My Husband Dressed Me: Winter Pattern Mixing

This time Scot tackled something near and dear to my heart: pattern mixing!  He must be taking notes, because he made sure he chose some bold prints to pair together this week.  

Why he picked this outfit: "This was another attempt at pattern mixing, but with my own twist this time.  I really like these skinny royal blue, hounds tooth carpris with a pair of black heels - a smart look.  A simple white blouse under the beautiful patterned wool shawl (that I actually picked up in Germany as a gift) really makes a this outfit a bold statement.  I don't think many women could pull off this look, but I know Kinsey, she will be getting compliments all day long!"

What I thought:  I'll be honest that I was a little hesitant with this look at first!  I have worn this shawl with basic black before to really let it shine, so pairing it with these patterned trousers was a departure for me.  I love a challenge, and I love pattern mixing so I just went with it- and I actually received several compliments on this getup!  Several people went out of their way to tell me they thought I looked nice or that they liked the outfit.  I had to give credit to Scot, because I wouldn't have thought to chose this look for myself.

I think those are the best! I had an outfit like that when I had my daughter pick out my outfits too, but sometimes the challenges are the best ones!
