And here's how my thought process went:
OK, well, I have a gray belt and over-the-knee boots like that, so those are givens.
I have nothing plaid or gingham except the one plaid shirt I wore on Friday.
But no skirt I own matches that one plaid shirt...plus, I just wore it Friday.
I do own one tie shirt, and it's patterned, and it'll work, but it's in my Goodwill bag.
I could go with the pattern mixing idea and wear a black patterned top and a black floral skirt.
No, that looks dumb together.
OK, let's work with the pink patterned tie shirt.
I don't have any pink skirts, though.
I do have this pink sweater dress, but it's got 3/4 sleeves and a cowl neck.
I'll try putting the shirt on top of it.
Now, I'll try bunching the shirt up under the belt.
Hey, it kinda works, as far as matching the photo goes.
So here's my interpretation with Dela joining in again.
|Dress: Boston Store; Shirt: Old Navy; Belt: Luci Boutique; Boots: Mr. Shoe|
I like it better without the leggings, but whattayagonnado?
Once I got to work, I got pretty warm with my excess of layers, so I rolled up the sleeves and threw my hair in a ponytail. Which come to think of it, would look more like the inspriation picture.
And I just realized that I mentioned on Friday how I didn't have any bright pink. I guess I did have one item--the dress--but it's much better suited for cooler weather. I don't count the shirt because I'm pretty sure it will go back in the Goodwill bag by the end of the day. The ties have always driven my crazy, and I actually ironed them while wearing the shirt this morning. Awkward.
Anyway, be sure to check out how everyone else styled the look. I'm impressed with the few I've seen so far!
