Two things I don’t often do: layer over button-up shirts and mix patterns.

Granted, stripes and florals isn’t a unique pattern pairing. This one I can do with some confidence. Others I struggle with. Like a pair of gray skinnies with small black polka dots. I can’t seem to mix with those dots. Even my flowy floral button-up doesn’t feel right. Any ideas?
Another thing I’m enjoying lately is mixing gold and silver jewelry. For a long time I wouldn’t do it (just like for a long time I couldn’t bring myself to mix black and brown). Now I’ve made a few gold and silver pieces, like the necklace worn here, to break my self-imposed no mixing rule.
Oh, I also love my hair here. This happened after a couple of days with my hair in french braid twisted bun. Nothing like braids to create waves without a hot curler.
