outfit du jour: society is my friend

It's Everybody, Everywear day (aka one of my favorite blogging days of the month). I put together this pattern mixing oufit with this semi-weird floral shirt I got at Charlotte Russe years ago and this vintage, hand made green and white floral vest that I've been at a loss as to how to wear. Paired them with high waisted super flared jeans and I was in love. But sadly, it just was not one of those outfits that photographed well, so this will have to do.

Pattern Mixing | Everybody, Everywear


  1. I love the mix of pattern w/ the top and vest. I was just talking to a friend yesterday about how it's acceptable to mix patterns like this - unlike "back in the day" when she and I were learning the fashion "rules". I love this and hopefully I'll be able to pull off a similar look some day!

  2. love your jeans!!so 70's!!

    kisses <3

  3. I like the mix of patterns that you chose. I totally spaced on EBEW this month for some reason!

  4. cool pants and love those shoes!

  5. Cute sunglasses and rings!! I can never find a ring that fits and that I like.


  6. i absolutely love the two patterns you mixed! the vest and the top are amazing. and so is that great fringe bag that you got for a serious steal!!!


  7. Amazing. You find the best things thrifting. Those jeans were made for you. You are so gorgeous!!

  8. Photos, shotos! Mine are always bad, I'm working on it! I always appreciate your style. It's you and nobody else.
    I actually really like your vest!

  9. Love the mixed prints on you and the jeans are great! I love how every look you do still looks like you. You have great style. Nice photo spot. Debbie http://thriftygirlvintage.com

  10. Wow, I love the vest and the bag. You are very photogenic :)

  11. thank you for all your kind words on my wall!
    i love how the patterns of the shirt and vest go together. do you find vintage and thrifted clothes fit well off the rack or do you alter clothes to fit you as well?

  12. I LOVE mixing prints and you did a great job. Nice flared jeans too!

  15. uhmm..I love this, it's so retro chic. The prints are very pretty together! Perfect with your flared jeans


  16. Went through your blog, you are the best thrifter/shopper. Love how you mix things up as well as the accessories.


  17. Love the Kurt Vile reference and your color mix as well as patterns.

  18. Great bag and shoes. You did awesome with the EBEW challenge.

  19. I really like the mix of the two shades of green and the two florals. I tend to mix geometric and softer patterns but this really works well - I'm inspired
