When I bought these trousers on the weekend, I was drawn to them because of the turquoise element in the plaid.
- Blouse - Scotch & Soda, Maison Scotch, vintage store, Vancouver; last seen here (2nd outfit) in July 2017 in a mermaid outfit
- Trousers - Cartonnier, Anthropologie, thrifted; purchased here for $15.00
- Shoes - Portia, thrifted; last worn here in May with my Princess Jelly-Deer outfit
- Capelet (below) - Floating Gold Iceberg, thrifted; last seen here (3rd outfit) in August 2017 for my trip to a sunflower farm
Instead of going all matchy with the pattern colours, as I was holding up the trousers to my blouse section of the closet, I noticed how nicely this blouse played with them.
I actually have a lot of pattern going on - the blouse's sleeves and back are a very pale (and sheer) pink, with tiny stars all over.
I love the top's pattern. Flamingos and carp and lotuses. Very tropical looking.
Although it was cooler today, I did need a wee cover-up in the morning and on the back of my neck on the way home. Enter capelet.
- Cuff - thrifted; first wear!
- Ring - local
- Earrings - furniture store
- Shield ring - Nine West
How daring are you when it comes to pattern mixing? Would you do a mix like this?
Love it all!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much!Delete
Fascinating mix! I am not very daring. LiseReplyDelete
I used to think that too, Lise. Go for it! Try something new!Delete
You're right, the prints all work so well together. I like the idea of finding pieces to wear with them but holding it up against other items in your wardrobe. I'm going to steal that idea, haha!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Mica! I've found so many interesting combinations just from holding them up against other clothes. Steal it!Delete
I am in love with that blouse, Sheila! It's fabulous! I love the pattern mixing with the pants. The blouse and pants complement each other so well. I love the turquoise too. I'm still pretty new to pattern mixing but I'm looking forward to trying more of it! ;) XXXReplyDelete
Isn't it cool? I loved it as soon as I saw it. I impressed myself with this mix, Sasha! I'm pretty new to it too (well, 8 years is new, right?). Give it a try!Delete
The trousers were a perfect match to that cool shirt ! Don't you just love it when that happens?ReplyDelete
And I do not know why they would make pockets and then close them with buttons.
It's such a rush, isn't it, Lorena? I knew you'd get that. Buttons on pockets are silly. Silly!Delete
Your trousers look great!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Rebecca!Delete
Aaaaah. This is beauty, this wonderful outfit on you. The pairing couldn't be better. And the capelet is just right for this pre-summer weather. Hugs.ReplyDelete
This blouse reminds me of you, since I bought it on one of our anniversary trips. Gotta love a capelet.Delete
Amazing pattern mixing!!!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Cynthia!Delete
You know I absolutely would! I adore this mix, the top with the plaid is just beautiful. I love that there are so many design elements to that top. The main design on the front, the pink sleeves , and the tipping at the collar . I adore this pattern play, I have a similar pair of plaid pants purchased secondhand by Chanel. I hope I will be able to wear them come autumn, they are pretty small.ReplyDelete
Go buy more turquoise!!!
Yes, it's a gorgeous piece - I love the sporty stripe at the neck. Thank you, Elle - ha, of course these are Chanel knock-offs! Can't wait to see yours.Delete
I love this mix, such a fabulous top with a fabulous print! and it enhances all the turquoise in the pants pattern! love this 'tropical plaid' outfit!ReplyDelete
Thank you - me too! I was so excited to come up with this combination.Delete
Who would have thought that plaid and a flower print would look so good together? Nice combination Sheila!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Shelley! I really liked it.Delete
