Pinch Hitter

 



Blouse (Banana Republic Outlet); Skirt (Limited); Shoes (Franco Sarto find
at Marshalls); Belt (Target); Earrings (Nordstrom)

It wasn't until another blouse I wanted to wear was in the laundry that I thought to pair this top and skirt together. So this top is essentially the pinch hitter of this outfit (which I think means substitute)... And would that make my original blouse the designated hitter?  And does the combo of the two bold prints equal a double play?  I'm started to give myself a headache. All I know about the game is that it's much better with peanuts and beer... and there's no crying in baseball - even when your designated hitter is out of commission ;)

Um- Loving this combination! I love that it is two large scale prints together. So fun. And I think your pinch hitter should replace whatever designated hitter you were going to use.

The two bold prints really work terrifically well together! Such a great combination and something I would never have thought of :) Love that you left the bow untied too, it gives the top a whole different look!

It works! For a second, I thought the dress was dip-dyed (I have dip-dyed stuff on the brain right now!), but then I realized it was two separate pieces. Too cool!

Oh how I love this outfit! Seriously, I scrolled through the pics with my mouth open - I LOVE pattern mixing (wearing two patterns today myself!). Gorgeous look!

I would never look at those two items and think they go together, but you totally made them work. Makes me think of all the possibilities I am overlooking in my closet!

Thanks for your sweet comment on Everything-Pretty!

I love the mixing of prints here. It's bold and makes quite the statement with the contrasting colors. I think you just inspired me to get a little more daring with my print mixing. And pairing it with the nude pump was a great choice. Lovely!

You are becoming an even better writer! I love your writing style! (Random compliment but i thought you deserved it) This outfit is killer! Loving the two prints together! Your closet must be a treasure chest filled with amazing goods! Oh and your hair is looking ultra shiny and breezy, did you switch shampoos? And thanks for the comment! I really loved the outfit from my post today... I was all excited to be in sneakers vs heels!

Hello Heather,
Great print mixing, so original and well done. I loved how you referenced your clothes to the game of baseball, or is it golf ?
lol.. I don't watch either... Can you tell?
Your nude shoes go so well with you pairings.
Always,
Tarah and the City

No, the designated hitter bats in place of the pitcher. This outfit is a spirited mix of prints.
