dotty, put a bird on it, and glitter

fashion blog, ootd, what to wear, outfit ideas, green tights, bird-print shirt, zara, gray pencil skirt, workfit, business casual, creative young professional, work wear, dash dot dotty, boots
[wearing]
bird-print shirt: zara (exactly)
skirt: thrifted
tights: simply vera (similar)
boots: target+some sparkle paint(similar)


number of bird species on this shirt that i can identify: 0


creative: this shirt is actually fairly colorful and whimsical.  and i'm totes wearing olive green tights with it.  
young: these boots are definitely more casual and therefore feel younger to me for some reason.  maybe it's because i painted the heels with silver glitter craft paint.  oh yeah, that must be it.  
professional: check.  (gray pencil skirts are almost always professional.)


catch up on the whole creative young professional series of outfits over yonder.

friday five: pattern poll

pattern mixing, adventures in wearing patterns, mixing prints, fashion blog, creative young professional, dash dot dotty


everybody's read the standard tips for pattern mixing: stay in the same color family, combine different scales of patterns, stripes go with everything, and such.  this "cloud print" dress (they look more like badges to me, but maybe other places have perfectly geometric clouds and i'm just missing out) has been hanging around in my closet trying to befriend other patterns.  i've been trying to figure out what to pair it with, and while the rules of pattern mixing provide some inspiration (see above), i want to attempt to be a little more creative with this. so, i need some help from any professional pattern mixers out there to help me decide which of these works and which is a little too anthro-catalog-explosion-ish.  there's even a vote box below!

dotty, architects, and wearing black

all black outfit, statement necklace, joie dress, dress and long cardigan, stone collection
[wearing]
dress: joie
cardigan: old navy
boots: target
rock collection/statement necklace: forever21

i was feeling less-than-creative this morning, but i knew i wanted to wear this chunky rock collection necklace.  hence, i defaulted to my profession's uniform: all black.  while i've avoided this before today it seemed kinda perfect for spending a quiet day at the office.
