I was rather into pattern mixing last week. I don't know what brought that about, but it is interesting how outfit ideas come to me. Sometimes I will flat out copy someone else, sometimes I take an inspiration and make it mine. Other times, like with this, it comes to me totally on my own accord. I was actually thinking about a prompt from another blog to wear a chambray shirt with a floral skirt and it got me to thinking about my floral skirts. Being that this one has black, the idea popped into my head to wear my black polka dot popover with it. And so another Sunday church outfit was created.
 
When I put it on, something was missing. Ah, necklace. I was running a bit behind so this was the best I could do. I'd like to have a statement necklace with  a bit more color to go with this, but mint worked.

Happy Memorial Day! Sorry I didn't bring you a red, white and blue bar-b-que outfit. I did bring a little white and blue to the blog. I was inspired the this lady to put these pieces together.
 
Hope you are having a fun relaxing day!

Again

I promise I don't wear this blazer more than once a week. You are seeing it and some other pieces on repeat this week because I got out of order with my posting.

But if I did wear it more than once a week, who cares? I love it. And I loved it paired with this equally bright green skirt. The Target top was the perfect piece to bring the two together.

Happy Friday! and Happy Memorial Day. For most of us in the U.S., that means a long weekend. May we not forget how hard earned this one was for all of our veterans.

Pattern Mixing

I got a little bolder with pattern mixing. I think it works when you stay in the same color family. I realize this isn't for everyone, and I wouldn't do this every day, but I liked how this turn out. I was actually inspired by the online JCP catalog showing this top with a patterned skirt.
 
By the way, I allowed myself one substitution after thirty days in my capsule and this is it. I replaced the patterned pencil skirt with this one. That other skirt just doesn't fit well and isn't comfortable. Even if it fit well, it's too high waisted for my short torso. So be looking for the other skirt on Poshmark soon if you are interested.

The silver shoes were a last minute decision. I had originally planned to wear black pumps but then I thought about the silver shoes and decided they would go nicely with the grey blazer. I'm glad I decided on them, even though I got a strange look from security at my office building. Then again the same guy was looking at my "field" footwear the next day, so maybe he has a shoe or foot fetish.
 
I know I'm always vague about work but it's a policy to not discuss or list our place of work on social media, so I keep the details off the blog. I know that I've referred to field attire before, and while I can't explain it's purpose, let's just say it's functional but not fashionable so you will never see it here.  Curiosity is killing you , isn't it?
