Happy Friday Everyone!!

I posted this outfit on Instagram a few days ago, so I decided to put it up on my blog because something may just surprise you!! We have seen this patch trend from the runways to the streets and on pieces ranging from forever21 to designers such as Stella McCartney, Mira Mikati, Anya Hindmarch, and even Dolce and Gabbana.

Whether you want an artsy or more edgy vibe, the decoration and emoji-style detailing will not let you down. You can wear items completely covered or maybe just have 1 or 2 graphics. Pieces from the designers mentioned above may be a bit expensive for most of us, but that doesn’t mean you can’t join in on the fun. The sweater I have on today is under $20, and I don’t think anyone would ever even know. You can even get creative with this trend….I have seen adorable Iron on and Stick on patches…DIY!!

Below, I have linked today’s outfit and several other favorite patched pieces I have fell in love with at all price points. Thanks for stopping by today. Have an amazing weekend everyone!!



Get Graphic

Starting my Monday in this cowgirl/prairie like/floral patchwork tee from Coach. I literally could not decide on which one I wanted because they are all so adorable. The bold colors are the perfect statement for summer. I went with the white because I wanted to focus on the vibrant reds, and also because I wanted to pair my red Toga boots detailed with western buckles…I thought they were a perfect match for this look. This tee is also available in grey and also in an irresistibly soft sweatshirt. 

I have on white shorts from Alice & Olivia today, but I also love the idea of red shorts (maybe with a different color shoe). For shorts on the dressier side and the perfect wide-leg trousers, Alice & Olivia is always my go to. I am mentioning the trousers because I think they would look really cool as well however, I would do a heel or wedge instead of a bootie. The other tee’s I was debating over are screen-printed with different ‘landscapes’ and are super unique. What I love most about today’s post is that all items/ similar items linked below can be mixed and matched with each other and also with several other colors.  I hope you enjoy. Have a wonderful week everyone!

Patch Things Up

Your 70s style inspo starts with a jumpsuit…and ends somewhere between patchwork embellishments and vintage finds. The appliques on this pair of dungarees are lighthearted and they add a special touch. I tied a vintage Celine scarf around my neck and added white low top converse for a pieced together look and timeless appeal.

I am headed to Aruba next week and I definitely can see myself traveling in this number (or one of my many other vacation finds) because 1. it is comfortable and 2. most importantly… very cute. 

You see patches on everything these days from denim, to tee’s, and even sneakers…you can even buy them separate to DIY. Shop today's look and other adorable finds below:
