Often two or more prints worn in an outfit clash and don't look good together due to their competition for attention. However, prints in the same color family can often be worn together with harmonious results. You're also better off sticking to just two printed pieces; no overkill.
Hi Readers! No black friday shopping for me today, so I'm shopping my closet instead.
The inspo for today's outfit originally came from this pin:
I didn't especially like the belted cardi look when I tried it, so I came up with 4 different looks using different accessories. Feel free to vote for your fave! Also, it's cold and the shirt and sweater have terrible static cling, gah! Does that rubbing a dryer sheet on you thing work for getting rid of static? Any other tips? TIA!

Happy Thanksgiving all! We had a lovely early Thanksgiving on Sunday with our families, and the DH and I will stop at a truckstop serving a Thanksgiving buffet to celebrate again later.
Today I was inspired by these two outfits.

Since I got a pearl statement necklace recently, and I remembered Hello Gorgeous uses hers in many outfits, I decided to be inspired by one of her looks today. I also thought it would look pretty with the plaid shirt/sweater trend, although it's preppier than my usual style.

Hi friends! *waves*
I've been enjoying the heck out of my time visiting family and friends in CA, so here's my catch up post.
I did some shopping at Target and Kohl's. Here's my haulage:
Limited Edition satchel from Target in Charcol. Loving it so far, very versatile. Also my grandmother was able to fix the broken strap on my black bag, so I have it back as well. :)
Also picked up a clutch type jewelry holder, NYC Eye Palette, Revlon Lip Butter in Red Velvet, a pearl/bead necklace, (all from Target). From Kohl's I got the Be Delicious perfume and lotion set. With a 30% off coupon it was only $37.60.
My comfy ootd for shopping was inspired by this pin:
The light layers made it really easy to try on clothes, although I restrained myself and didn't end up purchacing any. (Please excuse the smudgy Target mirror.)
We attended our good friends' wedding. I went with my green dress and boots and added the pearl necklace. It ended up being perfect for the country vibe. Most guestse were in jeans or dresses and boots.
My NOTD was NYC Sidewalkers with Color Mates Glitter Glam.
We had our family's Thanksgiving yesterday; it was a blast!
My OOTD was loosely inspired by this pin:
My version was a big hit!
Monday's OOTD: more visiting with friends and fam before we leave tomorrow.
Thanks for looking!

Day 16: Sleek Black and Chambray
Yesterday's OOTD Pinspiration:
I'm finding new ways to style my chambray shirt. Love this look because it was comfy and streamlined with a bit of an edge. (Please excuse the smudge at the bottom, public mirror.)
Day 17: Animal Sweater, Burgundy, Chambray
Today's OOTD Pinspirations
I borrowed certain elements from each of the above looks. I may have incorporated all the fall trends in this outfit, lol. Animal sweater, burgundy pants, leopard print, moto boots chambray shirt, etc. Hard to get good pics; no mirror today. The DH was kind enough to photograph, but it was windy, so my hair and scarf are kind of everywhere, lol.

I always love touches of black, gray, and leopard print in my wardrobe, so this look has all three. Obviously my outfit is more form fitting than hers, and I didn't like the way the brown belt looked, so I did black. Also did moto boots to give it a bit of edge. Thanks for looking. :)
For a city affectionately known as Hot-lanta, I decided to dress up in something a bit more luxe. I love in this Pinspiration thah a slouchy gray tee is dressed up with a lace pencil skirt, statement jewelry, and a chic belt.
For my version I went with booties rather than pumps, and to make it more fall weather appropriate, a cardi and tights.
