- I already have a good selection of stripe pieces, but my VV Boutique bottoms have provided great pairing options. Then there is the chevron stripe skirt that I scored - great for winter and great for bottom stripes!
- My Ann Taylor skinny cargo pants might just be my favourite VV Boutique piece yet! I could wear them every day.
- Pretty blouses, especially when paired with those cargos...
- I suppose I should note that the crop pants are cute but gave me a false sense of crop ability.
- Blush tops... I'll show you soon but found something I loooove! For $3!!! Stay tuned...
- Neutrals with interesting details
- Neutrals with colourful accessories.
- Bold colour! Sigh, I love my orange pants.
- Colourful patterns appear over and over and over and over and over and over...
- Interesting layers are a recurring theme!
It was the first style collage that inspired me this morning - the cardi, skinny belt, clean lines and interesting necklaces were calling to me! Just after seeing this post by another inspirational style blogger J's Everyday Fashion, I found an Ann Taylor snow-leopard print cardi and cried tears of happiness!
Ann Taylor cardi $7, green Talbots sweater $10, DKNY teal cords $9, teal belt $3 and pointy flats $7

I love these pants - so warm and cozy and perfect for a day like today when I'm home with the kids then travelling for work, then off to supper and Bible study. Busy days require sturdy warm comfy clothes! Though I like the colour mixing of green and teal, I didn't like the different collar lines on these pieces, so I swapped out the green for a scoop neck blue Gap sweater from my closet.
We'll call this the monochromatic trend!
Better, don't you think?!
