Pattern Mixing with The Shoe Closet

img_2806img_2803img_2807img_2808img_2804

Hi there, y’all! I hope you are doing well! Did you survive Halloween? Whew, we did. And we had a lot of fun! My husband liked his gifts and his b’day cake. I made the easiest Oreo dump cake. I’m thinking I may need to share it here on the blog. If you would like to see it, let me know in the comment section below.

Today’s post is the last post with The Shoe Closet. If you’re just now following along with my posts about TSC, here’s a refresher. 

Located in Wichita Falls, Tx, The Shoe Closet has been the heartbeat of fashion in Texoma since 1984. With personalized styling and a warm atmosphere, the Shoe Closet is the go-to place for all things trending. They carry brands like Alice + Olivia, Tory Burch, and the upcoming accessory line Rory Ashton. Personally, I’ve been shopping at the Shoe Closet since high school. I have always appreciated their on-point advice and diverse merchandise. I’ve really enjoyed sharing so many fun looks that TSC has to offer.

Pattern play is one of the easiest trends to rock!

Whether you wearing a patterned mixed baseball tee, layering a striped tee under a floral print cardigan, or adding a polka dot blouse under a gingham sweater, pattern mixing can be achieved on any level.

My number 1 tip: Don’t be sacred of looking too busy. If you’re wearing pattern on top, keep it simple on the bottom, or vice versa. You can wear a full patterned look. I suggest staying within the same color family and having one main print with smaller, complimentary prints. 

For this Shoe Closet look, we have a leopard print top under a reversible camo/fur jacket — instant chic! As for the denim, TSC’s Hudson jeans are black, stretchy, and have grommet detailing down the leg. How cool would these look with a simple white tee and sunnies? Again, instant chic! And to top it off, the Jeffrey Campbell booties. These are next level. The adorn heel is very big this fall/winter! TSC is always in the know in regards to footwear trends.

NEWSFLASH! You can now shop The Shoe Closet online!  They are having an anniversary till Saturday. Check it out here.

Legging Love with The Shoe Closet

unnamed-4unnamed-2unnamed-5unnamed-6

Hey there! Happy Tuesday, to ya! I hope you’re having a lovely week.

Another great look from the Shoe Closet is on the blog today. First off, let me start off by saying I love leggings. I mean, what’s not to love? They are versatile and so comfy.

That’s why this look from The Shoe Closet is amazing.

The handbag and shoes are designed by Stacy Bendet for Alicia + Olivia. The “Stacy Face” clutch and shoes are playful and easy to wear. The mix of black, white, and red make a statement, yet feel classic at the same time. 

The combination of a tie-neck blouse layered over a long sweater, the Stacy clutch and sneakers is, well, perfection. Comfort meats style — the epitome of what I think fashion should be all about!

Building your own legging look is super easy

What look are you going for? How about a boho legging look? Add a poncho, booties, and a floppy hat. Or, If you’re looking for something on the classic side, add a white button up blouse, cardigan, scarf, and booties. 

With leggings, possibilities are endless! 

What’s your fall go-to look? 

Until next time, y’all!

unnamedunnamed-1unnamed-6unnamed-4unnamed-3

Hi guys! How are things? I’m so excited for fall! I may have already enjoyed a couple Pumpkin Spice Lattes, but hasn’t everybody? SO yummy! The past two weeks have been somewhat of a whirlwind for us. After a couple weeks of traveling, I’m diving back into the real world and loving on my babies. This momma miss her kiddos! 

As for today, I’m sharing another great look from The Shoe Closet. Also, don’t forget to enter for a chance to enter for a $100 gift card. Details below!

I adore today’s look not only because it’s comfortable, but because it speaks to my inner flower child. A poncho, flares, and platforms? I’ll take that! 

The poncho is made by Kerisma and at a steal of price — $65! The material has a nice weight and doesn’t not feel bulky. In fact, The Shoe Closet just received a new shipment of easy, solid sweaters that will carry through the season.

Paired with Hudson flares, Sam Eldelman platforms, and a fun tasseled Tory Burch bag, this look is perfect for football season. If there is a little chill in the air, layer a long sleeve tee, a white button up blouse, or a scarf to stay warm.

Navy Takeover with The Shoe Closet

Hey there! How is everyone? The past weekend was rough, yet sweet for us. My son came down with some a yucky infection this past week. Needless to say, this momma was super worried about her baby chick. All is well now! As a parent, doesn’t it feel like your world stops when your kiddo(s) are sick? On the other hand, my husband and I celebrated out 6th anniversary. Oh, how I love him so much. I think I’ll keep him! 

Today, I’m so excited to be sharing two looks from The Shoe Closet. Like I mentioned a couple weeks ago, I have teamed up with The Shoe Closet to share some of their fall/winter pieces through out September and October. Located in Wichita Falls, Tx, The Shoe Closet is a premier boutique that carries clothing, accessories, and footwear. With brands like Show Me Your Mumu, Parker, and Jeffrey Campbell, The Shoe Closet is the place to shop for the freshest and on-trend pieces.

Make sure you read this entire post. There might be a little surprise waiting for you at the bottom!

Today at TGND, it’s all about navy. I’ve always been such a fan of the color and Fall ’16 is navy’s time to shine. Said to be the color of sophistication, elegance, and power, navy is where it’s at.

Navy is the new black.

First up, let’s talk about the navy dress by Milly. Oh my! I instantly feel in love with the fabric (super soft and stretchy) and detailed sleeves of this Milly dress. Paired with the Stuart Weitzman block heel booties and B. Stellar necklace, this look is on fire!

For me, versatility is always key, and this dress is just that. Add pumps and a clutch or a cardigan and booties, this LND (yes, I’m making a new acronym) is the perfect fall go-to. I’m a curvy girl and I totally felt confident wearing this fitted style. I’m still working on my confidence, but I’m determined to be 100% in love with my body. Why not embrace it?

The B. Stellar necklace is 14k gold choker and chain adorn with a clear quartz. The stone is said to block negative energy and give balance. Oh, and the best part? B. Stellar is located in Dallas. I love nothing more than representing Texas-made products! You can find many more pieces at The Shoe Closet.

Next up, a very sleek and modern jumpsuit by Trina Turk. The asymmetrical fabric is super flattering and add an instantly “cool” factor! This jeweled long necklace gives just the right amount of sparkle. Have an event coming up? I would highly suggest reaching for a jumpsuit. They have a fresh, yet timeless feel that can make any woman feel amazing.
