Freckles in April: Pattern Mixing

Pattern Mixing

Target top and watch, Wet Seal skirt, Steve Madden sandals (via Marshalls), Charming Charlie studs

I'm not a particularly loud dresser. I mean, I strive to look put together but I'm not pushing any boundaries or breaking new ground over here. Most of my outfits don't merit a second glance from passers-by. But this one? There was this guy at Wal Mart who did a triple take, raised an eyebrow, then shrugged as if he just could not understand what was going on over here. It was kind of funny given the source (total People of Wal Mart candidate). But seriously. This outfit was shrugged.

Whatever. My mom liked it.

ANYWAY. How did you fare? Let's see it!

Don't forget to go visit the lovely ladies over in the Flickr group as well!

  7. I'm loving it. I've been off kilter by the pattern mixing fervor going on amongst the blogs I read, and I'm still trying to work myself up to it! It's definitely helping to see all the evidence of cute paired patterns!

  16. I love it! It's not a loud outfit so much as an assertive one. :) Ooh, have you seen the People of Walmart website? Sooo funny. I doubt you'd ever be put on that site, you are much too put together!

  17. Maybe us fashion bloggers are more used to this type of outfits, because I don't think this is loud at all! I think it looks great!
