You Show Me Your’s, And I’ll Show You Mine

Style.  Your STYLE focus!

When you think of what inspires your style, what comes to mind?


Last week mine began with these pink tulips.

You Show Me Yours, And I'll Show You Mine

You Show Me Yours, And I'll Show You Mine

It continued with this fun tote I spotted at the Kate Spade outlet.

You Show Me Yours, And I'll Show You Mine

Which reminded me of my favorite scarf, and the memories it holds of becoming a Granny.

You Show Me Yours, And I'll Show You Mine

Which all inspired me to dig through boxes in my garage. Tons of treasures came down during our move from Vancouver Island. But I remembered and wanted my Granny’s tea cups.

Inspiration is an electrifying process that sparks my creativity. How about you?

Heather and I are anxious to see what inspires your style. We’d love you to join us and share your style inspirations.

    Jennifer I am probably not following the rule; however when I started seeing images of Andrea’s last event, I knew I had to break out of my box, take a leap (after emailing Andrea) and make plans to come to Laguna Beach in May.

    Tamera’s photos made it even more compelling. Please come down, I have wanted to meet you for so long! Talk to nay of our other Northern California ladies and encourage them as well!

    Art! Art always inspires me. If I’m feeling dull and uninspired, all I have to do is go to a museum or art gallery. I can look at some really odd painting or sculpture (I may not even really like it) and draw inspiration from it. That, and espresso machines and Vespas…


    • Jennifer
      April 24, 2015 / 10:22 am

      Galleries are so inspiring. And living where you do, you have great access to some of the best! Vespas and espresso machines…is there a story behind that??

  6. April 24, 2015 / 9:45 am

    I’m linking a post done a while back, but one I’ve loved every time I re-read it. Thank you for putting this together, and when I ship all those bags out I’ll pop over to read everyone elses. xx’s

      I’m so glad you stopped by Deborah!! Pink and Gold is gorgeous together, which surprises me because I always think of it with silver! I should really print a copy of that picture and frame it. Xoxo

  14. April 25, 2015 / 5:56 am

    I love that photograph of you with your grandson-pure contentment and love, Jen. I resonate with your list of elements that inspire your life. It just proves that it’s not about how much we spend but “how we live our lives” (to quote a stylish and wise woman;). I have had a blast co-hosting this #stylefocus LinkUp with you lady!
    As I look over the collection of creativity, beauty and talent showcased and linked to our blogs I’m a little overwhelmed-it’s gorgeous! To think we have a couple of days left for links to be added. If you are reading this, lovely readers, we would LOVE for you to add your links to the inspiration!
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend my fab friend!

      This has been such an amazing linkup Heather.
      I’m so thrilled with the amazing response we’ve had. Clearly, there has been a desire for this sort of lifestyle linkup. Fashion is fabulous, but how we live our lives and what inspires our lifestyle is obviously touching a cord with so many talented women.
