Floral + geometric pattern-mixing + remixing

If you haven’t already, please vote for your favorite outfit of mine from February. Thanks in advance!

It’s been really difficult lately to get proper photos outside because of 1. all the rain, especially on the weekends (hello, Portland transitional weather!), and 2. because of all the early morning and late days working (a spate of after-work meetings and night sessions to teach). It has been an exhausting winter term, and I am looking forward to spring break in a few weeks!

In the meantime, I’ve had to resort to taking “flat lay” pics of outfits! I’ve worn this floral + geometric pattern-mixing combo quite a few times lately but haven’t been able to get pics yet because of the reasons listed above. Early this winter, I realized that this geometric print square scarf I fashion-swapped last fall paired well with my floral popover top, as they both have different shades of pink and purple. Y’all know how I love pattern-mixing! 😉

So I’ve worn those two items together a few times since. I’ve been wearing the square scarf as a headband, but it would equally well as a neck scarf — hearkening back to my four ways to remix a square scarf post! And then I’ve just been switching out the bottoms for both “work casual” and “casual casual” outfits. Keeping the bottoms neutral (like with my denim trousers, olive ankle pants, and skinny jeans) or monochromatic (my purple jeans) keeps all the attention up top for the pattern-mixing. 😀

I’ve stuck to pants thus far, but I could easily switch those out for neutral skirts as well. Next time, I’m thinking of getting pics of this combo with either my grey or burgundy pencil skirt. What do y’all think? Would y’all like to see this pattern-mixing combination again in ‘real life’? Please leave a comment and let me know!

Also, a quick heads-up:  There will no regular post tomorrow, Friday, March 4, because I have a special interview post all lined up for you over the weekend! So please stop by on Sunday, March 6, to check it out!
