Pattern mixing Jedi. That's what I felt like at the Blogger Mixer on Saturday. Last week you may have read my post about my hesitance towards mixing patterns, well a lot has changed! Thanks to all of your encouraging words of pattern mixing wisdom, I took the plunge! I was freaking out all week about what I was going to wear to this event, Jen received about a million stressed out emails from me second guessing everything I was going to wear. Finally I landed on this. One thing I did know is that I really didn't want to buy anything new, I had recently re-worked a bunch of old skirts so I figured this wool one would keep me warm on what turned out to be a freezing day! I paired it with one of my favorite shirts and the leopard belt (leopard is really a neutral isn't it?). You'll see later in the week that I've seriously re-discovered my love for leopard print! I love how the stripes and leopard play off one another and keep things interesting. Overall I was really pleased with this outfit, and my choice in shoes payed off when I had to run like the wind to catch my train! I think this is one of my all-time favorite ensembles!

A big "thank you" to Jen's husband Kev for taking these amazing pictures!
P.S.- I know I seem to be slacking on commenting back for everyone, the internet in my apartment is down so I've been a little slow. Don't worry, I'll get there! Also, thank you for all of your wonderful questions, I'm putting together a huge post for (hopefully) Friday!
