Tuesday I wore my blue striped jeans and a blue striped button up shirt. I know, a lot of stripes! So I tossed a grey cardigan over top and it helped to cut down on the visual shock of too much stripes. It also helped that the stripes on my top are fine and more closely spaced. I think the louder and further spaced stripe works on my bottom half but wouldn’t work on my top if the pants were a smaller and thinner stripe.
I think I look kind of preppy and kind of nerdy and I wasn’t sure it would work until seeing the outfit in the mirror made me smile. That’s usually how I dress myself. I take risks and assess in the mirror if the risk works for me and my personality, all others be damned! If an outfit makes me smile no matter how zany, you better believe I’m going to wear it.
