I feel like it’s been forever since I shared a good ol’ fashioned ‘style tips and tricks’ blog post, so I figured this bold outfit was the perfect opportunity to dish on what I’ve learned about pattern mixing over the years. I never used to mix prints before I started blogging, but through a lot of trial and error, it’s now one of my favorite ways to spice up any outfit! Why is pattern mixing worth the trouble? After you get over the initial “I have no idea if this looks good” hump, print mixing can do wonders for your closet by dramatically increasing the versatility (and cost per wear) of your garments. Suddenly, you can make so many more outfit combos from the pieces you already own! So here are some of the print mixing tricks I’ve learned and the mistakes I’ve learned to avoid.

My May Quarantivities

On the first day of May, my parents and I decided that we would do one fun, interesting, or out-of-the-ordinary activity each day of the month in order to lift our spirits and spice up the quarantine life a little—I call them our May “Quarantivities”. I would be lying if I said quarantine was a walk in the park (literally and figuratively), which is why I’ve been so grateful to have these activities to make me smile each day. Not to mention, these pastimes will be just as fun with friends and family as we enter summer and even post-quarantine life. I hope sharing them encourages you to find a dose of joy in each day, too!

I’m missing taking pretty pictures at the Denver Botanic Gardens right now… And wearing cute shoes. But until I can do that again, I realized it’s about time to share my most recent outfits of the day in a blog post! Now I’ll be honest… even though I advocated for getting dressed every day of online classes, there were still a few days of quarantine where I just lounged in sweatpants. What can I say, I’m human. But for the rest of the days, here are some of my favorite outfits from the last few weeks inside. Usually I share where I wore each outfit in this kind of post, but uh… since we’ve all been doing our best to stay home, I think you can guess where I wore these looks—the kitchen, the living room, my bedroom… You’ll also notice that my quarantine style has evolved to include basically no jewelry and no shoes. That’s just how we roll. As always, I listed where I bought each item, how much it cost, and linked it to the last blog post in which it was featured! Which outfits would YOU wear?!
