You know those days when you have an outfit idea in your head and you think it's maybe a little kooky but then you put it on and you love it and you're dressed in 3 minutes flat? This was one of those days.

I was thinking of pairing my beloved stripes + floral, but I don't really have a pretty floral top that I love and I wanted to do stripes on bottom SO I opted for this floral dress. I wasn't sure if the shape would be weird but turns out it only made me look mildly lumpy/pregnant (I'm not) and I loved the colors together so I decided to call it good. And isn't that the goal most days, anyway? To get dressed in 3 minutes and still only look only mildly lumpy?

  1. This is one of the best pattern-mixing outfits I've seen. The pink cardigan makes it all work beautifully.

  5. 1) You do not look pregnant. You look darling. (Not that the two are mutually exclusive, but you know what I mean...)

    2) I love the grey/black and white with the pop of color. I think this is my favorite pattern mix outfit so far!

  9. "Mildly pregnant" . . . hahaha :-) Great outfit! I LOVE the skirt . . . I just bought some fabric to sew myself a skirt and now I'm even more excited to get started! I searched high and low for a striped knit, but couldn't find any :-( Where'd you get yours?

  19. Pattern mixing can be a scary world sometimes, but I think you really nailed it with the muted colors, it looks very soft and pretty and then the bright sweater really brings it together.

  24. I love how you kept your patterns in the same color family then added that pop of color with your cardi which I ADORE. If I were a color-namer, I would dub the hue Raspberry Sorbet. That makes me want to eat it.
