Black & White Pattern Mixing- Polk a dots & Florals

Posted on: June 17, 2013

I decided to show today’s look in two ways… This was what I put on to wear for family outing to dinner…

The black and white trend can be done in so many ways and today, I decided to mix patterns for a more modern version of the trend..

As my husband was taking these photos,  it occured to me that these shoes are very much what I would choose to go out with the entire family, but what could I do to take this to a date night look???IMG_0528

I decided a simple switch into my newest thrift store shoes would do the trick.. Am I living up to my blog name today???

Well, of course my husband wholeheartedly agreed!  

Dear Readers, this was such an easy and fun transformation…. Look for more of those kind of transistions in the future…So for those of you who are mothers, can you relate to this idea at all?   Would this little trick work for your world?  Your comments are greatly appreciated and welcomed!  

Gratitude

I am grateful that I have my ten year old niece every other week for the summer.. I miss her so much during the school year!!

I am grateful for the walk (exercise) I took with my niece to the craft store looking for some summer fun!  

I am grateful that my brother has freinds looking for a cheaper way for me to get an entirely new heating/cooling system, which we were told today, needs replacing….

I am grateful for my strong faith and the fact that this “bad news” didn’t even phase me..

I am grateful that while the air conditioning repairman was here that he added coolant to my husband’s van.

These zipper shoes look even more amazing on that in the photograph you posted the other day! Definitely sexy date night shoes.

That’s what I thought when I saw them in the mirror at Goddwill!

This is pattern mixing done right. I love this outfit and both sets of shoes!

LOVE black & white on you!! You look gorgeous!

Thanks for linking up with Style Sessions 🙂
