The Homies Hoodie

Happy Friday! As the weekend approaches, I always look forward to relaxing and lounging around in comfortable apparel. Hoodies or big sweatshirts are the ultimate comfort piece, although as summer days keep getting hotter (even though it's technically spring), big/baggy sweatshirts do not become your first choice in the blistering heat - now that wouldn't be too realistic, would it? However, sometimes we get cooler days too, lingering with a rain drops and refreshing winds, which makes the rainy weather a great opportunity for comfortable and thicker clothing (and big knits are great for these days, too)!

If there is a hoodie that you are in love with, you can certainly make it work one way or another. My way involves pairing it with shorts and cute sneakers to go with the casual vibe. Lately my go-to pair of footwear has been my Converse sneakers.

Let's talk about the Homies hoodie. As far as I know, the 'HOMIES' is a play on Hermes - clever, right? It's been spotted on Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Jourdan Dunn and Khloe Kardashian, each lady helping the line gain popularity overnight. If you follow some Tumblr fashion blogs, I'm sure you've seen it many times. They are available on Brian Lichtenberg's website with many phrases to choose from, such as FELINE - MEOW (a play on Celine), BURRRR SO ICEY! (a play on Burberry) and BUCCI (a play on Gucci). 

If I purchase another piece from this line, I'll pick the Feline fitted baseball cap, or the Homies orange beanie - both hats great for bad hair days!

- what she wore -
shorts: american eagle outfitters (similar here // here -- love these!)
bag: toxik (similar here // here)
shoes: converse

Q: What are your thoughts on this line? Are you interested in what fashion brands celebrities are wearing?  Usually, I'm only interested in handbags or high heels, but the spin on popular, high fashion brands is what caught my eye!

Have a lovely weekend!
