I felt so good in this outfit, as it just felt so easy and light and simple — yet I’m still sneaking in some pattern-mixing. Because WHY NOT.
We took photos after work at these interesting stained-glass windows at a local church (which wasn’t holding services when we took pics, just FYI).
Sam cracked me up when I came downstairs for coffee that morning, and he saw the top half with my pink-striped tee and denim trousers. He went, “Oh, you look cute!” — and THEN he looked down and spied my pink geometric-print canvas flats. He then exclaimed, “Oh, and that was BEFORE I saw your shoes! Look at you pattern-mixing!” 😀 😀 😀
I did another rope-braid for my pixie bangs, as an easy way to get my hair off my face — and a little rope braid is more interesting than just a bobby pin. And if you’re not sure what a “rope braid” is or how to do one, here’s a “rope braid for pixie cut” hair video tutorial.
I wanted to get in a selfie after I realized that we (accidentally) were color-coordinating. Sam’s grey chambray shirt coordinates with my denim trousers, and I love how the pink sides of his sunglasses echo my pink-striped shirt.
The couple that color-coordinates together… 😉
