Something New

Flower Cardigan: Forever XXI.  Brown Tank: Macy’s. Rose Pattern Skirt: Forever XXI.  Blue Tights: Macy’s.  Brown “Riding” Boots: Gianni Bini (Dillards).  Necklace: I have no idea… 

This combo was a bit different for me – I typically wouldn’t do 2 bold patterns together, but I ended up LOVING it!  It pays to try new things!  Since I can’t dress white as boldly during the week, I’ve decided to start trying something a bit more outside my box on the weekends.


I’m a big fan of mixing black and brown, so that was a natural choice for me – and since blue is one of my fave colors, that ended up being a great accent!

In all I am wearing 7 colors:

  1. black (skirt)
  2. brown (tank & boots)
  3. white (skirt)
  4. blue (tights & cardigan)
  5. cream (cardigan)
  6. green (cardigan & necklace)
  7. silver (necklace)


It was such a perfect Fall day today.  If all of Fall was like this, I might just give up my “summer-girl” ways.

You look stunning in this, seriously. I love this sweater, the tights and the riding boots. And on you, it's pure genius! I love all your looks but this must be my favorite!

Fabulous pattern mixing. Everyone is bold enough to try this, except me!! I need to hop on the bandwagon and start mixing things up.

You look wonderful!

That is a very cool outift, and kudos for daring to mix patterns. I am never sure how to do it, but it looks very funky and maybe I should be braver!

Love this!! I would never in a million years think those patterns went together, but you have proven me wrong- it is such a lovely combination.

Thank you so much for stopping by La Rue Neuve and I'm so glad you like it. I actually do wear most of those outfits to work. I am really lucky that my workplace is pretty open minded. And it's become kind of a work place guessing game: "What is Christen wearing today?" :)

Love this outfit. The combination of prints is executed flawlessly!

At first I didn't like this look, too missmatched and a lot of patterns and colors. But then I looked again and Liked it.
