Mixed Patterns

14 December 2010











I have really been in love with mixing patterns together lately.
It is always interesting how many different
combinations there can be in my closet. I got this
scarf at H&M in Chicago over the summer and have
finally had a chance to wear it. It is so huge that it is
hard to wear with my super thick hair down, so I put
it in this messy top knot. Maybe a little too messy, and
border-line frumpy, but this hair of mine is really
hard to tame!

Hope everyone is having a lovely week! Tonight
all of my friends and I are done with school, so it
is time to celebrate!

im shocked at how much money you constantly waste on clothing. i wonder if youll ever wake up and realize what a superficial person youve become. youll be squandering your brain to acquire a huge and unneccesary closet, while your counterparts will be doing real work, making money, making policy, making a difference. and you will be nothing more than a girl that fell for society's image of ideal beauty, lacking anything of substance.

Eli said...

you look fantastic! I would totally wear it just like this!

November Grey said...

How have I only now found your blog?! Following of course. Your style is perfection. Adore.

Kathryn said...

Oh my word! I had this sweater in my hands today to purchase & then opted out using the excuse "I still need to buy Christmas presents!" (which as embarassing as it is, is true!) I might just have to go back and get it though! xo
