Where: Went to work and then cleaned my apartment the rest of the day.
I think this is the boldest pattern mixing I have ever done! I usually use a really subtle pattern with a very bold one, but today I felt very bold! So I thought: two bold patterns? Why not!
Even though today's look is bold, I think it works well because the striped cardi is a little bolder than the skirt. I kept the rest of the outfit very very simple (black accessories, simple jewelry, sleek hair, etc.) so that the pattern mixing would take center stage. I wasn't quite sure of the mix at first, but I felt better and better in it as the day progressed... in fact, I received several compliments on my boldness today! Yai!
