A few days ago Chloee (one of the British bloggers that I follow and adore) www.unwrittenhollywood.com *check her out!* was saying she purchased some floral slipper shoes and asked on Twitter "What can I wear floral pattern slipper shoes with? Been wanting to wear them for days but I can't seem to style them!"
This was a perfect opportunity for me to extend one of my favourite 'mis matched pattern go to's' So I chimed in "Why with STRIPES of course!" To which the lovely Chloeeeee (as her Poppa likes to text to her) *teehee* replied "I've never tried it!!!"
Not that this is anything so original or anything...I don't want to come off sounding as such, just one of my favourite looks, so I was happy to share it with someone who, in my eyes, has such impeccable style!
That being said I promised her I'd send some photos her way of some of my floral/stripe combos. One that I did NOT include is my floral skirt with striped shirt..I also did not include any of my cardigan looks...or shoes. I stuck with the scarf/shirt combinations as I was pressed for time after working a long, hard day and this is all I had time to come up with.
As you'll see I'm a bit of a scarf hoarder. I have wayyy too many and so one of my resolutions for this year was to 'downsize' my scarf collection and NOT PURCHASE SO MANY in the future. I did, however, just purchase one from Kohls (as it was only $15 and I had $10 in Kohls cash, thus making it a mere $5..and I really liked it for spring/summer and I don't have anything like it colour or pattern wise) *Do I sound like I was trying to convince myself that this was a 'valid' purchase??* Probably because I WAS!
So, here we go..enjoy..and please if you have any pattern combinations that are not so 'matchy matchy'..do send your links my way!
|This is my favourite striped shirt..black & white classic from Forever 21 - $18 Floral infinity scarf - Macys $38|
|Black, red & turquoise square scarf from Forever 21 - $12|
|Ragged & worn hot pinkish floral scarf - WetSeal *clearance* $5|
|Antique floral scarf Forever 21 - $14|
|Another favourite striped shirt cream & navy from Forever 21 - $12, Navy & coral floral scarf $12|
Even in the summer I still pile on the scarves..I just go with one of my smallish, very light neck scarves! I generally find these at antique shoppes or charity shops & yard sales. All of mine are vintage which makes me love them even more and at only $2, $3 or $5..you really can't NOT buy them!
|Antique shoppe find - $5|
|Newest addition - Kohls $5 (after using my $10 Kohls cash) |
