I came across this article from the November issue of Marie Claire about creating a look with stripes, florals and patterned shoes. I'm not a fan of mixing too many prints and although people like Olivia Palermo can pull it off, I aint no Olivia and New York is not my personal red carpet. BUT I was intrigued by this since I recently bought leopard loafers from Zara. Even though my new shoes kill my poor feet, I can't stop wearing them. I am trying to find ways to incorportate them into outfits constantly e so thought I would give the combo a try but nix the floral skirt. Copying this might seem ridiculous to you, but for me I have a hard time making outfits for work every morning and take all the help I can get. Decided to wear a yellow and cream striped sweater with my navy paperbag waist skirt, skinny brown belt, and the prized leopard loafers. My coworker, and the only person here in my cube today, gave the thumbs up. Happy with the choice.
