Today we explore the question: how many tassels is too many tassels? Because too many of a good thing is not a good thing, right? I've got tassels on my shirt, hanging from my bag, and on my earrings. For me, this look works - it feels festive and I would wear it to the beach. It's also possible I'll look back on this outfit someday and think it was one (or twelve) tassels too many. Time will tell... in the meantime, I'm having fun!

It may come as no surprise that I prefer my clothes colorful! (The more colorful, the better, usually.) But there's another type of outfit I love, and that's busy neutrals. Little hints of color like turquoise, cut outs on a dress, printed leopard shoes, a black and white pattern on my earrings and the fringe on my purse. All those busy little details combined together make just as much magic as color - maybe even more so!

I call these my fiesta earrings because they are bringing the party to this outfit. They were on backorder for the past two months so when they finally arrived this week, I dove right in and created this look around them. (And yes that's a bandage on my right hand - I took a nasty spill while out for a jog and will be on the mend for a few days unfortunately!)
