Bright and bold in berry + black and white stripes

This might just turn out to be my favorite outfit for the month! I love the bright and bold color combo of berry + black and white, as well as the pattern-mixing with the crossbody bag and striped dress.

I wore this cheery outfit on a weekend outing for a breakfast with friends, followed by a bit of shopping and a haircut trim. It turned out to be a sunny day, but since I was starting out on public transit in the early morning chill, I wore leggings. I thought about basic black leggings, but then I realized that my berry-colored leggings almost exactly matched my cardigan. An opportunity to color-coordinate? As I’ve said before, color-coordination = LOVE.

Sam caught the photo below as the breeze kicked up. Such a fun shot! (And thank goodness I wore leggings in windy weather! 😉 )

      And it was just an accident of the weather — I knew it would be chilly, and I had to leave early in the morning and take the bus — that made me put on the leggings! Thank goodness for those bits of inspiration — even if that inspiration is external 😉
