Playful Patterns





Shirt (Green Envelope find at TJ Maxx); Skirt & Necklace (Limited); Shoes (Naturalizer);
Watch (Fossil); Earrings (Nordstrom)

There's something playful, unexpected, and slightly rebellious about mixing patterns and textures. In a typical work day filled with meetings, conference calls, and powerpoint presentations - sometimes you need a bit of fun and life to help you power through.  It may sound ridiculous to some, but there are times my outfit helps get me through the day.  There has to be a help line or medication for this type of disorder...  Although I'm sure it's nothing a little retail therapy can't cure  :)

I totally get your point. I have a boring conservative job too and having on a fun outfit that makes me feel brighter is the difference between an okay day and a good one! You look fabulous!

These patterns look like they were made for one another! You have such a great eye for colour/print combos, this is just another beautiful example of that. Also loving all that gold jewelry, offsets it perfectly and gives it a touch of edgy elegance!

No thats not weird at all!! In fact its something that helps me regularly :) Even if I'm feeling Im having a terribleee day but I feel I look fabulous in a new outfit or Ive styled differently then it indeed helps me get through (hey, its a bad day but at least we look great). I love the boldness with these particular patterned mixes though.
