Patterned Texture

July 15, 2015

I'll be the first to admit that I've worn this outfit way too many times this season.

 I'm all for mixing things up and putting different pieces together, so excessive outfit repeating bothers me. However, this outfit is so versatile that it's hard not to repeat it.


I love this outfit for several reasons, one being you can wear it at anytime in the day and it's totally appropriate. From daytime errands to dinner to going out at night, this outfit is a go-to. The second aspect is the mixture of pattern and texture throughout the different pieces. The cardigan is a cotton blend with a crocheted pattern that creates the coolest texture. The shorts have a silky feel to them and I'm obsessed with the baroque-esq patterns. The combination of pattern and texture between the two pieces creates a really unique feel to the outfit as a whole. 


Of course you can't forget about my favorite handbag, which (sadly) is basically my other half. I love the style/size/color/everything about this bag. Grey is such a great color for summer handbags. I try to steer clear of black in the summer time. The majority of my summer clothes are lighter pastels, so black bags add a certain harshness to outfits that I'm not a huge fan of. A lighter shade of grey is my ideal because it matches just about every color palette.
