If you haven't caught on by now, I love effortless style! This outfit is no exception. Wearing prints sometimes is not easy as wearing a solid or neutral color. If you haven't mastered mixing prints with patterns, keep it simple! The secret is; If you are going to wear print bottoms, keep your shirt or blouse neutral. If you decide to wear a print top, keep your bottoms neutral (meaning, a solid color). That is EXACTLY what I did here! Check out my Easy Summer Print Outfit !

In order for this print to stand out, I kept everything around me solid. I added an outerwear cargo jacket which is navy blue, which matches the navy blue color in between the leaves on the blouse.  The cargo jacket adds comfort to this easy going outfit.

I could of gone with blue jean shorts, however, it wouldn't have the impact that the white shorts give. The white shorts highlight the print blouse, and wearing white in the summer means it's breathable! 

This outfit even looks good without the cargo jacket!

The best part of this outfit is not only the print top, but these gold Sperrys! They fit nicely with the yellow hues of the blouse. Almost as if it's the summer sun! :) Furthermore, these gold tone shoes accent my jewelry nicely. You can always switch out the sneakers with light brown or gold tone wedges to kick up this casual look.

Happy Post-Easter Everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying their time with their families and friends! Whether you celebrated Easter or not, you can always dress up on this day! I decided to put together a dress that I had not worn! I tend to buy items that I won't wear immediately, but know "I will wear it one day" (as I tell myself). This is one of those dresses!


I wear a lot of A-Line Dresses because it flatters my body and creates more of a shape. Since my figure is an up and down shape rather than curvy, I need to make sure I find dresses that grab me at the waist, and flare out at that ends. That is the A-Line Dress! The good news is, an A-Line dress can flatter any figure! This style will make someone with curves look like they have a tiny waist. It's a great style to play with and feel elegant in. 


I decided to pick an A-Line dress that has a floral print on it because of my figure. Prints add some build-on to my body, and leads the eye to focus on the shape and print of the dress. If you have curves, try wearing a solid or neutral color to make you look long and lean.


This plastic beaded necklace I have worn several times with different outfits ranging from casual to dressy. Invest in a similar necklace with color! You won't regret it.


I am finally using this purse from Kate Spade New York because of the awesome color block. It fits the theme for Spring and big enough to hold all my stuff for travel, or on-the-go!

Since I have a lot going on with the outfit, I kept my shoes neutral to best finish this look. Neutral heels will always make your legs look longer so pick a shoe color that blends well with your skin tone.



A must have item is THE TRENCH COAT! Invest in one! It makes any outfit look classy chic!
