My Signature Style

Earlier this week, I presented a technology workshop for some fellow teachers and administrators. Yesterday, a man who was at the workshop thanked me for the information that I presented, but told me that he was surprised that I was not wearing pink on that day. He said that it was the first time he remembers seeing me in navy. So many people have made similar comments to me.

If I had to define my signature style, I'd say that I pick pink more often than not and love bold, bright prints.

The Look: Grace Kelly goes to Palm Beach

Wardrobe Basics: Pink is a neutral color in my wardrobe! I prefer dresses because they are a huge time saver in the morning and help me to look polished and put together easily. I love Lilly Pulitzer prints as well as classic plaids and patterns like nautical stripes and polka dots. Animal prints are another favorite, especially anything with elephants on it.

Not Anywhere in My Wardrobe: I am not a fan of shorts at all. Believe it or not, I do not own a single pair of shorts! Besides the fact that I can't wear them to work, I feel more comfortable (and cooler) wearing dresses or skirts during the hot summer months.

Inspiration: Inspiration is everywhere, but I especially find inspiration when I travel. I love the patterns, prints, and style of things that I see when I travel and have a passion for indigenous weaving, ikat, and handmade jewelry. I always take an extra suitcase or bag with me to bring home local treasures wherever I go.

Style at Home: With the exception of my daughters' bedroom and bathroom, I tone things down a bit for my home d├ęcor. Instead of everything in pink or a bold print, I incorporate a pop of color as an accent piece in the living room or family room. For bedding and bath, I frequently change the color or print scheme to mix things up a bit. I love it that Garnet Hill has such an outstanding collection of Lilly Pulitzer Home items.
