CAMEL ON REPEAT

fashion

I am loving this custom camel coat so much that i have worn it so many times, I think my friends are getting tired of it lol. Oh well I love it tho, and I am always proud of myself when I am able to accomplish something. I have put myself on a ‘no buy’ status, where I have decided not to purchase anything new for my wardrobe till the end of the year, this is in an attempt to start living my new minimal life, living with less. Now some may say the end of the year is around the corner but if you know me, you will know this will be a challenge. I am determined tho and pray that I will stick to this. Here is how I wore it.

BASICALLY

fashion

Black and white is my thing. And I’m not talking about the “when all fails you can fall on black and white”, I am really into that stuff. Anyway, I dress up to take the little one to day care or at least I try to. Here is me trying. Have fun with it! (By it I mean FASHION)

A LESSON IN PRINTS FROM SOLANGE

fashion

I do love my black and white but sometimes I like to add some prints. I took a class in prints from Solange cos she does it oh so well. Here is what I learnt:
inspo
inspo5
inspo7
You can mix black and white stripes with any print because black, and white go with everything!
inspo4

inspo8

inspo10

inspo9
You can mix prints that although are different style prints, have the same color scheme.
inspo1

inspo3

inspo6
And you can mix prints whose colors compliment each other and that have the same style print but in different colors (this is confusing I know, an example would be the polka dots outfit. different colors but all polka dots).
sources 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. Try some print mixing and show them you took the class too! 🙂

PRINT IS IT!

fashion

Love working with wax prints. Because they can be busy and I don’t always want the too busy look, I tone it down with a neutral. They can also work with well with stripes, I’ve seen it. its cool. Try it!
