Pattern-mixing with navy polka dots + stripes

I am pattern-mixing AND remixing today with one of my favorite color combos, navy + green.

If you are seeing this outfit and thinking, “Haven’t I seen this outfit on the blog before?,” I would not blame you. I haven’t worn this exact combo before on the blog — colorblock cardigan + striped tank + polka-dotted skirt — but I have remixed two out of the three pieces together in different ways before, as seen in the collage below:

Remixing = real life.
Always.

Admittedly, I hadn’t worn this polka-dotted skirt in awhile, but it did amuse me how many of my colleagues in the library first complimented me on my dress. It was extra fun to see their jaws drop when I told them it was actually a tank top and a skirt. I do appreciate that my colleagues have gotten used to seeing me pattern-mix, LOL! 😀

It was still quite chilly that day — we “joke” up here in the PNW that it doesn’t really warm up until after Fourth of July — which is why you’re seeing a peek of my coat in the pic below.

I went for bronze accessories, my Mary Jane heels and my topaz drop earrings, because of the bronze buttons on my cardigan. I love my thrifted Mary Jane heels deeply, and one of the (many) things I love about them is how the perforations on the toe make a heart shape. ♥♥♥ Click the photo below for a closeup.

    I love pattern mixing and especially stripes and polka dots. I think it’s funny now looking back on how it used to be so scary and now it’s just what we do! Thanks for linking up for Fabulous Friday! XO
