Pattern MixingI've always been more of a solid-colours-and-simple-shapes kind of girl, and pattern mixing takes me out of my comfort zone a bit. So, it's probably not a surprise that I keep the patterns small(ish) and opt for a limited colour palette.
Oh yes, I might be mixing patterns but I'm going all matchy-matchy as far as colours are concerned. It's because I like harmony, and things that blend together organically and easily. Contrast is not my thing.
Casual and pulled-together
Maybe I'm a bit of a control freak: I want everything to look pulled together, as if there was some sort of a master plan. But a master plan that is almost accidental and spontaneous: something that just sort of came together naturally, without too much effort.
If I had to describe my style personality, that would be it: casual but pulled together. My biggest fear (when it comes to outfits, that is) is looking sloppy.
HarmonyI don't worry about dressing age-appropriately, and I don't give a damn about women's magazines telling me to dress this way or that. I know what suits me, and I know what I like. And what I aim for is a successful synthesis of the two. Dressing is always a compromise of sorts: the ideal look has to be modified so that it also feels good to wear. And when something looks good and feels good, it looks natural and harmonious. It's looks like me.
This is why I like this outfit: it's casual and easy-going, yet everything blends together seamlessly. That's what I want to look like, and that's how I want to feel like. Not a tall order, then: letting my outfits reflect my goals in life?
