White Florale

IMG_1094IMG_1115Lace and florals are one of my favourite combinations, perfect for a casual Summer attire.IMG_1136IMG_1086Just sharing another one of these fun looks I did while I was spending time at my sister home in Atlanta. This look for me is very casual but perfect for the outdoors under a bright sunlight. The dress I’m wear is one of my favourites this Summer because its so lightweight and airy but still has a very girlie look to is. I chose to lightly layer it with a white lace top for that extra Summer touch. Since I was running around in the field, I saw it best to wear my comfy flat oxford shoes that I’ve been sporting around a lot in… it was perfect for that day and also all casual occasions. Let me know what you think of this look and tell me what you would wear for a casual Summer day outdoors.

Illated

IMG_0906I love living in Brooklyn, where I’m able to roam the streets of Williamsburg on the weekends with awesome friends full of laughter and carefree… The fact that my friend and I basically went restaurant hoping for around 30 mins, simply because there were so many options to decide from and we’re both oh so indecisive. IMG_0893During our restaurant contemplation, we stopped by the Brooklyn Flea, which was full of cool things, mostly vintage items perfect for the Brooklyn stereotype.IMG_0918 IMG_0924 IMG_0898Some cute vintage Hawaiian shirt that kind reminded me of being back in Jamaica.

Dress & Shoes- Forever 21

Overall it was a pretty great day spent in Williamsburg. It was super hot which is why this oversized A-line dress fit perfectly for the occasion, as I was able to keep very cool and comfortable. The embroidery on the dress is my favourite part about it because it gives such a Baroque feeling, contrasting against the darkness of the dress. 

I kept it pretty simply, and just an awesome silver necklace made out of tiny little spoons and flat loafers from Forever 21 kept me extra comfortable since we were walking around a whole lot.

Face The Sun

IMG_0867 IMG_0821On a hot Summer day, wearing denim seems to always go unsaid. It keeps me cool and comfy, while beaming a Summer vibe. So when a good friend of mine texts me to hang out, the quickest thing I could pull together was this light denim top with the perfect pant combination.IMG_0850 IMG_0810 IMG_0788 IMG_0785 IMG_0883 IMG_0805 IMG_0793

Top- Forever 21| Plaid Trousers- H&M (similar)| Shoes- Dr Martens |Sunglasses- Dior Technologic (similar here)

It’s very rare I find a denim anything that I’d actually like so when I stumbled upon this loose fitting denim shirt one day while online shopping, I think I surprized myself when I placed it in the cart and went through the whole nine of purchasing it. I’m definitely happy I made that choice because this shirt definitely came in handy. The loose boxy fit gives a sense of airiness, plus it’s a light wash making it very easy to style with other pieces as well as oozing a feeling of Summer.

I paired it with my black and white plaid trousers that I’ve previously style a few times here on the blog but, this time around I styled it was the “pop piece” in this look to compliment the simplicity of the top and of course, I took my new Dr Martens heeled boot out for a spin for the first time since receiving them. I have to say it’s a pretty comfortable boot, the total opposite of what I expected it to be. These boots are really great for summer being part sandal, part boot… and it s sort of bondage quality gives it such a nice edge. To finish of the look, I chose to accesorize with a slightly statement necklace and one of my favourite pair of sunnies for the Summer. Cheers to a wonderful start to the week.

Adorn Fringe

IMG_0757 IMG_0717

Fun Summer days in the city sometime calls for a fringe number to spice up your Summer wardrobe. In my case, I just wanted to feel free and flirty.IMG_0758 IMG_0720

I love sharing my more casual looks, where you can get a look at outfits I choose to wear on a daily basis for a more comfort touch and practical for the weather.IMG_0740 IMG_0677 IMG_0737

Sequined Fringe Top- Forever21 | Pants- Similar | Boots- Jeffrey Campbell

There’s something about this top that I absolutely can’t get over because I’m so in love with the feel and look of it. It has these adorable assembled sequins in an abstract shaped heart, which I find to be very fun for a Summer look. I’m generally not the type to be a fan of sequins but the fact that it’s not completely covering the entire top gives it a pass. The wide shape of the top makes it very drapey and gives an awesome loose fit.

