Stripes: Mix and Match

Let’s talk mixing patterns. When done incorrectly, mixed patterns can be clown-like and an eye sore. But when done correctly, it is eye-catching, artistic, and admirable. There are some basic rules I personally have when mixing patterns, and today I’m going to apply them to perhaps one of the most classic patterns: stripes!

Chambray All Day

I was inspired by this magazine spread because it was the SECOND time I had seen a whole spread dedicated to pastel blue and pink. Usually in magazines the couture ads stay the same for months at a time, but the “trend” spreads and the “how to make this look” change. So when I sawContinue reading “Chambray All Day”

Styled 4 Ways – Khaki Work Pants

The other day, I read an article about how this pandemic could change fashion trends: https://www.instyle.com/fashion/coronavirus-will-change-fashion-depression-era-style One trend stood out to me: Our workwear will become more “sharp”.

Magazine Monday – Monochromatic

In flipping through high end fashion ads this spring, I’ve seen lots of Monochromatic looks. For those of you who don’t know, a monochromatic look is when your outfit is all one color. For example, both your pants and blouse are some shade of blue. The most popular monochromatic look is black on black, thoughContinue reading “Magazine Monday – Monochromatic”

Floral Lace – Styled 4 Ways

Nothing says, “Spring” like dainty florals and lace. This top from LOFT is such a good pick me up for cloudy (and snowy!) March days. This top is opposite of a basic, neutral, or staple, but it is still able to be worn so many different ways! I hope these styling tips show you thatContinue reading “Floral Lace – Styled 4 Ways”

Magazine Monday: Denim/Chambray

With spring time comes along denim jackets and chambray all day! So, I thought it was only fitting to use them as my inspo for this week’s Magazine Monday. Before we start, I want to give a little PSA: I don’t love the way these outfits came out. I had so much in my closetContinue reading “Magazine Monday: Denim/Chambray”
