Fresh, Warm, Clean for 2017

screenshot-2016-12-31-15-42-01We love this look for New Year’s Day, featuring a soft modal scarf from The Teabag Project with original teabag art by Ann Laser custom printed and hand finished to order. A design collaboration with EncinoMom’s Lisa Keating, this new line of scarves and home décor are intended to promote world peace through inner peace. Taking this intention as a jumping off point, we’ve curated this look with the Prints For Peace scarf at its center.

A turquoise leather jacket and bright orange earrings against an outfit of warm neutrals is easy to wear across seasons and oceans. Fresh and feminine in just the right mix to meet your dreams in 2017. The Teabag Project’s peace scarf is also available in cashmere for $85. Purchase of products created by Lisa Keating for The Teabag Project benefit the artist, the designer and the makers with a portion of proceeds funding literacy projects. Purchases made before midnight 1/31/16 may use discount code: VIDA25-97669sbb for a $25 credit toward their first purchase!

Here’s an inspiration board including a collection of the items we have to work with and a few wish list pieces.

We’ll be posting the whole project, including before photos and updates to the vision board as we hone in on the design process. Finally, we’ll post the results when the project is complete.

It’s important to have input from the tween, engaging their imagination and empowering them, too. Of course, change is an inherent part of the process!

This is phase one: dreaming, planning and designing. Follow along as we undertake this project with an expected completion date of July 4th, 2014 – appropriately timed with Independence Day, don’t you think?

Inspired by this painting of a woman cycling in the city (ah, Paris), I put together some of the pieces you could choose to get this look. I love the cropped pant from the Gap – you need super slim or tucked in pant legs if you want to keep them from catching on your bike while you pedal! I’m inclined to choose the sweater or white blouse under the trench for myself. Younger women with fabulous arms would look great in the shell. Delicate jewelry is perfect for a bike ride, long earrings flapping in the wind can become uncomfortable. I’m speaking from experience here. 😉
