Be My Valentine!

Time for a Q&A post! 
"What are your tips for mixing and matching unrelated pieces to create successful unique looks?"




There are a few tips I always try to remember when I am mixing unrelated pieces. 

First, I limit the colors to no more than three. When wearing two or three pieces that are all the same color, I try always to mix the textures since the colors will rarely match exactly. 

Don't be afraid to mix modern with classic. That is one of the secrets to keeping your looks current. If I am wearing something trendy, I keep all the other items very traditional and classic.

Learning which colors and proportions look best on your body shape makes it a lot easier to mix and match pieces with confidence.






We had not planned to go out to dinner for Valentine's day, but when our dearest friends called to invite us to join them, we gladly accepted.

I found this brocade jacket on sale at Chico's recently. This was the perfect evening to wear it for the first time. Considering that it is so ornate, I kept the other accessories to a minimum. The small reptile embossed box clutch is from S.M. Bradford in Hilton Head. The faux leather front Ponte knit back leggings are also from Chico's. The short boots are by French Connection via Saks Off 5th.

The Covered Perfectly long sleeve simple comfort tunic has the best neckline for layering I have ever worn. I also love that they are sleek fitting so that they keep me warm, but they don't add any bulk under my jackets. More black and also the white tunics will be back in stock soon. They are selling so fast the USA maker of these tops is having difficulting keeping up with the demand.






When I answered the door Mr. Mickey handed me a dozen roses, Godiva chocolates, and one card for each day until Valentine's Day. I count myself very lucky to be his lady!

Cute Little Number

I will be traveling often during the next few weeks, so I am looking for pieces that will serve me well as I move from a cold climate to much warmer ones. I prefer an easy comfortable but still well-dressed airport style.






I was thrilled to find this cashmere topper which I can wear as a poncho or as an infinity scarf. The pop of red makes me feel happy. It is the cute little number I referenced.





The fabric is very soft and supple so it drapes beautifully. 





The black turtleneck top and the jeans are from Fabrizio Gianni. The shoes are by BCBGeneration via Nordstrom. 
The bag is by Zac Posen via Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH.





The Claudia Nichole cashmere topper comes in many beautiful colors. I had a difficult time deciding which one to go with but I am very happy with this color which is Poppy. I found it on the Purple Poppy website. The shop is located in one of my favorite places to visit, Cape Cod. This topper was supplied by Purple Poppy.

These are all the colors the topper comes in!
