Yesterday it was plaid and leopard, today it’s stripes and spots? Not totally clear on the exact label of the print on this top, but I’m really into it! What the pictures don’t show is that it also has a hint of gold glitter! Gold, glitter, pattern mixing- I’m sold!! I love this look because it’s so fashion forward, but also so comfortable. These literally feel like pajamas!! This is the perfect “run errands while looking chic attire” AKA every Tuesday. It could easily be dressed up with a pair of strappy heels, but I like to keep it casual with classic quilted flats. To pull out the gold in the top and embellishment on the shoes, I wore it with a strand of my favorite Charleston Rice Beads. These can instantly jazz up any outfit and give your look that perfect finish. To contrast the red, black and white I added this bright blue bag. A little pop of color can really add some fun to your look and give you a put together look that you wouldn’t even expect!

Dare I say the fall weather is finally here to stay?! Either way, this amazing plaid coat can take you from fall to winter so you’ll definitely be wearing it for months to come. I’m loving just about every oversized coat that crosses my path this year, but the colors and print on this plaid beauty stole my heart! I layered it over a fun graphic tee that is fit for a queen (couldn’t resist) and the COMFIEST skinny jeans you’ll ever put on. Seriously, I did not want to take them off! I love that they are distressed and have torn hems at the bottom to give them a bit of that grungy look. I kind of feel like this whole outfit has a bit of a rock and roll vibe, but it doesn’t go overboard and still stays in the classically chic realm. This plaid on the coat is the best print for fall pattern mixing and leopard just goes beautifully with it! Leopard + this plaid = soul mates, for real. I always say subtle pattern mixing is a great way for someone who doesn’t normally take chances with fashion, to step outside their box. As usual, I accessorized pretty simply with this dainty but fabulous layered necklace. This is a great necklace for those who love the layered look but without all the fuss. Add a big oversized bag to go with your big oversized coat and you’re ready to go!!
