Fashion

Black and white is perfect for the transition to spring 2013. Combining patterns with black and white accents is all the rage. I’m loving these white Rag and Bone jeans and handsome black striping.

I don’t know about you, but I am so ready for spring and warmer weather! Bright colors simply put us in the mood for the season. This emerald scarf with a yellow butterfly pattern brings a smile to my lips. Loving these Acne canary yellow super skinny jeans.

friday fashion favorites – tweed

by jani on February 15, 2013

Tweed is still in vogue for the spring 2013 fashion scene. Black and white is always a safe color combo and is very chic… as in the following set.

The colored tweed jacket adds a certain panache to the following outfit. Adding a splash of neon color with the Zara black and white heels completes this look.

Tweed has been a popular choice since the days of our First Lady, Jacqueline Kennedy, who wore  colored tweed suits and pillbox hats… she was truly a fashion icon!

So, tell me… I’d love to hear your comments. Do you love the new colorful tweeds as I do?

friday fashion favorites – brights!

by jani on February 8, 2013

Bright color really does spark up your outfits. It’s so fun to just add a touch of color to an ordinarily dull shade of black or gray. Although I do love black and white together… every now and then a splash of color under these cloudy skies truly does brighten our day!

I’m loving this shade of geranium in the blazer with this Tommy Hilfiger blue checked shirt! Adding a contrasting print in the floral handbag works. You still may need a scarf or knit beanie on these cold days, but this outfit just says, “I can’t wait until spring!”

Are you stepping out of your comfort zone of tees and jeans and going for that splash of bright color or neon? You can begin slowly with just a bright scarf. I’m hoping to become a bit more adventurous with my color and pattern combination… are you?
