Broad Stripes

I realize this has been a full week of striped posts other than Mani Monday, but this one is different.  When I saw the thicker stripes and shades of burgundy and pink,  I thought it was a perfect fit with this amazing mural in Carlsbad.

Stripes and Bows

Is it really over?  The holidays arrive like a speeding train with all the preparations, shopping and decorating.  Then each year the train departs until next year in the blink of an eye.  I was happy to capture a little bit more of the holiday with this tree and bows.

Yes, I am wearing another striped shirt.  I love the grosgrain ribbon details.  I styled it with my new J. Crew Signet bag, black toothpick jeans, leopard flats and Ryan sunglasses.

Zebras and Tigers, Oh My!

This stunning mural “Catnap” by Michael Summers is the perfect backdrop for my new J. Crew Zebra top.  Summers says the design was inspired by the quote from American theologian Reinhold Neibuhr, “Change is the essence of life. Be willing to surrender what you are for what you may become.”

I styled the top with my favorite lace pants, pink sunglasses, velvet clutch and glitter pumps, all from J. Crew.  The shoes and top were previously sold out.  As of press time, both are available in several sizes.  Grab them while you can…
