Going Ungracefully

I'll be the old lady in the tight, purple skirt

I’m gonna wear that new (old) black pencil skirt plumb out!

In my quest to do more pattern and color mixing, I tried something today that felt really daring: I wore black checkered tights AND a patterned blouse.

I sort of cheated because I wore a sweater-jacket over the blouse, hiding all but the cuffs. Still, I felt super edgy!

If this is crazy and totally the wrong way to mix patterns please, please, please PLEASE tell me!

I also surrendered my waist in this. I hardly ever wear this sweater because it doesn’t conform to my shape. It is pretty nice on days where I just can’t suck in the tum all day though!

Shoes: Etienne Aigner, black thrifted
Tights: black checkered, Wal-Mart
Skirt: Ann Taylor, black pencil, thrifted
Blouse: Violet & Claire, multi, thrifted
Sweater: Green, TJ Maxx
Earrings: Ah, good memories! Part of a sterling silver set I bought in Mérida, Mexico about 15 years ago. Sigh!
