 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.

I have been on the hunt for the perfect pair of flare jeans for my petite frame. The challenge has been that they are always so long even with heels. Getting them hemmed is not an option with flare jeans if you want to wear them with heels. It changes the shape. Getting them in petite sizing is not an option either if you want to wear them with heels. They become looking too short. So after trying on numerous pairs, I decided to give American Eagle a chance. I was reluctant at first. I had not bought jeans from there since I was in high school. Luckily, I found the most perfectly distressed, flare jeans. I love these flares! They hug curves in all of the right places and make me feel like I have legs for days.

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…

Spring Has Sprung…

Happy First Day of Spring! Hello sunshine and bright colors! I could not resist buying these metallic flats from J.Crew when I saw that they were on sale. Plus, I had some reward money from J.Crew, so double bonus. These flats are actually my favorite! I have them in three other colors, and I still want more. With warmer weather here to stay in Florida, I thought this shirt was perfect with the palm trees. I also liked the cute “Tres Bien” saying. David and I just booked our second wedding anniversary trip. Paris will be one of our stops, so this shirt made me ready for Paris.

Though it is Spring, and it is all about bright fun colors, I have actually fallen in love with dark lipsticks and lip glosses. I know this is not the typical Spring palette of the usual pinks and nudes for lips, but I have been incorporating some darker shades into my daily rotation of pinks. I think it has a lot to do with my new darker hair color. It makes me feel vampy. Black is actually my natural hair color, but I wanted a change from the blonde. My hair is dyed black with dark blue ombred throughout. I wanted to go completely blue and be a mermaid, but I did not think my job would be thrilled with blue hair, so this was a fun compromise. These pictures were shot in mostly shade, so it is hard to see the blue in all its glory, but if you look really hard you can see that my hair isn’t really just black.

 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 love a bold print, especially when it is a floral motif. I was immediately drawn to this pairing at H & M, but was not sure if I could pull off such a bold print. I picked out my sizes and immediately headed to the dressing room. As I studied myself in the mirror, I did what I always do when I am unsure of an outfit. I snapped a few quick pics and texted them to my two best friends. One loved it, the other did not. I sided with the friend who liked it. Not only is this one outfit, but so many more outfits can be made with the interchangeable pieces. Hello multiple outfits. This is awesome for me because one of my shopping goals for 2015 was to shop smarter. By smarter, I mean spending less on the quantity of clothes that I buy and focus on buying interchangeable items that can be easily incorporated into my existing wardrobe. Trust me, it is a lot harder than it sounds.

 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?

A jumpsuit can be a little bit tricky to pull off. However, if worn right, it is totally chic and feminine. A super baggy jumpsuit should be avoided at all times though. Besides, no one wants to end up looking like they are wearing a potato sack. They come in an array of styles and can look good on anyone no matter your size or shape. I love them because personally they make me look taller. I know that is why heels were invented, but a great jumpsuit with a cinched in waist can really elongate the body and show off curves. The other reason why I love them is because it makes an easy outfit. It is only one piece. All you need to do is add a great pair of shoes and some accessories. Speaking of accessories, how gorgeous is this leopard clutch by Sara Sozo? A woman can never have enough leopard clutches. Not only is this clutch more beautiful in person, but it supports a great cause. A portion of the proceeds from any purchases of handbags by Sara will go to missions, both in Atlanta and overseas in India. I also have this one and have my eye on this one. Check them all out on Etsy here.

Peplum is a style that I was very hesitant about wearing, I always thought it was for itty, bitty people. Boy was I wrong! It is actually very universally flattering. It is fun and flirty. A peplum top is best paired with a fitted bottom like a pencil skirt or skinny jeans. This helps to balance out the proportion of the bottom. I prefer wearing with skinny jeans because virtually everything pairs well with skinny jeans.Below are some peplum tops that might be making their way into my closet soon.

Sequins, Sequins, and more sequins! This shirt alone jazzes up any outfit. In the words of Rihanna, “shine bright like a diamond.”  This would certainly be an understatement when describing all of these sequins. It actually caused quite the distraction for David while driving. The sequins shined like a disco ball all inside the car. All of the sparkly colors drew me to this shirt. I loved how the sequins were not monochromatic, but multi-colored. In keeping with a sparkly theme, I paired them with jeweled peep-toe pumps. Besides, nothing goes better with sequins like more sparkles, right? The black skirt helps to break up the sparkles from the sequins and shoes. I am thinking that this shirt might make its way out of my closet for NYE. I think it would look really cute with my new favorite J.Crew Jeans and black Christian Louboutin pumps.
