I read an article the other day about the things a woman should have by the age 30. I loved it and agreed with everything, but I’d like to add something. A signature look. We all need an outfit we can throw on when we’ve hit snooze too many times and are late to a meeting, but still want to look and feel our most confident.

For me that look is a high-waisted a-line skirt, blouse and ankle strap heels. It just works with my body type. I’m petite, (5’4″) but have a long torso and shorter legs, but this combo works for me, makes my body look proportionate and I turn to it over and over again.

On another note I’ve gotten lots of questions on how to mix prints. And I know it can be daunting! One rule I like to stick to is mixing similar colors. Black and white stripes are always a good “neutral” to build on. When in doubt add florals. I always like to ask myself if the prints I’m mixing would look good on one piece of clothing. If the answer is yes I go for it!
