Corporate Chic: Black and White Prints

Greetings Loves! 

Today's look is all about Black and White Prints. Some may consider black and white to be boring, but as you can see in my look, it doesn't have to be.  I opted to pair a larger print with a more subdued print to keep my look balanced.  I must admit, I am grateful to work in an environment where I am at liberty to get a little funky with my office attire every now and then.

More Mixing Prints

Good Day Loves!!!

Today's look is a continuation of last week's style challenge of Print Mixing. Mixing prints is not a trend for the faint of heart. However, there are definitely ways to keep it subtle if you want to try this trend but not necessarily go all out. The formula is to have a common thread which grounds the look. I typically tend to stick with the same color palette. For example, I'll mix a black and white polka dot skirt with a black and white striped top. The black and white is the common denominator, which pulls the look together. If you're not careful it can come across as busy, tacky, and clownish. My suggestion for those who want to experiment with this trend but still are a little leery; start off with using your accessories, as demonstrated in my last look here! Hope you enjoy today's look and don't be afraid to "Mix it up" a bit! :-)

Subtle Mixing of Prints

Greeting Loves!!

Hoping you all had a great holiday weekend! Today, I wore my red midi skirt and paired it with a printed blouse. I am discovering that shopping my closet is not only economical but a lot of fun. It gets my creative juices flowing. So about my look, I thought leopard pumps were the perfect compliment to this ensemble. You can always count on leopard or any type of animal print, to add a little spice to any outfit. If you'd like to see how I styled this midi previously, feel free to check that out here. Well, this was my take on print mixing. Hope you Enjoy! XOXO
