Today I hung out with my good friend, FancyFancy is the best accessorizer I know. I mean, if that was actually a word, her picture would be right there next to it in the dictionary.  She's able to string together necklaces, bracelets and/or earrings (and sometimes all three together) so perfectly to highlight whatever it is she's wearing, which is always fabulous (even when she's 6 months preggo and in sweats!).  But what wouldn't look fabulous on a 10 foot tall Irish beauty?

This is the outfit I wore to church yesterday in the pouring rain.  I'm quite impressed at how many pieces my nautical shirt "matches" with.  I thought I would try mixing patterns (something I LOVE when other bloggers do).  Might be hard to tell but the skirt has polka dots on it.  It was an item I wasn't sure about but bought anyway because it was on sale (I know, one of those shopping no-no's).  And since it was on sale I couldn't return or exchange it.  So I decided I would force myself to put together outfits with it by adding it to my 30 pieces. 

I must say that accessories are definitely a must with the Remix.  Thank goodness I'm not limited to a certain number.  I do think accessorizing is something I could work on, since I'm not particularly great at it (I should make Fancy give me lessons!).  And although I love boots, belts, scarves, hats, watches, bright nail and lip color, earrings and cocktail rings, I still think my greatest accessories are Princess Sparkles and Pigtails (especially when I match their outfits to mine -- haha...uh, I'm not joking).

I like that shocking fuchsia skirt! I, too, want to pattern mix more. Perhaps I should buy more patterns. Twist my arm to go shopping, why don't I?

Rain? What a way to start spring. Actually, we usually have rain but yesterday was actually nice. I won't hold my breath.

Love the flower! And I think you should try to mix patterns! It seems fun to me!

Tara said...

Well, if you're going to start mixing patterns, those patterns are a great place to start :)

I love the color of that skirt, and it does look really fabulous with the striped shirt. And the jacket? Yeah, I absolutely want it!

That hair bow/flower! It's wonderful! I love it's oversized presense and how cheerful it looks with this outfit!
Thanks so much for your nice comments on my post about breaking the rules while dressing. I think confidence is the best accessory, too!

Gracey said...

Fabulous. I love the black and white stripes with the color of the skirt. Another great outfit!

Daphne said...

Love all the purple in your outfit so cute. And that jacket is very cool. I love accessorizing but it seems when I am short for time I just put on the outfit and go. When I do my outfit lists I more focus on the basic items and not the accessories thinking Ican decided once I put it on but then I am always in a rush so not time to try things on.

Lydia Marie said...

This outfit is really cute! Love the flower in your hair too.
