How To Rock In Mix Match Prints

Atlanta Personal Stylist, Top Atlanta Blogger

Mixing prints is one of my favorite all time style go-to's.  At this point, I can do it with my eyes closed.  However, it can be a little tricky to pull off if you're not careful.  But ya girl is sorta a pro at mixing prints.  Go see what I'm talking about HERE, HERE & HERE.  

One to the key factors when mixing prints is to make sure the colors compliment each other.  Like in today's looks which is really simple.  Everybody knows that red, black and white go together.  I mean, anytime you see black and white paired together, the pop of color is more than likely red. 

I happened upon this red striped poplin shirt from H&M while out shopping for my client.  I tell ya, being a personal stylist with a shopping addiction can't be a good thing right?  Wrong!  I didn't have to think twice about getting this top because a) it was on sale and b) it's been on my to-get list to add more printed/patterned tops to my wardrobe.  I love this shirt and have but it's almost sold out, however, Asos has a cute little red shirt that works or this short sleeved stripe shirt from Forever 21 is just as cute, especially for spring/summer temps 

*Singing... If You Don't Know Me By Now.... You're not a loyal Style Kläzit fan if you don't know that black and white anything is my absolute fave.  Which is why ordering these black and white polka dot jeans from Forever 21 was a must.  The downside is that if you'r short like me (5') they will be a little on the long size and they are high waist.  I tend to shy away from wearing anything that has my mom gut on full display.  And if I had tried them on prior to shooting this look, I would have cut the hem (which I ended up doing after the fact).  I'm thinking about getting these polka dots pants, that's more my style.  

Ladies and Gents, boys and girls!  If you'll focus your attention to these dope contrasting-coloured sneakers from Zara.  Y'all Zara is like my all time favorite place to shop for shoes.   If you're looking for funky and unique footwear, head to Zara.  Not only are these sneakers dope, they are comfortable and they were reasonably priced.  Another pair of Zara shoes that I'm in love with are these black kitten heel booties.  Oh, and these two-tone metallic oxfords with detachable tassels are like everything.

Anywho, I hope your Monday is off to a great start and that your week is full of style and grace.  And if you have any questions about mixing prints, ask away in the comments!

Friday Vibe in Floral + Plaid

Atlanta Top Blogger, Atlanta Black Blogger, Top Style Blogger

Ladies and Gentleman, the moment we’ve all been waiting for… It’s Friday!  And once again I have a full weekend or a full Saturday at least.  Saturday morning starts with a much needed barber appointment, later a birthday party and then a blog shoot.  All of this with my 8 year old in tow.  Speaking of my 8 year old, when I picked him up from school yesterday he informed me that has a girlfriend now.  He actually wrote a little love note asking if she’d be his girlfriend.  She said yes!

Most people are familiar with casual Friday if you work in Corp America.  This is, in most cases, the one day of the week where you get to ditch the office appropriate business attire and wear something less dress codie (I just made that up).  And depending on your offices’ dress code policy, today’s look is for sure casual Friday worthy.

For starters, my shirt is actually from the men’s section at the thrift store.  I almost didn’t get it, but after mentally putting together a few outfits; adding this top to my wardrobe was a must.  Now that we’re heading into Fall/Winter, over-sized tops or boyfriend shirt are perfect for layering.

This denim skirt is awesomely amazing.  Its length is what I’m most excited about.  Nowadays, skirts are either super short or really long.  But this skirt would def be a proper length for the office.  And depending on how strict your office dress code policy is, wearing a distress skirt may be out of compliance; however you can still pull off this look with non-distressed denim skirt.

Being the extra style crazed individual that I am, a solid pair of booties just wouldn’t do.  Plus I couldn’t wait to pull out these Floral Brocade Mid-Calf Booties from Charlotte Russe (sadly they’re no longer available).  One rule to mixing prints is to pick two different prints that share the same colors. 

Finishing off the look, I thought this red mini backpack from Forever 21 (the one I have is not available online) was the perfect pop of color and these mirrored sunglasses from Boga Boga to make me look uber cool (wink).  In the real world, I’d have to wear a similar version of this look to work.  I think it may be frowned upon if I walk into the office with my two lady friends exposed and a distress skirt. 

Is this look something you’d wear?

How To Wear Pink In The Fall

Melodie Stewart, The Style klazit, asos metallic jacquard skirt, metallic pink sneakers, atlanta style blogger

The weather outside is still kinda toasty and while I'm more than excited for Fall fashion, I'm still basking in these Spring-like temp's.  So by now I'm sure you're starting to hear all about transitioning your spring/summer wardrobe into fall.  I'm here for all of it.    

