Camo and Monograms

My go with everything leopard clutch needs a rest once in awhile.  Meet my new neutral clutch in camo from Parker Thatch.  It has already been on steady repeat in less than a week. I styled it with a Liberty print shirt, denim and my orange driving shoes. I also love the clutch in this navy striped version.

The mimi tote from Parker Thatch in camo is definitely on my list.  I just need to decide which way to personalize it (white large letters, HAPPY or letters with kiss.) The totes and clutches are made in California and are so fun to customize.

Also on my list from Parker Thatch are a monogrammed sweatshirt in gray or white and a striped shirt.  Santa, I hope you are reading this.

Horsing Around in Carmel

“You have to keep it”, said the VPS when I tried to return this sweatshirt to J. Crew.  I had gone on a bit of spree and was editing my choices.  It it sold out soon after and I ended up wearing it a lot (and I am still wearing it several years later).  There is nothing better than a well worn and loved item of clothing.  There is another sweatshirt (linked below) that I picked up in Carmel and have already worn on repeat.  I will feature it in Fridays’ post.  I styled this one with tweed mules, denim and a button down.

May Flowers

Bring on the May Poles, flowers,  and Mother’s Day.  May is such a promising month with the longer days, but it is also so busy.  As the school year is coming to an end there is so much going on.

My love of Liberty prints is well documented.  I initially bought this print in the shirt and then decided I have enough shirts.  Then I saw this blazer (which is currently on sale and available in lots of sizes) and I thought it was a fun new way to wear the print.  I love the ruffle detail.

I wore it for Easter and styled it with white jeans, a white linen t-shirt and leopard print accessories.

Ring the Bell

Happy National Stripes Day!  Those of us with a stripes addiction can rejoice today.   Thank you J. Crew!  If you are like me, you had a lot of to choose from.  I selected this bell-sleeved top and styled it with a liberty print blazer, lookout jeans, New Balance kicks and my Piper sunglasses.  The look was perfect for walking around Venice in off and on rain.  I love that the top is a new silhouette for me (I featured it recently in pink, here), but it still has my favorite stripes.

Pink Lady

My love of liberty prints is well documented.  When I saw this lady jacket from J. Crew with Liberty print trim, I had to have it. I styled it with a striped ruffled shirt, signet bag (with pom-pom), white jeans and denim pom-pom flats.
