I’m not quite fashion adventurous enough to jump on the pattern mixing bandwagon just yet. It is another one of those trends that I love love love on other people but on myself I just feel like I look like I got dressed in the dark. I initially had a striped cardigan over the polka-dots to better imitate the inspiration photo but instead of looking beautiful and fashionable like Jessica does – I just looked like a crazy person who wandered out of a mental ward or a three year old who is allowed to pick out her own clothes. Not good.
Because the two patterns together weren’t working for me I took what I loved most about this outfit, the polka dots and the colors, and added a simple solid black cardigan so that I felt more comfortable with the overall impression of my outfit. And I really like the result – yay!
