From the sweet floral print of this babydoll dress to the bold yellow of my go-to statement necklace, I can't say no to pops of neon. While the colors might be a bit springy, there's nothing wrong with adding some bright spots to a dreary winter day!
Hey, local readers! You won't want to miss Sip & Shop KC. Brought to you by Biklops and 8183 Studio, it's the place for affordable, handmade holiday gifts from Kansas City’s best artists, designers, foodies and craftspeople. Mix and mingle, enjoy a delicious drink, and check everyone off your list! It's happening this Friday, December 6th, from 5:00 till 9:00 p.m. at 8183 Studios, 1735 Oak St. Kansas Couture will be there offering handsome neckties (a great gift for the guy in your life), glamorous clutches (a festive finishing touch for your holiday party ensembles) and framed giclee art prints (perfect for presents or a fun treat for yourself). All of my stuff is $10 or less, so you can afford to stock up. Stop by and say hello!
When I layered on all the different pieces of this look, I felt a little crazy...three colors, two patterns and both casual and fancy components. It felt right though, and seeing the head-to-toe ensemble, it looks right, too!
Jeans: Old Navy
Can you believe it? Thanksgiving came and went, and it's already December! The holidays are perhaps my favorite time of year, so I'm happy Christmas time is here...but it certainly snuck up on me this year! I'll be kicking off the season with a bang this Friday at Sip & Shop KC, a can't-miss shopping event featuring amazing local vendors. My offerings will include vintage accessories and art prints.Stay tuned for a post with all the important details and sneak peeks of my items on Instagram all week!
One of my favorite companies, Loly in the Sky, is offering Kansas Couture readers an exclusive Black Friday deal! Use code "Kansas" to get 25% off your purchase through Sunday, December 1st!

It's no secret that my favorite fashion decade is the sixties! Without even thinking about it, I repeatedly reach for the most mod styles I can find. This outfit was no exception, but it still managed to feel contemporary rather than costumey. As for the bare legs, these shots were taken on one of the temperate days we enjoyed not too long ago. I hear winter weather is making an appearance this weekend, but I won't be here to experience it. Tomorrow morning I'm off on a sister trip to San Francisco! While I probably won't update the blog until I get back next week, you can follow my California adventures on Instagram. Until next time!

When I'm scrambling to get out the door on time (let's be real, this happens almost daily!), one of the quick combinations I reach for again and again is jeans, a tee, a blazer, a scarf and boots. While it's a pretty basic recipe, there's still plenty of room for creativity from bright jeans to patterned scarves.
