Well, I was waiting for it and it came. Another cold snap hit Texas yesterday, but I feel like I shouldn't really complain since there isn't any snow or ice involved.
I have kind of lost my winter styling/outfit spark. I have been focusing on our beach vacation and upcoming spring looks due to our recent 75+ degree weather. Most of my winter attire has been sort of shoved to the back of my closet and mind.
I should have known better than to think we were finished with Winter. It is Texas after all. One day we are wearing flip-flops and shorts and two days later layered up with rain boots and beanies. Gotta love the spontaneity of it all.
Anyway, this outfit isn't a new combination for me. I am a big fan of mixing prints and patterns, especially when I feel as though my closet ideas are spent and I need to get creative with what I already own.
Camouflage mixed with plaid are two of my favorite prints to mix. I think it's because they are such an unexpected team. They have come through for me time and again....both together and separately. So, if you're suffering from the winter blues and finding yourself in an outfit funk, try spicing things up by combining unpredictable prints you already have hanging in your closet
Happy mixing and meshing.

Here is another camo/plaid mix from almost two years ago when we were in London. My, oh my, time flies!! Reading through this post again put all kinds of smiles on my face. :)
