Lots of pictures for you today! Mixing patterns is one of my favorites. The graph paper shirt and pinkish pants don't seem like they would go together, but I like the combo anyway! It's light enough to get away with, but interesting enough to make you take a second look at the patterns. And then the boots, of course. With ankle boots, I like breaking up the line by cuffing the pants right above the top of the boots, or adding some sort of exposed sock. And also exposing the waistband of the pants somehow, most easily done with swipe of shirt-tucking. I think this makes me look taller and my legs look longer. At a very average 5'4, I'll take the tricks I can get. photo DSCN3041_zpsf9c0a6c7.jpg  photo DSCN3043_zpsa71602e2.jpg  photo DSCN3047_zps07996bb0.jpg  photo 96964a66-3dc8-477e-a417-782764fb813c_zpsd11e91d3.jpg  photo f2b18951-8eed-49ea-9f55-39d1eaeae506_zps621a88d8.jpg  photo DSCN3056_zpsa7ef2c95.jpg  photo b6169cfc-a8a4-4908-8ba1-db681d876495_zps52647a73.jpg
