First attempt, pattern mixing

Here is my first attempt at really mixing patterns.  After looking at the photos of this outfit, I realize that I should have worn heels because I look short.  I could have tucked in my shirt to cut my body to thirds so that I really looked taller.  I didn't wear heels because my poor little feet were ravaged by those heels I wore.  Also, I have decided that this lip color is not appropriate for day wear.  Its too dark and too berry. 

 I wore this on Friday, to work and that was it.  Embarassingly enough, I got home on Friday and was thrilled to have a free night (I operate optimally when I have a good balance of social functions and alone time).  I made myself dinner, and at 7 pm, decided I would take a little nap before I started on some sewing projects.  I woke up at 9:30 pm.  I realized I had pushed myself pretty hard this week, staying out way later than usual, but really?

This week I am dog-sitting for a friend (who we happen to have similar styles, same size, AND same shoe size).  I cannot wait to shop her closet and I am already picking out the outfits I want to do.  I'm not even sure why I brought clothes with me other than to be polite.  Don't worry, she gave me full permission to wear whatever I wanted.  (YES!!!)

Argyle pixelated gray cardigan: Roxy
Blue v-neck t-shirt: Urban Outfitters
Blue and white floral high waisted shorts: Urban Outfitters
Gray sweater tights: Target
Black suede flats: Old Navy

And yes, welcome to my first weekend post.  This will be a rarity but I kind of want to see how it goes and also, I'm not a huge fan of this outfit so I don't mind "wasting" it for a weekend post just to test it out.


  1. I think you are being too hard on yourself. I like this. The mixed prints. Tights and shorts (always a fave).... and who doesn't want to look short some times? Maybe that's just me. :P

  2. I like this one, especially the shorts! I just found you via the Ready Made post on the Uniform Project. All you girls going for sustainable fashion rock. I'll be checking back all the time!
