Mixing Paisley and Stripes

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

I bought this skirt from the J Crew Factory store this summer. At first glace, I figured I would wear it with a plain white blouse or plain orange blouse. The beauty of blogging, however, is that it forces you to step outside of your comfort zone when getting dressed. Although I do love how this skirt looks with a crisp white button down and a statement necklace, I was feeling a little more "fun" when I got dressed today.

So, I decided to do some pattern mixing. The stripes and paisley work here because they share a common color pallet. They also work because the skirt is a smaller print while the sweater is a larger print. (By the way this is the most perfect light-weight sweater ever created by Express.) I really love how the two look together. It is definitely a visually appealing outfit! I think this skirt would also look good good paired with some gingham :)

    1. Nhưng vào lúc này, ấn đường Nhạc Thành xuất hiện một mảnh hào quang bắn nhanh ra, nháy mắt đem Yêu Huyên, Thanh Đồng, Hồng Loan Đại Song Tiểu Song, Trần Vân lão tổ, Tôn Lương lão tổ, Vũ Văn Lê lão tổ vào trong đó, tùy theo ánh hào quang bạo bắn về phía trên bắt đầu chậm rãi tiêu thất cái khe không gian.

      - Lưu lại cho ta.

      Hỗn Thế Ma Vương trên mặt biến hóa, một cỗ hắc mang trong tay nhất thời hóa thành cự võng ngăn cản tại phía trước phiến hào quangdongtam
      game mu
      cho thue phong tro
      nhac san cuc manh
      tổng đài tư vấn luật
      văn phòng luật
      tổng đài tư vấn pháp luật
      thành lập công ty
      chém gió
      trung tâm ngoại ngữ, cả không gian đều bị hắc mang cự võng bao vây lại.

      - Xuy xuy.

      Nhưng chỉ trong một cái thở gấp mà thôi, hào quang trực tiếp trốn vào cái khe không gian biến mất không thấy.

      - Ma vương, bọn hắn chạy thoát, ta đi truy đuổi.

      Đoan Mộc Cuồng sắc mặt đại biến, hắn cũng thật không ngờ Nhạc Thành chạy trốn trong thông đạo không gian, đây chính là cổ nham kết giới.

  11. Hi Darcy,
    First of all, thank you so so much for your great words of advice on my latest post (satchel bag from eBay). I never thought someone would give me so many useful tips. So thanks a lot!
    Then I also wanted to let you know that I really love this outfit. I love mixing patterns together (even though it will result in weird looks from my sister). I love pockets in a skirt too! They're the best.
