Wait! What! Another Stripes and Checks Outfit on A Labour of Life? Shocking right, I think this must be my new school uniform. Something about this pattern mix that just makes my heart happy. Do you have a pattern mix that you just can’t get enough of?
My History of Stripes and Checks
I really have made a habit of combining Black and white patterns over the years, flannel checks, in the winter.wide stripes in spring, muted checks in the snow, long skirts in Quebec, fun dresses in the rain, mixes in the Summer and even with a sweater. Lord I do have a bit of a fetish with this combination. And this is just a small sampling of my fascination.
This is one of my favourite things about blogging. Having an actual picture diary of what I was wearing and what I was doing. It is almost as fun as going through Mom’s photo albums except the blog doesn’t go back quite that far.Do you see your blog as your journey through life?
Todays Look and the White Boots
I swear I have not worn these boots four days in a row. It’s true, I took a break yesterday and wore green lol. In Real Life (IRL) I wore these boots for three of the last four days of posts but I really wanted to share this look today. While this pattern is often on the blog it is a first for these pants. My widelegged stripe pants, that I adore are almost beyond repair, The seams have let go in a way that no amount of sewing or stitch witchery will help. On the hunt for replacements for months now I actually finally found two options. A wide leg version from H& M and this pair from Forever 21.
Me being me, got both, so stay tuned for more fun looks featuring strip pants. So for today’s look, I have worn this blouse from Forever 21 a lot I know as well as the tank from H&M, but with new pants and white boots it’s a totally new look. And wait till tomorrow wait and see how it all looks when I add a Houndstooth coat to the mix.
