Where can I wear this? It's a question we here a lot here at the Boutique. The answer: it's not about where you're going. Clothing can create a mood or help you express a thought or feeling. Let your ensemble paint your outsides to match your insides, and go where you may...

Carrie asked Barbara: "How do you want me to dress you today?" Barbara answered: "I don't know... easy? Girly but casual? I'm still in Texas mode... casual cool?" Carrie combined stripes and florals--a dreamteam that's an easy way to go chic. Layering different shades of the same color makes for a warm, inviting ensemble. And the chocolate booties add the kiss of sex appeal that vamps up the earthy, understated look.
