And This One's For Me

If Friday's outfit was for my mom, this one is definitely for me. Mixing stripes and leopard is something I would not have thought to do before I started this blog but I have come to love the mismatched combination. It's like french fries dipped in a milk shake--unexpectedly great together (and with much less potential for causing heart attacks).

Really love the maxi skirt - I've been on the hunt for something similar. Pairing it with the leopard print flats was a wonderful touch.

I bought that skirt but being a short girl, it was just too long on me and made me feel frumpy so I had to send it back. I'm happy that it's working so well for you! (even if it feels like it's taunting me a little bit each time I see it on you)

I have this same top and shoes...and I pair them together all the time! (See? http://verbalmelange.blogspot.com/2012/02/re-wear-police.html)

They look fab with this skirt as well :)

I am loving the mismatched patterns because it doesn't look haphazard; it's obvious that you intentionally paired those items for a statement. It's fantastic!
