WHAT I WORE: Ann Taylor: Grey Buttoned-up and Tapered pants I Forever 21: Crazy Cute Love Sweater I H&M: Pointy Platform Heels I Forever 21: Necklace I Target: Lace Stockings & Hat  I Dooney & Bourke: Satchel Bag

Happy Wednesday!! Sorry for not posting last week, I'm totally back and ready to roll for this New Year!!I hope you all had an amazing New Year and staying safe out there :) 

You remember the time, when you were a kid and your mom use to dress you up in an outfit that would be so matchy-matchy. Well, my mom did and she would have me wearing a nice puffy pink dress with so many bows, I think the dress was bow crazy...lol.. She then would pair the dress with a pink cardigan, white stockings, and white Mary-Jane flats.....can't deny it was super cute!

Seriously, you can still dress yourself the same way your mother did when you were a kid. Right now, the new trend is matchy-matchy wearing different shades of the same color. I think that if your not comfortable wearing bold colors in your outfits, the matchy-matchy trend is a good way to make your outfit be simple without trying to be too trendy. I sometimes go really crazy with bold prints and colors that I need a day to tone my outfit down. I'm still experimenting with this trend, hopefully my next post won't be lime green matchy-matchy....:)

  2. I like the trend although I'd have to throw in a pair of red shoes or something because I don't like being too matchy matchy but this turned out great, I love the hat! :)
