pattern mixing

madewell top {old / similar style} . asos pants {old / similar style} . urban outfitters scarf {last seen here} . sam edelman boots . karen walker sunglasses . scervino street handbag {borrowed from mom / similar styles here + here} . essie nail polish in "find me an oasis"

There is something about this time of year that makes me start to feel a little antsy for warmer weather. I have been thinking about wearing these pants for weeks, weeks I tell you, but have restrained out of fear of freezing. With temps back up in the thirties this weekend I decided to pull them out of my closet, get it out of my system. There is a lot going on with this outfit - distressed pants, a striped top, plaid blanket scarf, floral purse - but I think it all goes together nicely in a weird little way. I rarely mix patterns aside from stripes and florals in the spring and summer, I may have gotten a little carried away.

I'm going to keep things short and sweet today as I'm a bit exhausted / sleep deprived.

Happy Monday, thank you so much for reading!

  4. Love a blanket scarf. Can't get enough of them. Even better, I love what you've done with the photos. You took away all of the color and tone saturation to give us a moody, wintery, almost haunting vibe. That is brillant. Really plays up the dark tones. Well done. I like how you mix it up your photos.

  6. I've been lusting hard after some jeans like these. I think you paired them well! Weather in the 30's is a high for you? Oh goodness, I'm happy I live in the south, lol! You are a brave, stylish soul.

  15. I don't think it's too many patterns, they're all subtle so they flow together nicely.
