I’m not usually a pattern mixer when it comes to my outfits. I tend to stick to simple pairings. Gingham with jeans, stripes with tailored white shorts, etc. So, I was surprised when I really loved the outfit above which happened after a much-needed closet cleanout.
The other day I decided to finally go through the unruly pile of clothes on my closet floor I’d been ignoring for months. While going through the pile I would try on items that were a maybe and see if I actually wanted to keep them. When I got to these shorts that originally didn’t fit after ordering them from Etsy, I thought I might as well see if they do now. And they did!
I was wearing this striped shirt at the time and was actually really not expecting it to look cute with the gingham. But wow, I love it! It’s always exciting to discover new outfit ideas within your own closet. Getting use out of things you had hid away and didn’t think you liked. Instead of adding more, repurposing old.
Now, I’ve been looking for more patterned staples that I can mix and match which I’ve listed below!
