!  June is my birthday month and to my surprise my amazing friends threw me a birthday celebration!

I thought I was going to my best friend Jameelah’s house to do some business work….on a Sunday (not unusual for us). SIKE! I opened the door to all of my friends there!  It was filled with food, drinks, laughter and one of my favorite pups wearing a denim jacket.  I’m blessed in the friend department for sure.

{Style} T-shirt + Leather Skirt. YES.

Angela-Denae-2015-06June_MS_1097

I believe my entire outfit cost me less than 50 bucks. Hey Hey what do you say!?!  Awesome right?

In other news, you have to be strategic about wearing leather in the summer time.  It can be done, but it helps when it’s not a muggy day. If you think you’re going to sweat more than normal, don’t do it to yourself. Hahaha.  To make the vintage pieces more like my style, I love to add hats and jewelry to my otherwise BASIC outfit. (well…a yellow leather skirt is not super basic, but you get the idea).

{Style} Summer Per-suede-ion

Angela-Denae_Pinksheepheiress

Oh you know, just taking a casual stroll with my matching suede short set on :)  This is the way to wear suede or leather during the summer…in smaller doses.   I love everything about this Pink Sheep Heiress short set, she has other amazing pieces online!  I dressed this up a bit with my favorite Kings of Oblivion headpiece that I wear as a choker.  Missy (owner of KOB) has some amazing one of kind pieces in her Etsy store.  Be sure to check her out! <3

To maximize a two-piece outfit, separate them!  Wear the top with your favorite shorts, skinny or boyfriend jeans.  The shorts would be perfect with a tank/t-shirt or a lightweight chambray top.

{Style} Denim On Denim On Denim

Angela-Denae-2015-05May_MS_9482

It’s finally been hot for longer than 3 days straight! Yes, it’s official: Shorts Season in New York!  And what’s not to love about a good pair of cutoff shorts.  I’m a sucker for denim.  It always gives laid back feel to any piece you wear it with.  I went totally dressed down with this relaxed denim on denim look.  You can add texture to your one color/material outfits by wearing accessories with similar shades.  Easy peasy way to had interest to your look.

{Style} Now White It Out

Angela-Denae-2015-05May_MS_9352

Memorial Day weekend and warm sunny days announce in the days of summer!  Bring on all the white outfits you can handle.  I decided to pair my look with a crop button down shirt to add a bit of formality to the usual summer cut off jean.  You can do this with any button up shirt.  Feel free to tie it to make it shorter or just leave it be.

{Style} The Shirt Dress

Angela-Denae-2015-05May_MS_9274

I spent a beautiful saturday morning in my neighborhood Bed-stuy, Brooklyn.  As you know, I  love wearing pieces that are meant for one thing in another way.  I paired this striped shirt dress with my vegan shorts and booties for an edgier feel that’s more my style.  Of course I also plan on wearing it with cut offs and a tank during the warmer days ahead.

I know you are wondering where I am.  I’m in front of the restaurant Saraghina whose outside artwork is by the one and only Shantell Martin.  If you don’t know who she is…you should.  Look her up (or click her name in this post)!
