Gimme Some Play

Lately I’ve been really into shopping my closet and getting more use out of the things I already have. I used to be uncomfortable with wearing the same item “too often,” but now I think it’s tres chic to have a few good pieces and wear the heck out of them. It’s also quite fun to come up with new combinations as it makes you fall in love with the items over and over.

While looking through my shoes the other day I came across these animal print booties that I bought 3 or 4 years ago. If memory serves me correctly, I’ve probably worn them less than 5 times. These shoes are super comfy and leopard is one of my favorite prints, so I really should have been pulling them out more often. In any case, it was a must that I put them in rotation and came up with this ensemble to give them some play.

I wanted to tie in the colors in the shoes without being overly matchy, so I paired them with my brown faux leather shorts and this comfy blush knitted sweater. I love mixing lengths as I think it’s an easy way to add dimension to an outfit, so I opted for a lightweight green duster coat which also gave a nice contrast.

First, I want to say that I love the fact that you give back to your followers without asking for anything in return. I have nothing against those that do, but you show great character. I love you style and this particular article reminds me of myself. I was torn in between the wig, shoes, and gift cards, but any gift is fine if I am chosen. -YouTube: Sarahs Klass

Start with the basics and in neutral colors so that you can mix and match. Once you’ve got a solid foundation, start incorporating prints and colorful statement pieces.

Your website looks really nice. Congrats on 600k subscribers. I love this post. I really want to start investing my money into quality pieces that I can get a lot of use out of and that I’m in love with. I want to build a closet full of favorites and basics, and find new ways to wear those favorites. Maybe you could do videos or posts here and there featuring a specific item that you already have (or that a lot of people may already have, like a pair of leopard print shoes) and create a few different looks with it. You may have done this before but I think those posts would be helpful and inspiring.

My username on youtube is Michelle W. I would be happy with any prize but my number 1 is the gift cards

Hello, The Chic Natural! I am a huge fan of your channel, videos and now, this website. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this outfit!! I have been trying to see how to incorporate more prints into my outfits without over doing it, and this is outfit NAILED it! I and my sister love to go through our closet and “shop” l and see how many outfits we can make using the same few pieces. It is super fun, so I definitely get your point here. I just want to say that I am definitely inspired by your style, passion, and your ability to just be you. The chic Natural! I am someone that has not always been confident in my beauty and in myself, and style. Watching your videos helped me build my confidence; your fashion videos give me ideas and I can go back into my closet and come out with outfits that I didn’t think of. And when I dress well, I feel good, and this raises my confidence. Seeing women like you go out there and just kill it each time is sooo inspiring. This is why I want to say thank YOU for being a woman that continues to motivate and encourage all women to see their own beauty and style and be confident with who they are by sharing with us your fabulous style, your confidence and your beauty. Congratulations on reaching 600,000 subscribers! This is definitely not the end of it! I wish you continued success in all your endeavors. My YouTube username is Ebahi Ikharo, and I would LOVE prize number 1. Thank you so much for this!
