Seeing Stars

Richmond is finally starting to bloom! Yay! You all know that I love to wear florals year-round, but over the past few months I’ve been super into stars & moons. Feeling those celestial vibes. When I found this tulle star number (which is actually a dress!) for $30, I just couldn’t wait to wear it. Originally this dress was floor length, but the amazing thing about tulle is that it’s so easy to cut & customize it just for you & your body. I decided I wanted more of a tea length style so I could get the maximum wear out of it. Obsessed with how it turned out.

Another way I’m wearing these celestial stars & moons is in earring form. The pair I’m wearing here are asymmetrical with one moon & one star. You might remember me mentioning them in my touch of sparkle post. They are just stunning & a great deal at under $15.

This Fun Look

When planning this post, I originally thought I wanted to do more of a fancy, glam look, but decided to go a different route. I find this look quite casual, care-free, & really fun to wear. My wrap top (similar here) was past down by a friend & is in a totally unexpected color for me, paired with a fun pale blue heel, blue shades, a patterned headband, & a bold lip. Of course, my favorite light wash denim jacket makes the whole look a bit more spring-y. I couldn’t help but smile in this fun outfit under this lovely blooming tree with the sun shining on my face.

End Of Winter Boost

I wanted to take a minute to share a bit of encouragement with you. Each & every one of us are experiencing different seasons of life. Just like the winter we are in is coming to a close, so will each season of life we face. If you are in a trying season right now, be encouraged & know that this “winter” won’t last forever. A new season is right around the corner, so don’t lose hope. Keep your head up, wear something fun to lift your spirits, & keep on keeping on.

If you are in a joyful season, soak it up! Take a second to capture that moment in time & be grateful for the season you’re in. Whatever season of life you’re facing right now, be bold & courageous. Don’t let what’s happening around you crush your confidence or squash your dreams. You are fierce, beautiful, & your future is limitless. So live that way & why not dress that way too, & encourage those around you to do the same!

Cheers to the end of winter!

Print Mixing For Beginners

Hello Everyone!

Print mixing is an art filled with creativity, imagination, & just plain guts. It’s quite difficult to know at times whether different prints or textures play well together or not. I’m not going to pretend that I am an expert on this topic, but I wanted to share with you some of the things I have learned over the past few years about mixing prints. Maybe you will also like to go on this styling journey with me? We can start as beginners today…& soon become pros…? *fingers crossed*

Print Mixing For Beginners

First of all, in order to style & mix prints, you must own some. Prints can be quite a scary thing to buy because in the back of your mind, there is that fear that, “It won’t match other things”, or “It won’t get enough wear time to be worth the money”. Trust me, I’ve been there. I’ve also been all the way on the other side of the spectrum where all I did was buy prints…the bolder the better! Now that’s a difficult wardrobe to own. I think it’s best to find some middle ground (& impulse control), & find both prints & non-prints that can fit in your wardrobe seamlessly.

As a beginning print mixer, stripes, florals, & polka dots are where we begin. And with spring just around the corner, what perfect prints to add to your wardrobe (if you don’t have them already!). These prints, for the most part, play well together. The trick is pairing the right size & the right color. As far as size goes, a safe bet is pairing a small print with a large print. In the outfit I’ve styled for this post, I chose a very small printed striped top & paired it with a large floral print skirt. I also could have chosen a bigger striped print top with a small floral print skirt, or a floral top with a striped skirt for that matter.

Mix a large print with a small print for easy success. 

The next big task: color. Now, you all know your wardrobe & what colors you wear the most. For me, I tend to wear mostly pinks & blues. Sure I have other colors in my wardrobe (thanks to last year’s fashion goals), but while shopping, it’s good to know what color palette I wear the most. It’s easier to integrate prints & patterns that have similar colors to clothes you already own. If the color thing still seems scary, neutral is always a good route to go.

–   Style tip  –

Neutrals are always winners

In this outfit, you remember, I mixed a white top with tiny light pink stripes with a bold green floral skirt. The bright green seems a bit scary & way too colorful for my comfort zone, but the reason it fits in my wardrobe is because of the shades of pink in the flowers. I knew I had enough white & pink shirts that I could pair with this, & it’s bold print was just the styling challenge I was looking for. A classic denim jacket it the perfect neutral jacket to pair with a bold print. A must have in your spring wardrobe.

Know what colors you wear most. Sticking to patterns in this color palette is a sure fire way to have mixing success.
