 Blue and black were not two colors that I thought paired well together. I thought mixing them was a faux paux, kind of like mixing black and brown. However, they actually look great together, especially when it comes in the form of one of my favorite prints. Camo of course! I had been on a hunt for the perfect black saddle bag for the last few months. The ones I found were either too small or too big. This one from J. Crew is the perfect size. The combination of it being both blue and black was unique to me. Also,the calf hair also sealed the deal. I love calf hair. It makes an interesting accessory. It comfortably fits my make up bag, my wallet, keys and iPhone 6. I highly recommend it.

Simple and easy is how I like my outfits. Comfort is key. No matter how simple the look, accessories will always dress up an outfit. My standout accessory is always shoes. Shoes will forever be my weakness. They speak to me. Whether it’s a heel or flat if I see a shoe that I like, I have to have them, especially if they are camo print.

Camo is my favorite print. I find any excuse to wear it. I especially love its versatility. I have always considered my style to be tomboy glam. My new way to pair camo is with the color cognac. I have been looking for a pair of casual, cognac colored shoes. I also wanted to give this mule trend a try, but did not want to spend alot of money. These Target mules solved that very problem. They are trendy and comfy. I kind of have my eyes on the black ones as well. Shoe addict problems…

 Pattern mixing was something I was always a little skeptical to try. It made me feel uncomfortable. I felt this way because I just did not have the confidence to move out of my comfort zone.  I always thought dressing well meant matching everything from head to toe. However, I was wrong. Camo and plaid at first thought is an unlikely pairing. Although, the more I wear camo, the more I see it as a neutral. It goes with everything in my closet. Some of my best pattern mixing combinations happen when I am in a rush to get dressed and leave the house. My four tips for pattern mixing are:

1. Comfort – Wear what you feel comfortable in and what makes you feel stunning, no matter how simple the outfit.

2. Creativity – Thinking outside of the box goes a long way. Besides, it is fashion and it is meant to be fun.

3. Color – When print mixing, stick to like colors to create an overall tone.

4. Confidence – This is the most important one. If you are unsure of yourself or your style that will show. Own your look.

 I am all about cozy knits, especially super soft sweatshirts. I love them even more when they come in camo print. If you follow my feed on Instagram you will see that I am very fond of camo. I own way more of it than I should. As soon as I saw this sweatshirt, I knew I had to have it. It is so soft and cozy. Initially, I wore it way more than I should have without washing it, but it was because I did not want to lose its coziness. The sweatshirt has been washed, and it did not lose any of its softness. It is just as soft as when I first wore it. What is your favorite cozy knit?

The Best Black Booties…

These booties are AMAZING! My quest for the perfect pair of black booties is over! It seemed as if I liked every pair that was unavailable in my size. David must have been reading my mind about my endless search for black booties. He actually bought me a pair for Christmas, but they were not my style. I found this pair instead and ordered the very last pair in my size and returned the others. These booties are perfect in every way imaginable. They have buttery soft leather, a chunky heel, true to size, and are extremely comfy. Though these booties are sold out online on Tory Burch,  Zappos has them available in black suede. I highly recommend them.

Lately, I have been on a sneaker kick, but I guess that is obvious from my recent posts on Instagram of the coveted Red and Cement Retro 13 Nike Air Jordans. Those sneakers are everything.I still cannot live without my heels though!  I acquired these gorgeous Tiffany Blue Nike Air Jordans while vacationing in New York with David. There was no way we were leaving without visiting Niketown. He was a kid in a candy store to say the least. Being the shoe addict, I mean shoe lover that I am, I had to take a look at the boys shoes for myself. Instantly, I feel in love with these Tiffany Blue Nike Air Jordans. I scooped the last pair in my size, too, which made buying them even sweeter. Out of the four pairs of Air Jordans that I currently own, these are my favorite. They are so sporty and girly at the same time. I wear them alot on the weekends while running errands. They pair perfectly with these Camo Lululemon Joggers that I wish came in more colors. They are so comfy they feel like pajamas!

Camo along with leopard is one of my favorite prints. You might even say that I am crazy for camo, but I especially love these Loft pants because they come in petite sizing.  Camo is surprisingly very versatile. It can be styled dressed up (Look 1) or dressed down (Look 2). For a dressed up look, I paired my camo pants with eye-catching jewels, these amazing Sam Edelman shoes that always start a conversation no matter where I wear them, and this leopard clutch that I am obsessed with. It goes with everything. It made for a great date night outfit with David. For a more laid back look, perfect for a long day of running errands, I paired my camo pants with flats and a super comfy Gap V-Neck Shirt for a little pattern mixing. More camo posts coming soon.
