Confession: ever since the release of Princess Diaries, this look has inspired my entire athletic and sleepwear wardrobe. Weird right? I love shorts over leggings, and the more mismatched the better! (Another confession: 99% of my sleepwear is Star Wars themed, yeah I’m that cool.) When day #3 of the Style Collective Style Challenge was announced as pattern mixing, I was super exciting- till I tried to style a look. If you’ve been a long time reader you know I loveeee pattern mixing, and have pulled together some really off beat looks with it. For some reason though, the artistic juices would not flow to create a cute spring pattern mixed look this time though. Then I opened my drawer of workout gear and this happened:
Princess Mia inspired and completely how I dress on a day to day basis. I know they clash, and are completely different shades, and go against all rules of patten mixing, but somehow, in someway it works. Don’t ever be afraid to try the wacky, to put together the ridiculous and then to rock the hell out of it!
My Sweet Baboo shot these pics at an outdoor gym up the road from us, and after days of cold rain, and being cooped up studying playing like this was exactly what I needed. Sometimes we just need to stop overthinking and just have fun, laugh, and enjoy the outside!
Mind you I was not actually working out, just playing around so I tried something new that day with my hair, and my Irresistible Me hair extensions! (Check out my original post here.) I love how they look when braided into my natural hair; they just make it look so thick and full. It’s my new favourite hairstyle and I’ve been wearing them so often! I know everyone thinks about extensions with their hair down, but definitely give it a go with your hair up as well!
