Stripes and Floral… Because I Could

The only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize. – Clairee in Steel Magnolias

You know how some things just feel right? This is actually my second time wearing this outfit. Yes, when I love them, I wear them multiple times. Unapologetically.

I can still remember that moment of brilliance (or madness) when I decided that these stripes really could work with this floral print belt. It was a little riskier than anything I see in my office on a daily basis but… I liked it so I wore it.

Truth be told, this outfit is simply me. It’s comfortable, has some colour (and a belt) and is still professional. It’s also a very easy and not too obvious way to ease into mixing prints. I guess I like using stripes as a base. Last time I mixed stripes with snakeskin.

Do you have any unusual combinations that just feel right to you?
