I'm pretty sure this is the craziest pattern mixing I've ever done! Alright, let's go ahead and call it "pattern clashing," because I'm not altogether sure that it goes together. Usually if I'm unsure about the general presentable-ness of my outfits I run it by Josh - he's really good about telling me straight out if something looks weird or if something looks great. But he wasn't at home the day I wore this, so I had to trust my own opinion, which was - "This outfit is so fun!" Regardless of whether or not it looked good, I sure enjoyed wearing it.
I walked up to the Rose Garden on Friday after taking these photos, because I wanted to take advantage of the beautiful Indian summer we were having and have a stroll through the roses before they all disappeared. It was so gorgeous up there. Many of the roses were still in full bloom and smelled heavenly, and the fat little honeybees buzzed around lazily and bounced off my head when I leaned in close to smell the flowers. It was, in a word, blissful.
