cargo pants + pumps

Sometimes the most unusual combinations make for the cutest look + a new pair of shoes any turn any outfit new again! I got these cargo pants from Buckle a few years back and won the oversized Oakley tee at an Oakley event. The pumps are from Go Jane and they are the newest item photographed, besides the NYX matte lip I am wearing.

Mixing the Old with the New

I think being able to keep older pieces in tack and mix and match them with your newer items start with what you buy and how you shop. Here are a few guidelines I always follow when shopping:

1. I tend to shop for pieces versus outfits, I think when you shop for “outfits” you may be more tempted to buy something that looks good for that outfit, but not something that you would wear again and again.

2. Splurge for timeless pieces, save on trend items. A few of my favorite trend item stores are Forever21, GoJane, and SheInside.

3. Stay within your color range. It’s okay to have go to colors that you know complement your skin tone ad that you will always want to wear. You can still step outside of your comfort zone with lipstick, heels, and accessories.
