Perfect Pattern Mixing

I don't do this often, but sometimes I get a really great idea for an outfit that I couldn't get away with in real life, but love in theory, so I play dress-up and try it on. This is one of those outfits--too edgy for work, too professional for church or a night out. But I liked it a lot, so I took photos and I'm sharing it here on the blog. 

This outfit was born when I decided to pattern-mix my striped blazer with a floral tank. That alone wouldn't have been too edgy, but when I stepped it up and tucked my blouse into these straight-leg trousers and added peep-toe booties, it became a high-fashion look. Well, not THAT high of fashion, but high fashion compared to my relatively classic style :)
