Pattern-mixing stripes + polka dots + camels

I’ve pattern-mixed stripes + polka dots together before, as seen here and here, but I wouldn’t blame you if you’re wondering… camels? It’s easy when you have a striped t-shirt that already includes a camel! I got this novelty print t-shirt on sale last summer, and I paired it recently with my navy polka-dotted skirt [available online for less than $15!].

One final time to incorporate “Top 10” items (the dotted skirt plus my crystal drop earrings) for Sarah’s Real Life style challenge!

This combo was inspired by this dress + red belt combo @ ModCloth, as well as from this pattern-mixing ensemble I pinned from Corilynn.

I wore this comfortable outfit — it’s literally just a t-shirt + skirt + flats — on a loooooooong day of teaching. It felt great to wear a t-shirt in a more professional way! It also felt great to get a few compliments from students on my camel t-shirt. One girl remarked, “It’s not something you see every day.” 😀
