A Winter Hodge-Podge

Every so often I am feeling a bunch of styles at once.  I want to be girly and edgy, go fitted and flared, bright and neutral.  Today was obviously one of those days.  I have this awesome tight fitted cosmic dress from ASOS that I wanted to wear, but I wasn't feeling the all over body con fit so I paired it with a  blue denim mini skirt and aztec print beaded belt.  For a pop of color I added my bright pink (almost orange) H&M tights and layered a light pink lace cardi jacket overtop.  There's a lot going on here but I think it really ended up looking exactly how I was feeling today- funky, eclectic and well- a little bit of everything!

Headband and Bag: Urban outfitters, Cardigan, tights, beetle necklace and skirt: H&M, shoes: payless Bracelets and rings: all over the place

It is really cold in Delaware today!  I was excited to meet with a  friend for lunch whom I used to work with- she just got a job with TOMS shoes (so exciting!) and we were looking through catalogues for our fall preorder for Clothes in the Past Lane, they're going to be pretty amazing! ;)
Then I drug my husband outside as it started to snow...


After only spending a few minutes outside the flurries started to get pretty heavy so I was ready to put my coat back on and head back to the apartment ;)
The rest of the day has been a lot of relaxing.  Usually I try to pack a million things in to my Saturday since it is usually one of my two days off a week, but it felt really nice to just lay back and frolic the time away with Daniel.  I think I needed that...

Do you ever mix several styles together and what themes do you like to mix??  


Thank you to everyone who submitted to the GIVEAWAY below! I had some much fun styling my socks with different outfits and I know that the winner will too!

  3. You look so cute in your mixed style outfit. I really love your lace jacket and cool peacock feather headband. I get those urges to wear a bunch of styles at once too. One of my favorite style mixes is girly and edgy.

  10. How cute! I feel like throwing together a mosh posh of things every once in a while. I love how this looks altogether. I've been in the market for a good lace cardigan for a while but haven't found one. Wah!
    The mini skirt if my fave from this outfit. I've been into denim for a while now.

    1. Aw thanks Pati, I did notice that you like denim, I love accenting with it from time to time but I don't own any blue jeans...haha! I do have a pair of like acid wash jeggings though, (do those count)?? haha. Thanks for your sweet comments :) And you will probably see lace cardis like this come out more and more this spring.
