I'm thrilled to debut a new feature: Street Smarts! There are many incredible street style blogs out there, but I think there's a need for showing off some of the incredible style of (extra)ordinary women. Not carefree women in their twenties, not college women, nor women in Europe dashing around to fashion shows. I want to showcase women who I know or who I meet who live regular lives-in style. Feel free to email me with pictures if you'd allow me to show you off here! Don't be shy!

I love how she matched the bright pink and yellow here with the demure pearls. Then the pearls matched with the edgier patterned pants and neutral shoes?
This is personal style at its best-nothing you would see put together in a store, interesting and memorable, but also wearable to a casual office, out to dinner, or to a birthday party or other event with friends. Thanks for sending in these photos!
Got an outfit you'd like to share? Email me at startclosein (at) gmail.com. Or, I might find you first!