What would the scorching hot Summer be without spaghetti strap tops and dresses because this one surely saved my life from melting in the sun. I paired it with a loose fitting trousers that I practically live in. I probably wear these trousers at least once a week, pairing it with different ideas and just having fun with it. It’s literally one of those pieces that you can wear endlessly and always find unique ways to style it while still remaining comfortable. To finish off the look, I accessorized with my awesome vintage fork neckline (yes it is made of a real fork) and my iridescent oil slick Jeffrey Campbells that I took out for play…I almost forgot I had it until I found it one day while organizing the shoes in my closet.

Echoes In The Halls

IMG_0361

As I enjoy this sizzling summer, I choose to go pretty simple with my daily outfits. With messy untouched hair, light make-up and a two piece sets…it definitely makes for a comfortable day visiting my favourite cafe spot in Brooklyn.IMG_0425 IMG_0410 IMG_0393 IMG_0459 IMG_0364 IMG_0450 IMG_0358Top & Shorts Set- Forever 21 | Vest- Nasty Gal | Boots- H&M

This look is a completely toned down version of my last post, as I chose to go a lot more simpler with the styling of this white lace two piece shorts set. I literally fell so in love with this set when I first saw it because it was so simple and elegant and felt like one of those pieces that could easily transition into almost any occasion. I could definitely see myself pairing each piece as a stand alone because the richness of the lace makes for a item for combining with other pieces in my closet.

I decided to keep it pretty simple with just layering lightly with my black vest and a solid pair of dark brown boots that are super comfortable and easy to wear. I sort of wished I wore a necklace or maybe a choker, but sometimes just being simple works perfectly.

Conservatory Plaid

Visiting one of my favourite places in New York, where I go to sit and think but also enjoy the view of the beautiful garden. Decked out in a school girl plaid trousers and light layers on top for a great transitional Spring attire.IMG_9532 IMG_9545 IMG_9488 IMG_9393 IMG_9412 IMG_9529 IMG_9397

Trousers- Nasty Gal, Crochet Top- Forever 21, Vest- Forever 21, Boots- Zara

Whenever I find myself having free time, I love to head all the way up to 105th street to the conservatory garden in central park. It gets really beautiful this time of the year and can be such a peaceful place to relax and enjoy the scenery if you’re into the whole being with nature thing. As for me, I went there during my Spring break and wanted to stay forever.

I wore a red and blue number that day because completely out of nowhere I felt like having some colour in my life. I believe I’ve worn this plaid trousers before here about a few months back on the blog but styled it completely different (here). This time around, I wanted to play with the colours in the plaid so I layered my crochet top underneath a beautiful baby blue vest as a way of bring out the colours then on top, I wore my navy “Sorry Not Sorry” jacket since it was a bit chilly. I’m here excited to do more shoots like this one and I can’t wait to share on here!

Just Another Moment

Styled in a very comfy attire, just before heading to my classes .

Sweater- Forever 21, Neoprene Skirt- Zara, Dolman Coat- H&M, Platform Boots- UNIF

I can’t believe I went through most of the Winter  completely forgetting about this sweater which I adore so much. Though I’ve had it for quite sometime, it’s still very comfort piece for me and is super easy to layer on top of anything.

For this look, I paired it with my mini neoprene skirt and an oversized Dolan coat as an additional layer. This is a very simple look for me, mainly because I’m not wearing too many layers and its a look I’d wear this on a typical day to classes. It’s nice when you can put together a look that is simple and to the point, especially on days when you’re in a rush to get to your destination.

Yes, The Style Alien has officially moved to a new hosting site and I couldn’t be happier. I delayed posting looks for awhile so that I could get everything perfected and to my liking so I’m exciting to share with you on the new layout of the site!

Aside from that, things have been really hectic between working on independent collections and getting ready to head back to school however, posting on here might be the only thing keeping me really sane sometimes. For this post, I decided to share this look I wore around a week ago right before I went to lunch in Williamsburg with a friend.

It was super cold obviously, so in typical Martina fashion…I decided to pile on a bunch of thick layers to help in keeping me warm in this dreadful weather. I wore a cute long black sweater that have this lace detail attached to it which is pretty cool, then I layered with my royal blue biker jacket as a pop colour  against the black with another layer of my oversized faux leather vest.

Let me know what you think of my new layout!
