FASHION FOCUS: MIXED PRINTS
Mixing prints and patterns as well as different textures has now been remade to be popular. However, the "trend" hasn't always been on it's peak mainly because if it isn't done right, the person tends to look a little if not a whole lot of tacky. The trick with this crazy trend is to find pieces that are both subtle and bold all at once. For example, in today's look, I am wearing a black and gold stripe crop top along with a floral skirt but if you notice, both my skirt and my top share a common color, which is black. Which then somehow pulls the two opposing patterns together. Also, in this look, I decided to wear a slouch red blazer to give the outfit some kind of structure but at the same time keeping it wearable and casual.

The woven bag & bracelet are from Joan & Jesula, a Lorraine Tayne collection. Sunglasses from Giant Vintage
A few days ago, I received a special parcel from Lorraine Tayne which contained a bracelet, a beautiful woven handbag and a pair of lightning bolt earrings (not shown). I was super psyched because I loved every item! It not only suits my style but believe it or not, these pieces are pretty affordable too. Sadly, they are not available on the site anymore but if you check out their site you will see amazingly crafted jewelry and accessories that you will surely love. The Joan & Jesula collection was specifically made for women who want that everyday glam accessory and she can wear with multiple pieces in her wardrobe.

FASHION FOCUS: BRINGING BACKPACKS BACK
I don't know about you guys but I have not worn a backpack since middle school-ish days and ever since then, I have always worn a handbag or satchel/ book bag to school. But lately, I've been loving the look of these fashionable backpacks. Not only is it incredibly spacious but it's amazing in the style department as well. It's different because of the style and fabrics that were used! It's not your typical Jansport hence, it could be worn by anyone who wants to be more fashionable without looking ridiculous or better yet, like a 4th grader.

FASHION FOCUS: DENIM ON DENIM
This trend might have been on the fashion faux pas list a few years back, but hey! look where it's at now. In today's look, I incorporated two shades of denim. One that is a lighter wash used as a vest and  the other considerably darker wash denim used on my bottom half. This then creates depth to the entire look without looking like a patchwork of denim fabric.

FASHION FOCUS: COLOR/PRINT BLOCKING
Today's "Sunday-funday" outfit consists of color/print blocking. By incorporating a bright colored top, wild print bottoms and another bright colored pair of killer heels. And as always, over-accessorizing is a must for me, so stack and layer on the gold. It's ok if you mix different colored metals as it adds more depth to your look. I also finished off this look by adding a light washed denim vest with a few studs on both pockets. It not only makes this outfit less "glamorous" and more casual but gives it that edgy feel to it.
