What I Wore (pattern mixing)


I am sticking to my January shopping ban like a pro.

We have even cooked dinner at home every single night (except Saturday) for two weeks.

Where did this willpower come from?!?!  What is happening to me?

Anyway.

In keeping with my thrifty resolution, I've rediscovered some forgotten items in the depths of my closet.

Vintage Express, for example.......


This sweater and scarf both came from Express y.e.a.r.s. ago.  (Thus being deemed vintage.)

I wore them together in the name of pattern mixing.  Secretly wondering all day if Shanna would approve.......


Express was so before its time.  I mean, striped sweaters and red animal print scarves?

All those years ago.  How did they know?

Or are these items past their prime?

And in my thrifty state, I'm becoming delusional?

  18. I've been in such a clothing rut lately, I LOVE the idea of going through the older items in your closet and wearing them again! I'm actually excited to go see what I have in the back of mine!
    And striped sweater dresses and leopard scarves are definitely NOT passed their prime! You look great!
    Best,
