Lay & Mix it up!

posted by on 2012.01.08, under Fashion Tutorials

I’ve always loved the idea of layering but living in southern California  i’m always limited to so many layers I can wear! (2 days ago it was in the 80′s in LA….seriously hottest winter ever!!!) I created this tutorial for all of you who love that layered look but cant {physically} afford to unless ur willing to risk a heatstroke! haha. Also I just got back from my travels in asia where it was freeeeeeeeeeeezzzzzing and I {finally} got the chance to play with all those layers (and btw lived in my UNIQLO heat tech leggings there). So no matter what side of the world you are at or what climate temperature you may be experiencing I hope you can find a little LAY & MIX inspo here!

Im sure some of you can relate but lately with those Oh So Comfy leggings back into style..i have put my jeans on the back burner.I mean c’mon nothing beats an oversized shirt with a pair of stretchy leggings, right?…… ummmm WRONG! I’m here to tell you its time to kiss your lovely leggings so-long & goodbye (le sigh). and WHY HELLLLLLLO jeans and may I add with tons of stretch? Michelle Phan and I recently collaborated with Hautelook to show you gals how versatile jeans can be. A pair of good fit jeans can do wonders to your wardrobe, your ‘tude (attitude), legs, and buttocks!

In my everyday wardrobe I always try to mix casual & dressier pieces together to create a well balanced outfit…and Im ALLL ABOUT mixing highs & lows together.
