Basic Blue and an Animal Print Shoe



Mostly because I like rhyming:



And pattern mixing.  Which I guess means this look isn’t really basic blue: 




But, honestly, in spite of the mixed print blouse (Banana Republic) paired with the polka dot blazer (Pendleton “Country Sophisticates, thrifted) and the animal print shoes (80%20 via Piperlime) this feels like a very basic outfit to me.  I mean, it's just jeans (Banana Republic), blouse and blazer, but it doesn't feel boring.  

Thank goodness for pattern-mixing.

Happy Thursday, All!

  8. That's a really cute blazer and I definitely don't think it looks like a simple outfit at all. Great pattern mixing and keeping it unique. It would be a totally different look with just a plain white scoop neck underneath. You probably wouldn't be very satisfied with that. Neither would I!

  9. Its basic, but very well put-together, Gracey. I really love those jeans, they have a trouser-like look; a notch up from regular day to day jeans.

  14. Happy Friday! I can't really keep up sometimes.

    Those little polka dots are so versatile, and pattern-mixing really does and zing to a simple combination. I can't really see the shoes, but they look cool. I need to get some - animal print shoes seem to be this year's red.
