Plaid casual + pattern-mixing

I actually wore this outfit back around Christmas (which also explains why my hair is slightly longer and lighter than seen on Monday’s outfit post), but I thought y’all would still like another look at a casual look of layering and pattern-mixing. Winter term at my college has begun, so there will be fewer casual outfits in the coming months.

I wore this outfit to go errand-running during break time, and it’s my favorite kind of casual winter outfit:  comfortable and cozy yet still “put together.”

For a chilly winter day, I layered a plaid button-down shirt over a longer tank top. I thought my “Anne of Green Gables” scarf was a nice play off the green tones in the plaid, and added another (subtle) pattern to the mix. Y’all know I love to pattern-mix! 🙂

I also like how there’s a slight ombre look to the outfit, with the lighter green of the scarf going into the brighter green in the plaid and then leading into the teal green of the tank top.

    Love the blue-green theme that you have going on here! And it matches nicely with the green shrubs that are behind you!

          Thanks! It helps that my husband takes most of my photos, so that I have a bit of creative space to think about nearby locations — or do different angles on the same backdrops around the neighborhood. 😉 When we’re going out somewhere together, I also tend to look for new and interesting backdrops so we can get in a quick outfit pic while we’re out and about.

      Thanks, Erin! I feel that more green tones have slowly wound their way into my wardrobe, mostly through accessories like the scarf Sam gifted me. And it makes me smile that the scarf has text from Anne of Green Gables — it’s like a little secret I get to carry around me all day. 🙂
