Palm Trees and Snake Skin
So speaking of palm trees, I bought this shirt years ago and hardly ever wear it. This may be my second time wearing it in like 10 years. And then there's my snake skin clutch and bangle that I bought from Victoria's Secret, also many moons ago. I'm not sure why I never thought to pair the two together. I love the feel it gives me of being stranded on an island or beach surrounded by palm trees, but of course no snakes, lol. But the mix of the two prints kind of gives an animalistic feel. Plus I'm also a fan of green and brown, it's just not a combination I think of often. I'm mainly drawn to black or vivid colors like fuchsia, yellow, deep purple tones, etc.
Last year I challenged myself to add more color to my wardrobe and I've done pretty good with that challenge. Now I'm challenging myself to mix patterns. I love that I'm enjoying fashion and having fun with it again. For years it was just all black and my work uniform which was either black, gray or tan. I'm dipping a toe again by mixing prints via my accessories. Each step will be another toe and eventually my whole foot, thus becoming more bold with mixing prints.
