Fashion Friday: Lace, Leopard & Linen - Oh My!


Today was a little nerve racking for me to say the least. Instead of ensuring my outfit matched completey....shades, textures and styles... I went ahead and colored outside the lines. I pulled my outfit together last night as Sammy doesnt work on Friday's and I didnt want to wake him that early to choose an outfit {as we all know this something can be quite a task}. Laying it out last night, didnt help any as I couldnt wrap my head around the concept of not matching. Grey Lace, Black Pencil Skirt, Linen Bomber Style Jacket and Leopard Tights... It really sounds like a mish-mash of signature pieces, however I asked the husband what he thought this morning before I darted out the door and he said ... Oh La La, I loves its. So, I walk with a swagger today as I know that even though Im wearing a whole lotta smish.... my husband will always wanna "smush" {thanks jersey shore for making the word do damn classy}.

HAIR

Step 1: Rinsed with Hot Water
Step 2: Conditioned with Pantene Pro-V Conditioner
Step 3: Rinsed with COLD Water {as I have mentioned before, this seals in all the goodness}
Step 4: Towel Dry and "finger" comb through Pantene Pro-V Conditioner {same as what I used in the shower}
Step 5: Air Dry

*I will sometimes use the same conditioner in the shower that I will to style it. I find that Pantene is the perfect weight to keep my hair from drying and FUZZING into an Afro. So its my go to Conditioner for Leave-In and Wash out no doubt. Unless someone shows me otherwise I will always use this product.

Unexpectedly stylish. I agree that it would have been a bit stressful putting the mis-matchy-ness all together. You rocked it!

Hey Ladies! Thanks for all your lovely comments... expecially after the crazy combo - I wasnt sure if I actually pulled it off!

aanjsmom: I am sure you could pull 'er off - If I can, You can! Pantene should hire me - your right! I am impressed as my hair is extremely curly {as you see} usually I have to use 4 and 5 products to make it do what I want.

Ife: your right - matching is over-rated! I shall color outside the lines more often!

Andrea: It was quite a mess indeed. trying to get on an outfit that DOESNT Traditonaly match without a full length mirror. I dont know if that HELPED or HINDERED the whole mind/body comfort zone... Glad you liked it!

Shanalisa: Brandsaver.ca is my guilty pleasure! Ha Ha Ha thanks for the reminder - need to go get my coupons!

XOXO
Yours Truly
