muted mixing

Sorry, all, for not having posted in a while. It's been a little stressful both at work and at home and I've found it difficult to get motivated to take pictures after work. It should get better this week!

(I mean, I got a new buffalo plaid dress that I DIDN'T DOCUMENT! And it's so cute! You'll definitely see it.)

Yesterday, Friday, was the end of a week full of glorious, unseasonably warm weather. We'd had heavy rainfall on Thursday, so I celebrated Friday's weather by - as usual - bike commuting. Along with my new buffalo plaid dress, I also got grey fair isle leggings (all from Old Navy. Again.) and yesterday I wore them under a short black dress. Confused as to what to do about shoes, I decided to wear my houndstooth slip-ons. It was all a little krazy klown, but by the end of the day, I dug it:

What do you think? Masterful pattern mixing or the output of a deranged mind? 

Anyways, my husband just took Baby Boots out for a walk, so I'm gonna watch some TV and strum a little ukulele.

Happy weekend!


  1. I actually love mixed patterns. It's a weird balance because there is good mixing, good-hideous mixing and just plain hideous mixing. How do you know which you have? I don't even know lol. I just assume they're all terrible but I love doing it still.

  2. I think that's the kind of funky pattern mixing that looks both deliberate and good. (It's hard to go wrong mixing patterns in black, white, and gray.) We, your readers, promise to tell you if you slip over in the deliberate-but-ahem-not-so-good category. :)

  3. Cassy, I think it's a slippery slope! I'm not sure if I have the guts to go further than this…

    Thanks, Sue! I'll hold you to that!
