The fox says “Playful AND Polished”!

Maybe you are familiar with a somewhat silly song called “The Fox”. But you may not know that if you ask “what does the fox say?” to Siri on your Apple device you may just get a silly and fun answer!
And fun is the name of the game for today’s outfit. I paired a cute fox themed sweater with some skinny jeans and a button down shirt for a cool, classy yet casual look. When choosing a basic sweater it’s good to pick one with a few bold graphics. Animals, symbols or characters are all good but don’t overdo! It looks best when confined to relatively small areas like just the front.
For the button down shirt I like the look of a plaid or denim for pairing. If going with the denim make sure it’s a different shade than your jeans for just the right amount of contrast. Add a bit of high society with a statement necklace, a purse with a shiny chain strap and an accent color hat. I’m wearing some suede booties but heels will also work great for this scene.
You’ll look just as at home going shopping as getting ready for your next fox hunt. I’ve never been to Jolly Olde England but have been told that foxes are about as common there as squirrels are at my house so when I do go, I’ll be ready.

Tally ho! And Cheers!

Say Hello to Yellow!

I’m always in danger when I go to my local shopping mall. No matter what I’m going in for I often come out with something else entirely. That was the case with the bright yellow coat I’m wearing in today’s post. Those devious people at my nearby Macy’s seemed to know I was coming so they baited the trap with a splash of color in a rack right in the aisle where I’d be sure to see it. Actually I always have an idea of where the holes are in my wardrobe and if I see a good item to fill in, AND the price is right, it follows me home.
In this case I had been looking for a warm (both in temperature and color) yellow coat to help me get through the long winter to come. Bright springtime colors always remind me of my garden and the flowers that will come back after their long sleep. It seems I am not alone. One of my favorite actors, Mindy Kaling from The Mindy Project TV show was recently photographed in some similar outerwear.

I kept the pastel palette going with a light green cozy cashmere sweater. Short booties, black jeans, a felt hat and wool scarf around my neck finished off my look of the day and kept me nice and toasty warm. I think it’s just perfect for me to go out on another shopping adventure with my new BFF Mindy. Now if only she would return my calls!
