Pattern Mix Surprise!
Happy day, reader dear!
Do you have #onrepeat outfits?
I don’t mean the can’t-be-bothered-yoga-pants-and-tee #onrepeat.
I mean an outfit that you LOVE and wear over and over again.
I do. And sometimes they come out of left field.
You know, you are just flipping through your closet and all of a sudden you think Why haven’t I tried those together before?
Or maybe you don’t. (PS: If that’s a problem, I might just be able to help… That’s what I do!)
What’s a great outfit feel like? In this case, the minute I put it on, I felt so completely and totally ME that it took even me by surprise.
How You’ve Seen Them Before
And MANY other ways, too…
Why I LOVE It
You know how kindergarteners dress? They put on all their favorite things together, regardless of whether or not they “match”. Velvet pointsettia Christmas dress with yellow duck rainboots and a purple unicorn headband. That’s a little bit how this outfit feels. A pile of favorites! I wanted to wear the floral blouse AND the leopard skirt. The studded shoes came later, but it feels like my Style Cocktail: Mischievous Femi-Modern and also like the place my Style Cocktail is evolving… Something along the lines of Cheerful Subversive. (One of the pluses of having AND using a personal color palette is that most everything will match. Why? That’s because in a palette, the colors share properties.)

How About YOU?
When you are looking for a new outfit, do you shop your wardrobe first? What surprises have you found in there lately? Are you a happy print/pattern mixer or is one pattern enough for you? What’s your favorite print/pattern? Are you an animal (print) lover? Partial to plaid? A fan of florals? (Can’t resist some alliteration!) Do you have two prints that share colors? How do they play together? Have you worked out your Style Cocktail? What is it? Do tell… I love to hear from you and I’ve saved a little corner of the interwebs just for you!
