Checks n' Stripes

Still experimenting with pattern mixing and my camera settings, and even though this outfit looked really nice in person, the top came out washed out in the pictures, but I promise you the top is brighter, more like the way it came out in the second picture.

I am really happy with all this experimenting, it creates a whole new world of opportunities and it expands your closet so much, pieces that you thought were pretty limited as to their possibilities; like this top that I probably would have only worn with jeans, create complete new outfits in your mind, I am already wanting to pair it with leggings, boots and a vest when the weather allows it.
