Welcome to the weekend round-up! It’s all about coloring blocks and mixed patterns this time around.
Day 15: Color Blocking
Does it still count as color blocking if I add a print on top? I was cold! And I liked the color combo here. Oh well, I guess the point was to find a new-to-me outfit, not follow the rules 100% right. 😉
Did you notice? My feet! My NEW BOOTIES. Yessss. My very first pair of shoes that I have purchased online, without trying on first. And they fit! Thank you Target!
Here’s a close-up, because they’re wicked cute.
Flannel shirt: Old Navy, Blue V-Neck Tee: American Apparel (two years old), Corduroys: Lauren Conrad (thrifted), Belt: thrifted, Booties: Mad Love Lenora (via Target), Hat: Gift, Cartouche necklace: Gift
Day 16: Pattern Mixing! My old nemesis.
I’ve had more practice since last month’s epic struggle, so I had a fairly good idea of what I would end up with. Here’s the look:
It’s hard to tell from the photo, but the top actually has thin stripes. So stripes + whatever that pattern is called on my wool skirt = pattern mixing!
I wasn’t sure about the sweater at first, but I actually think I like it better with (which was convenient, since it was FREEZING today!). I’m actually really liking this look – I would totally wear it again.
