How to Pattern Mix with Colors

August 06, 2015

I wore this my last day in California and traveling home.  I spent my last morning in Cali with my son and of course on the beach.  It was such an amazing trip and the quality time we had together will be memories we both will treasure forever.  I cried like most mothers when it was time to say goodbye.  It was hard leaving him knowing it would be the holidays before I would see him again. 

 I made it to the airport and on my plane just fine but something stirred inside me when 
we taxied down the runway and the tears started to flow again.  I was a sap and was trying to contain myself.  Talk about making the person next to you feel weird.  I think I hid it and pulled myself together and tried to focus on my magazines and of course my fabulous treats from Bottega Louies I picked up while in LA the day before.  It was a long day of traveling  with full planes and coming back to the reality of no cool evenings, ocean walks, and not a care in the world!  Welcome home to the hot humid Midwest... you know what they say; There's no place like home and my own bed and pillow were a welcome sight.  

Orange generally isn't a color I am drawn too.  But these muted stripes somehow were appealing.  The fit of these shorts are comfy and I liked the length for me.  I wasn't too sure what I would wear them with when I first got them, but knew if all else failed a white tank would work.  Being the pattern mixer I am, I immediately went right to this tank in my closet and loved it together.  I accessorized pulling the blues from the top and my new Kendra Scott earrings.  We have a new store opening here next week and I cannot wait to try out the color bar.  Have any of you experienced the color bar?  I would love to know what you made!   

These aren't the brightest of pictures; the sun was trying to make its way out of the morning clouds.
