{ Dare To Wear } Sweatshirt + Short Skirt

It’s January so obviously I opted for a short skirt and high boots. The Dare To Wear blog series is all about showing three ways to wear one piece so it was time for this sweatshirt I’m so obsessed with to be paired with something a tad dressier than in week’s past.

{ Style Tips }

1. Do a little tuck to adjust the fit. The sweatshirt didn’t fit quite as tight as I would have liked so I gave it a sublet tuck in the center of the back to change the way it lays.

2. Break up black by mixing textures. There’s faux leather, quilting, knitted hosiery, and a sweatshirt getting in on the mix to keep this balck from feeling anything but boring.

3. Monochromatic outfits mean the accessory options are endless. You can keep it simple with minimal jewelry, opt for a fur scarf, or go all put and intermix style accents.

{ Interview } Tips On Fashion, Blogging & Dream Chasing

It’s getting to that point where people stop saying Happy New Year, but we’re not quite there so let me say it once more, Happy New Year! You may notice things look a little different around here. Sometimes I get the itch for change and nothing can stop me. When I was a kid I’d rearrange the furniture in my bedroom and pretty much every other room in the house. My parents would come home or wake up and be like, ” when did you do this?” I do this at my place now, remix my wardrobe and how I do my makeup, and so the blog sometimes also needs an impromptu upgrade. It wasn’t really impromptu. It was planned but happened sooner than scheduled.

Speaking of sooner than planned, the creation of this blog happened in a similar fashion. SkinnyAffair.com recently asked me about how the blog came about, my tips to aspiring bloggers, what’s in my bag and more. It was a lot of fun answering the interviewer’s questions as SA is the blog of Melissa Funtanilla, who recently celebrated her first year blogging at Trend Hungry!

I did the interview a little while ago so it was cool to go back and read it. It’s reminded me of two things that have been important in my journey and I’d like to be mindful of this year.

 { Trend Hungry Tuesday } Mixing Prints

Have fun with fashion. This trend requires it. It’s mixing prints together. So plaid and polka dots is a now a fashion DO as are stripes and floral designs. This is one trend you have to try to for yourself and a few celebs are showing us how it’s done.

Gwen Stefani always looks so put together but always with a cool, rocker edge. This past weekend she rocked striped sunnies with a dotted top and plaid pants. It might would like a lot going on, but it totally worked,

Beyoncé is another who’s been into pairing prints lately and posted a few different outfit pictures on Instagram.

Famous fashionistas that have been known to mix prints are Kourtney Kardashian and Jessica Alba.

{ Tips & Tricks To Pairing Patterns }

1. For easy pairing, try prints that are in the same color family.

2. Style a loud print with one that’s more subtle to balance the look. The subtle will act as a neutral.

3. Guess and test. It’s the only real way to find out what YOU like.

4. Go light on accessories. Let the prints do the talking.

As for snagging this trend on a budget, you can go pretty much anywhere, even your own closet. I found some stellar styles for a steal and Forever 21. They only look luxe.

There’s a Polka dot skirt for under $25,and striped top for under $10 and many more stylish finds. Scroll through the showroom and mix and match to your style preference.
