Day 3

Today is pattern Mixing.

Here's the look:


This skirt is kind of bold in and of itself, which is why I usually pair it with a simple cream or black shirt. But today, I decided this bright blue poke-a-dot shirt could be the ticket to a new look, and I think it worked. I just love this skirt, but I felt so limited in what I could wear with it. Now, the wheels are spinning with possibilities. The rule of thumb these days (at least in my book) is anything can go as long as it's paired with confidence. Isn't confidence generally the key to most things in life?

If this wasn't bold enough for you, just wait until tomorrow's look.

If there is one thing that this challenge is teaching me, it is that I need more lace and more polka dots. And apparently I need them together, because this looks awesome!
