Color Me Fall

Navy & Pink Obsession


Hello Dolls,

Fall weather is approaching (or already here for some of you lucky people) which means Fall color palettes are on the mind. Of course darker tones and neutrals are constant staples; however, I wanted to highlight one of my FAVE combinations that I'm recently obsessed with: NAVY BLUE & PINK!

What shade of pink you ask? Well, any shade really...but personally I am drawn to a light powder pink or softer shades, rather than bright and bold. Navy is a bold color itself, so a lot of bold pink is more competitive. A softer and lighter pink is a nice compliment to the darkness of the navy. 

HOW TO WEAR IT:


Choose either navy OR pink as your main color for the look. Then add in pops of the other color. Do not try to even them out, as your look can appear too loud and messy.




 If you want to add in a print, make sure to keep it simple, and probably to just one item, so as not to overwhelm. If you're a seasoned print mixer, have at it but make sure one print is more subtle than the other so they don't compete for attention.




Mixing pinks is totally acceptable when playing with this color combo. Again, focus on one shade/family of pink color and use another for a fun and unexpected accent!





Even men look can pull off this color combo, and look amazing. Loving the pink tie, with a sharp navy suit. 

 


BONUS: 

Navy and pink is also a great combination for home decor!








Now all we need is the cool weather...

Until next time fashionistas!

All Choked Up!

TGIF Fashionista Dolls!

Ok, ok. I know that the choker trend has been around for a little while, but I am just now seriously embracing it. A SERIOUS nod to the 90s, this trend used to be worn with baby doll dresses and chunky Doc Martins. Today (although still very appropriate with the above mentioned items) chokers have been updated for a more modern look with many different textiles and embellishments. 


METAL: Want a more sophisticated feel? Try a chic metal one. 


  



SIMPLE: Want one that goes with almost any ensemble? A simple, thin black shoe-lace like choker with gold hardware at the ends.







BOHO: Floral chokers add a touch of femininity and romance.





BOLD/STATEMENT:  Make your choker the focal point of your look.  


    
                 Etsy - $40                                           ASOS - $13                   


ROMANTIC: Velvet. Plain and simple.





ALTERNATIVE/PUNK: "Tattoo" chokers are right up your alley.




However you embrace this trend, chokers add a wonderful (and unexpected) accent to each outfit; and at seriously reasonable prices, it's not a big investment if you want to try it out. Who knows? It may turn into your go-to item this Fall. 

Until next time, Dolls!

XOXO

TRENDING: BOMBER JACKETS & BODYSUITS


Hello my fashionista Dolls,


As Fall arrives, as do the new trends to be conscious of. I never thought I'd see the day where 90s bodysuits made a serious comeback. Well, that day is here and they are EVERYWHERE. I actually welcome their return, as they are amazing for layering, and wearing under high-waist skirts and pants.  There is nothing worse than a top that wont stay tucked in, or is too bulky under layers; making you feel like Violet Beauregarde after she eats the "three-course-meal" gum.





Bomber jackets are also gaining serious momentum, now that designers have delivered them to us in bright colors and bold designs. If you are more reserved in your fashion statment, try one in a solid olive green satin, or a classic brown leather. They are perfect for the coming crisp Fall weather, and actually pair quite nicely with the bodysuit - think Maverick's girlfriend meets Brenda Walsh. 





Have fun with these two! I know I will. 

XOXO
