Subtle Mix

Dress (Gap); Shirt (Old Navy); Tights (Nordstrom); Earrings (Macy's);
Shoes (Nine West)

Today's pattern mixing is brought to you by a button down and sweater tights. Sweater tights are the secret weapon to wearing dresses/skirts in winter... so warm and cozy!  I felt unbalanced without a pattern on top, plus the open shirt helps bring a more casual vibe to this look. Sometimes I feel like I'm constantly dressing for a fabulous party I'm never invited to...  But should I ever get invited, I'll be ready at a moment's notice! If success is when preparation meets opportunity - I'm halfway there :)

I might be moving to Canada in the summer of 2013, and they have a beautiful yet chilly autumn season. I love seeing fall inspiration posts/videos. Your tip on sweater tights is really helpful - I love dresses in deep, rich colors and wearing them during the chillier seasons is practical with sweater tights!

Lovely blog, dear! I've followed you. All your outfits are so lovely and I can't wait for updates.

Feel free to check out my blog if you'd like to. xo
