Grown Up Style (finding my new look)

A few months back, I talked about

my grown up style icons

.  Now I'm 31 and a mom and I just went through my wardrobe again, weeding out a lot of sequiny pieces that represented who I was in my 20s.  I am trying to move to a more sophisticated, more minimalist look, like the photos below (and all of the fashion photos I've pinned lately).  The problem is, I am still so attracted to bright, happy colors and bold prints.  The challenge I've given myself is to strike a balance between my two personalities, the cool Rag and Bone chick and the girly Kate Spade girl.  Anyone have thoughts on a style icon who fits this description?
