Hi, lovelies! 💖 TGIF! I hope you’re having a wonderful day! So, I’ve mentioned to y’all that Alejandro has picked out a few of my favorite outfits during random mall trips. He isn’t really into fashion, and feels most comfortable in a comfy tee and jeans. Once in a blue moon though, he likes to dress up for special events or outings.
Even though Alejandro doesn’t consider himself “fashion forward,” he truly does surprise me every now and again!
I thought it’d be fun to challenge my beau and asked him to style my outfits throughout the week. He accepted my challenge and it was nice gaining another perspective about the clothing I already own. I don’t know about y’all, but I often times tend to pair the same pieces of clothing together and am not the best at utilizing my entire closet. With Alejandro’s help, I fell in love with a lot of my clothes all over again!
Monday — Hanging out and Shopping at the Mall
On Monday, Alejandro did a great job of combining familiar pieces with clothing that brought me out of my comfort zone. I’m glad he started off with my #1 fashion staple, a pair of high waisted jeans. For my top, he chose a lacy cropped top from Charlotte Russe.
I’ve always adored this top because of its icy blue color, but have only worn it a handful of times. Every time I go to grab the top, I almost always end up choosing something else.
At first, I didn’t think the outfit would be very practical to wear throughout the day, but it ended up working well with the leather jacket. Before the day ended, all we wanted to do was go to the mall and snack on some pretzels. Although this outfit was a little more flirty than I’m used to, I surprisingly felt really comfortable as we hung out at the mall. Overall, I’d wear the outfit again, maybe to a party or dinner date with friends.
Tuesday — Grocery and Errands Day
I needed a comfier outfit for Tuesday because we had to catch up on some errands and go grocery shopping. Whenever we run errands, I’ll usually wear leggings or sweats. I’m happy that Alejandro chose jeans again on Tuesday, because I felt a little more dressed up and put together for some reason. I probably won’t be trading in my sweats anytime soon, but wearing jeans was a nice change.
My black converse matched the zip-up hoodie from PINK perfectly, and I thought they were a stylish addition to the outfit. The only piece that I didn’t care for was my pink racerback tank. It was pretty loose-fitting and kept bunching up underneath the hoodie. Nevertheless, I enjoyed these pieces and would wear them all again, just maybe not together.
Let’s be real, even though the jeans were cute, I missed the comfort of my sweats!
Wednesday — Coffee Date and Writing
My absolute favorite outfit of the week! Ah, I’m in love with this look, y’all! I probably haven’t worn either the tank or pencil skirt since college, and never thought to pair them together! When I first saw the outfit, I didn’t know how to feel about it. I wasn’t sure if the tank was too casual for the look, and wondered if the busy print of the shoes would clash with a striped skirt.
Needless to say, I was totally wrong and wonder if I should appoint Alejandro as my personal stylist! He accessorized the outfit with bold hoop earrings, so I put my hair up in a bun and created a glittery eyeshadow look.
That day, we went out for coffee. I worked on writing while Alejandro studied for his class, a typical Wednesday for us. This outfit is a little extra for an everyday look, but I think it’d be gorgeous for a night out!
Thursday — Dinner at Mom’s Old Recipe
We celebrated completing our challenge on Thursday with a delicious meal at Mom’s Old Recipe! Side note, this was probably one of our most memorable dates ever! The restaurant has a romantic setting, especially because of its beautiful brick walls, string lights, and bright paintings. Alejandro and I chatted for almost two hours!
He chose a sweet blue and white sundress and t-strap sandals for my dinner date look. Both of these picks are definitely pieces that I would wear on a day to day basis. I haven’t been wearing dresses as much as I used to, but sundresses are perfect for weekday wear during the summer! Overall, this outfit was the most “my style” compared to Alejandro’s other picks.
The dress was comfortable to wear throughout the day, but it got a little chilly after dinner. I’ll have to bring a sweater just in case next time, the story of summers in Chicago!
I hope that you enjoyed this post, lovelies! 💛 Have a great rest of your day and a beautiful weekend! x
