in the mix.

stripes.
florals.
leopard python.
all in a neutral palette.
incorporating these three elements is somewhat of the
ultimate mix for me.
i'm happy when i put two together...add a third,
and i'm ecstatic.
continuing with day four of the white blazer.
i kept trying to layer this floral blouse over things, but realized it works better under things. the back is cropped and doesn't peek out, so it sort of has the appearance of a scarf.
this is the striped dress from this set here.
it's actually cream colored and lent a subtle contrast to the white blazer.
and, i'd normally opt for a hint of leopard, but my leopard belt is too big to wear at my waist...so python took its place.

(after five days of wearing the white blazer last week, i thought i'd be sick of it. but, i actually reached for it again on sunday and wore it to breakfast on mother's day.)

the new frozen strawberry lemonade from mcdonalds.

  1. Ohhh I love the mix here, florals + stripes are sooo great together. And the white blazer is very perfect over it too.

    I've only worked at payless for a couple months now, but I remember a time when I shopped there and their shoes were muuuch cheaper :S

  35. I don't know which I love more -- the dress or the blazer.
    I still love the blazer. It's so gorgeous. No wonder you are having such an affair with it right now.
    Give me 20 minutes alone with your closet. That's all I ask.
