Live Colorfully.

My personal style mantra is to wear the things that make me happy. As much as I love a great all black outfit, or a super flattering fit and flare dress, if it doesn’t sing to me or make me happy, I won’t buy it. I’ve always gravitated to pretty floral prints, bright stripes, and patterns like polka dots and hearts… in bright colors, especially pink, red, and cobalt blue. I’ll probably never be the cool girl in the super minimalist outfit, but I’m alright with it… color is fun. That’s one of the reasons why I love Kate Spade’s “Live Colorfully” motto. It applies to how I dress, and how I live my life… I never want to be boring… or bored, for that matter!

Hope you guys are having a great week. Mine is breezing along… last night I had a fun dinner with Sweetgreen (they just opened their UWS location) and tonight I have a fun party with Barney’s to celebrate their holiday windows! Tis the season…

Kate Spade recently sent me this watch and I really love it. It makes the perfect gift as it’s available in every letter of the alphabet (your initial goes at the 5 o’clock mark!)

    Hi Grace!

    I’m really crushing on this look! Thanks for giving ideas for classics that aren’t minimalist! I too love florals, stripes, etc., but seem to pick ones that can be too trendy. I always am looking for things that are fun yet timeless! 🙂
