Houndstooth with a Pop of Color

Houndstooth is one of my favorite prints! I think I first fell in love with it with No Doubt's iconic "Hey Baby" music video, which came out a long time ago, so I might be dating myself. Anyway, I loved Gwen Stefani's head to toe houndstooth look in that video and I have been trying to find a way to duplicate it with my own twist ever since! My outfit here features a smart houndstooth blazer and, while it might not scream "rockstar, it is work appropriate yet still fun and playful thanks to some pops of color with my J. Crew Hayden pants, Kate Spade Taxi Flats, and colorful clutch! Below, you can shop some similar houndstooth blazers that I love.

Speaking of dating myself, I took these photos at a scenic college campus, which brought back memories of my college days. I used to feel like I wasn't that far removed from college students and could fit in not that long ago. However, in the last five years, especially since turning 40, I have now realized how I am closer in age to their parents than to them! While I used to keep up with the latest movies and music, I'm now very out of touch with popular culture. (Does anyone care about No Doubt anymore?) Still, like a fine wine, I like to think that I'm getting better with age! Getting back to Gwen Stefani, I think that she's one celebrity that has aged well, so maybe I can follow in her footsteps in both fashion and in aging gracefully!
