Mix-It-Up

“I love a woman that knows how to mix prints like a BAWSE!”

Have you ever tried to mix prints, pattern and textures and just given up because it was too hard? This blog post is just for you. We will be talking about how to mix prints, and textures without looking like a clown. You may not be a fan of this trend, but it is here to stay and will definitely have you looking like a style pro…so give it a try and mix it up. Here are my 5 go-to rules on how to mix prints like a BOSS:

  1. Find prints with one or two common colors
  2. Find a pattern that super busy and one that is a little less busy
  3. Find items with a common background color: either light or dark background
  4. Pastel prints mixed together is an easy go-to look
  5. stripes and florals or stripes and stripes are always a YES

In these pictures you’ll see celebrities from Solange to Blake Lively slaying and showing us how to wear mixed prints. All of them follow these simple five rules and they come out looking like they stepped right out of the pages of Vogue magazine (fyi: some of them probably did). This trend is not hard. I want you to give it a try and see how fun playing with prints can really be.

My look today is a nod to the mixed print trend. I paired a printed peplum blouse with a textured bottom and ended up with this amazing and chic look. My shirt is going to be in my collection ShakaraFAB that will be available next summer for purchase. The pants are from Dillards, the shoes Amazon, and everything else will be down at the bottom for purchase.

So, do you think you are daring enough to give this trend a try?! Now that you have the rules in hand, go into that closet and pull out some clothes and start mixing. I look forward to seeing what you come up with. Tag House of Odara on Facebook and find me on Instagram at Oluwafunmifly.

Konnichiwa Friends…

or better yet, Good day. It’s FRIYAY and the weekend begins. I am keeping this post really short and simple because this outfit is just that, sweet and simple. I found this gorgeous “Japanese” inspired kimono on my favorite site Amazon and I dreamed about it until I finally saved up my coins to purchase it on Prime Day. I’m thinking about doing video reviews of the items I get from Amazon and other sites, what do you guy think about that?!

So, the Kimono came in two days (Prime) and it was perfection. FYI Amazon prime is offering 30 day free trials for those who want to take advantage of two day shipping and free shipping and handling. Click Here for the offer. The robe/kimono was silky, belted and the color was amazing. I actually hosted one of my friends plays in this very outfit. I got so many compliments and inquiries about the kimono that I decided I had to blog it. The beauty of this piece is that it’s so in season right now. Celebrities have been wearing the kimono/trench look all summer long. Beyonce’s Gucci kimono cost a whopping $21,945….I found mine on Amazon for less than $25.00

So these stars may have spent a fortune on their Kimonos, but you can get the same floral look for WAY LESS.

I paired this look with some simple distressed light jeans, a yellow Giani Binni blouse, Amazon gladiator heeled sandals and some gorgeous tassel earrings also from Amazon. CLICK ON PICTURES TO GO DIRECTLY TO THE SITE.

Let me know your thoughts on the whole kimono trend…whether you like it or not, and why. I love it because it’s so lightweight, I can wear it during the summer and also use it to cover up some too tight jeans and my juicy, juicy arms…lol!

These pics were taken at Aldridge Gardens in Hoover, AL. This place is absolutely gorgeous. You can look below for some pics from the spot!
