All Mixed Up

{Urban Outfitters blazer (similar here), Ali & Kris toprag & bone/JEAN shorts, Marc Jacobs bag, Heels from Lulu’s (old), Elizabeth & James sunnies, Michael Kors watch, Bracelets: Stella & Dot c/o, Jewelmint c/o, David Yurman, Tory Burch earrings}

If you read this blog regularly, you already know I am a fan of mixing patterns.  I love breaking the rules!  I came across this striped blazer at Urban Outfitters and LOVE that it has vertical stripes instead of horizontal (which usually make you look wider).  I found that wearing colors in the same color scheme is what made this work. What fashion rules are you going to break this summer?

Yellow Shorts

{Madewell blouse, Forever 21 shorts (similar), Carlos Santano booties (very old, similar style here), Marc Jacobs bag, Michael Kors watch, Stella & Dot bracelet c/o, Alex & Ani bangles, Ray Ban sunnies}

I saw this picture of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley a few weeks ago and could not WAIT to recreate this outfit, especially since I had all of the pieces in my wardrobe already! I have been a sucker for anything yellow since spring, so when I saw these shorts a few months ago at Forever for $13, I knew they were coming home with me!  I find it really helpful to shop at more of the inexpensive stores when looking for trendy pieces, such as colored shorts.  It’s always better to invest in pieces you know you’ll wear, so I like to give it a “test drive” before making the splurge!  I love the color of these shorts because they’ll take me well into fall with a pair of cowboy boots and a comfy sweater.

Make sure you check back tomorrow… I have a pretty HUGE giveaway to tell you about!

I was finally able to see the beautiful rose garden down the street from our house… I had been dying to visit when the roses were in bloom and it was well worth the wait!  It looks like something right out of Alice in Wonderland… thousands of different roses in every shape and color.  It was really breathtaking!  This bow-tie top from Karen Kane is so on trend right now and one of my favorites for the summer.  I love the airy, bohemian feel of it.  I also paired it with white shorts and heels for a night out, so versatile!

Don’t forget to enter my Kiki La’Rue gift card giveaway that ends this Sunday! Winner will be announced next Monday!
