Sweater c/o Conversation Pieces | Pants: Zara | Shoes: Madewell {similar} | Scarf: Target | Bag: Mimi Boutique

Was this the longest week ever or what?  Hooray for it being Friday!!  This week started out with a nice 70 degrees on Monday, snow and 30 degrees on Wednesday and now it’s about 10 degrees outside.  That’s Missouri weather for you.  It makes it all the more important to check the weather in the morning before getting dressed.  Except the office is perpetually cold so I pretty much have to dress for cold weather every weekday anyways.  Is your office an icebox as well?

In this outfit I’m wearing my three favorite patterns to mix: stripes, florals, and dots.  Frankly, these patterns take up the bulk of patterns in my closet.  Along with gingham as well.  I’m hoping that all of these patterns will last for a very very long time.  But I’m also looking for some new fun patterns to spice up my wardrobe.  What are your favorite patterns right now?

P.S. Have you entered the $30 credit Daisy Rae Boutique giveaway and the Chromatic Gallerie red pumps giveaway?

Happy February! Have a great weekend!

    OH my goodness, I have NOTHING to complain about with the VERY MILD bi-polar weather versus yours!! That is insane!! :) But provides opportunities for a wide range of seasonal clothing :)

    Love this entire outfit and my draw dropped at your CUTE flats :) I love the combo of teal and nude!!

    I am a huge fan of mixing patterns. I would love to have that orange bag, it is absolutely perfect.

    It is another wintery day here too. We were at 7 degrees this morning and now I think we are in the teens.
