This week’s fashion theme was prints and patterns. See previous weeks’ themes here and here. I tend to wear solids, so it was fun to rummage through my closet and find items I had forgotten about or haven’t worn in quite some time. That’s the beauty of these themes – they push me to actually choose the items I otherwise would pass over.
Do you have clothes like that in your closet? Perfectly good, quality, cute clothes that you never want to wear, but then you wear them and love them? Yup, me too. Glad we’re on the same page.
This week’s picks were a mix between old and new pieces with my standard gold accessories. Though I have about 10 black and white striped shirts, I opted for a brighter striped printed dress for day one with a statement necklace to add some vertical interest. Day two, I was really feeling fall, so I dressed up a plaid blouse with a camel blazer with a striped cuff detail – while this wasn’t a very daring mix of prints, I plan on playing more around with mixing patterns this year. Any tips are welcomed!
Prints-Themed Fashion Week
Days four and five were filled with leopard print, one in a standard color and the other in a nice, jewel-toned green that I wore with green and light pink wedges. On day five, my daughter and I decided to match in our new Willow Crowns headbands and kept it casual with rolled boyfriend jeans and the comfiest Cole Hahn oxfords.
