License To Chill

Hi bloggers x readers! 

Today I put together a complete menswear look on how to achieve a winter white look this season. Winter white isn't your typical summer pure white, which is normally found in your linen or cotton fabrics. However, it's more of an ivory white that works well on heavier fabrics with warm undertones. I took a pair of John Elliott "skittles" white denim and paired it with a Tackma leather varsity jacket. I added a longline burgundy hoodie to add a splash of holiday cheer! I selected a modern tan nubuck leather Chelsea boot by a brand called: "ETQ" to add an effortless casual vibe to complete the look. This Chelsea boot goes perfectly with the raw edge hems on the denim. If you were going for more of an all winter white look, you can easily toss on a warm white button down with a fedora and boom new vibes are being made! Enjoy :)

Reasonable Doubt Celebration

Calling all my Jay-Z fans on lane 20! Over the past few months there has been a huge celebration in order for the 20th anniversary of Jay Z's album: "Reasonable Doubt".

There were 14 boutique stores throughout the United States that participated in this collection and special event (list below). Each store had merchandise for one of the 14 songs on the album.

WARDROBE WEDNESDAY W/ CCMONAI


Hi bloggers x readers!


Sorry for the unclear pictures, I'll start taking better photos so you can really see my outfit details! I am in love with this yellow jacket from Zara, it will literally spice up any outfit. I paired the jacket with American Apparel riding pants, Steve Madden "Emotions" over the knee boots, and a body suit from Pac Sun. I've been doubling up on my chockers to give my look more of a sexier vibe. I will say the Steve Madden boots aren't as comfy as I thought they would be. However, these American Apparel riding pants, are everything and more! Enjoy!

Look for Less: Target vs. Nordstrom

Hi bloggers x readers! Knee high and over the knee boots are so a thing this season. I am actually on the market for a cute pair myself! They are super easy to style and can be dressed up or down. I came across a super good "look for less" at Target and Nordstrom. The DV boots (link at bottom) are located at Target for just $49.99 and target currently has 30% off all shoes! The only difference to this boot is the material used, Suede vs Polyester. Enjoy and happy shopping!xo CCMonai
