As I’ve been going through these style challenge prompts, I’ve noticed that I have a significant imbalance in my wardrobe.  Today’s prompt was playful plaid, and I had to look pretty hard to find something – and I actually really like plaid.  Apparently, I just like polka dots and florals WAY better.  So, when those prompts swing around, I’ll be on top of it.

I liked this outfit because it was fairly simply – I mean, all black.  But, with the mixed patterns of the plaid scarf and polka dot shoes (I just can’t stay away), there was an element of the playfulness the prompt dictated, which the pleats on the bottom of my skirt only enhanced.  I really do enjoy mixing patterns, and when they are the same colors and separated by a long area (like, you know, my entire body), it’s pretty simple.
