Mixing It Up

Mixing prints continues to bring me great joy.  And among my favorites to combine are plaid and polka dots (when I’m not just mixing different plaids with each other).  I can’t quite put my finger on what about this makes me so gleeful, but I’m going to continue to run with it as long as the inspiration maintains.

Adding stripes to the blend only ups the ante.  And I’m not afraid to do that.

Nor am I afraid to take my shoes off on the cold concrete (though much less cold than if I were on the East Coast right now, thank the Lord).  After all, it can be vaguely more comfortable than high heels.

Nor am I (apparently) afraid to mix my own plaids with my son’s (who completely coincidentally has his matching plaid on as well).  I couldn’t have planned it better myself (if I’d planned it; which I swear I did not).  I was too busy mixing my own.
