Mixing patterns and textures is one of my favorite things to do when outfit planning. I think sometimes the misconception is to shy away because it looks too busy or that there is a wrong way to do it, and I just don’t buy it. Here’s an example of mixing patterns, textures and the “oh-no-she-didn’t” blue and black combo. Despite all this outfit has going on, I think it works. The most important aspect of any outfit is to own it and never apologize. The cooler months can actually allow for multiple layers… so why not make it interesting?
Old Navy has been stepping up their game recently and I’ve been like a kid in a candy store every time I step inside. I’ll be keeping tabs on all their fabulous sales too… so make sure to check back here for the steals and deals. I have another dual outfit post with Old Navy on deck for next week!
If you follow me on Instagram (which you definitely should), you may have seen yesterday that I took over the Bluefly Instagram account to show a taste of my perfect fall day! Today, we’re teaming up to show off a fall look featuring this gorgeous wine-colored leather jacket… perfect timing for the cool weather we’re having this week! A leather jacket is usually the main focus of my fall uniform and I loved that this beautiful wine color and quilted texture makes it stand out from the other black jackets I have in my closet. Throwing it on with my favorite distressed black jeans gives the look a more casual feel. Add in this blanket scarf (a must-have this season) and you have a very practical (and warm) outfit!
