I’m a blazer lover – I have quite a few and I would say it’s a big part of my definitive style. But I wasn’t always someone who wore them. I think because I don’t work in a traditional office situation, it didn’t really land on my radar. However, once I started buying blazers and wearing them, I couldn’t stop!
Plaid in fashion…..
|One of my favorite pins ever! Love the colorful scarf against the camel coat.|
|I’m seriously in love with this coat! Why am I such a coat person when I live in Southern California???!|
|Tartain pants! Adorable.|
|Perfect casual winter day outfit! And those red wellies!!|
Plaid in Christmas decor….=&3=&
|Possibly the cutest porch scene ever! Perfection. Via Craftberry Bush.|
|Love the pop this plaid gives to this otherwise very neutral room. And how cute are those window shades?|
|Just lovely. Via Craftaholics Anonymous.|
|This is a tablescape I did recently using my new plates from Home Goods. The whole tablescape (with sources) can be seen here.|
|Via Better Homes and Gardens.|
|Again, just a touch of plaid in a neutral room can be very sophisticated.|

|Beautiful! Via In Good Taste.|
|Just a touch in this room really pops. Via Pottery Barn.|

One of the biggest fashion trends talked about for Fall is the cape. They are back! Capes and cape “style” coats are super hot right now. Not only are they incredibly chic, but also practical for anyone who lives in a place that doesn’t get that cold in the winter (like me:)). It’s more stylish than a coat, but also because the arms are not completely covered, it allows for some air flow when you don’t need to be completely covered up. Plus, I’m sorry, is there anything more elegant than a cape?
I guess because I’m not a huge dress wearer in general, I tend to think of summer as more “dress oriented” than other seasons. And I definitely think of white as the summery-est of colors. So those two put together? The definition of summer! Is there anything more indicative of summer than a great white dress?! I don’t think so! Whether it’s a casual shift dress worn with flats or sneakers, or a sexy white dress worn to dinner or a summer party, there is simply nothing more reminiscent of summer than a great white dress.
Every spring there is a “must have” shoe for the season. And what is the “It” shoe for Spring 2015? Espadrilles! They are everywhere! And though I always see a few every time Spring rolls around, I have never seen the abundance that I have this year. They are everywhere from J. Crew, to Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus, even Target and Old Navy have some (and at great prices).
I have become completely obsessed with the spring trend of pleated skirts. It all started with my 805 Living spread that I worked on in February. I put the model in an Alice + Olivia hot pink chiffon pleated maxi skirt, and though that skirt is totally inappropriate for my life, I loved it!
