WiW: 10.22 - Dots and Owls

Tee hee! I had planned on this outfit before

Angie's post and look; patterns!!! I love the cute little patterns that end up in my closet somehow (not by accident, I assure you)!

The dots are pretty fun as a basic to pattern match too!

:) mmmm. Too early in the morning for witty insight!!

    Adorable as ever. You are the Queen of whimsical patterns and mixing.
    What a fabulous belt!

  • Alassë replied 10 years ago

    That bumblebee blouse is pretty cute! I always enjoy seeing your outfits.

  • Suz replied 10 years ago

    That is SO cute!! Love the belt.

    You are a fabulous pattern mixer lyn!

  • Amy replied 10 years ago

    Yep you're definitely in the pattern camp. I've always loved the whimsical elements you bring to your outfits. You look great!

  • Inge replied 10 years ago

    This is wonderful, lyn*. Love the subtle dots with the whimsical owl pattern, and the round shapes on your belt can almost count like an extra pattern too, don't you think?-)

    Love this! a sophisticated outfit with a shimiscial twist!

  • rachylou replied 10 years ago

    I really like that top! I like the neckline.

  • Emily replied 10 years ago

    Very cute - you are clearly the master of whimsical patterns!  It is always a pleasant surprise to me how your outfits look totally grown up and sophisticated.  You really have a great eye for print.

    Edit - I may have worded my compliment poorly.  For context, I love figural prints like your owls but always worry that I would look like a child in them.  You, on the other hand, always look like a charmingly stylish adult woman.  Bravo.

    Great top! I love seeing how you put patterns together.

    There is that cute belt again. A young at heart feel in a grown up silhouette :)

  • El Cee replied 10 years ago

    This whole outfit is so cute and fun! The belt is a gorgeous piece.

    @ Joy - Thanks! :3 I try to up the whimsy in my life!

    @ Alasse - I want a bumblebee blouse really bad; MaryK and Goldenpig have the most adorablest one! Mine is a owl top though :)

    @ Suz - Whoa. A bold SO! 

    @ Shannon - I cheat a lot; both of these pieces are really easy to pattern mix with!

    @ Amy - Yup, definitely pattern camping here!

    @ Inge - I was hoping it would play off the dots in the skirt, but they are a different type of bubbles! I'm surprised I like this belt so much; I was worried it would be one of those purchases that just sit there!

    @ Tracey - Thanks; one of my preceptors was very thankful I didn't look like a "street person" - I didn't ask to elaborate. 

    @ Rachylou - It actually has an interesting back to it too; but that's for another WiW ;)

    @ Emily - Oh; I struggle with that all the time! I'm worried that I look too young, because people always ask me how old I am - and they don't really ask the older docs that!

    @ Ceit - Mix mash in the morning? :)

    @ Pil - Thanks! Maybe it is the pencil skirt that keeps this grown up!

    @ El Cee - (Elsie? One of my best friends in high school was Elsie. She shortened hers to LC).

    I should be resting! But I saw your cute outfit and I had to share my glee. Weeee!

    Love the owls!
