did i mention that i was uncomfortable? maybe i didn’t. in case i didn’t, i was soooo nervous about this challenge.
in all my years of dressing myself, successfully i might add, i never imagined that mixing patterns was appropriate. like AT ALL. if you wear a print shirt, you wear solid pants. if you wear a skirt with a print, you wear a solid shirt. i mean duh, how does that not make sense? and how in the world do all these gorgeous pinterest models look so good wearing a striped shirt AND a flower print skirt? how?
so i found myself at kohl’s yesterday (with a $10 off anything coupon). inbetween asking marshall to please stop getting stuck in the racks and trying not to laugh when he would “pretend to lose me” just to get a laugh out of the other shoppers of the lady persuasion (yeah, he’s a ladies man!), i managed to pick up a shirt that was a) on sale and b) a print/style/color that i had been attracted to lately. i had no real plans for it, specifically.
but when i got it into my closet, my eyes went immediately to a pink and cream pinstriped skirt that i love and have had forever. a brown or white solid shirt is my usual go to top with this skirt. but holding it up against my new shirt, i kinda squealed in delight.
could it work? would it match? will i look like a complete idiot wearing stripes and flowers together in the same outfit?
you be the judge?
