“Olive you so much.”

There’s one color that I can’t get enough of:  Olive green.  This shade looks good on everybody and looks good in pretty much everything.  Instead of the popular olive bomber jacket we’ve seen everywhere, I opted for something lightweight to tackle Spring temperatures and can be used in the Summer as well:  an olive-green chambray button down.  I’ve gone through a few of these over the years and have worn them over maxi dresses, denim, shorts…you name it.  All you have to do is throw it on to anchor an outfit.  I did a little pop of color with an orange cami because it goes with khaki tones so well.  Since the pieces I have on are a bit on the baggy side, I decided to wear heels for added height (balance is key, ladies!).  And as far as my accessories go, leopard and stripes go hand in hand here (yes, you can mix patterns as long as the colors match!).  Lastly, can’t have a My Style and Grace outfit without sunglasses and these mirrored lovelies are everything.  To my go to shirt this season: Olive you so much ❤

“Neutrals are your friend.”

I’ve always been big on neutrals.  I love the subtleness and the flexibility on being able to interchange several pieces – it ALWAYS works.  It also looks luxurious without looking over the top.  With a simple grey tee from Kit & Ace to start with, (which by the way, the softest shirt I have ever owned. Thanks Kit & Ace!) I was able to build this look by piling more neutrals on top.  The best part is, you can add ANY color from a neutral palette and it simply works.  It’s definitely a no brainer!  If you want to stick with just one color, that’s ok too!  Tip: Just make sure you try mixing different textures and layers to break up the silhouette.  So easy, right?!  Neutrals for the win! ❤

“Mix it up”

Happy Friday everyone!  I wanted to share a casual Friday look with you today by mixing prints and doing a little pattern play!  I like to experiment with different textures and prints when styling my wardrobe because I think it’s fun and exciting!  The one thing that I always try to remember is to match the colors and NOT the patterns.  If you dare to try print on print (for starters) , I would suggest trying monochromatic stripes first because I think they count as solid colors.  Leopard print is a neutral (my personal fave) and it is also a good option to start with!  So easy and you can’t go wrong!  I hope these simple rules will get you guys started and maybe one day you will dare to go for a more bolder look! 🙂  Have fun mixing it up!

Fridays are all about being casual for me, perfect for kicking off the weekend ahead.  I like to dress down, but still look polished and effortless.  This printed shirt dress (and how cute is the bow?) is so versatile and can be styled in many ways!  I am wearing my Senso leopard booties (remember the matching of colors?) because I think brown tones compliment blue hues quite well.  I accessorized this look with a simple black backpack and my favorite Rayban sunnies!  Chic and weekend ready! ❤
