But I want it all, so I get it all

It is without coincidence that straight after I post about pattern mixing, I present to you an outfit containing pattern mixing. I went with the simple combination of monochrome spots and stripes to avoid overstatement. May I also add that I unashamedly bought this sheer polka dot blouse from Target for only $7.50!

The way it felt to fall asleep next to you

I spent a good hour the other night searching for pattern mixing outfits online. I can't exactly tell you why and I could probably find more productive things to do with my time, but that is irrelevant. I find pattern mixing outfits to be so brave and creative. It is so easy to over-do things when you're mixing patterns but when you get the right combination, you can really construct a stand out master-piece. These are a few of my favourite mixes that I found. I hope they inspire you as much as they did me.

Chase your fears away

One thing that I strangely enjoy about holidays, is living out of a suitcase. It sounds bizarre for a fashion addicted female to admit but it's because I appreciate how it forces you to use your creativity to style a select number of clothes over and over. I always make sure to pack staple items like these denim shorts and white tee and see what I can do to jazz things up. In this instance, wearing my chequered flannelette shirt around my waist worked wonders to break up this otherwise simple and mundane outfit. Now I feel like one of the cool kids.

I still love

Shirt: Sportsgirl | Shorts: Vintage Lees | Shoes: Naughty Monkey
I apologise for my short absence. I have been over on the Gold Coast the last week spending time with my family that lives up there. I actually have a zillion outfit photos saved up from the week before I left and whilst I was there. I was going to set up some scheduled posts before I left but I fell short of time. I'll still get around to posting them all in time. I wore this outfit on the first day I was away. The weather is a lot warmer at the Gold Coast than in Adelaide so I was able to wear shorts for the first time since last summer and it felt great! I kept my outfit pretty simple with stripes and denim shorts so I would be comfortable on my days adventures. Mainly just so I didn't have any complicated undressing rituals whilst I was in the change rooms at the shops. So many new clothes were obtained that day.
