Hi luvs,

This weeks #deestyles is all about dressing up the basic outfit or what I like to call my uniform, a basic white top and jeans. This is something I typically reach out to when I need to rush out the door but still need to look put together. It’s also a great outfit for those days you don’t know what to wear & don’t we all have those days?

The key to styling basics, is all in the accessories! You can get away with wearing the same outfit and still look different by making a few adjustments. Add some print or color with a coat, scarf, heels, necklace and even a bag and the same outfit has a potential of looking totally different. It really is that simple! Better yet, when choosing a white basic top, you can also choose to pick a couple with detailing & contrasting sleeves or collars to spice up your wardrobe!

Outfit: H&M White basic Shirt (Old, Similar  here & here I also love these with detailed collars here, here, here & here), Skinny Jeans H&M (here, Similar  herehere, here & hereOld), Animal Print Scarf H&M ( Old Similar here & here), Animal Print Heels ASOS New Look (here, Similar here, here & here) ASOS Mini Tote Bag(here, similar here & here)

healthy breakfast

 

My breakfast on a typical day. For the most part my breakfast always consists of eggs and a generous amount of salad.

I was really looking forward to spring, instead we got our first bout of snow last week. On the bright side, the sun came out for a little while.

Hi luvs,

I’m very happy to introduce a new segment on the blog, where every week, I’ll be styling a Wardrobe Essential/Staple/Basic or Trend.  Today’s Trend is Houndstooth. Houndstooth is a classic, timeless and traditional print that has been really popular this winter season. Vintage houndstooth is usually black and white, but designers have put a modern twist to this classic print and now you can enjoy the print in many different colors & sizes. Apart from size and color, this print can be found in many different pieces like outerwear, shoes, bags & scarves…the possibilities are endless.

When wearing houndstooth, you can pair it with black, white, gray or red pieces like I did! For the bold and adventurous go for bright shades of purple, blue, yellow or pink. If you want to do some print mixing, Leopard print is a fabulous choice!

In today’s outfit, I styled houndstooth leggings. The design is striped down on the side, giving the print a modern twist. They also have an elastic waist which I love because it makes them fit perfectly. They are also extremely warm and perfect for the cold weather. Sticking with the black and white theme I paired it with a black tank and blazer. I accessorized with my new favorite color, red, for a pop of color. Featuring my favorite red lip – Ruby Woo, red ankle strap heels & a red quilted bag. This is something you can wear to the office or an evening out for drinks.

Outfit: ASOS  Houndstooth legging Pants (here, also love these here & cute houndstooth skirt here),  H&M Top (old, similar here, here, here), H&M Blazer (old, similar here, here & here), New Look ASOS Red Ankle Strap Heels (here, here & here), New Yorker Red Quilted Bag (old, similar here, here), H&M Gold Link Chain (old, similar here & here), Mac Ruby Woo Lipstick (here)

For more houndstooth inspiration follow  me on Facebook  & check out my houndstooth Pinterest board.

Now I want to see how you style this lovely print, tag me on instagram #deestyles or email me your pictures /a link to one of your posts wearing houndstooth to be featured in the next post & on Social Media.

Got a request? Let me know what to style next, use #deestyles on twitter, leave a comment below or email me @msdeekay2012 (at) gmail (dot) com.

Thanx so much for stopping by ♥,

Much Love & Blessings,
