What I Wore 74: Pattern Mixing

Pattern Mixing | Freckled Italian

I don't know if I love a skirt more than this one, which is why it's continually made the cut as I've gotten rid of more and more of my clothes. It's neutral and yet still interesting, and it can be worn with almost any kind of top, including the ol' dress-as-a-shirt shirt. This time I decided to pair it with one of my favorite dresses, a little striped number that is cute on its own, but just as good when layered underneath a skirt.

This is the kind of thing I like about a capsule wardrobe--it forces you to pair pieces you normally wouldn't put together, and the result is often a new favorite outfit.
