Dots and Plaid and lots of Brown.

    This post went up ever so briefly by accident a few weeks ago.  Sometimes I create posts but end up never posting them for whatever reason, but usually that the photos didn't turn out so well or that I wasn't happy with the outfit or that I just never get around to finishing it. In this case, it was the first two excuses, but since I may not have a post in the next little while, here ya go!

      I'm pretty handicapped when it comes to mixing prints and patterns. I don't have that many in my closet and when I do have them, I'm boring and just match them with solid colors. Some people manage to do it really well but I, on the other hand, look like I got dressed in the dark. We gave it a good college try today, however, I cheated a bit and added a solid brown sweater over top so the dots were just an accent. Doing it in small doses is really the safest way of mixing patterns and prints and keeps it looking professional at the office. 

Trousers: Forever21 (Brown plaid, size XS).
Blouse: Ann Taylor Silk Polka Dot blouse (Navy/White, size XSP).
Sweater: Jacob (Brown, size XS).
Clutch: Botkier Charlotte (Black).
Boots: Coach Letty Wedge Boots (Black, size 6.5).

     Much better! But I'm wearing a heck of a lot of brown. My three sweater limit this season is killing me! Oh how I'd love to buy a bright colored sweater to wear with this outfit. =(

    I really like these plaid printed pants, but I really wish the material was heavier to give it more structure. They're Forever21, so I can't expect much. I'm thinking about adding a fusible interfacing in the inside so they would drape better, but I'm unsure of what would result.
