Pink and Patterned Pants

Happy Monday!! I have the day off of the day job so it's extra happy for me! Hope everyone had a great weekend! Yesterday was a day of "nothing" for me, the first day of "nothing" in a very long time, and it was wonderful (and much needed)!

When I was looking at the pictures for today's post I realized two things ~ I have been wearing a lot of pink lately and every time I wear these pants I mix them with another pattern. A lot and every time! The pink thing ~ maybe subconsciously February equals pink to me (you know, Valentine's Day and all) and the patterned pant mix thing ~ these pants are just easy to mix because of the large pattern and the black and white colors.

I love a Chanel inspired jacket. To me they are classic, timeless and make any outfit sophisticated. I pair my jackets with everything from skirts to jeans. I also love wearing a brooch with my jackets ~ it feels very Coco. This brooch is probably the most special piece of jewelry on earth to me. It belonged to my grandmother, Grace Kelly. It's from the 1940's and has her initials on it in little diamonds. I never got to meet my grandmother, she died before I was born, but I'm named after her (my middle name is Grace), and wearing this brooch makes me feel close to her in some way. Do you own anything like that? Something that once belonged to someone special to you and you feel like they are with you when you wear it, hold it, use it, look at it? I have a few things like that (one is an old red cardigan that belonged to my beloved Grandaddy) and they are so precious to me!

Have a savvy and stylish day!
