Pattern Play

As, dare I say it, snow begins to fall on the east coast it is time to think in layers, layers and more layers. Layers provide so many opportunities to take risks and channel your inner “bag lady” if you know what I mean. Patterns are what can turn the outfit from verging on eskimo to fashionable.


Mixing a bold pattern with more subtle one for example, a striped crop with this geo print cardi, can pull together a visually interesting outfit.






side note: isn’t this street gorgeous? Take yourself out in a great outfit and go explore new paths.

IMG_0890For those colder nights,  throw on a coat with some fur, and chunky scarf (Tyra says models need neck, but clearly she hasn’t been outside in November, the bigger the scarf, the better).  A beanie helps to. And for those really cold days, use sweat pants for traveling purposes. They have helped me get place to place under a skirt.

Harem Pants!

If there is any trend that I have taken full advantage of, its harem pants. Who wouldn’t want to wear their pajamas to work? These pants can transition for any occasion and are extremely comfortable.

Throw on a sun hat, tank and some sandals and these harems are perfect for the beach. Lightweight, and breezy perfect as a swimsuit cover up.

Throw on a blazer and some black harem’s and take on the office by storm. And the best part, you could roll into the next board meeting in practically your jammies and still look professional.

This look is perfect to transition from a plane to a meeting on those business trip. This is probably the most professional I’ll get.

Tomboy? No problem. Throw on some chucks, and a beanie with your favorite graphic tee. This gives the harem pants an edge.
