PATTERN PLAY with Marshalls

fall street style via lauren kelpYes my friends, what you are seeing is true. A very rare fashion post is hitting the site today! I am absolutely not the fashionable friend, nor do I claim to be, but when I was shopping for an entertaining photo shoot at Marshall’s the other day & say this dress and draped shawl, I just had to share!

Typically, I am attracted to gray tones, blacks, and creams, so this is not off of my normal color palette, but the pattern is what totally struck me! Plus, it’s a knit! It’s a fabulous, stretchy, won’t wrinkle knit! fall street style via lauren kelpIf you haven’t jumped on the knit train, you should because they are amazing. They are perfect to pack (because they don’t wrinkle), stretchy but don’t get blown out, and wildly versatile. I am not much of a pattern gal because they can be pigeonholed as one note, or too trendy. This guy, however, can go traditional – perfect for a brunch with the Grandparents – but it can also go a little brocade – a slam dunk for a go-to work piece.

It’s fantastic <3 How can you go wrong with a matte black, cozy shawl, that has shearling inside, & drapes like a boss. I talk about food & entertaining, so maybe take my fashion advice with a grain of salt (preferably pink Himalayan salt 😉 ) but next time you are browsing the Marshall’s shelves for fabulous kitchen & entertaining supplies, head on over to those clothing racks & see what you can find. You never know, you might be surprised by the perfect matte black shawl & pattern dress!
