Remixing my oversized navy sweater with mint + animal print

Today’s outfit is a casual one I wore on a mildly chilly weekend afternoon. I have to admit, I have been wearing this oversized sweater A LOT this fall (I received it c/o Tobi Clothing, and you can read my review of this sweater here.)

And even in casual outfits, I always seem to find my way into pattern-mixing. Once you start mixing patterns, you can’t stop! I’m actually mixing three different patterns here:  my scarf has a pattern of text (from “Anne of Green Gables,” one of my favorite books); my flats are animal print; and my tote bag has an ikat-style print. Yet you almost don’t notice that I’m pattern-mixing, as each pattern is visually spaced out (top, middle, and bottom of my outfit). Also, the patterns on my tote bag and scarf are quite subtle and neutral — and animal print is another neutral in my book. 😉

I have been wanting to take pics in front of this cool mural in the “Dome District” part of Tacoma. It’s on the side of a business, and I love its simple and bold graphics and lines.

In the photo below, I love how you can really see the shape of my (freshly trimmed) haircut. With the spiky edges of this short cut, the silver threads in my dark brown hair really pop, don’t they? (I call them “my silvers,” by the way. No grey hair for me! 😉 )

I also wore my silver-and-peridot hoop earrings, as the light green peridot complemented my green scarf. I do love to pair green and navy together! You can read my review of these Anjolee earrings here.
