Tone On Tone Pattern Mixing

Posted on: October 23, 2015

One of the things that Alison from Get Your Pretty On, 

introduced to her style challengers this season was putting a look together with 

Tone On Tone.  

There was a sea of blush and burgundy in the malls that matched perfectly with this point.

I missed out on doing that with the challengers as our temperatures just didn’t cooperate 

for me to wear a blush chunky sweater, but I loved the idea of tone on tone.  

Of course I had to take it up a notch and add in Pattern Mixing.  

I felt quite adventurous using my lavender gingham blouse with my leopard spotted jeans.

I had recenlty unpacked some winter jackets and sweaters and couldn’t wait to style

an oldie but goodie in this very soft swing jacket.  

I’ve had it for several years and have worn it closed with the obi belt most times. 

It was fun to just wear it open for what may just be the first time.  

I needed the jacket despite warmer days beacause this was what I wore on homeschool bowling day

in whichI always freeze as the alley is cold.

I don’t think I will ever tire of my Diane Gilman purple leopard jeans. 

I certainly have gotten a lot of use from these over the few years I’ve owned them. 

One reason I love this brand is that depsite my weight gain, there is enough stretch that 

I can still wear these and others by this brand.  

Dear Readers, Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!  

I hope you have some fun things planned to reboot your spirit to dig in and face the dreaded Monday….

Tonight we are heading out to a bowling birthday party,Saturday mornings are my son’s bowling league, not sure Saturday night  plans as of yet,

but Sunday is of course Football! 

Thanks for Stopping By , I hope you are inspired to try your own Tone On Tone version.

Some ideas I’d like to try 

Mint and Forest Green

Tan and Chocolate Brown

Peach and Orange

Grey and Black

Powder Blue with Navy

Any of these Tone on Tone Ideas Appealling to You?  

Bloggers love to know someone is reading their content,

Gratitude

I am grateful for a fun phone conversation with my daughter where we were coming up with healthy options for her to take for lunches and to eat for breakfast.  Graduate school and her internship are keeping her busy and her brain is fried, so it was a fun conversation reminding her of things she has used in the past with success.  

I am grateful for the witnesses in our lives who are outraged when someone treats you poorly. I love being that outrage for others and appreciate greatly when I receive the same… Sometimes we just need a witness to our pain.  

I am grateful to my hardworking husband who has a wonderful work eithic , which allows me to be home with our youngest in this homeschooling venture that just fell into our lives. 

I am grateful that I have begun Christmas shopping and have some of the big presents set already, as the last minute rush is not my style.   

I would like to End today with a prayer reauest for this strongest Hurricane Patricia in the headlines, that is heading to Mexico, for the safety of residents.

I am so loving your pants, Tracey! Love that you paired them with gingham. Tone on tone is something I always forget about – thanks for the reminder.
