WHAT I WORE | Pattern Play


This dress has been a very favorite of mine for a couple of years now. Found at the thrift store for just a couple of dollars, its pattern and shape make it pretty fun to mix and match with a variety of pieces from my wardrobe. This time I’ve thrown into the mix a patterned collared shirt, polka dot tights, and a plaid jacket. I pinned a vintage fur collar onto the jacket, and the look is complete! Much more interesting than just throwing the simple shift dress and leaving it at that. Although- I’m not opposed to easy outfits like that! This knit dress has been a life saver as my baby bump begins to grow, so I may or may not be wearing it more than twice each week…. :)

    I love how you do patterns! It’s a daring day for me if I have more than one pattern on. I love it on others, but I can’t seem to make heads or tails of it for myself. :)
