On day two of our recent London adventure, I decided to wear a bit of an eclectic mix of patterns. I’m kind of new to pattern mixing, but I’m enjoying the challenge of creating a look that is completely unique. I also get an enormous amount of pleasure when I throw things together that, at least in theory, shouldn’t work.
Take this lightweight cardigan for instance. The ‘old’ me would have teamed it with a plain black tee, which would have looked fine. But worn over a striped top with a subtly coloured bobble scarf — BAM! Some of you may love it, some of you may hate it. But that’s what fashion is all about isn’t it? Experimenting, having fun and wearing things you love. And I, dear reader, loved this look 🙂

As this post airs I’ll be at a blogging convention, and I may very well be wearing this outfit. I’ll let you know if it was a hit with the other bloggers. I’d love to know your thoughts on pattern mixing. Do you think I nailed it or failed it? Do leave me a comment.
