What to Wear to Work: Mixed Patterns

Some of us may be nervous to mix patterns but it is time to stop being scared. I am from the Garanimals era, where people seem to like for everything to match from head to toe but the more I see mixed patterns, the more I love them!

My girl, Jacki rocked the mix patterns to work this week and I had to feature her on the blog!

The 2 patterns are similar, in the fact that they are both floral prints but still very different.

I would also like to welcome Miss Jacki to the natural hair club – She looks simply beautiful with the short cut she is rocking.

Do you like to mix patterns? Or are you scared?

To Ugg or not to Ugg

IMG_0644To wear Uggs or not – This has come up in conversation between myself and my girlfriends lately. Is it still fashionable to wear Uggs? Was it ever fashionable to wear Uggs? Is it more about the comfort than the style? How should you wear Uggs? We discussed all of these things and since I had never owned a pair of Uggs, I thought it would be a great time to try them out and give my 2 cents on the Australian boots.

First I want to know – Do you wear Uggs?

So I was told that I would fall in love as soon as I slid my feet into my Uggs – this did not happen. They were actually a bit uncomfortable at first, especially where the stitching went across my the top of my foot. But after wearing them for about 30 minutes it was like someone turned on the comfortable switch. I was also told that the Uggs would conform to my foot and indeed they did and it felt like heaven!  The Uggs I bought were, of course the most flashy Uggs I could find as I am turning into my Mom and love all things that shine and glitter!  My next pair will not be quite as flashy but more something that can be worn anytime.

So to answer my own questions:

Is it still fashionable to wear Uggs? I think so. Celebrities wear them all of the time!

Is it more about the comfort than the style – ABSOLUTELY! we all know that Uggs are not the most stylish-looking boots and can sometimes look like they have no shape at all – but it is all about the outfit you pair them with!

So, hince my last question – how should you wear Uggs? Here are some great examples:

My conclusion: I definitely love the comfort of Uggs and will be purchasing another pair,