Melodie Stewart, The Style klazit, asos metallic jacquard skirt, metallic pink sneakers, atlanta style blogger

Does this mean that you have to put away your lively bright spring colors?  Of course not!  It just means that you make the color cold (or cooler) weather friendly.  Take today's outfit post for example.  To play down the bright pink hue of these metallic shoes, I wore this dark metallic jacquard print ruffle skirt from Asos.

I tossed around the idea of ordering this skirt because 1. it has ruffles, which only girly girls wear ruffles, right?  2. I wanted to get it in a size 8 (which was sold out), but I had to get the six instead.  Let me just say that the next time I wear this skirt, I would have needed to fast at least 24 hours before.

Having all fall and winter to wear this skirt again, the first look I wanted to keep fairly simple.  Opting for a plain white button down shirt this gave the skirt all the attention it deserved.  And I rolled up the sleeves, because rolled up sleeves are what all the cool people are doing -- wink!  

When considering wearing bright colors in the fall/winter months.  Think about the fabrics.  This skirt with some tights and a blazer or sweater would be great once the temperatures drop.  I could also go bolder and just mix the shoes or the skirt with a neutral or dark color for balance.  So there you have it!

Kläzit Raid - Shop The Bloggers Closet || Event Recap

Melodie Stewart, The Style Klazit, Bloggers Closet, Klazit Raid, Atlanta style blogger, Silver metallic skirt, Zara silver brogues

Guess what y'all?! I got the pics back from my Kläzit Raid!  During the shopping event I was so wired, I saw how everything looked.  I just couldn't get into the event like I wanted to.  

Did you catch my initial recap?  Read for yourself (here), how I almost lost it.  I knew I was going to be moving about so I wanted to wear something comfortable yet cute.  I had planned on wearing a jumpsuit with these BANGING silver brogues from Zara, but because I didn't try on the suit at the store, I didn't realize it was too small.  

As a result, I ended up wearing this look.  The look didn't quite turn out the way I'd hoped, but I didn't have time to dwell over it.  It had to work.  

Below you will find a few pics from the event.  The video is coming soon, so stay tuned.   

Aaaannndddd, I created a Facebook group as an extension of the event.  Join here

Blue Trench Coat + Metallic Mini Backpack

Melodie Stewart, The Style Klazit, Atlanta style blogger, Blue trench coat, white shirt dress, Shoedazzle, Metallic Backpack, Atlanta Stylist

Roses are red violets are blue, I'm not wearing red and neither should you!  Anybody else besides me NOT ready for Valentine's?  How could I, a married woman who's madly in love with my husband, not be ready for the day of looovveee?  I don't have an answer for you.  But what I can tell you is that I won't be wearing red. I really don't have to wear red to prove my love.  So my V-day outfit is this little number here.  It's sexy and chic with a smidge of edge.  And since the weather here in Atlanta is unpredictable I didn't want to be caught out in the elements trying to be cute thus this lively blue trench.  So guys the moral of the story is to have fun and dress really cute tomorrow.

Windowpane Print + Loafers

Melodie Stewart, The Style Klazit, Atlanta style blogger, Atlanta wardrobe stylist, windowpane print pants street style, black loafers street style, Atlanta street style

Hello my name is Melodie and I am a shoeaholic.  I purchase at least 2-5 pair of shoes a month.  My shoe addiction is so bad that this is my first time wearing these patent loafers from JustFab.  Man, can you believe that I actually bought these shoes in 2015!  I'm sure you'd like to know what took me so long to wear them.  Well I forgot I had them.  Anywho, I'm so glad I found them because they are a perfect fit this look.  These windowpane print crop pants are part of a two-piece suit from Target, but I decided to break up the suit and pair the pants with a classic white button shirt, a closet staple and this fuzzy burgundy cardigan.  The two-tone chain was added at the last minute because I realized the outfit was plain looking without it.  I went with a grey handbag, because your bag doesn't have to match it just has to work with the overall feel of your look.  I like that this outfit is great for the office.  Would you were this to work?  Let me know below...

