Pink Plaid and Polka Dots

It’s no secret that I’m having a moment with pattern mixing, and honestly, I wish I could take credit for imagining today’s combination of plaid and polka dots out of thin air. But that would be slightly untrue, and I try to keep it real ’round these parts.

    I have never had inspiration while folding laundry…I guess I’m usually just trying to hurry up and get it done! But this look is fab!

    I love this combo–especially that skirt! Adding the pink gingham top made it a bit more fun and playful, but it still works perfectly for the office!

    I love this outfit because you were not afraid to mix prints and the color of the shirt adds the finishing touch!

      NICE! Glad to see it’s not just me! I think I bought mine quite a while ago, but I’ve seen some similar ones on etsy and ebay!

    I really like this combo. Seems like a very happy accident! I’ve yet to come across something like this but I’m usually keeping myself busy by watching TV while folding laundry…maybe I should start paying more attention!

    Too funny – nothing good every happens to me while folding, except getting a little warm on a cold day! Love the outfit and the pink gingham is adorable. Those shoes are also amazing – I don’t think I spotted them because I definitely would have snapped them up!

    Wow..love this outfit! Pattern mixing is an art and you nailed it here! And I so regret not getting prabal gurung for target shoes! He created a great capsule collection, didn’t he?
    BTW, I just realized from your blogger profile that u r in Richmond! I used to live there and we still own a place in West End! I miss good old sweet Virginia (and Virginians) here in New York!!
    Hope you are having a wonderful day!

    Oh I love this! And how nice to find it during laundry! I mean at least it adds a little spark to it. You look very pretty and I wouldn’t have guessed them together until I saw them here. So so pretty!

    Hi, I do feel your internet site may be obtaining
    world wide web browser compatibility issues. When I look at your net internet site in
    Safari, it looks fine however, if opening in IE, it has some
    overlapping issues. I just wanted to provide you a quick heads up!

    Aside from that, great website!
