Today's Everyday Fashion: Pattern Play

Inspiration: Pinterest

I loved the pattern top paired with bright colors in the inspiration photo. Since the picture doesn't show the rest of the outfit, my imagination was full of possibilities for the bottom half. Black jeans, yellow shoes? White jeans, pink shoes? Or, what I wound up wearing, dark denim and turquoise shoes. How would you finish this outfit?

  2. To make this outfit my own I'd probably wear a blazer instead of the cardi and instead of mustard I think it would look great with a nice spring color!!


  3. I just have to say that your hair looks really great today! (love the outfit too!) :)

  4. Love the blue pump.


  5. Such a great combination, will have to try this :)

  6. I love how you finished the outfit. The blue heels are gorgeous. I think a pencil skirt in a bright color would be fun too.

  7. I love mustard paired with any print but the shoes were totally unexpected but I loved the surprise color factor, bring lots of life to it!

  11. A black skirt and black pumps would also look great! I guess it depends on how casual or dressy you want to look...

  12. Great outfit! Quick, easy and looks great!  

    How do you decide when and when not to wear a belt with your jeans?

  13.  Super-cute outfit!!    I love how your mustard cardigan seems to highlight only the *outer* yellow stones of your necklace............ leaving The *Rainbow*-Colored CENTER "visually intact," (i.e., as a rainbow)!!   

    Given that little thought, for a Springtime work outfit, maybe then (?) your mustard heels and a *neutral white* pencil skirt would also look nice, too............ and for a Fall/Winter work outfit, maybe then (?) your mustard heels and a *neutral black* pencil skirt............ i.e., all in an effort to keep The *Rainbow*-Colored CENTER~~of the necklace~~"visually intact," as a rainbow!!    'Cordially hope this *rainbow* -ally (haha!!) makes sense, J.!!

  14. Neckline is important with the necklace. Love this look, but I would go with a boat neck or scoop neck top with the necklace like inspiration photo and then this would be absolutely perfect!!!!!

  15. That pattern's really gorgeous!  I love it with the mustard cardigan.  Great shoes too!

  16. I LOVE the mustard cardi with the b/w top and turquoise shoes!  LOVEEEEE!  I'm gonna have to copy this.
