What A ‘Tees’

The-Fashion-Bite-Katie-Roof-What-A-Tees-Draft-#2

If there’s one thing I can’t live without… it’s a good tee. Seriously… I live and die in a good old t-shirt. I’m not just talking any old tee. It’s gotta be softer than soft, fall just right, and look supa phresh!

My favs typically feature one of my favorite bands (preferably from the 70’s), some sort of ironic pun (perhaps about a cat), or a cool, local company.

My current fav… this super soft crop via Typical Culture.

Here are some of my fav pieces straight from my closet… and others that will probably be hanging there by the end of the week  ;)

Get The Look

The-Fashion-Bite-Katie-Roof-Get-The-Look-Flannel-Affair

I may like pretty things, but I’m a TOTAL tomboy at heart ( always have been, always will be… sry )!! That being said, I’m still completely obsessed with fashion ( obvi ) and love finding looks that allow me to mix and match my tomboy favs with some girlie touches.

THE-FASHION-BITE-Katie-Roof-Get-The-Look-add-a-pretty-braid

I love this look because A) it’s cute, B) it’s comfy, and C) it basically works for any and every occasion. Lunch with your bestie babes ✓, a night to forget at your fav dive bar ✓, Blog-Doo book club ✓, Sunday din with the fam ✓… you get the point.

My favorite leather jacket and vintage flannel are absolute staples ( I live in them ). This look can easily go downhill quick. Yep, down that hill and straight on to Frumpville USA, but pairing them with a skinny mini, a cute pair of ankle boots, and a girlie ‘do totally femmes it up. If you’re going to rock the tomboy look think Tomboy Chic… not twinning with your boyfriend. Thx.

Real vs. Steal: Boot Camp

Kikadoo Blog Fash Friday Real vs Steal Sam Edelman Nolan Buckle Ankle Boots Sam & Libby Paxton Strappy Ankle Boots.jpg.jpg

Are you dying over these Sam Edelman booties? So was I… until I saw the price. $312 is just a little on the steep side… and a lot out of my budget for one pair of shoes.

What’s a girl to do when she can’t always get what she wants… or can she? These booties from Targé are freakishly similar. Even freakier is the price. $45 bucks. Are you insane. I’ll take it!

So, what do you babes think? Would you splurge for the REAL or opt for the STEAL?

So  ya, it’s Fall. The most wonderful time of the year. Summer’s tons of fun, don’t get me wrong… but there’s just something about Fall! Sweater weather, the smell of rain, hot tea, candy corn, pumpkin everything, boots, boots, boots… and not to mention, Halloween [and my Bday] are right around the corner.

Here are some Fall favies that made my day. I may have gone a little crazy at Targé… but I’m not sorry about it!

A new planner and colorful pens. I may no longer be a student… but Fall still seems like the perfect time to get my shiz together.

What to Wear Wednesdays: Lite Brite

neon highlighters

It has been crazy cold lately [I’m talking 40 degrees in San Diego kind of cold]… so why not turn up the heat by adding a pop of neon to your drab winter wardrobe?!? Neon was huge in Summer ’12 and it looks like it’s going to be even bigger in twenty-thirteen! I’m stoked because I am a big fan of the neon trend. It’s the perfect way to spice up my almost all black wardrobe. My fave way to incorporate neon at the moment is via my workout gear. Having cute gym clothes gets me extra motivated and wearing bright colors while I get my workout on makes me feel energetic and alive!
