Sting Like a Bee

Thursday, April 12, 2018

          I'm revving up my style and serving up this sporty chic outfit today.  Yes, it's a different look for me, and I'm loving it!  My style vibe is usually fun and feminine with a touch of rocker-chic, but I'm all for trying out a new style.  Let's be real, I am NOT athletic.  I'm more an artistic, poetry-writing, savvy shopping kinda gal, but I tried my best to channel my sportier side for this look.  For some reason, Muhammad Ali's words kept buzzing in my head throughout this photo shoot.  "Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee."  

         Shein was so kind to send me this spaghetti strap crop top, and I knew I wanted to style it with these badass Fenty x Puma heeled booties.  You may have seen me wear these exact heels in black on my Instagram, but I kept these bumble bee yellow heels safe and sound on my shelf.  The bright color caught my attention in the store, but I hesitated in buying them.  Although I adored them, I knew I wouldn't get a whole lot of wear out of them and honestly I didn't feel cool enough to pull them off.  Luckily, I couldn't bear to add these canary beauties to my "Woulda, Coulda, Definitely, Shoulda Bought It" list, and I'm so happy that I ended up purchasing them.   They match the yellow top perfectly, almost as if they were made for this outfit.

          Staying true to the sporty vibe, I paired the crop top and booties with a pair of velour drawstring sweatpants and an Adidas jacket.  It may be hard to believe, but before this photo shoot I had never worn sweatpants out in public and this jacket is the first and only Adidas item I've ever owned.  What can I say?  I was always a girly girl, and I still am.  However, I felt so put-together, chic, and so comfortable in this outfit.  I just may be an outfit repeater and don this exact look again . . . who knows?      

          For accessories, I opted for a simple pair of black cat-eye sunglasses and a mini black backpack.  Of course, it wouldn't be a true Kristen outfit without at least one jewelry piece, so I added a pair of minimalist silver hoop earrings.  Nothing too flashy, but I needed just enough shine to add a dash of glamour.  

         Thank you so much for taking the time to check out my outfit post!  Even if you're not a fan of this look, I truly hope you enjoyed reading it.  Sporty chic can be defined in so many ways, so let me know in the comments below what your take is on this trending style.  As always, I am sending you lots of love from my heart to yours!
