It has been so hot here the last week or so and wearing anything but dresses or shorts is basically the worst. I am always on the hunt for work appropriate shorts that I can wear during the week and on the weekends and love adding fun shorts to my wardrobe. So I went on the hunt for some adorable shorts that are perfect from work to weekend! Hope everyone is having a great week!

So until next time... Live Stylishly

Stylish Outfit: Summertime Print Mixing

One of my favorite trends that I have yet to try until today is print mixing. I love anything printed and while sometimes mixing prints together can go all wrong, in some cases they can go all right! When one of my SCBS members came to me and said they wanted the monthly linkup topic to be print mixing I was so excited to finally get to try out the trend. I did a bit of research to make sure I paired the right prints together and here are the top four things I learned from my girls over at Lauren Conrad's blog and various other sites I referenced before putting this look together!

Stylish Rules for Mixing Prints:
**The most important thing I learned is not to figure out what matches per say but to figure out what pairs well together.**
1. Start with a bold piece then use that as your jumping off point for the entire outfit.
2. The easiest ways to mix prints is mixing polka dots and stripes if you are a little weary of mixing prints together at first.
3. Choosing a color family will make pairing much easier (I didn't necessarily do this in my print mixing, but its a good tip!)
4. Don't Over Accessorize this can ruin you look! Keep it simple since the prints are enough!

Okay so now that you know some of the "rules" persay I decided to take a loud tribal print pant and pair it with an all over star silk tank. Normally I would just wear a white tee or v neck with these pants but I love how this top brings out the color in the pants and doesn't overwhelm you either. I kept my accessories simple of course with just a few solid bracelets and a red simple clutch. Voila! It was so much easier and fun to print mix than I had thought! 
Top: H&M (similar) // Pants: Forever 21 // Flats: Old Navy (almost identical) // Clutch: c/o Susu Handbags // Watch: c/o Caravelle // Necklace: BaubleBar (similar)

Now I want to hear from all of you! What are your favorite prints to mix and match together!? Don't forget to stop by SoCal Blogger Society and see how the members interpreted the print mixing topic! Thanks to my best Cassie for shooting these pics!

So until next time.. Live Stylishly

July Stylish Girl of the Month: Kate Hudson

When I sat down to write this month's stylish girl of the month like most months I tried to think of whom I haven't already picked and when this person's name came to mind I was shocked I had not picked her before (correct me if I am wrong but I looked in my archives and could not find her!) have been a fan of Kate Hudson from back to Almost Famous but the movie that really showed me Kate was "How To Lose A Guy In Ten Days" If you know me, you know thats one of my all time favorite movies! Kate Hudson has a unique and envious style that just makes you want to be her! I even went on the hunt for that yellow dress seen in the movie to wear to my prom. (I went with a different dress but I did love the replica I found!) Kate basically started the whole "hippie" trend in my opinion and to this day still rocks it so perfectly. See below why Kate is the perfect pick for July's Stylish Girl of the Month!

From left to right:
1. You might remember seeing this dress on my best dressed list from my Oscar recap, but this Atelier Versace gown is absolutely stunning on Kate!
2. I don't think there is a color Kate can't wear and this blue Reem Acra gown is no exception!
3. Even off the red carpet, Kate is poised and chic in this Wilt Long Sleeve Pullover and Goldsign Jeans!
4. This yellow Emilio Pucci top and white mini skirt are to die for!
5. Kate shows she can rock anything including this Prive gown.
6. This Zuhair Murad gown is absolutely stunning and Kate wears it impeccably!

Stylish Color Lovin: Purple

Stylishly Purple
Clockwise
1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // // 6

The other day I caught myself having a color obsession all at once. I had purple nails, a purple phone case, a purple purse, purple toes and even my water bottle was purple and I realized I have an addiction to the color purple. Ever since I was little I have loved being girl and purple and pink have always been colors I gravitated towards. Growing up my room was purple and I always went for the purples in stores. Lately I have even been wanting to go with the mermaid look and dye parts of my hair purple. I decided that if you love a color then keep on lovin' it so I rounded up some purple items that I am lusting over on this Wednesday! What colors do you notice yourself wearing over and over again?
So until next time.. Live Stylishly
