Stripes, Polka Dots, and Sparkle

IMG_1746_Layers_v1

I donned this get-up on a “business” lunch the other week with my boss and coworkers.  Nico was in tow, which is why the business is in quotes, and it was more of a catch up session on what’s been going on in the past few months as well as a chance for my office to meet my little guy.  I liked this stripe, polka dot, and sparkle mix so much I decided to sport it again while on our trip to Maryland over the holiday.  Pattern mixing can sometimes be tough, but I think it works well when you keep within the same color palette.  How do you all feel about pattern mixing?

The holidays are in full force!  We put up our tree last night and decorated the house.  It was so sweet to watch Nico’s eyes and smile grow wide when he saw us putting up all the lights.  He was kicking so hard with joy in his rock-and-play, I thought he might jump out and try to help!  We did get him a super cute sock monkey stocking and a brand new ornament which he helped to put on the tree.  It’s crazy to think how different this Christmas is from last year’s.  I even cried while dancing to Silent Night with my little family.  Ok, enough of the emo stuff.  Nico and I are off to his 3 month doctor’s appointment today.  Hope you all are enjoying the week and the holiday season!

XO,

Gina

  1. I love pattern mixing. It can be tough to get it right, and you pull it off great! I have some similar shoes that I just got, and I love them!

    Wow, Nico is already 3 months!! Crazy, time flies! I guess Winter just passed the 8 week mark yesterday, so that’s crazy for me too. Happy holidays….sounds like your house is very festive right now with your decorations.

  2. Gina, you did well with the mixing of prints. I mix them all the time. Big polka dots with little polka dots, plaid with animal prints, strips with florals…I mean I do it all. I feel to rock the mixing of patterns you have to have alot of confidence to pull this look off. You look great, so continue to be darling because your confidence shows.
