Mix and Match

There are certain foods to which we're addicted, and of which we simply cannot get enough. Tomato soup is definitely up there for me. And I love that Crema in Harvard Square has such tasty soups in general because whenever I go there, I end up running into someone whose picture I take for the blog.

We took this picture on the one warm day we had last week. When Emma walked in, I was waiting for my soup. I could see the skirt peeking out from under her coat. Emma ended up sitting outside, and I was so happy to see her with her coat off.

I do hope Emma inspires you to mix patterns. I'm already thinking of how I can spice up my uniform!

The sweater and skirt are from Anthropologie.

Crema also makes the most amazing hot chocolate. I'm a little obsessed.

I love the mix of patterns, and the way the color of her boots works with her outfit. I'm still not quite brave enough to mix patterns, but maybe someday. . .

Hi Abbie. You could start out with little steps. Maybe you could use a scarf to contrast a shirt/top/dress. Or maybe you could use bangles or jewelry to contrast your outfit...before you know it you might just be an expert pattern mixer.

I am loving this look- I thought the outfit was 1 piece. She paired the sweater and skirt fabulously!

I like it here and it works but I'm not brave enough to do it and couldn't get it to look as good as this :-(

Jane--Its's only clothes. You could pull off something like this look, but you have to remember to do it on your terms. I always take inspiration from the people I shoot and think: Hmm, that's interesting, how can I make this outfit mine.
