Day 172 -- Printed Lady
When: Tuesday, February 19th, 2013
Where: Parents house, walking around Bol Park
When I came downstairs, my mom gave me the once over and said, "So you're wearing, one, two... three patterns? Okay." That's just what I do. I will always feel bad about telling her friend, Kay, that she wasn't allowed to mix prints. As I recall, she was wearing a pair of lovely brown pants with a patterned weave, and a coordinating printed shirt in brown as well. I was about 14 and felt I was the local authority of fashion. I think I may have spoke too soon... Mixing prints is the best!
I know I really disparaged of wearing pants in the past, however, since starting working from home -- a drafty, cold home at that! -- pants have become my favorite go-to outfit starter. I've found that I love all kinds of pants, leggings, jeans, colored and printed denim, slacks, sweats -- I love them all! I do feel a bit like I'm cheating when I wear pants though... like this outfit was just a bit too easy.
