My Style Goals 2018-Your Inspiration

Last week I wrote a post all about how to set your 2018 style goals. I got to thinking that it wasn’t really fair that I gave y’all a big task and I didn’t even talk about my own goals. So in case you’re looking for a little more inspiration, I thought I’d share. At the moment, I don’t have too many style goals, because I need to save a little room on my list for the rest of my ambitions.

How to Wear the Maximalism Trend

Have you been feeling maximal lately? Good! Today’s post is all about the new trend of maximalism. What it isn’t? Simple! But that doesn’t mean it’s difficult to achieve. The maximalism trend for spring 2017 is all about wearing bold colors, patterns and accessories in one outfit. The look is a bit whimsical and hectic. The beauty is that you can choose to be as minimalistic or maximal as you like. In the first example, I’ve combined 2 striped patterns and topped them with an embroidered jacket. (Okay, so essentially a third pattern.) The easiest way to combine patterns is [..] read more
