Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

If there is one thing I have learned in my years of fashion styling, it is mixing patterns is one of the easiest ways one can “go for bold” with her wardrobe. Sure, it can be a bit daunting; however, here is a really simple formula to get you started–pattern you love + pattern you love + anchoring piece (like a solid top or accessory) = going for bold. TAH DAH! *wink*

From the first professional photo shoot I ever styled to styling my everyday outfits, going for bold is natural for me. When I go for bold with my looks, it is my way of expressing myself through my clothes and accessories. Much like musicians putting twists on songs when they cover them, I take an outfit and add my own twist by boldly mixing patterns.

Now, I am going to show y’all some of my favorite ways I have gone for bold on the blog in the past while you enjoy a cool cover of one of my favorite songs. Enjoy :)
