Black & White Pattern Mixing

Posted on: February 22, 2016

I quite often say, “Black and White is Always Right”  when it comes 

to styling outfits, as I’ve never put that color combo together and not loved it!

I love everything about this look.  

Starting with the pattern mixing of this multi media foral print tunic (I found it on a flash sale on Jolly Chic, asian sizing , but so cute, a sweatshirt attached to a fun cotton skirted bottom)  amd the cozy azztec print sweater. 

The addition of the silver and black neclaces adds to the black and white theme. 

The texture and sheen of the leatherette leggings by Hue also adds a great element to the black and white theme, as does the fringe booties.

With this tunic having a nice skirted hem, it’s almost like wearing a fun skirt ,

which put a pep in my step. 

That’s not an easy thing to do , today, as my sinuses are way off and I feel disoriented.

I’ve noticed that this winter I have done a lot more outfits that qualify as boho , 

that’s a big change as in previous years I’ve felt that my boho side had to wait until 

Spring/Summer to come out to play.  

The fun of blogging and seeing my outfits allows me to see patterns and directions of my style. 

Of course everyone doesn’t need to be a blogger, but taking pictures is something anyone can do and

I highly recommend it. I have learned so much about how to dress my petite, curvy body from pictures.  

It’s been a very fun journey and to be at this point of more confidence is priceless. 

Self Care

I would have to say , I haven’t done much these past few days in self care, other than taking meds for 

the sinus issues that are present due to the crazy swings in our temps.   I skipped two days on my Pilates machine and am not happy about that at all…. 

Gratitude

I am grateful for my son apologizing and realizing he hadn’t spoken clearly about something. 

I am grateful that my son finally brought me his sign language course and we figured out the ins and outs of it as it was confusing to him and he was completely stalled on moving forward.   

I am grateful that after waking up at 5am , having breakfast at 7am that I went back to sleep and slept until almost noon! 

I am grateful that although I feel somewhat disoriented, that my pounding headache is gone!  

I am grateful for days of sunshine, cause rain is heading our way…

I absolutely agree with you about learning so much with the constant pictures of the outfits! Not that there’s never a miss, but you sure see them differently!
As for this outfit—Perfection…especially with the pink purse! jodie
