Plaid and Stripes

26 Oct

Today I had a breakthrough (maybe)!  I was going to wear something boring, and then I thought “NO!  Be brave, young one.  Take heart.”

And so I mixed patterns as well as colors.  The shirt, which you can’t really tell, has peach-colored pin stripe type dealies.  Like maybe if it were the right material it would be seer-sucker.  And the scarf (clearly) is plaid. Of sorts.  TRA LA LA.  I like that I was brave enough not only to mix brighter/whatever colors, but also los patterns woohoo!

Oh look, and a kitty!  Rubbing my leg.  Here’s a close-up of the shirt stripes in case you were just so curious:

    It works because the colors complement each other and because the pattern on the striped shirt isn’t calling out for attention. So you don’t look like some old golfer from the 1970s.
