OOTD - Saturday Pattern Mixing

This is a link up post for Marionberry Style. Marion's Trend of the Month Link-up is Pattern Mixing. You can check out all the other links on her blog. 

Pattern mixing is a huge trend right now and is fairly easy to follow. Pick a color scheme and stick with it. Go for monochromatic color with just the patterns to mix, or go for a wild look with an awesome floral pattern and mix with a colorful stripe or dot.

I kept mine simple with just some good old white and navy dots and stripes. I brought in some color with my pale green sandals and bubblegum lipstick.

OOTD & Eva's Hair

It is hard to get past the Victoria Beckham poses. I always get at least one or two in. 

Casual Friday at it's best. I love this crochet crop top so much. It feels so summery and alive. My rockstar jeggings fit like a glove and feel so great even on these hot days!! 

These are my attempts at posing non VB style.

OOTD & Quick Eye Makeup Tutorial

Today was one of those days. 
The kids were everywhere going 100 miles an hour. 
My jeans have a stain on them, a little orange dribble from the Popsicle that my daughter is holding. Oh the life of a parent. 

This is one of my absolute favorite color combinations - pale pink and taupe. I do not really know why it is just very relaxed and soft looking. 

Enjoy my posing attempts. I always envision Victoria Beckham when I pose in front of a camera and that habit is proving very difficult to break.

OOTD - Sunday Print & White Shorts

This is one of my favorite looks. I love love love the crispness of a pair of white shorts. They always look so neat and clean and summery, especially when paired with a really pretty preppy pattern.

What can I say about my Tory Burch Revas in Royal Tan that I have not already?? They are uber comfortable now they feel like second skin. BUT they are getting really worn around the edges. I think it might be time to get another pair or TB's in a very neutral wearable color of some sort. Just to supplement these so that I do not wear them as much.

Buxom Lip Cream in White Russian

Here's another bit of info that I have yet to really say out loud. Well, I have said it to my daughter who has been bugging me and begging me to grow out my hair. I think I just might. I have yet to really tell anyone else though, but I think I just might. I do miss having extra long hair. But I love the ease of my current cut. Of course my current style is going on 5 years old. It is just so easy and always always looks finished. How do I pull that off with long hair?
