In continuing the theme of mixing stripes and floral patterns, in this post, I’m wearing a top
with the pattern mixing already built-in. Makes it pretty easy to wear this trend. See the
last two looks here and here. Normally, I wear this wide cut top with skinny jeans for balance,
but decided to do it differently by pairing it with a maxi skirt. Since the weather has been
uncooperative, I created my own summer, by keeping the top untucked for a breezy look. I
resisted the urge to tuck and belt and I liked it. The accessories in various gold tones is what
pulls it all together. My favorite is a recent thrifted chunky acrylic ring with gold insert.
Isn’t it a beauty?! 2 rings in one, which I didn’t discover until I brought it home and started
wearing it. A score at $4. I’m keeping it real short, since my skirt has maxed out my brain
space and I’m incapable of writing anything clever today. Happy Tuesday!
