Happy Founders Day to all the ladies of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated! Alpha Kappa Alpha has been servicing local communities all around for 111 years- I am so proud to be a member of this organization that pride themselves on servicing the community and uplifting women! Such a monumental force in Black History!
To celebrate Founders Day it is only right that I show off my sense of street style with a little pink and green. If you didn’t know Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority colors are apple green, and salmon pink.
First, I came across this very cute blush pink hooded wrap coat from Forever 21. I had to add this to my wardrobe because of color, and the hood. I love a coat with a hood! It is so necessary to have in this bitter cold winter in Detroit. Did I also mention this coat is very thick? It is keeping a sister warm! This jacket adds a nice touch to my street style.
Forever 21 comes through with some quality pieces from time to time. This coat runs for $58. In opinion, I think that is decent price for winter coat. The only thing that I did not like is hat it did not come with a buttons to keep the coat close. The only thing I had to rely on was the belt that wraps around the jacket. It does slide open so I think this jacket would have been better with a button on the inside. Due to the light color you have to take this coat to get it dry clean. I prefer winter coat that can be washed in in the washer machine. Less money to spend.
Since the coat is blush, I think it is necessary to to pair it with a deeper and rich green. So, I shopped around and found this darling emerald color bell sleeve lace top for Ashley Stewart. The great thing about this top is that I caught it on sale. Jackpot! I have to say I’ve been sleeping on Ashley Stewart. This store has some stylish and affordable pieces! SAVING NOTE: If you are trying to save a penny or two this a perfect time to start loading up on a few pieces for the next winter. A lot of stores around this time are having sales to get rid of winter wear to make room for spring wear.
When it comes to street style fashion the common factor is denim jeans. Denim is one of my favorite pieces to have in my closet. You can dress it up or down. In this case I decide to mix classy and edgy. To add an edgier effect t, I decided go with a distressed jeans. The frayed ends on the hem line are my favorite. When it comes to street style you have to think about comfort and nice touch or too. To add a bit of a contrast to the look I paired it with my new favorite leopard booties from Target.
