Subtle

This outfit features a couple more items from my recent thrift store haul. The striped button-down is Old Navy and the skirt is Express; the two together cost me about $8. The waistcoat is by Sisley (from Benetton), belt by Anne Klein, and shoes by BCBG Girls. I love the pairing of florals and stripes; I've seen Kasmira do it before and I like the way the regularity of the stripes offsets the randomness of the floral design. I threw an additional floral pattern in there with the scarf, which I thought softened the menswear look of the button-down shirt/waistcoat combo. The scarf actually began life as a belt on a pair of cropped pants I bought a few years ago.

The colors are very subtle in this outfit and are tough to make out: the shirt is a light beige with thin stripes of red, gold, and white; the skirt is ice blue with flowers in brown, red, and pink.

Nice combo. I would never have the sense to do this or to be able to make it match somehow. Nice!

This looks great together! I've been trying to get comfortable with pairing stripes and florals myself. Im lacking confidence--but you make it look oh so easy!
