Mixing Patterns

Tuesday, November 29, 2016 4:30 AM

Good Morning! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.
 The Holiday Season is officially in full swing and I couldn't be happier. Although stressful, this is one of my favorite times of year.  I got a jump on some shopping and spent some quality time with family. 

I can not go without mentioning that today is my niece Camille's 16th Birthday. 16 Years ago I was living in Los Angeles when my sister had the first of the six grandchildren.  A few weeks after she was born I came home for Christmas and got to spend a month with her. It was love at first sight. After returning to LA and unsure I would ever be able to love another little as much Camille, I decided to return to the east coast for good. I didn't want to miss a second of her growing up. In the past 16 years I have watched this perfect little girl turn into a beautiful young woman.  Her love for animals, loyalty to family and friends, tremendous sense of humor, intelligence and beauty are unparalleled and I am proud and privileged to be her Aunty EE.  She is my amazing photographer and one of my best friends and I can not imagine my life without her.

On to this look.  I am a huge fan of mixing patterns. A floral and a plaid, stripes and animal prints, whatever it may be I think layering and mixing prints adds depth to a look. 

What are your favorite patterns to mix?

xx, Elise

  25. Um, I'm reading your post and all of a sudden my throat starts constricting and my eyes start pooling. This is so sweet. Love, love, love. Maybe it's because right now my sister is in Alaska with my nieces and I miss them all. Thank you for sharing. Oh, and your outfit is fabulous. Love the strips, leather (I think, right?) and those shoes. Oh the fun to be had in fashion!
