Mixing Patterns

Although I like to match often, I like to play around with patterns, as well. I also try to plan by outfits ahead of time (look at the weather, what I haven’t worn in awhile, etc.). The keyword is try. I tend to think about outfits, and may have some idea, but when i put that outfit on the next morning, I find reasons to why I don’t want to wear the outfit.

I decided to wear my striped, thin, sweater from H&M for the top portion of my outfit. Similar sweaters can be found here, and here. I do love this sweater, it is light enough that I have worn it with shorts, on a summer night, or with fleece leggings in the middle of the winter.

With my sweater, I wore my boyfriend, skinny ankle, jeans from Old Navy. Similar jeans can be found here, and here. I rolled up my ankles so there was about an inch between my booties and cuff.

I like to mix patterns, and floral and stripes are good patterns to mix. This black, floral, scarf, from Target, has hints of burgundy, green, and blue within the print, and will be able to be paired with multiple outfits. I chose this scarf with my outfit to bring a subtle print to my outfit. Similar scarves can be found here, and here.

For my shoes, I paired white canvas sneakers from Target with my outfit. Similar sneakers can be found here, and here.

One new accessory I just got in the mail a few weeks ago, is this pair of clear eyeglasses. I used EyeBuyDirect to order two pair of frames with my eyeglasses prescription. I’m totally into the “trend” of clear eyeglasses, and found EyeBuyDirect as a cool, and affordable way to have multiple pair of eyeglasses!

Lastly, I wore a liquid matte lipstick, from Younique. Younique’s Splash Liquid Lipstick in Sentimental gave my outfit a pop of color.
