Patterns x 3

Today I had a nice long lunch with one of my best friends, then a little later I had a three hour Skype date with another of my best friends. I was not the least bit productive today, but time spent with amazing friends is time well spent. I don’t get to see either of them (or any of my other friends) enough. I spend so much time alone in my room doing freelance design, and I know it’s not good for me mentally. I think about all the friends I had in college and how there was always someone around to talk to, and I just miss it so much. I really need to put more effort into getting out more with friends nearby and Skyping/calling those that are far away. I’ve turned into a recluse – someone help!

I went a bit crazy with the pattern mixing in this outfit. I had planned to wear this sweater with the gingham top, but the floral sash was a last minute addition. I saw it hanging in my closet, and it “matched” so well I couldn’t resist. I almost wore it on my head, but opted to use it as a belt instead.

See how else I’ve styled this versatile top here and here, and see the sash worn a different way here.
