“Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.” ― Coco Chanel
This particular ensemble was the later-in-the-week continuation of the birthday celebration I’d mentioned here. It was essentially a dessert run but the restaurant we initially planned on going to was closed for renovations on arrival. That meant a quick change of location and since the new place was less fancy, it meant my pearl necklace had to come off and like magic, my outfit was sufficiently scaled down.
Although this is my go-to combination I was especially proud of myself this toss because I took a chance on combining prints.
Stripes and snakeskin just seemed to make sense somehow and added a little interest to what I was wearing. These days, if it doesn’t match, I’m more likely to wear it.
If all goes according to plan I’ll be mixing patterns in my clothes soon.
Do you like to mix patterns?
