There are days when I feel the need to stick with the tried and true outfit combinations. And then there are days when I want to try something different, or at least different for me. This outfit is one such moment. I knew I wanted to wear the polka dot skirt for a presentation I was giving on social media to a group of high school students. The rest… well, I just wasn’t sure. I tried on a number of different tops and didn’t like the looks of any of them. In despair I slipped on this shirt with the plan to change skirts but then I liked the large color-blocked shirt paired with the polka dot skirt and an outfit was born. The accessories fell into place and I went with the chunky gladiator-styled wedges to add a little edge to the skirt.
The look is different for me, but I really liked it. Certainly repeatable. And I got a couple compliments on the look too – so at least I know it wasn’t just me and the mirror who thought this was fun.
Tip: When it comes to mixing two things that wouldn’t normally be paired together go with items you are comfortable with for your first attempt. Because, even if it doesn’t work at least you will feel great in it.
