I’m back from my Brooklyn breakfast date with Jess and feeling rejuvenated and ready to work, just like I always do whenever I am finished hanging out with this inspirational go-get-’em girl. This morning it was a cool 55 degrees so I felt the need to break out my new wool gray tights. As per usual, my outfit usually develops from one item in particular—today, tights being said item—and so I decided to rock my plaid “winter shorts” with my tall suede equestrian-esque boots. The forecast said it would gradually get warmer, so I opted for no coat, but threw on a wool pinstripe blazer and turtleneck instead, along with my favorite red plaid Christmas scarf to give the muted outfit a pop of color. I popped on the hat for an added touch for fun. I meant to take more detail shots, but my camera battery started to die, but can you see the two patterns of the jacket and shorts against each other? I like the contrast of the three color palettes—red, gray and light tan—mixed together, and the plaid versus stripe. Man, I love pattern mixing.
