It is Show & Tell Tuesday and time to link up with Andrea HERE
I am charged with talking about my personal style
Those who know me, know I decorate at home with what is now being called a "transitional" twist.
It is very traditional with some contemporary hints/accents.
Exhibit A- Our Dining Room
(still not done- need the rug and some new fabric chairs but it is a work in progress)
My clothing style has been described as "LILLY" ha ha!! In all seriousness, I really love classic looks, many preppy looks and sometimes when dressing up, something sparkly and contemporary.
J Crew speaks to me- of course Lilly Pulitzer does too and now Nordstrom's and Macy's house many of my favorite looks
My sample Lilly look- PINK- flowery- romantic- so girly
I will hunt down preppy looks- this dress, that I wore in Nantucket for our 10 year anniversary (and a million times since!) is from a company called "Just Madras." Ruffly, preppy bliss- and check out Rob's shirt? LOVE plaid on me and him.
During the winter, I tend to wear a lot of black, however, I always need to brighten my outfits up. It may be with a necklace or even a handbag. This bright Kelly green Kate Spade bag adds my pop of color to an otherwise dull outfit. I also love throwing on my leopard flats to add an interesting pattern.
I am also thrilled that Kendra Scott decided to make the Rayne pendant. I started seeing them on the blogs I follow and indulged in a purchase of a cobalt blue one. After that, since I wanted one for every outfit, I scored some knock-off ones on Ebay- one pink, one marble, one black and one white. Then when I wanted another sturdy real one, I snagged the turquoise one. I think her accessories are the perfect accompaniment for all of my styles- preppy, romantic or contemporary!
The colors I gravitate too (outside of black) are PINK and SKY BLUE
Anytime my mom sees something in those colors, she knows I am going to love them
The more PINK the better I say. Lilly has two colors that I always gravitate to, "Hotty Pink" and "Shorely Blue". Look them up if you want to see colors that I think are pure bliss :)
and I am a big fan of Old Navy, especially for casual, every day clothes and outfits- my whole family is.
Old Navy actually makes my favorite jeans- I wear them ALL THE TIME
and at the same time, I love the formality and sophistication of a J Crew dress or suit or suggested outfit- they are truly timeless
That's my style- in a nutshell!
