Stripes and Spots


Hello all! Hope everyone is having a lovely Wednesday, we are almost to Friday (yay Halloween weekend!) so we can all power through a little longer. Fall might be my favorite fashion season, I love how there is this sense of newness, maybe it's the leaves changing, school starting or the shift from hot to cool (or in the South hot to not as hot) which is why I love trying out new trends during this season. Two of my favorites have to be stripes and animal print!

First off, anyone can wear stripes, you just have to pick the right look. You want to avoid looking like Beetlejuice and unflattering lines.  When it comes to both trends, a little goes a long way. I prefer a striped top and denim cutoffs or as I paired today black denim. Black leggings are also a good choice, just make sure your top is long enough to pull off the leggings look. With animal print, it is feisty, flirty and fun but try and keep it minimal. Wearing leopard or cheetah print head to toe can make you look Jersey Shore circa 2009. If you wear a print dress, keep accessories simple and a basic color such as black or brown. I love wearing sleeveless print dresses in the fall and winter topped off with a leather jacket!

For today's look I started with pairing a super flattering and soft long sleeved stripe shirt, then add the print scarf, I like this one because it's thinner than a blanket scarf and you can wear it even when it isn't too terribly cold out. Top it off with my new favorite pair of distressed black jeans, a colorful crossbody and of course fringe booties. Then just like that you've mixed two trends into one outfit!

Shop the entire look below and I have a few more Halloween posts on tap plus I was thrilled to be nominated for the Liebster Award for new bloggers so I will be telling you guys about that tomorrow!
