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?
