I swear I mix patterns with every other outfit I wear. Stripes and florals are becoming a bit of a classic I think; it seems to be the go-to pattern mixing mix of most bloggers, and you know what they say - if it ain't broke...!

This is also the debut [on the blog] of the monogram necklace I got for my birthday from Mr. Summers. I'd wanted the real deal for quite a while and I was sooooo excited to finally get one of my own. I kinda went all-out on the gold bling - necklace, bracelets, watch, rings, nail polish... too much?!!


Happy Thursday, folks!

  12. Catherine, your beauty is other-worldly in these incredible photographs.
    Your accessories make this outfit for me - hairstyle, glasses, and not-too-much-at-all (just saturated!) gold.
    Completely gorgeous post!

  14. You have such amazing instincts when it comes to styling. You never seem to put a foot wrong. I either hit it, or completely miss. This week I had one outfit that was the clown that escaped from the madhouse!!

  16. That kimono jacket is exquisite, Catherine! The lines are so soft and feminine. I think you're right, stripes and florals is a classic go-to. It's an easy one to balance and this is a great example of styling it well. Have a great weekend!!! ~Sarah

  23. I know you will love your necklace. I know I love mine. I have worn it so much that some of the gold has rubbed off the back of it. It is just a classic piece that works with anything. I love your pattern mixing and especially this one. Very pretty! Your nails look fab too.
