MCLV Style: Maria Pinto Tunic

In preparation for the Maria Pinto pop-up event next Friday here in San Francisco {RSVP & event details here} I’m going to share some of my favorite pieces from the new M2057 capsule collection.

First, I showed off the purple turtleneck Tamara Dress while doing a little light climbing in patent leather Giuseppe Zanotti pumps {check out the full post here – Maria Pinto M2057}.

Oh, the life of a blogger. We’ll do anything to get the perfect shot!

And while those first shots turned out beautifully – I loved the gorgeous color of the dress against the impressive architectural background – I found that I quite liked these more ‘daily life’ images just as much.

Why?

What this look lacks in drama, it certainly makes up for in comfort and wearability. This Maria Pinto M2057 Tara tunic is the piece you buy and never take off. Incredibly comfortable and flattering, plus it goes with everything.

In fact, I’ve already planned by next outfit with the Tara tunic – Paired with a pencil skirt and pearls for the office!

Don’t forget to RSVP and come visit me & Maria Pinto on Friday, February 26th!

This hat makes me feel like a French film star in the 20’s and I absolutely adored pairing it with these all-over prints in this look. Colorful, fun, and eye-catching.

MCLV Style: Anchors Away

I ran into GAP a few weeks ago for a pair of flats and as soon as I saw these cropped pants across the room I knew that they had to be mine. They’re fun and unique, and oh-so-perfect for Spring.

I mean, there’s nautical, and there’s nautical!

This look also make me smile because I felt like I was getting ready to head outside for a gorgeous Spring day in San Francisco. Not. “Winter, we need to talk. I love you, but I think we should see other people.”

Are you ready for Spring like I am? What’s your favorite Spring style?

I’m writing this post from chilly New York City where I’ll be attending IFBCON & getting swept up in the madness that is New York Fashion Week. If you want updates & pictures be sure to follow me!

MCLV Style: Animal Prints

Nothing in the world is easier and more comfortable for a Saturday full of errands than leggings and a tunic. The main pieces in this look are the definition of basic black.

In order to keep the look from being boring I spiced it up with my new oversized orange+cheetah BCBG clutch, zebra print smoking flats, and a vintage elephant pendant. Cheetah, zebra, and elephant, you say? Now that’s not so basic!

Are you a fan of mixing prints? What about mixing animal prints like I did here? How many different prints is too many in your opinion?

MCLV Style: Striped Leopard

Mixing and matching patterned pieces can be such a creative exercise – Deciding what pieces go together, which prints would look good with which patterns, and putting the finishing touches on a look without going too over-the-top.

That’s my idea of a good time! 🙂

These peep-toe leopard print booties are a new acquisition. I was thrilled to discover that the Paragon Outlets in Livermore are not only close enough for a day-trip, they also feature outlets for Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Barneys NY.

It’s heaven in other words, so stay tuned for more of my fabulous finds from this great girls trip to Paragon!

What are you favorite prints or patterns to mix?
