Hip to be Square

I’ve driven by this wall in Los Angeles so many times by myself and thought it would be fun for an outfit post.  This past weekend, my son and husband were taking me to the shopping event at J. Crew and they both pointed to it as we drive by and said “that would make a great shoot”.  So we stopped and did a quick shoot in my event outfit (which included my favorite new shoes).  I styled them with my latest denim obsession, New York sweatshirt and a gingham button-down.

Thank you to all who came to the event.  Stay tuned for an evening event in the next month or so.

Triple Stripes

Triple stripes?  Why not?  For this look I styled a shirting striped top with a striped clutch (similar here and here), a striped silk scarf (thank you J. Crew!) as a bracelet, Piper sunglasses in ocean, white denim and denim pom-pom flats.

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.

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…
