Stripes on Stripes-Pattern Mixing

Posted on: June 10, 2013

I saw this concept in June’s Instyle Magazine and thought, I could do that!  You’ve gotta love inspiration, we need all the help we can get as bloggers to keep going each day…

Linking Up today with Style Elixer, so check out the other wonderful bloggers!

IMG_0366This was the quickest photo shoot ever!  It was cloudy and the thunder was rolling and lightening bolts were regularly filling the sky…Literally two seconds after this photo , the rain began!

This look is mostly thrifted, except for the green wedges by Chadwicks (bought last year), the necklace from Ebay and the navy belt is from a corduroy skirt that no longer fits… The top is by Liz Claiborne, thrifted for just $2 from Goodwill and the skirt is one of my most recent purchases and is by Merona from Goodwill.  This purse is among one of my most favorite ones from thrifting and perfect for summer.  I’ve always loved the color green and am so happy it is in for this season!

I love these easy casual skirts for Summer, they are so comfortable and practical for My Mom On the Go lifestyle.  I wish I had more of these elastic easy waist ones… Maybe I could make a few???

Dear Readers, So this is Day two of my week of stripes.  I have to say , never having tried stripe on stripes before ,that I rather liked this and would do it again!  Come back tomorrow and see what I do next with stripes… It’s weigh in day on my journey to find my goal weight, which I keep changing my mind about.. more on that tomorrow!  Have you ever worn the Stripes on Stripes look?  Would you be willing to try it now??  

Gratitude

I am grateful that the testing to meet state requirements for homeschooling  is going well.  We are halfway through!  

I am grateful that the rain held out just long enough for me to get a few photos. 

I am grateful for the rain and the cooler temps, with less humidity

I am grateful that my husband was able to sleep in today and go to work later.

I am grateful to readers who take the time to leave comments that cheer me on in this blogging journey!

I am grateful that the Tornado Warning that we were under didn’t turn out to be anything, despite the fact that at one point it was heading directly toward my area!

Ooh! I really like this double stripe look, especially in the greens. I have really been loving green lately 🙂
