Subtle mixing




Sunnies: Gucci | Chambray: Old Navy (optionoption) | Bracelet: Express (option) | Watch: Kate Spade (option, love this)  | Belt: ExpressBag: Kate Spade | Bottoms: Express (option)  | Shoes: Sam Edelman

I've been wanting to try the denim on denim trend - I've liked it on other people, but wasn't sure if I could pull it off as well. As my way of easing into this, I decided to pair this dotted chambray top with these jeans which have a very, very subtle pinstripe to them. This makes me feel more like the focus is on pattern mixing vs. just denim on denim. At least that's what I tell myself. Of course I had to complete the Carylee formula by adding a pop of color plus leopard print. I may have gone just a teeny bit overboard with the leopard bands on my wrist, waist, and feet, but meh, I did it anyway because I can!

  3. You know, I always feel I can't wear my leopard belt and leopard sandals at the same time because I hear the fashion blogging community going, "TOO MATCHY MATCHY." But when I see it on you, they are such teeny tiny doses that it doesn't look overdone to me at all. The whole look is great, and I see your watch. :)

  7. I am all for the denim-on-denim look - always. I have a very similar dotted chambray on as I type this. And loving the zippers on those jeans. Like the side zippers on my denim shorts today. Last but not least another great pair of wedges.

    Welcome by and check out the post today when you have a chance. <3 Ada,

  8. You look so cute. I struggle figuring out what to put together to wear so I love to read fashion blogs. I'm not big into fashion- jeans and a tshirt is just fine with me.
