Mixed Prints and Styling Tips

Flannel: Rails Shirt: Zara Boots: Chloe Sunnies: Ray Ban Shorts: Rag and Bone

So maybe it’s because I’ve been revisiting my love for Son’s of Anarchy with a two week long binge marathon on Netflix, and I’ve been brainwashed by bikers in flannel but lately I’m in a mood for flannel and boots. And what better than exhibit my love of biker chic fashion (minus the traditional leather jacket) than my motorcycle Rag and Bone shorts, Zara stars tee and Rails flannel tee. Oh, and of course my beloved Chloe Savannah boots.

Normally, I er on the side of caution when mixing prints. As in I play it safe and don’t mix at all. But if watching Son’s has taught me anything, other than Charlie Hunnam really needs to come back to regularly scheduled TV, it’s that life is about taking risks. So when preparing this ensemble, I took a deep breath and took a fashion risk. So while no I don’t plan on making grunge a permanent staple in my daily attire, it is nice to dress down once in awhile. And comfy too. The only tips that I can offer when mixing prints is make sure they flow together. For me, this look came together in that they shared a similar color scheme. Blue and white were obviously the cohesive concept. And I also was inspired by an Americana vibe, with red white and blue. With Independence day merely a few months away, it’s never too early for a fashionista to start planning her options in advance.

As much as I love getting all dolled up for a red carpet, I was itching to get back to rocking out a good ready to wear outfit. Perhaps its because I’ve been seeing so many promos for Sons of Anarchy (seriously, is it September yet?) But today I was definitely feeling like a rebel without a cause, thus the little motorcycles on my cute little biker shorts. Enough with the cocktail dresses, give me some jeans!

This summer I’ve seized every opportunity to catch up on as many style books as possible. Currently taking up occupancy in my bag is Victoria Beckham’s style book “The Extra Inch.” In addition to reading it in a British accent, I’m actually learning a lot about some of her techniques on looking, and most importantly feeling fab. I never really bothered to affiliate looking good with feeling good, but since taking this advice into consideration I’ve altered the way I shop. Nobody likes admitting they’ve had to go up a size. But alas, I suppose it was bound to happen especially when for most of my life I was a size 24 or still fit into kids clothing (hooray for being short!) So what’s a girl to do when life is telling her to go up a size and her ego says just stick with clothes that say small? Just say screw it all and remove the tag! It’s not like anyone ever walks past you and says that outfit looks fab, what size is it? ┬áThat happens all of never! And I have never been so happy in a pair of jean shorts. Thank you so much for your posh advice Vicky!
