Mixing Patterns

I have always wanted to mix patterns for a cool outfit.  But it is tricky business, as if it's not done right, it can go very wrong, so I haven't tried playing with patterns much.  When I purchased this anthropologie skirt a while ago, I was pairing it with plain sweaters, and i thought it was too boring.  So I am giving pattern mixing a try today!!

Not the best combo, but I am happy with the result, it's a good weekend look.

Colorful Pleats

One of my all time favorite blogger Song of Style featured this dress on her blog back in January.  I was so excited as it was only $28 and available.  I can not compare to her in the combination of the bike, bag, and colorful background.  Since I love this skirt like dress that is flowy and comfortable, I thought I would give it a little New York weather for the office twist.

Dress and Leather

I love biker jackets, but I just don't know how to pull it off cool enough.  Let's face it, I am not tough, and I am not gonna pretend, so I thought why not make it feminine with a dress!!!  I picked up this leather jacket on sale at zara, it was another one of my impulsive purchases.  When the idea of pairing with dress came to me, I had to try it out!!!!
