Mixing Patterns & Color Blocking

This weekend I went shopping and my mind sparked while seeing a Dad and Daughter having coffee together. When I was little, my dad and I would go to Barnes & Noble (book store if you aren’t familiar) once a week. We could call it being ‘café people’ we would go to the café portion of the store and sit there for hours. My dad read or worked on his computer and I would look at fashion magazines. I would have a stack of about 15 magazines and flip through the pages, rarely read… I feel like things haven’t changed 🙂

What do you think made you gravitate towards your passion?

This outfit was seriously so easy to put together. Blanket scarves are part of my Fall/Winter uniform. I paired it with a striped top and used my shoes to add a pop of color. You can seriously wear this outfit with different scarves and be set for a week!
