It’s from a Gudrun Sjoden catalog. I don’t think they do paper catalogs anymore, which is a shame as they were amazing sources of color pairing and pattern mixing inspiration. This photo alone probably sparked three or four outfits. But this time around I realized I had a black and white dress with irregular spots in my wardrobe and could get closer than ever to the original look. Startlingly close, in fact, though a few details are different. read more

I stole this color combination from a Target ad. I can’t for the life of me find a version of it online, but it’s part of their Color Changes Everything campaign. I love color, and I love wearing color WITH color, but I find that I get stuck in color pairing ruts. The Target campaign shows outfits and decor ideas that are just loaded with fun and inspiring color combos. I plan to nick a few more from them in the coming months. read more

I wore this cheery outfit to have coffee with my friend Christina. Not only is she one of the most talented, driven, and generous people I’m fortunate enough to know, but every time I see her I feel invigorated and renewed. We swap stories and business plans, and always part company with new ideas to help us reach further and do more. I’m a lucky gal, no? read more
