Say Hello to My Styled Life

I'm sure some of you are aware that there haven't been any recent posts here on this blog the past few months and I kept meaning to explain why, but time got away from me! Well the wait is now over and I'm excited to share that back in January I decided to launch a new blog called My Styled Life.   

While I loved this blog and it taught me so much, over time it became more about fashion than beauty. Don't get me wrong, I still love all things makeup, but I wanted a new blog that aligned more with my current interests! That led to the creation of My Styled Life, a life & style blog where I share my belief that everyday is an opportunity to be styled. 

All further posts will be on My Styled Life, so I hope that you join me on this new journey and I thank all of you for your continued support! Be sure to enter your email in the sidebar on my new blog to stay updated when I write new posts!

Stylish Layering Tips

It has seriously been so cold lately...okay I will admit that my definition of cold probably isn't the same as yours, #californiagirl, but with the chilly weather in mind, today I'm sharing my tips on how to layer your clothing stylishly.

1. Rock a Graphic Tee - When I layer I love being able to see a bit of every layer, but when you see the first layer and it's plain, it can be kind of boring. To solve this dilemma, I love wearing a graphic tee as my first layer. I think it makes a look more fun and it's the perfect way to express your personality. The one I have on has different sayings about the ocean. Totally appropriate right?! 

2. Go for a Pop of Color - When I wear a bunch of layers together that are all in the same neutral color palette, I like to add some sort of pop of color to the look to mix things up. For this outfit, that color was the neon orange on the edge of the jacket. In the past, I've incorporated color through accessories such as a maroon-colored beanie or even a bold berry lip. 

3. Mix up Prints - I think that part of the fun in layering is getting to pair different prints together. For this look, I accomplished this by wearing a striped scarf and a plaid flannel! While I chose to mix prints through using an accessory, you could keep it simple and just wear two different printed tops/sweaters.

I hope these three tips help! Thanks for reading!
