Houndstooth and Lace







Happy 2014! Wishing you all a year full of beautiful memories, health, love and lots of laughter. My future daughter in-law, Rebecca,  has been my beautiful and gracious model this week, since I have been under the weather.  This is what she wore to a casual dinner and drinks on New Year's eve with the family. I thought it was such a pretty combination of two classic fabrics,  that I ran out the door after her with my camera to capture her look for my blog…ummm, welcome to the family Rebecca!  We are very happy to have you in our lives!

Thank you all for joining me on my blogging journey and for your lovely comments over these past few months! I'm looking forward to an amazing 2014 and all the possibilities it has to offer, as well as pushing myself out of my comfort zone this year.  What are you looking forward to changing or improving this year?

What Rebecca is wearing:  Jacket: Nordstrom, old, but similar one on sale at Zara // Lace top: Abrecombie  // Jeans:  Loft // Boots: Vince Camuto, old, similar // Bag:  Michael Kors large Jet Set, sold out, but medium Jet Set here // Necklace:  J.Crew, sold out, but also love this one

    I need to realize that I'm never too old to pursue my dreams. I love the unexpected elements of her outfit. Most would pair a black bag and boots with the houndstooth. I like it a lot with the cognac color.

  18. I love the jacket! Houndstooth is one of those prints I'm always on the fence about, but she pulled it off in such a minimalistic, chic look!
