Some girls like shoes… I like patterns. In fact, it’s always been my philosophy that a few pairs of simple “go with anything” heels, sandals and boots will carry you through all of your fashion whims- and besides, 85% of the time people are looking at your face, not your feet. If you haven’t noticed already- I wear my little red Mary Janes with practically half of my outfits- and I’m more than okay with that. So now that my minimalist shoe attitude it out of the closet- lets talk about patterns!
I’m sure you know by now that I have a pattern obsession- I love love love mixing patterns. You can read up more on my pattern mixing tips in my Coordinated Chaos post- but in the meantime- lets just all get excited about this recent Goodwill score: this adorable silk tank top with these perfect patterned dreamy redheads. $3, I’m in heaven.
The key to making all these patterns pull together is…red…aka color coordination. Keep the theme- add some dark reds to keep things grounded, and pull it all together with a creamy basic cardigan and this round, red, retro color pop purse.
Total outfit cost? Lets leave off the shoes since, as I mentioned, I wear them all the time and have literally had them for almost 5 years (classics never die) Silk Scarf: $2, Silk Tank: $3, Cardigan: $4, H&M pants: Hand-Me-Down from a friend, Purse: $4, All from my favorite neighborhood Goodwill. $13 total….aaaand I’m done!
Love and Thrift!
