More Spring dressing. This time it’s about the print and playing with paisley.
It’s still not warm, so layers are a must but I wanted to bring a little colour into my look with this paisley print top.
Playing with Paisley: I love the colours in this paisley print top and rather than wear it with black pants I thought I might do a little print clashing with my grey lace look skinny jeans. I’ve got a grey light-weight sweater underneath and have used the cobalt bag and accessories to further play up the blues in the shirt.
Oh, and yes, I am smiling. I’m trying to make a little more effort for you all. And I had my coffee first!
Casual and Comfortable: Some days you just want to be comfortable. This was one of those days. I like playing with the two prints, paisley and the printed pants. But what I like best is how reasonable the price was on this look. You may remember the gorgeous resin necklace by Rancho Designs that was a gift for my birthday and the handbag that was purchased from Sussan with money the parents sent for my birthday. Then both the paisley shirt and the grey long-sleeved shirt underneath were purchased while in the states last year. Both were on sale…at Walmart! I know I shouldn’t say that and I’ll probably loose any “fashion cred” I had, but I’m a real person who likes real bargains! The jeans are from Target and the flats were on sale for about $10 from Rivers.
I don’t think a little bargain shopping has ever hurt anyone. And certainly dressing comfortable yet stylish hasn’t!
