19 Camo-Stripe Looks to Copy…

BANNERI am obsessed with everything fashion and one trend I am loving right now is pattern mixing. Pattern mixing is anything that combines two or more patterns. Personally, I stick to mixing two patterns and one of my favourite combos right now is camouflage + stripes. So many bloggers out there have done up their own look using camo and stripes. So I am pulling my favourite renditions that I have found out there…

Camo and stripes can totally be BFFs.:

I love rounding up my favourite looks from different bloggers because it spreads the word about these fabulous ladies and the marvelous fashion that they showcase. Camouflage can scare some people, but I say try it! Why wouldn’t you? Start off small with camo accessories if you are feeling a little anxious. Then work your way up to the larger pieces like tops and bottoms!

Pairing camo with stripes or another pattern is a fun way to mix up your look – give it a try!

Neutrals + A Pop of Pink

As the weeks get busier and as I approach finals season, it’s getting harder and harder to shoot these details…so today, I am sharing a more neutral work look that I sported this past Summer. Working downtown is super fun – being in a professional setting requires professional clothing and there is nothing more fun than dressing up every day and looking amazing

Neutral Tones + a Pop of Pink

Neutral Tones + a Pop of Pink

This simple outfit was just that – completely simple. When in a professional setting, there shouldn’t be too much bling (so to speak) and although colours are awesome, sometimes the best choice is to go for a low-key colour palette and add a pop of colour. Low-key neutrals are great for the professional world, but who says you can’t add a little colour?

Neutral Tones + a Pop of Pink

These shoes are great. Being a student, I have to try to keep costs down and heels can get really expensive. For a cute pair of coloured heels that are only for the summer (and mainly just for work), these Comfort Plus shoes are the ideal choice. Plus, how cute is the colour? Against the neutral tones, black and white, this livens the look right up. Plus, just how the brand states – they are so comfortable!!

It’s interesting to see how style can evolve over time depending on where you are, where you work, and what you like! My style has certainly changed over the years and a neutral look like this is one of my favourites these days! Comfortable and affordable style is my thing, and this is a chic look that is easy to put together (and appropriate) for the workplace!

Pinspiration: Stripes and Chambray

What comes with my love for fashion, is my obsession with fashion platforms. Instagram, fashion blogs, tumblr – they all are perfect outlets to find those fashion friendly looks. There is one platform, however, that I love beyond all of them, and that is Pinterest. If you are a social media lover, like me, you probably know about it, or have one yourself. The best part about Pinterest, is how many different categories are featured. I love to sift through fashion boards, clothing boards, accessory boards – you name it, I love it.

When I find a cute look on Pinterest, I try to replicate it as best as I can, by myself. I use my own clothing, or I go out and get something similar. What I have actually started to do, is if I am contemplating buying a new piece of clothing, I search it on Pinterest first, so I can see what I could wear it with. That way, I know if I will actually wear it…because I will have motivation to recreate an outfit. So that’s what I’m going to highlight today – one of the looks, that I have recreated (not exact) using an inspiration from Pinterest. A “Pinspiration”, you may say…

This is the first shot I saw of this look, and the photo that inspired the recreation. I love how simply put together it is. My favourite part is the pop of colour that the pink shoes give. They really tie the whole look together and keep it looking fresh!

I put a little bit of a different spin on my recreation of this look. The skirt is the same, purchased from Modcloth. The chambray, I picked up from Target (always a great place for staple items). I think the stripes and chambray compliment each other overall, very well. I decided against pairing this look with a statement necklace. Instead, I chose a thick, gold costume chain from Icing. I think it’s subtle enough, but still gives the sparkle that the look needed. Although I loved the pop of colour in the heels, I thought that the look I put together worked better with neutral flats in black. These flats are from mark. by Avon and they are truly amazing – pretty much my go-to black flats. Great for work, social outings, or a casual day.

It’s always good to have inspiration when putting looks together. Sometimes, I get stumped on what I should wear (especially when you have so many options). When in doubt, go online – there is a never ending supply of looks to replicate and make your own! I will never get tired of the many fashion boards, blogs and website that are dedicated to style.

As long as you look and feel good, why not shake things up and put things together as you please? Nothing wrong with experimenting!

Happy Fri-Yay!

Is anyone pumped that it’s the weekend? I can’t wait to get this day through so I can relax this weekend!! It’s going to be great to just put my feet up and not have to think about school (yes!!). I’m even more exciting to dive into the world of printed fabric today with you guys. For today’s favourite print, I am going to talk about stripes and why I love them. There are so many types of looks that you can incorporate stripes and I am going to show you exactly how I wear them…

Stripes on a White Background

Stripes on a white background are great. I have several types of these shirts and they are perfect for a lighter look! This look was inspired by something I saw on PinterestI love this colour palette because it isn’t outrageous, but it includes enough colour so that it isn’t completely boring. Having the tan colour as the base of the look, it adds to the outfit by complimenting the gold accessories. The patterned shirt does a great job of counteracting the other solid pieces in the look.

Stripes on Stripes

This is a unique look – not one that you see very often, but I thought it looked super cute! When it comes to mixing patterns, you need to be careful. There are some patterns that compliment each other, and some patterns that don’t as well. When mixing patterns of teh same family (i.e. floral on floral), you should have some consistency. For this look, I decided to keep consistent with the colour scheme of my pattern. My turtle neck and vest are both striped, but they are inverse in colour scheme!

Colourful Stripes

I tend to stick to neutral tones for striped patterns. But lately, I have decided to mix it up and have been getting more and more colourful! This is a band wagon I have jumped on…but definitely will be added to more looks in the future. Something to consider as well is different striped pieces. Not only can you play with colour, but you can play with the different types of patterned pieces you choose to add to your closet (skirt, blazer, etc.).
