Old School…New School

August 24, 2016

Carrying a white linen handkerchief¬†is definitely old school. I’ve been doing it for as long as I can remember. Carrying a handkerchief in a Liberty of London print? Definitely new school. And this print, Black Pepper/gray in the Tana Lawn Classic is the perfect way to shake it up. The small pattern, while not exactly a floral, comes in somewhere between a classic composition book cover and camouflage, and is equally at home in the back pocket of your jeans as it is the breast pocket of a suit jacket.

my inner Jackson Pollock. Liberty of London spatter fabric Vans. They somehow seem appropriate for kick-starting Spring. When it’s close to the end of April and it’s still cold and gray…well, ya gotta do what ya gotta do.
