Look at that! I’m finally mixing some patterns and everything. I kinda thought I’d be pulling odd fashun-y combinations a lot more in this challenge, but then I went and picked a bunch of really boring basic pieces, and all the fashun-y potential went out the window. On the plus side, you should now have sufficient inspiration for the next 2 years’ worth of grocery trips. You’re welcome!

Anyway, speaking of patterns, I love this scarf but I can’t for the life of me figure out how to style it. I think I may have met my match. Kooky pattern, I admit defeat.

Were you ever been stumped by a pattern? Am I just a big whiny baby? (Two affirmative answers would not be mutually exclusive in this case, by the way.)

    • I like mixing patterns usually, but this one … oy vey! I think I’ll stick to the tried-and-true combo of florals + stripes.
      Thanks for checking out the blog 🙂

  1. I like the pattern a lot, but I know I wouldn’t know how to wear it other than with a white shirt, skinny jeans, and that amazing coat you’re wearing. I like it a lot with those stripes though!

    • Thanks lady! Believe it or not … I don’t have a white shirt at the moment. I KNOW! I’m actually in the market for a nice white tee, and I’ve been eyeing your Everlane ones. But getting stuff shipped to Canada is a pain, ugh.

    • Why?? Mixing patterns is fun. If you’re feeling self-conscious, just stick to tried-and-tested combos, like stripes and florals. Stripes and pretty much anything else works too 😉
