Today I felt like letting my inner rock star out for a bit.  Since I do have to be at work, I toned her down with traditional trousers, but really thought this mix of patterns was fun.  I feel a bit like a corporate Steven Tyler with this scarf.  I wanted to wear my black pointy-toed pumps but realized I had left them at work so out came the booties.

How was everyone's weekend?  My husband shot a wedding Saturday and I came along as assistant.  The rest of the weekend we spent enjoying our town's Labor Day festival – carnival rides, funnel cake, even a parade!  It was nice to have an extra day off to recharge my batteries.

    1. FYI your comment was flagged by Disqus as spam because… well it kind of is. You may have written it with all the right intention, but comments like this are taking advantage of other bloggers to promote your own site and many bloggers will not find that very friendly. Good luck with your giveaway!

    1. I think you can and you should try. We often don’t try certain things in fashion to minimize or camouflage parts of our bodies, but by doing that it sometimes brings more attention to them. Women have curves whether we tuck or not. I hesitated tucking because of my tummy and rear but when I tried it I think it was more flattering to my curves. 🙂

  1. This is a great outfit on you – one of your best! I have several long scarves that I can’t figure out how to wear as I’m only 5 ft. tall – this post has inspired me to try wearing them.

  2. The mix of prints definitely works for me actually! (I am normally a skeptic when it comes to mixing quite different prints but I think because these are both striped (of sorts) it all actually works!) You’ve inspired me to take another look at my own wardrobe.
    Small things I would ideally like to change:
    a) to have seen the scarf tied another way as I’m not sure it does good things for your neck.. (sorry!)
    b) I know you were channelling rock chick but it would be cool to also see the look with your hair pinned up (scruffy chignon rather than sleek pony, so still with that cool vibe) so there’s not quite as much competing with the prints?

    1. I respectfully disagree. The rock star does not worry about competing and “busy”. I think if you put your hair up, the point would be missed. I would actually love to see you drop restraints and amp it up with boots, ragged jeans, and more jewelry for the weekend! Rock on!

  3. Long time reader, very infrequent commenter stopping in to say that I love this!! The first time you wore this blouse it really caught my eye. I would never have the guts to wear something so bold, but I really wish I could because I think it is so striking!! I can’t explain it but it might be my favorite!

    1. You should try it! I have shied away from prints for a long time because I never felt they were as versatile and so memorable, but now that pattern mixing is en vogue it gives more opportunities to be creative with prints, and they become classics 🙂
