Camo Pants That Are Worth Repeating

Atlanta personal stylist, Top Atlanta blogger, Camo street style

Once upon a time there was a young lady (me) who would have never been caught wearing something twice, especially if the look was captured on the gram.  I mean, where day do dat at (in my slang voice, cause I'm cool like that)?  But then one day this young lady woke up and realized that that was the most craziest thing ever.  She understood that she was being uppity for no good reason and remembered she didn't have the closet of Rihanna.  After all what sense did it make to buy something I obviously liked only to wear it once?  Cray, right?

After I got over the "Repeat Outfit Offender" syndrome, I gained a better appreciation for my clothes and became more focused on making the most of my wardrobe.  While I very rarely repeat a look, I do wear items over and over.  I've said this before and I'll say it again for the people in the back.  When considering adding pieces to your wardrobe, before you buy it, envision at least 3-4 different ways to style that item with pieces you already have in your closet.  The goal is to maximize your wardrobes full potential, not to become a hoarder.  Maximizing your wardrobe means mixing and matching pieces that you already have to create different looks.  

Take these camo pants for instance.  This look is my 8th (or 9th) time styling these fatigues and each time I've replaced one or two pieces from the previous look to create a whole other outfit. Here are two good examples of the rare occasions when I've worn AND been photographed in the same look; the difference between the two is for the first look, I wore floral print block heels and paired it with a mixed print clutch.  Yet for the second look, I opted for flatform shoes and accessorized with a leopard print belt.  You see that with only a few subtle changes, you can create different looks with pieces you already have.  So you know I have to ask, which look is your fave?

Just in case you're curious about the other ways I've styled these pants >>> Go HERE!!!  And last but not least, you can follow my style journey on Instagram -- @thestyleklazit.

For starters thrifting is magical and I owe it to my cousin who introduced me to the world of resale shopping many years ago.  It wasn't until I got older that I really started to appreciate all that thrifting had to offer.  I'm pretty sure that even after I became a millionaire, I'm still going to find my way to a thrift shop.

A few months ago (while co-hosting a thrift shopping event with Keren of Thrifting Atlanta) I'm walking around perusing the rows of varies vendors, telling myself - girl you better not go over your $50 budget.  For the most part my shopping budget is between $50 - $100 dollars.  Now if I see something that I "have to have" and I've reached my limit, I'll ask the Mr. for a "small" contribution.

Let me get back on track here.... so I walk past this one particular clothes vendor (Mobile Style Stop Boutique) and notice this colorful shiny garment hanging on the rack.  I approach the garment, but paused as it was in the XL section.  Bomber!  Guys, can you believe I actually walked away from it?!?! I didn't even bother trying it on (which btw, you should always do a try-on session).

Somehow I ended up back at the rack and for the heck of it, tried it on..................  It fit!!! OMG it fit!!!! I couldn't believe my luck.  Mind you I'd seen this same duster last year selling for a lot more that what I'd paid for mine.  After doing the most by sashaying around the event, I quickly paid for my favorite piece.  This duster cost me half my budget, yet it was totally worth it.  Afterwards I went back to telling myself - girl you better not go over your new budget of $25, lol.  

What makes this piece so amazing is that it has pockets.  I know! I know!  Pockets just make everything else in the world bearable.  Most people would have probably worn something black, but instead of going dark, I decided on an all white approach.  Pairing my fave pair of JustFab white distressed jeans (currently sold out, but these white jeans from H&M are super cute) with this Adidas top (worn HERE + similar option) was the perfect combo of both street and chic.  S/o to my friend for reminding me that I had these criss-crossed gold mules from ShoeDazzle (sorry ya'll they are sold out in all 3 colors) adding the right amount of cute this look needed.  

I hope this look inspires you to think a little outside the box.  Even if you don't have a sequin duster, a colorful blazer or kimono would work equally as well.  But if you do want one, I've found a few sequin duster's for you to consider.

What I'm Wearing To The World Natural Hair Show + I'm Teaching A Thrift Style Workshop

World Natural Hair Show, Top Atlanta blogger

Happy Fabulous Friday people!  I am so ready for this weekend.  Can you guess why?  I gave a little hint in the title of this post.  Tomorrow is THE DAY that I get to facilitate a thrifting workshop at the 21st World Natural Hair Show presented by Taliah Waajid

My style session is tomorrow from 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm in Classroom: Italian 1-2 (tickets).  I think because I'm so hype about it that I'm not even nervous (at least not yet).  I actually feel really good about the workshop tomorrow.  I still can't believe it.  This is the biggest platform I've been on so far.  And I'm so grateful that God allowed somebody to think about me for this opportunity.  All smiles as I write this post!!!!!! 

You already know that my look has to be bang'n right?  And of course it has to be thrifted, duh!  I've been thinking about what to wear every since I got the call.  And after going back and forth with myself, I decided to repeat a look that I absolutely loved the first time I wore it.  The first time I wore this look was at Atlanta designer Natt Taylor's pop up shop a few weeks ago. 

And to think a couple of years ago I would never be caught wearing the same thing twice. Girl what?!?!  Especially if I got photographed in a look.  No ma'am, Pam!  But baby, I'll be 40 in a few weeks and things like not repeating an outfit is cray cray!.  I'm at a place now where I don't even care anymore.  Which is why I'll be wearing this exact look tomorrow.  The only thing I'm changing is my undergarments and my hair will probably be different.  

My favorite part of this look is the bright yellow ruffle skirt I picked up from vintage shop Ecologie in Kennesaw, GA (It's a bit of a drive, but it's worth it).  My skirt is thrifted, however this ASOS satin pleated midi skirt with hanky hem is super dope and so cute and you should get it.  Guys, I've said it once and I'll say it again, Zara is the real MVP when it comes to shoes.  I would suggest not waiting to get a shoe you really like, their inventory goes quick.  These white brogues are no longer available. 

Well style lover's do me a fave... Send up a prayer that all goes well tomorrow and that something awesome comes from the experience.  Appreciate it and ttyl!

White Blazer + Adidas Joggers

Heeeyyyyy!!!  Where have I been?  Chile, I've been out here trying to get my life...  I told y'all that some great things were about to pop off and I'm making sure that I'm in position.  So what have you been up to?  There's so much I want to tell you, but in due time; don't want my haters messing things up for me.  Sooo...

Are you familiar with the athleisure trend?  It's basically a mixture of leisurewear with sportswear.  And the cool thing is, it's a super easy look to pull off.  Instead of wearing a hoodie and sneakers, for my look I opt'd for a blazer and heels.  

Here are a few suggestions that will help you pull off this look successfully.  

DO mix and match.  A blazer, which should be a staple in your wardrobe, screams chic and sophistication.  Finishing off your look with a sneaker would completely be a game changer.  Giving your look edge appeal.  See

DO accessorize.  Just because you're wearing athletic gear doesn't mean you have to look like you're headed straight to the gym.  More than likely you aren't anyways, oops lol!  Accessories are like herbs and spices.  They give zest and zing to an outfit.   

DON'T forget to be creative.  Take one of your fave screen T's, pair it with a cute pencil or fitted skirt and complete your look with the cutest pair of pumps you have.    

What do you think about this trend?  Are you a fan?  Drop a line below, lets chat about it.
