Playing with Prints

When it comes to prints, I like to keep mine simple. Anything that's too big and bold overwhelms my petite frame. I found this beautiful white silk blouse back in October, when I was looking for something pretty to wear to our anniversary dinner.  I couldn't resist the skirt, which has the same cute little boat print. Very nautical!










I find that when mixing prints, choosing similar prints in contrasting colour ways is the way to go. Have a bit of fun mix and matching. Keep accessories simple and let the prints do all of the hard work for you. 

This is the outfit which I wore to our family Christmas Eve celebration last night. It was the perfect evening, catching up with family. The food was pretty amazing too!

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas, filled with wonderful moments to cherish. I hope you have had a beautiful day!

Yours in Style,

  3. This is a really nice and fresh look. You remind me a bit of Jennifer Love Hewitt (in her hot days).

    I am following your blog now, do you want to follow me back?

  5. What a phenomenal pairing! I am so jealous that you have lovely weather - it's just plain old cold and not snowy here in Denver!

    1. Elizabeth, what a sweet comment. Thanks so much.
      Yes, we are lucky to have such lovely weather here. I can imagine how cold it must be where you are in Denver. The snow must look so pretty.
