OK…all of you who have waited for it to finally get cold in my part of the world…you got it!! The cold front tormenting the majority of the country has arrived in deep South Texas and the wind chill is brutal!!


But, I refuse to let that dampen my spirits…that is why today…I wore an outfit that is a style I call KOOKY CONSERVATIVE…inspired by Bella at http://www.thecitizenrosebud.com/2011/02/outfit-post-angeline-on.html…… Who was inspired by Angeline @http://the-new-professional.blogspot.com/…… who…. well, I honestly do not know who inspires Angeline!!


I love mixing patterns…but I warn you when you start mixing…some people will think you dressed in the dark!! A fashionista known for mixing- of- style & patterns needs to be a very confident, bold person in order to pull off the look! This is the artistic fun of styling when the designer within us all, peeks out from under the covers. Also, I was happy to learn that this “mixing up style” will continue to be a trend for Spring/Summer 2011.


I am not completely convinced that my look works for others…but I like it for me!! I took this scarf into my closet and held it up against several blouses and this one won the challenge!! Then I threw this pinstriped jacket on top for the conservative touch…VOILA KOOKY CONSERVATIVE!  Fashion should be creative and fun…and warm!!

Here’s to you, Bella!!
