Mixing stripes is probably one of my favorite prints to mix and match. For this look I stuck with black, brown, grey and blue. The yellow in this shirt adds a little something extra to the look but doesn’t overwhelm it. Layering was key with this look. I wanted to add some definition to my waist so I added the black belt to pull everything together.

It’s been rainy and cold here in the Carolinas and we got a little stir crazy just sitting in the house. We decided to try one of the local breweries I town and had a blast!
You’ve probably noticed that I don’t really match my outfits and I don’t really have a particular style. I have two philosophies on my outfits. The first one is they shouldn’t be boring or too expected. I’ve believed that since I was little. Matching my clothing just isn’t me. I used to be bullied for a lot of reasons and how I dressed was one of them. Overtime though, I just learned to not really care what other people thought of me. I learned that my unique perspective was a gift. The second philosophy is what I wear should match how I feel. Sometimes I feel really lady like and want to wear a skirt and heels and other times I want to wear a pair of jeans and sneakers. As long as what I’m wearing flatters my body and makes me happy, that’s all that matters to me. I don’t really have a style and don’t fit into a category….and I’m okay with that. If you feel the same way, like you don’t fit into a category, know that you’re not alone. I’m right there with you.
I originally wore this dress over the summer. I love the length of it and the pattern. It was easy to throw a sweater over it with some boots. Here’s the first look:

This jumpsuit from Charlotte Russe was perfect for last night. We went out to eat and then watched fireworks on the lawn.

Red and blue is a classic combination that never gets old to me. The shirt and skirt were purchased at Forever21. I found these shoes at Ross for $15.
Keke Palmer rocked this blue and black suit last night on the red carpet for an event at the BET Awards.
