Pattern Mixing

Transitional dressing always presents a challenge for me. For one, I’m absolutely sick of all my winter clothes. One way I’ve been mixing things up quite literally is to really play a lot with pattern mixing. This adorable tiger-print circle skirt from Gwynnie Bee had the exact color match to my new WhoWhatWear for Target polka dot tee-shirt. I just want to pause for a moment and rave about how great it is that the WhoWhatWear line is for plus and straight sizes and I found my pieces along with the whole collection – not segregated to the plus size sad corner.

Of course I’ve been accessorizing everything lately with TONS of enamel pins. I am allll about the #pingame right now and my waxed denim moto jacket is a perfect place to display them all. All details for the pins are below.

It’s the little things that keep me feeling good at my office desk job.  It’s sometimes a bit weird to dress up in corporate drag and so I wear my tattoos out and put on accessories that wink at my non-corporate life. My lovely friend Natalie of Bake & Destroy lovingly refers to these little rebellions as “Office Punk.”  I’ll take it. 

And so my little object today is this lovely Heart Lolli Pin from Tuesday Bassen. I adore her zines and little objects. Very girl gang. Femme. Perfection. You also get a little sneak peek at my Moon Phase Baggu bag (it’s my go-to carry-all in my purse) and of course my favorite denim jacket from the GAP a million years ago.

Someone asked yesterday about my nails – they’re an essie no-chip color that I didn’t catch the name of. I am currently growing out my (real!) nails into little sharp almonds. 

Not a lot of make up today – just some NARS lip pencil and Buxom Mascara (and Mac studio fix always). I mostly just wanted to share this awesome Tuesday Bassen pin and encourage y’all to check out more of her work!
