We are definitely getting winter over here on the east coast, which has meant lots of layering for me. Now I love layering with patterns, but I also love layering with colors. Layering is such a great way to experiment with different color combinations or add a little something extra to an otherwise quiet outfit.
Pattern mixing has always been one of my favorite things so it seemed like the perfect way to start off the new year and the new blog! First of all, let me say how excited I am about the new blog here and all of the exciting things I have planned for 2018. If you are not already signed-up for our newsletter, make sure to sign-up on the right. The newsletter will go out once a week with sneak peaks of upcoming content, exclusive details and style ideas, plus other exciting things you won’t see on the blog.
OK, now back to the important stuff, clothes! I feel like pattern mixing has this stigma of being really difficult, but it doesn’t have to be! Especially this time of year, you can easily mix two patterns and then tone it down with the rest of your layers. Layering in general makes pattern mixing super easy because you have more options. So, if you are going to start pattern mixing, why not start now?
With an outfit like this, the plain jacket is what pulls the entire look together. So when you are trying to figure out what to wear, also take into consideration your non-patterned layers. These are what will help tone everything down while also connecting all of the pieces.
This skirt is one of my favorite pieces because it is tartan plaid, which I love. It also has navy and black in it so you can wear it with basically anything. As much as I love it though, it sadly doesn’t really fit me anymore. So I will be posting it on my ebay page later this week!
For those of you who don’t know, I am working on opening an online consignment store, but in the meantime, I have started posting early inventory on my ebay page. The things I am posting are not old or damaged in any way. They are just things I love, but no longer wear. So make sure to check it out and stay tuned for updates on the consignment store! Until next time…

As promised, I am adding five new items to my Ebay store
this week! If you missed out on this update, check out last week’s post
and see what I posted last week as well. So this week is five tops that are all great for transitioning into fall.
This top is a little thicker so perfect for these weird days when you need an extra layer. Plus, it has some good luck in there for you as I wore it for my first day of work at the auction house last year!
This is another good top that is a little thicker. Plus, it is a classic feminine look with the peter pan collar and tweed material. I love pairing this top with lots of pink accessories.
This buffalo plaid sleeveless button-up is the perfect cardigan over a tank top or sweater. Plus, you can easily wear it as a dress with leggings and boots. I love buffalo plaid for fall!
This collared shirt is another look that is perfect for fall. It is made of a thicker sweater material so great for staying warm in the warming. Plus, it is super cute with jeans or tucked into a skirt.
A light sweater like this is another great option for fall. It is not so heavy that you are uncomfortable, but it will still curb your need to wear a sweater until it is cold enough to wear a real sweater!
All of these will be posted on the Ebay site
today so check them out if you want to add some of these classics to your own wardrobe.
Hello all! I hope you have had a fabulous weekend! Mine has been eventful and I am definitely enjoying the excuse to stay in because of the cold, rainy weather here. As you now know, I am moving to London in September and I couldn’t be more excited. It is going to be an incredible opportunity and I am excited to be living in London again.
However, moving to another country does put a bit of a damper in my plans to start an online consignment store. If you don’t remember, check out my announcement here
. Now I have the problem of having a lot of inventory, a website that I was hoping to launch this summer, and the more pressing issue of needing to delay this project for the near future.
Instead of completely delaying the project, I have decided to sell a majority of the spring, summer, and fall clothes as well as jewelry and purses I have on eBay
Nothing has been posted yet, but I am hoping to post the first batch of clothes in the next week and then post new items fairly regularly. Here is a link to my eBay store
and make sure to check back periodically in case you see anything you like!
Also, feel free to contact me if there are any specific items that you have seen on the blog that you are interested in! You never know, they might be something I have already set aside to sell. Until next time, XO
