Pattern Play


Well, well, well. It’s clear now that Friday’s Five for Friday post from last week (here) was clearly a set up and the perfect segway to this outfit post, right?

Because it is a pattern palooza indeed up in here (up in here – channel your inner DMX). Last time I wore this skirt, it was a bit more subdue (see that look here – same necklace used though!). Nothing like a little mix of blue and white and florals and stripes to get your week going, right?

I had a great weekend, and I’m sad for it to come to a close, but I only have 9 more work days until our upcoming vacation to Portland and Seattle. We’re headed out there to celebrate a wedding for two friends, but we’re hoping to get our fill of the Northwest as well. Any recommendations or suggestions for us when we’re out there?!


  • You look gorgeous! I shy away from mixing patterns, so you are an inspiration! :)

    I love how all of the shades of blue complement each other!

  • Florentina Scusi

    Such a great outfit! So chic!

  • I love the skirt and top together. I’m amazed at how close the two blues are even though they came from different places. Looks awesome. Enjoy the Northwest!

  • I didn’t know you were coming to the Northwest! I live in Seattle, so depending on what neighborhoods you’re staying in/exploring, I may have some recommendations! I’m obsessed with this outfit…love blues and mixing stripes and florals!

  • Love the pattern mixing all in the blue color scheme!

  • I LOVE that skirt! I’d highly Multnomah Falls outside Portland. It was gorgeous and our favorite part of our trip out there! (

    I’m always in favor of a little print mixing!

    Love this outfit, looks great!

  • This is definitely one of my all time favorites of your outfits. You look gorgeous!!

  • LOVE this. Such a fun palette.

  • that top & that skirt look like they were meant to go together! but it doesn’t feel too overwhelming with the classic jean jacket! i definitely look forward to hearing about your trip, seattle & portland is a dream destination!
