Mix 'n' match

Learning to not be afraid of mixing patterns and colors has taken me a while. I think my kids are my source of inspiration on that style decision. Dressed up T with jeans

Chloe (nearly 5) has just started to show interest in picking out her own outfits each morning and I think it’s because she comes up with unique matches that I decide to do the same.  I have to admit that sometimes when a rather abstract selection emerges from her closet, I gently encourage her with other options (Yes, I have a control issue. I’ll work on that)

Stella and Dot bracelets

One of my splurges last fall was on this Helmut Lang bra. It’s not necessarily supportive for those of you with larger chests, but it’s my favorite way to take a basic top and make it even more of a statement. I wear it in the winter with chunky sweaters, blouses, and even shift dresses and in the summer it’s great to layer under tees, and sheer tanks. I’m sure you’ll see it in many future posts. I strongly recommend adding it to your wardrobe.
