If you're like me, sometimes you get tired of looking at the same old clothes in your closet. Especially when you have to dress rather conservatively for work. This is how I felt when I was figuring out what to wear for this Friday.  So, what do I do when I start feeling uninspired? I started mixing up different patterns and colors that I think shouldn't work!

Somehow these navy and white stripes never seemed to strike me as something that would work with warmer tones like golds, corals, and browns.  But I decided to throw it all together and just go with it.  Maybe it worked?  Either way, it made for a fun Friday ensemble!

And in case you're wondering, I totally tucked my belt back in before I walked into the office.  :)

Happy weekend, everyone!

  4. This so works for you! I love it. Brown and navy stripes have always seemed like they go for me...and you accessorize well. I think that shirt would look cute with those chunky rope necklaces for the nautical look too.
