REMIXED: How to Style Pants Two Different Ways

“I don’t wear the same thing twice but I do wear the same thing more than once.”

When I was younger, my life goal was not to ever wear the same pants, dress or shoes more than once. I just wish I could go back and slap myself and say, girl get a grip and save your money. I spent every little dime on clothes and shoes because I thought I had to have something new every single day. Well, I’m older and wiser and I’ve come to the realization I don’t have to wear an outfit twice but I can definitely wear my favorite pieces more than one time.

One piece of wisdom I give to anybody that asks for fashion advice is to buy solid every-day pieces. Purchase a great pair of pants, a little black dress (LBD), a button-down shirt and a sensible but sexy pair of heels. These solid pieces can be mixed and remixed to make a bunch of different looks. The pair of polk-dot pants I’m wearing were purchased because I knew I could wear it so many different ways.

In the first look, I subtly mixed prints. I styled my polka-dot pants with a polka-dot H&M men’s button down shirt. I brought in color in my little lip clutch and a pair of bright red Jessica Simpson heels. The starry-night cap brought this whole look together. The next way I styled these solid every-day pants was with an off-shoulder red sweater. I kept the bag and heels the same but added a wide brimmed hat or a more elegant feel. Both looks are so easy to copy and even easier to wear. A great pair of pants always adds more variety and selection to your closet.

Now, which styling of these every-day pants did you like better? Which way would you see yourself wearing the polk-dot pants or would yo have worn it differently? Remember to pick solid pieces that you can interchange and mix for different and unique looks. FYI, If you have a little money after picking up that LBD, those awesome pants, that button-down and those sexy heels, pick up a nice blazer and your closet will be complete. It’s February but New Years Goals should be all year around, if you didn’t read my post on how to set realistic goals, click HERE!

FurryFriends: My Favorite Faux Furs

This list of my favorite faux furs are sure to make any girl swoon

Y’all it’s winter. Well, not really for us down in the South but don’t let that stop you from pulling out your furs. This post is all about my favorite faux furs this season and how you can wear them. Listen Linda, don’t log off, I won’t have you looking like an 80’s rapper I promise. Keep reading and get ready to purchase one or more of my favorite faux furs this season.

When it comes to wearing Fur, less is more. If you’re not going for a really dramatic look or a runway look, you can wear fur and not look over the top. Remember, fur can be just around the collar of a jacket or a fur throw over your shoulder. Nothing looks as good as a leather jacket with a fur collar. Whether your fur is real or faux, don’t be afraid to rock it.

This look I have on is the over-the-top fur look but like I said, you can make it more subdued. An all black outfit with a colorful fur or even a black fur will make the outfit more luxe and sophisticated. Scroll through to see some of my favorite fur looks. These looks range from a simple fur collar on a leather jacket or coat to knee-length fur coats. These should inspire you to figure out which trend and type you could see yourself wearing:
