3 Ways To Wear: A Floral & Camo Mix


Hello! Do recognize a pattern with my Style Six Fashion posts? Coincidentally, I'm featuring "3 Ways To Wear..." every other week. Do you enjoy this or should I stick to one look per post? I'd love to hear your thoughts. ;) In the meantime, today's post features three looks with a camo and floral mix. One look I've featured before, but since it inspired my second look I decided to share it again. 

When I purchased these pieces off the clearance rack at a Lucky store in Austin, I wasn't thinking instant outfit. However, once I tried them on together I realized how lucky these finds were.  See what I did there? Wink. Wink. Anyway, the top and bottoms are still available in a few sizes and are linked below. As for the rest of the items, I've linked up similar pieces because I happily shopped my closet! 

That's the whole idea isn't it? Most of us don't have the means to shop for a whole outfit from head to toe. That's where either careful closet planning comes in, or fashion adventures (for the unplanned types - aka me). 

Alright, let's talk about these looks.

Look One: Boho Flair

This was as easy as a cuff bracelet by Victoria Emerson, a kimono, coordinating shoes and a hat! I almost ditched this kimono a month ago. I wasn't wearing it, but while wearing this top and pant combo I noticed the colors were the same! Guess I'll be holding onto it longer.

Fashion Takeaway: When adding to a print mix, go for neutrals but don't be afraid to add texture. The shoes were the same shade of green, but the lace up design added interest without overpowering. I think the same applies to the kimono. Same khaki color in the pants, but the fringe tassels add boho fun. As for the hat, why not pull out a color from my floral mix?


Look 2: Denim Fun

I wore this easy change up to church last Sunday. The red pumps dressed up the look while the denim jacket warded off the air conditioning chill. #Florida

Fashion Takeaway: Is there anything that a denim jacket won't work with?? Also, try on different denim washes and fits. In this case, I preferred a darker wash with the camo pants.
Look 3: Casual Ease

Here's the original look I wore while touring Austin with the Shelly from The Queen In Between. She kindly took these photos for me. Comfy sneakers and a neutral crossbody was all that was required for this warm day. Spring is coming my friends. Get ready!

Fashion Takeaway: Owning a red pair of comfy sneaks added a lot of versatility to my comfortable, but CUTE options. 


Alright my friends, do you have some camo and floral waiting to be paired together? I hope so! Now let's get to the link up...

The Loft Spring 2020 Try-On

Don't you love how local stores are hosting events with snacks, drinks and discounts? Our local Loft even invited a few stylists from the area. These sweet gals were available to assist with style advice to any who desired it.  I haven't tried on clothes in a store for several months so I thought this "Galentine" event was the perfect time to go!  I tried on so many tops, I knew a post was coming so join me for the fashion link up and a few of my LOFT spring favorites!

Jill at Doused in Pink recently styled her red pants so cutely, so when I saw this pair I had to try them. Little did I know how many colors I would end up pairing them with! So, without further ado, let's get started.

OH My Heart!
Since Valentine's Day is Friday why not start with this adorable heart print ruffle top?

From Hearts to Floral
This sweatshirt was soft and gathered at the waist. Two thumbs up for this one!
Mixed Media Plaid
I loved the fit, color and cutesy style of this top. Oh Florida why do you get hot so quickly?? But, I will say that this top inspired a layering look that I will be sharing on Instagram soon! 
Striped Sweater
Sweet Giuliana from Health_Fashion_And_More and I talked about our favorites, making the fitting room all the more fun. Side note: She is killing it on Instagram, so I'll be taking notes from her!
Duster Cardigan
This cardigan was soft and hung just right. Again, Florida. But maybe I need it for traveling?
Fringe Striped Sweater
I thought this one was fun, but could do without it.
Puffed Sleeve
This is cotton but doesn't look like it. It's not ultra soft, but not uncomfortable either. I want.
Bright Color Fun
This "Bobble Pointelle" sweater is bringing on the trendy blue hues for the season. I thought I'd douse everyone with color on this combination.

Do you enjoy in-store try ons? If so, what store would you like to see next?

Natural Deodorant: Does It Work?


Wayyyy back in 2005, I began to swap my conventional health and beauty items with products free of chemical fragrances and other ingredients I couldn't pronounce. Of course deodorant was on that list as well and I couldn't wait to try a natural option. In the health store, I walked to a surprisingly small section of shampoos, conditioners and, yup, deodorants. There on the shelf was an attractively packaged stick of apricot scented deodorant.

Once the opportunity arose, I liberally applied the apricot scented deodorant to my underarms. Within an hour, I did a personal sniff test and reapplied. This kept on throughout the day. Eventually the BO smell seemed to be dominated by apricot, so I sought my sister's opinion.
