She's a Mixer

I wish ladies, that I could come to you with some awesome tales of
adventure, but alas, the past several days I've been sitting in front of
 my computer listening to a court case between people who, let's just
say English is not their first language... it's been some tough listening!
There's just something about the cooler months that draw me to 
plaid.  Probably because it comes in the form of warmer material.
While it was an ideal autumn day I guess I wasn't feeling too seasonal,
for this gray ensemble is so not fall-ish.  There's still plenty of time for the
autumn looks, October has yet to come and then it'll all be about orange!
I've seen this mixing of plaid and stripes before, specifically speaking, 
in the blogging sphere,  and while thinking they pulled it off, I myself 
have been a little more reluctant to put it to the test.  Then I woke up
 yesterday, hating every outfit I was coming up with, and I decided to stop 
living in this close-minded box of mine. I'm glad I gave this a whirl too, 
'cause I really I liked how it turned out.  It makes me think back to just
four years ago and my closet filled with black.   And prints?  No way.
Hah.  I'm probably making myself sound like a drag, but black and 
solids?  They're just easy.  And a bit of a no-brainer. 
Outfit:
Guess Skirt
Jacob Shirt
Spring Flats
Thrifted Jacket 
Magnolia Silver Filigree Ring

  1. You look totally cute in this :) The plaid mixed with the stripes is like grunge meets chic. My closet used to be filled with all black too lol. I'm glad I started wearing colors but you're right, black is definitely easier. And I love the picture of your dog in the leaves. He looks so happy.

  2. Ahh, your hair is so gorgeous! Denim is also a really cool and relaxed look on you. I also chuckled at your little "About" section in your sidebar!
