Kate Spade for Gap

As the mother of two girls, I go a bit gaga over girl clothes.  Did you hear about the line of girls and boys clothes that Kate and Andy Spade did for Gap?  They are quintessential Kate Spade and even better  they are affordable!  Check out some of my favorites below.

They are selling out fast so I would hurry if you are interested! Do you have a girl you are lucky enough to outfit??  Do you have to restrain yourself like me??


Mixing Metallics

The holidays are a season of sparkle and glitter and gold and silver are a Christmas decor staple. I am often asked the question of whether it is okay to mix gold and silver and other metallic tones.

The answer my dears is a big FAT “Yes.”  Matchy matchy metals are a thing of the past.  Just as in fashion, mixing metals is the latest trend in interiors.

The key is to not go overboard and limit yourself to no more than 3 metal sheens in a room.  Take a cue from these rooms that mix gold, silver, nickel, brass and more!

So yes, you can put a brass object next to silver candlesticks.  A safe place for most people to experiment is with pillows!  So, get out of your comfort zone and mix it up!
