pattern mixing

If anything, travel forces you to put on outfits you never would have worn, had you had a full range of selection from your closet. When it comes to outfits, I like to have one pattern, one bold color, one extreme place of interest. My worst fear is to look too busy. That being said, I hardly ever mix patterns.



but since everything I decided to wear was (mostly) neutrals, I decided that it was okay. Not to mention, this was the only scarf I brought along and it was too windy to go sans. I wore this yesterday and went shopping while Robert had class. It was a happy outfit for running around in. I'm happy I bought gel inserts for these shoes before I left though, since they're so flat.


And I adore this skirt. I thrifted it for .95 cents. It buttons all the way up the front, though you can't really tell from the pictures.

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a message. It means a lot, and I don't take it lightly. Each one makes me smile--though I won't just follow you simply if you follow me. So please don't ask.

By default, I take a look at every single person that comments.
