Checks Mix

     I’ve been looking for a red and black buffalo plaid shirt for the last couple of years. It’s not like it was an intense search, but I did keep an eye out.  I just never found one that I liked, so when I came upon this one at Forever 21 I snapped it up.  Of course I couldn’t be like everyone else and pair it with denim or black so I threw it on over my striped dress and voila, a new mix of prints.  I’ll admit, this one was a little scary, but I did it and I really liked it. I’m pretty sure people sometimes think I get dressed in the dark and just put on whatever I happen to grab.  Maybe the next time I can’t decide what to wear I’ll try that.

    I like it!! And I think many a pattern-mixing outfit could be just as easily achieved by the grabbing clothes in the dark method–but I still really like the style. 🙂 It’s easy!

      It was comfortable too which is always a plus in my book.