Fatigues + Red Boots

Melodie Stewart, The Style Klazit, Atlanta style blogger, Atlanta stylist, Atlanta street fashion

Fashion is a statement not style.  Style is a reflection of your attitude and your personality.  What I like (love) about my personal style is that it's versatile and it reflects how I feel on any given day.  Today I'm feeling a little badd - wink!  I've had these fatigue pants for a couple years and each time I wear them I create a different look - see here, here & here.  I think off all the looks, I like this one the best.  I diy'd the hoodie by adding left over jewels from my NYE look (here) and a few beads from a pearl necklace I had.  I knew I wanted to pair these red boots but I went back and forth with myself about the red frames.  Adding the black moto just made me superbad, lol.  What do you think?  What does your badd outfit look like?

Men's Inspiration + Silver Oxfords

Melodie Stewart, The Style Klazit, Atlanta style blogger, Atlanta stylist, Men's inspired look

Have you ever stood in your closet and asked yourself "What Am I Going To Wear?" Can I tell you this is my question most mornings?  Whenever I'm indecisive about what to wear, I start from the bottom.  Since I have a fairly decent shoe collection, I head to my shoe closet and let the shoes decide for me.  So the silver oxfords decided to make an appearance.  What I love most about these shoes is that they have the ability to completely change the style of anything I wear with them.  Today I'm biting from the guys in this men's inspired look.  I love a good andro look every now and again.  If you got my 30 Day Outfit Guide, you'll see I talk about the power of a blazer.  I could have stopped with the sweater but the blazer is what brought the entire look together.  

What's your method for pulling a look together when you're clueless about what to wear?

Metallic Skirt + Cigarbox / Holiday Lookbook - Style 2

Melodie Stewart, The Style Klazit, Atlanta style blogger, Atlanta wardrobe stylist

Your holiday fashion wardrobe isn't complete without the shimmer and glimmer of metallic's.  While this isn't a new trend, almost everybody is getting into it one way or another.  My bling-wear consist of a semi-monochromatic silver sweatshirt and skirt combo.  Layered with a burgundy turtleneck for a splash of color.  This look is perfect for those of us who aren't a fan of party dresses during the cold months.  Picked a pair of floral print crew socks to compliment these dope silver metallic oxfords for a downtown chic look.  How cute is this thrifted cigarbox handbag?

Lace Skirt + Adidas Sneakers

Melodie Stewart, The Style Klazit, Atlanta style blogger, Athleisure, Adidas, Atlanta stylist 

On days when I kinda want to dress up but then not really, I tend to lean towards the athleisure look.  It functional, yet fashionable.  Gone are the days where sneakers are meant for the gym only.  I decided to dress up my sneakers with this black lace skirt from Plato's Closet, but you can get one from here or here.  Denim/chambray tops should be a staple in your closet.  Actually you should really have more than one, hint-hint.  Besides the thrift store, you can pick one or two up from Old Navy or Forever21.  I added this neon yellow handbag (thrifted) just for the heck of it, lol.  But really accessories just make things better!  Have you given this look a try?  What's your opinion on this trend?

Distressed Denim + Cream Blazer

Melodie Stewart, The Style Klazit, Atlanta Style Blogger, Distressed Denim, Cream Blazer

Wow!  Can you believe that it's October and we only have 74 days left until 2017!  This year has been filled with a lot of twists and turns, but I'm determined to finish this year strong.  So a few months ago, I mentioned that some good things were about to happen to me.  Little did I know that before the end of the year I'd be a first time homeowner.  This house was tailor made for me as it comes with a bonus room that's big enough for me to house all my shoes, clothes and space for my future home office.  

My two fave season's are spring and fall.  Fall because I get to break out all the blazers I've thrifted over the summer.  Blazer are my go to as they can dress up or down almost any look.  Today I paired this cream blazer with a T and some distressed jeans.  Such a effortless outfit to pull together on those days when you want to be causal but cute at the same time.

When I look back over my style history, I've changed.  But that's the beauty of style.  "Fashion you can buy, but style you possess. The key to style is learning who you are, which takes years. There's no how-to road map to style. It's about self expression and, above all, attitude." - Iris Apfel

This is vacation week for me and my fam.  We usually take a family vaca every year, but this year my parents, my brother and his fam and both my sister's and their family's will soak up the sun in Florida.  Aaanndd my 20 year old decided she wanted to hang as well; but I hope she leaves her attitude in Georgia because I'm not here for it!!! Something else that's new this time around is... I actually finished packing for hubs, baby boy and myself all before 12:30 am.  Normally I'm not finished packing until around 4:00 am the morning of the trip.  My wardrobe for this trip is a little different.  Most of what I packed are things my husbands likes but I never wear.  You can catch me on IG and maybe Snapchat for my #ootd's.
