Pink Cardi, Mustard Striped Tee, and Floral Skirt {Living Outside the Stacks}

Well, hello there! I hope your week has been fabulous so far. Mine has been great. I’m two days in to a seven day running streak, so yay! My muscles are sore but my mind and spirit are clear. And can you see the muscle definition forming in the front of my legs? I’ve always thought I somewhat resembled Sponge Bob Square Pants. giggle

So today I’m all about color and pattern. My theory on color is if you see it together in nature, you can wear it on your body. Really, isn’t God the ultimate designer? You are familiar with His work, right? Stunning! As for pattern mixing, I’m all about quirky. In my head, florals and stripes go with everything! Florals and dots. Stripes and plaid. Floral and plaid. Stripes and dots. It’s all interchangeable as long as there’s something in the mix that unifies the look.

For example, I use mustard as a neutral {you can see how I use it as a base color here as well}, so it’s a non~color color that just so happens to make the golds and browns in my skirt and shoes pop. The pink cardi is an add on piece that goes with {not matches} the cream in the stripes of my tee and the beige in my skirt. And the shoes? Well, they’re just a fabulous pair of buckled men’s wear inspired oxfords that I always seem to forget are in my closet.

Today was supposed to be the last installment in my How to Wear a Denim Maxi Skirt series but… I’ve been working with sick family members for a few days and now I’m sick. Some weird stomach thing that doesn’t have the decency to know when it’s no longer welcome. So I had to go through my “stash o’ pics” and see what I had floating around…

I’ve worn a dress over jeans looks before, you can check them out here. In fact, it’s one of my favorite looks. What I don’t do very often is show my arms. Or define my waist with a belt, for that matter. I did both with this cute little dress {which set me back a whopping $2.50 from the clearance rack at JC Penney} and I absolutely love the look. My sandals, which you can see here, are incredibly bright, as is the dress, so grounding them with a black belt just seemed to fit.

My daughter asked me about the pink and green color combination, it’s not something I’d usually wear. But I was totally inspired by the top in this post {women over twenty should have fun with their clothing} and the wall in this post {that green just spoke to me} by Glenda at So What to Twenty! Honestly, Glenda is just an inspiration all the way around… I love how she weaves stories in with her style posts.

Last week, I showed you how to wear a denim maxi skirt boho style. It’s one of my favorite ways to wear my denim maxi, but it can also be dressed up for work. Button down shirts are a wardrobe staple. If you don’t have one, go out and buy one now. They can be paired with anything from skirts to shorts and slacks to jeans.

A simple metallic belt and a couple of bracelets are my only accessories. Minimalism is key in the workplace. Especially when you work in a place like a library {which I do}, you don’t want a lot of jingling. And a cute pair of flats to finish things off.

Next week, I’ll conclude with How to Wear a Denim Maxi Skirt for Play!

Do you prefer heels or flats?
