Hello Gorgeous! I love this shirt. How could I not be attracted to a shirt that practically “spoke” to me? What’s better? It was on clearance. So funky, sparkly and pink! Right up my alley ya’ll. What else do I say? Well, it was a bit windy this particular day!
Just a quick hello! This is another casual look I wore during my Mom’s recent visit to Tulsa. Perfect for walking through downtown Tulsa on a sunny Sunday afternoon and having brunch. Despite my obvious love for bright colors, lately I’ve been sticking to quite the neutral color palette when it comes to dressing. Can’t go wrong with the classics, right?
Glamo. Yep, I think that’s the word I’ll make up to describe this look. That and risky business. Mixing tweed with camo?! What? What was I thinking?! Well, I was thinking that I want to really test this print mixing thing. It could have turned out disastrous, but I think it didn’t turn out too bad.
Black and white. Black or white. Black and white. Keep saying it over and over again and what does it make you think of? A certain song maybe? Well, famous songs aside, lately it’s seemed to be a “black and white jungle” on the fashion scene lately. Have you noticed? Of course you have. But hey, are you surprised? What’s more classic, easy to wear and style than black and white?

Camo people. I’m wearing camo. When this trend first emerged last fall, I didn’t quite know what to think. Honestly, for me, wearing camo was only something hunters or army personnel wore. Wearing camo in everyday life?! But, I continued to see it more and more, and once I saw the many different ways it could be styled, it grew on me. So, like certain other trends, when I finally decided to “jump on board” (hey, better late than never, right?) and saw this cute embellished and sparkly camo top at Forever21, I went for it!
I decided if I’m going to wear camo, I’m going to wear it right and wear it my way – styled with a great pair of boyfriend jeans cute peep toe pumps, a funky bag and bracelets, a little rose gold and a bright red lip. So, here ya go folks…definitely not your average camo. Dare I say…..”Glam-0“??? Ok, maybe not, but hey, it’s definitely “glammed up” camo! 😉
I must know – what do you think of this trend? Would you rock it?

Life has not been easy for me lately. However, despite my tough times, I decided maybe wearing a bright, sunny and overall happy color was what I needed. Amazing how, even if only for a short time, just wearing a great bright color can improve your mood. This sunny yellow top from Ann Taylor is one of my favorite pieces in my closet. It’ s fun to wear and so easy to style; a piece that can effortlessly be dressed up or dressed down.
What are some of your favorite colors to wear to improve your mood?

Keeping it short and sweet this week. Two words: sequined blazers. Check into it! Such an incredibly versatile piece, as it can so easily be dressed up and dressed down. It looks amazing with jeans and heels and can just as easily pair with a sleek pencil skirt or pair of slacks for the office or more formal look. It’s such a great statement piece….I’m OBSESSED.
What do you think of sequined blazers?
UNTIL NEXT TIME!!!

Rockstars and sequins. Those two words pretty much sum up this outfit. The sequin part of the aforementioned statement of course is obvious (we’ll get to that later), but the rock star part might leave you wondering. Well my lovelies, let me introduce my fabulous Old Navy Rock Star jeans! When I saw they are fabulous, I mean it people! They fit like a glove, are uber comfortable and the boot cut cut on them is perfect for fall!
Now let’s talk about the sequin part of this “outfit equation.” I have say – I think I have been pretty successful so far in making it abundantly clear here on the blog my affinity for all that is sparkly, shiny, and especially sequined. This being said, when I saw this top at my local Old Navy, the “bug lamp” that is my obsession with all sparkly and shiny things “buzzed” quite loudly, resulting in my purchase. Now, with sequins you can always go the fancy and more formal route (which I LOVE), but you can also dress them down and go for a more “casual chic” look. “Casual Chic” definitely was the name of the game here, and I love how it all came together.
How do you like to style sequins? Is the traditional fancy your way to go or is “casual chic” more your cup of tea?
UNTIL NEXT TIME!!!

SHOP THE TREND:
Opposites attract. This is true both in romance my friends and in fashion! Lately we’ve been seeing all kinds of unlikely “mixing and matching” going on. Unusual pairings that you would never normally think would work together but they do! Print mixing has been a popular favorite recently. However what I’ve loved is truly unlikely pairings being put together and working fabulously.
Above is one of my favorite trends – camo. Being a girl who is attracted to anything sparkly or with sequins like a bug is to a bug lamp, of course I decided to mix in a bit of sparkle with my camo! My advice in making something like this work is to ground the two extremes with a neutral-colored piece, like a pair of pumps of a great bag or clutch and keep your accessories in the same color family as one of the pieces you are wearing. Here I stuck with the pink of the top.
When it comes to thinking of how to mix camo with some other pieces in your wardrobe, just think about this – camo, or the different colors of light and dark green, actually could be considered a neutral. As we all know, neutrals are so easy to pair great color with!
So, what you do think? Would you dare to mix such extreme opposites together?
UNTIL NEXT TIME!!!
