Memorial day is coming up and I was thinking the other day about all the “fashion rules” that surround holidays like Memorial day and Labor day. Boy, are they silly. Don’t you think? Then I started thinking about all the old school fashion rules and how out dated I think they are. I for one am a big fan of http://www.flickr.com/photos/jenloveskev/5363828372/! I love wearing brown and black/navy together, I love mixing http://www.flickr.com/photos/jenloveskev/5728455143/, I love wearing http://www.flickr.com/photos/jenloveskev/3880438872/ and my absolute favorite rule breaker is I LOVE MIXING PATTERNS!!
Have you been in a jcpenney lately? Well I hadn’t. To be honest, It’s not the first place I think of when I go shopping. However, the kind folks over there contacted me about working together and I thought sure I will give it a go. I thought of it as a challenge. Well. I was wrong. It was no challenge at all. I took in about 50 items with me to the dressing room and I loved them all. I totally forgot they carry the I Heart Ronson stuff which was awesome. They also have this great Mango section with adorable items. I had the hardest time narrowing it all down. Not to mention I am in love with the American Living kids clothing (more on that later!)
Ok, back to mixing patterns. Shoot I am writing too much here. I couldn’t help myself but pair this beautiful dress with a fun polka dot belt. I think it totally added to the dress. Now the fun part. A giveaway!!
