Mixing Patterns with Tartan

Pattern mixing has always been one of my favorite things so it seemed like the perfect way to start off the new year and the new blog! First of all, let me say how excited I am about the new blog here and all of the exciting things I have planned for 2018. If you are not already signed-up for our newsletter, make sure to sign-up on the right. The newsletter will go out once a week with sneak peaks of upcoming content, exclusive details and style ideas, plus other exciting things you won’t see on the blog.

OK, now back to the important stuff, clothes! I feel like pattern mixing has this stigma of being really difficult, but it doesn’t have to be! Especially this time of year, you can easily mix two patterns and then tone it down with the rest of your  layers. Layering in general makes pattern mixing super easy because you have more options. So, if you are going to start pattern mixing, why not start now?

With an outfit like this, the plain jacket is what pulls the entire look together. So when you are trying to figure out what to wear, also take into consideration your non-patterned layers. These are what will help tone everything down while also connecting all of the pieces.

This skirt is one of my favorite pieces because it is tartan plaid, which I love. It also has navy and black in it so you can wear it with basically anything. As much as I love it though, it sadly doesn’t really fit me anymore. So I will be posting it on my ebay page later this week!

For those of you who don’t know, I am working on opening an online consignment store, but in the meantime, I have started posting early inventory on my ebay page. The things I am posting are not old or damaged in any way. They are just things I love, but no longer wear. So make sure to check it out and stay tuned for updates on the consignment store!  Until next time…

Hello all and Merry Christmas! I won’t say too much today but Merry Christmas and I hope you are enjoying this wonderful day! With my Christmas outfits, I always try and include a little red or green without going too over board. This tartan skirt was perfect for today especially with my New York Times t-shirt. I also love the tartan against this patterned clutch, which is actually made from painted canvases! Such a fun accessory and a great conversation piece for any holiday parties you might have! Finally, my lipstick and my necklace are both new and courtesy of my Zoe Report Box of Style. This is one of my favorite subscription boxes and I would definitely recommend it. 
Well, time to get back to the family! Merry Christmas! XO

So this year for Advent, my mom created an Advent calendar that has the typical candy, but also some other surprises. On December 2nd, I got one earring and had to wait eight days for the next one. The anticipation was so exciting, but it was also fun planning future outfits for when I finally got the second earring. This was such a fun way to create an advent calendar and I will definitely be doing this next year! Also look how cute the earrings I got are! I absolutely love them XO
