Print mixing–I’ve seen many of my blogger friends do it before, and I tried it out in this previous post. While I’m not anti-matching, I feel having the option to mix it up can give you more versatility if you have a limited, or even not-so-limited, wardrobe. It’s long been my home decorating philosophy if nothing matches then it all goes together. Remember the chairs around Monica’s dinner table on Friends? If a “friend” went all WWF and smashed one of them, she may have lost a cute chair, but she didn’t have to worry that it broke up the set. Monica could just go to a thrift store and pick up a new one in whichever style she wanted. It’s so much fun to bring this idea to fashion. I really like how the polka dots on the chambray skirt are structured and traditional, but the spots on my blouse are just not having any of that. Speaking of the skirt, I feel it will become like a favorite pair of jeans, and I’ll wear it often. The shoes and purse don’t match either; in fact, the only things that match are my necklace and earrings.

When the lovely people at Modcloth gave me a gift card for their Spring-Time to Shine contest, I knew exactly which dress from my wishlist I wanted to buy with it! I’m new to the glasses club, only having worn them for a couple of years now, and I feel like the Clear as Day Off dress is the perfect way to make a spectacle of myself (haha). I kept this outfit simple, only adding a Lane Bryant belt and some black flats from Zappos. I feel like I’m channeling my inner Enid from Ghost World.

Now is a good time to mention two of my new Pinterest boards! On my Oh, So Close! board, I pin similar items to the ones I wear on the blog that are no longer available. Also, I have my Great Gals Dress Alike board where I search the web for fashionistas who are wearing some of the same things I wear here. Check out all of my boards to see what I’m obsessing about on a daily basis. As always, thanks for stopping by!

With summer not too far away, this might be the last day cool enough to wear my trusty brown boots for a while. Here’s a little outfit to give them a good send-off.
