I think I almost pattern mixed today, maybe? Snake skin pumps, roses on a background of dotted print (which is too small to see) on the skirt, stripes on the blouse? A radical departure for me, anyway. This is outfit number two for Super Stripes Week.
I also added a fabric flower pin to my doubled strand of freshwater pearls. I think one of my antique rhinestone pins might have been a better choice. This one kept flipping around backwards, rendering most of my pics un-usable. Ah, the joys of self-photography, inside, in 10 minutes or less.

I’m excited that my total outfit cost less than $25 again, minus the shoes, which as you can see, I’m wearing the heck out of, so will likely be down to a $1 a wear by July.
Also, I am truly a fool for a full skirt.

Where do you stand on wearing prints and stripes together?
