Co•ord•in•ating

Blog

Hey girl hey! So, If you’re new here there’s two things you should know about me, One: I’m a suit lover…I am absolutely in love with suits! While I’ll always love a man in a suit there’s something about suits that make me feel so bad ass when I wear them in the most feminine way. Two: I’m a hat connoisseur, my absolute favorite accessory is a good hat (particularly fedoras). In this instance the two paired together worked so well to give me this cool/edgy kinda vibe, while not trying too hard. I purchased this beautiful green co-ord set from Shein and was super impressed with the quality. Let’s just take a quick moment to discuss how Shein has definitely stepped their game up when it comes down to the quality of their clothing. I remember my very first purchase from Shein had to be over 5 yrs ago…it was a tan, wool, knee length, trench coat, which I still own til this very day. Although the quality was decent the sizing was way off, LOL. I’m pretty sure I ordered a regular sized small woman’s coat but the coat I received was giving more of an extra, extra, small fit. I could barely fit anything underneath it the sleeves were so tight and when I raised my arms the sleeves hit my elbows 😂😂😂. It was super uncomfortable but it was cute and back then I chose cute over comfort all the time, LOL.

When I saw this set on their website I knew right away that I wanted to wear it with a cool pair of sneakers, I originally had a pair of Jordan 1’s in mind (Another fun fact: I’m by no means a sneaker girl BUT Jordan 1’s have my heart LOL) but I decided to wear these Nike blazer’s instead. Now, I’ve had my eye on these sneakers since around April but never really could 100% commit to spending my coins on them, LOL. I mean to me they were cute but something about them were off, I couldn’t quite put my finger on it but something wasn’t speaking to the fashionista in me. If i’m gonna purchase a pair of sneakers it has to make sense for my wardrobe and at first…these simply did not.

That is until I started to see them EVERYWHERE…LOL. I was minding my business on Instagram one day and every fashion girl had them on while I’m frowning my face up like, “well damn, I know those aren’t the wrestling shoes I had my eye on months ago” LMAO! After going to the real style/fashion inspiration site (Pintrest) and seeing a couple more pictures I was inspired/sold. Quick Rant Moment: It’s 100% okay to be INSPIRED by peoplesome people would rather paint a house with nail polish than to admit that they were inspired by something you did. They’ll Swear they didn’t see what you did/wore but show up in an identical look. Its okay sis, we ALL get inspired and it’s perfectly okay to admit that. WHEW CHILE, LOL.

The only complaint I do have about the shoes is that they do run about a 1/2 size to big on me, I ordered my normal size and I definitely have plenty of space in the front of the shoe. Quick story time: I actually wore these for the first time to the airport recently and felt like Bozo the clown 😂 I swore these looked like boats on my feet, LOL. I flopped all through BWI and still missed my damn flight! Probably because my shoes were too big, SMH. But that’s a story for another day. On the other hand I don’t really have any complaints about the suit aside from the fact that it makes me look even shorter than I already am. For some reason I feel like the length of the shorts chopped of an inch & some change and standing at 5 2′ 1/2 I really can’t afford to lose any of my inches, LOL. Believe it or not I wore a bikini underneath and it actually worked to perfection. I’m not sure why Shein thought a white, clothe, ribbed, bikini would work in water but it did work perfectly fine underneath this suit/co-ord set. I plan on purchasing it in every color because it’s definitely the perfect lounge wear set. Speaking of lounge wear can you believe that we’re still in the middle of a pandemic 🤦🏽‍♀️.

Can you believe I still can not get used to wearing a mask with every damn thing, SMH. And if the pandemic isn’t enough we’re right on the verge of the presidential election and wheeeeeewwwwww chiiillleeeeeeee 😩America is ghettoooooo baby! I’m not gonna get into politics here but I will say God bless us all because we’re gonna need all the help we can get 🥺. On a lighter note Fall is here and I am loving all the Fall feels! On this day it was a beautiful 73 degrees outside and I was loving it! I still haven’t had anything pumpkin spiced but I have ordered a shit ton of Fall scented candles and started to rearrange my wardrobe so there’s that, LOL. I am all for easy style aka suits and co-ord sets this Fall because if I’m being honest I haven’t really had the energy to put into putting an outfit together. We’re coming up on the holiday season and I’ve already started to think about what I’m gonna wear to the living room for Thanksgiving 😂. What can I say my family expects me to bring a “look” to the table every year and what kind of person would I be if I let them down, LOL.

I’m just honestly ready for this year to be over at this point, I’m not gonna set the bar to high but 2021 gotta be better. Like seriously what else could possibly go wrong?? Oh God let me not say that LOL seems like this world loves a challenge 😩. Until next time…

Xx Quita
