Matchy Matchy

In recent years, I've really embraced the concepts of pattern mixing and throwing in an unexpected color or texture. But every now and again I like to match the items in my ensembles.
In most cases, I don't plan on being "matchy matchy" but it often works out that way because I buy so many similar colors and patterns. I'll wind up bringing something home, and then realize that I have another piece with the same theme.

I almost forgot I had these shoes.  I bought them about 3 years ago, and I hadn't worn them in a while.

This picture is a little blurry, but I like my stance...

Black pants by Chelsea 28.  I bought them in a longer length.  I love the way they elongate my legs.
  I actually went through several sizes before finding a pair that fit.  I typically wear between a 4 & 6, depending on the designer and cut, but I had to do an 8, this go 'round.
The 8 was a little too big, but the 6 was too tight, so I got the 8 tailored and now they fit perfectly. These pants will definitely be in heavy rotation.
Fit matters more than size.  If you're obsessing over the size on a label, then simply remove it.

Thank you for reading, and please come back soon.

Be Fearless. Stay Fashionable. Have Fun!
