30 x 30 | Day Seven

Have you ever been completely enthralled by someone's outfit and gone to leave a comment and then this pops up:

And after trying to figure out if that's a byrV or byW, you sadly shake your head and exit the page without leaving a comment? ME TOO. This actually happened yesterday and the spam detector outsmarted me at least five times before I just gave up - talk about adding insult to injury. I promise I'm not a robot, I'm just spam detector challenged :(

I got dressed twice before I pulled this on and decided it would work.  I have a love-hate relationship with these pants because I love the color but sometimes I feel that it's so bright that it's hard to wear another bright color with without looking too ROY G BIV.

Print mixing is still kind of terrifying to me - I'm totally envious of people who aren't afraid to jump in and throw on three different patterns and manage to make it work. This polka dot chambray shirt has pushed me a little closer to the deep end though, or at least stretched me to my tippy toes in the middle of the print mixing pool.  Baby steps.

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who's been taking the time to read and leave encouragement on my post - it means a lot :)



  1. So darn cute, girl!!! I LOVE the way you tied up your polka dot chambray- I would have never though of doing it!! But it looks great :) Oh, and you have the spam detector thing turned on, btw ;) But don't worry, I'll always try and figure out a V from a W so I can comment on your outfits!!

  2. You know I love this shirt! I declare it pattern mixing success!

  3. Argh, I can't stand those spam detectors - makes me feel like I can't spell, hehe!

  4. I am still hoping one of those says a dirty word so I can screen shot that sucker! lol Ok the elementary teacher in me saw ROY G BIV and I started singing this song. Beware...it will get stuck in yo head! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gf33ueRXMzQ

  5. omg you cracked me up with that post! I just went through this like 5 min ago and I was like fuck it. Anyway, love the outfit. You are awesome at mixing prints!

  6. I am obsessed with pattern mixing! Stripes and polka dots are a great place to start - I think you nailed it!

  7. YES. get rid of those dang things! a spam comment every few months is worth saving the frustration.

    also, your waist looks TINY in this outfit!
