Everybody, Everywear : Mix and Match

Wearing It All Day 16
Mixing prints for Everybody, Everywear? That's a no-brainer for me -  stripes and florals.
 Everybody, Everywear | Pattern Mixing
With the exception of one dress florals, for me, come in the form of scarves. Stripey tops are plentiful.

Today I'm wearing my favourite jeans, yes - the ones that I stuck to my leg with super glue. This may be the last time I can wear them as the glue cracked in the washing machine and snapped the denim. I love distressed jeans but rips? They're not for me.

Day 15
Maxi skirt, vest top (both are going in the no pile - they never get worn) and grey cardigan (keep).
Later I changed into a black dress and popped this cardigan over the top. I went to a funeral. It didn't seem right to take a photograph.

Day 14
An outfit perfectly suited to pulling up floor tiles don't you think?
Stripe t-shirt (keep - stripes stay until the literally fall apart) and cargo pants. I'm not sure about these, they don't get worn a lot but are handy for 'stuff'. That said if the traces of floor glue don't come out in the wash they'll be going into the charity bag.

Day 13
The cardigan and vest top will both be going. The vest top is too low (the scarf saved my blushes on a number of occasions today). I don't like layering t-shirts that aren't fitted as I find they cling to each other and I bought this top for the fluidity of the fabric. I did try wearing a boob tube underneath but it was useless and just kept slipping but at least I had a nice warm tummy.


Later in the evening I had friends over for dinner so I changed into this red maxi dress. I've had it for over a year and this is the first time I have worn it. It's about four inches too long but I love it (and enjoyed wearing it) so it is staying, even if it doesn't get worn for another year.

What did you get up to this weekend?

  1. Could you take the maxi up a couple of inches, or is it awkward fabric? Might mean you get more wear out of it if it's a more practical length. It's a gorgeous colour.
