Unseasonably Warm (See Jane Wear...Then Forward On)

borrowed Tibi blouse, H&M blazer (last seen here) + pants,  Spike the Punch necklace (c/o)Gucci scarf (old), Chanel flats, Chloe bag, RayBan sunglasses
It was unseasonably warm for a few days last week and now as I type this, the cold gusts of wind have picked up and I'm now eating my words.  55 degrees it's not, but last Friday and Saturday it was--hence the spring-like outfit.  You'll hear no complaints from me, though, as this winter has been suspiciously mild!

I'm participating in Bib + Tuck's Forward Fashion Project (check out their feature in Vogue) where 10 bloggers style 10 items over a 10-week period of time.  Not only is it a great way to reuse fashion, but I'm personally excited to see how everyone incorporates their unique personalities into each piece.  To kick-off, I had the opportunity to style this navy blue, silk Tibi top.  I wanted to play with patterns so decided to top it off with my striped blazer from H&M along with a fun pop of color in the scarf.

I'm so into that layering around the neck: blouse, blazer, necklace, cross-body bag. You look fab and I'm so jealous of the warmer weather!

Such a sweet outfit, Anna! I love the print mixing, and that bag is stunning! Bib & Tuck sounds like such a fun project, I've seen a couple of other bloggers who are participating and I can't wait to see how you all style things! So fun!

I'm well into mixing patterns and colour-clashing at the moment. Yesterday I wore 3 striped items (similar shades) and today I am in red, camel and mustard! Seem to be drawn to combinations which would make my mother scream!

Great print mix- I did this recently with a button-up and a lightweight sweater. Am definitely into this mix-and-match layer thing. :)

Good luck with the Bib + Tuck's Forward Fashion Project!

love integrating seemingly jarring pattern combinations into a look.... the smudged polka dot (paint brush pattern, almost, sort of?) and the striped could clash, with the wrong styling, but working in the same color palette avoids that conundrum.
