Risky Business

This morning on the Twitter I mentioned that I was wearing an argyle sweater, a striped shirt and polka dot socks in an attempt to pattern-mix like all the fashion bloggers are doing nowadays.  And that I felt foolish.  After posting a few pics, Twitterland assured me I looked fine – but that the socks may have been overkill.  Fair enough.

Feeling all fashion forward and bold, I then threw on a pink, leather rose-shaped ring my mother brought me back from her travels.  Oh, you read right.  A pink, leather, rose-shaped ring.  Moving right along…

I pretty much wear the same thing every day.  A pair of pants, a tank top, and a cardigan.  Lighter fabrics when it’s warm, heavier when it’s cold.  But pretty much the same thing.

This week I’ve broken out of my rut – a little.  Tuesday I wore this dress (in green) with brown tights and boots.  I think it’s too short to wear to work again but guess I’ll wear it on the weekends.  Today I went “wild” and mixed patterns.  That’s all I’ve got to give.

I need to shop my closet, come up with some new combos, and expand my style just a wee bit.  Any tips, hints, suggestions?  How do you shake up your wardrobe when you’re bored with the contents of your closet – buy something new or work with what you’ve got?

Mix it up!

Why does my hand look so freakishly large?!? Never mind. Just check out my leather ring bling!

    the shirt and sweater look fine together and are the socks showing? if so, they may be doing too much lol. The ring is very cute.

    I hardly ever feel in a style rut. I live in southern cali and I can wear maxi dresses everyday unless it starts raining lol

  2. I like the shirt and sweater together. I try to switch it up with accessories, like a chunky necklace or different earrings. Small changes can make a big difference-like a new shade of lipstick or eyeshadow.

  3. I definitely go shopping….even when I know I don’t need to. I’m trying to resist the urge but looking at the pic of your sweater\shirt combo (which is all things super cute by the way) made me remember that I need to get some more structured collared shirts.

    I like the ring. It’s different. Different is good.

  4. if it ain’t broke, why fix it?
    i think that’s a good combo – though i would love to see the whole thing with the socks.
    from a fashion perspective – i sometimes like doing the unexpected, the socks sound that way.
    love the ring.
    when i’m bored…i buy shoes and plan an outfit around it. shoes are my weakness!
    sometimes i do my hair different also.

    have fun!!!
