Mix Master

Day 5! Pattern Mixing! This is a repeat challenge from the 21 day challenge (see our posts from the challenge here) but I didn't participate because I was slightly intimidated! I don't have a print skirt that seemed to make sense, and I don't have a striped cardigan (yet!!) so I thought I was out of luck! Fashion mental block! This morning it occurred to me that I don't have to mix my top with my bottom!!  2 shirts it is.

checked shirt: J Crew factory, striped shirt: Gap, pants: Express, shoes: Dansko

Claire's turn!  Who's happy it's the weekend? I definitely am! Today was jeans day at work....that magical day that happens only once a month! I realized that I don't have a patterned wardrobe and need to work on that.  Here's what I came up with:


Shirt: H&M, Jeans: Loft, Scarf: Target (on sale for $4.95!) Shoes: Sperry

A little stripes, a little plaid and a little leopard :)  My husband said that I look very British today....best compliment ever!

Have a great weekend!

I love how you tied the one button-up shirt at the waist over another button-up. It looks great on you.

i am starting to see more & more people layer two button-ups over each other and i love the spin you took on it by knotting the top layer!

These are both adorable outfits! I love the layered tops in the first one, and the detail on the shoes + scarf on the second!
