Last week was undeniably a crazy week; with last-minute preparations for our trip, working full time, packing part-time, and blogging – I felt like I couldn’t quite make ends meet! Now though, I am sitting poolside with a strawberry margarita in hand so the chaos was definitely worth it! Since our days were so bustlingly busy we often skimped out on our meals and after having yogurt for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for two days we decided that we would just head out for a meal instead; I mean, why not start our vacay a little early? Wednesday night after work J & I met up for our little pre-vacay sushi date night out. I decided to go lighter with my colour palette and paired these playfully printed pants with a feminine blouse & lilac nails. Lilac is one of my all-time favourite colours and in my opinion, it completely embodies all that is spring! Today I wanted to share a few of my top tips for styling printed denim so be sure to click through!
1. Pair it With Neutrals: A brightly printed pair of pants calls for a simpler top, which is why I went with this pretty but plain white peplum. While it’s fun to mix prints, sometimes it’s fun to let a printed item be the “star” piece in your outfit.2. Play with Textures: Just because you go with a neutral top doesn’t mean it has to be a boring one! This top has a really unique texture that almost subtly mimics a print, and it adds a lot more interest to this look. 3. Add In Metallics: If you’re still looking for a bit more of a “wow” factor for your look then turn to metallics! A great studded purse or a metallic pair of flats will add a bit more zest to your outfit!
