Style Perspectives - Styling a Patterned Blouse with NeutralsMarch 23, 2016, by Abbie Ginther
Let's start with a recap of the fun and fabulous White Pants Styles with Sarah from last week, shall we? Here's how the ladies of The Blended Blog styled their pale pants:

And last but not least, with the most number of hits this week... and I'd like to preface this with the fact that I am not just using this platform to self-promote, but that I truly believe people were just amazed to see me out of my pajamas...
It's me! Abbie from Grumbling Grace!

Patterns should be marketed as the camouflage of mothers everywhere masquerading as put-together humans.
Now that my secret's out, I've been working to wear everything in my closet and post my weekly outfits, so I'm going to be hitting you with a few different combos that work for me. Here's how I've been styling my patterns with neutrals for spring in Saskatchewan, Canada.
|The awesome Deena from Shoes to Shiraz took these photos on a balmy spring afternoon in Saskatoon. I love these grey cargo pants and I consider forest-green booties to be a neutral. Comfy and the baby loves chewing on that necklace. Win win. Please note that I'm wearing a Fitbit. Next step, actually get moving.|
I blame Deena from Shoes to Shiraz for what happened next. The rest of the afternoon was a happy blur but I woke up with a new dress that I'm going to call a "blouse" and here it is. In the words of Edith Piaf, "Non. Je ne regrette rien."
|My friend Katie told me to stand in front of my garage so I did. I feel like there's a message somewhere about heads in ovens and not jumping off bridges but her advice is pretty sound, so back off, moms. Also, florals are a fun way to play with pattern for the spring. Here's how I paired mine with 6000 calories at the amazing Little Bird Patisserie this last Sunday.|
|Colour and more colour (that's 'color', U.S. friends) may mean that the only neutral here is me. I'm in neutral because I haven't slept or had enough coffee yet. Let's try again.|
|It's not weird at all to be laughing at my hallway while holding a selfie stick. This is a strange strange time we're living in, friend.|
|More hallway ponderings. Reflecting on the quiet and calm of 36 teenagers in my classroom over two children at home. Le sigh.|
|Selfie face. Why?|
