This look excited me! You guys know how I love patterns and mixing them. Well when they are the same pattern it makes things even more interesting! So I was texting with a friend and he thought it was a dress. Hence the title, 'Optical Illusions,' things that are not as they seem. Its not! It is a shirt/skirt combo. The skirt I have had for several years now and honestly I love it all the same. It is comfortable, bold, and I have restyled it mannny times! So it has definitely paid itself off! (Best part? I believe I found it at Target! So it was already a great deal!)
The shirt is also from Target, but they were not sold together. I just had a funny urge to pair them together. I like the small difference in the stripes. And the way it flows so naturally, it does look like it could be a dress!
Then to add a bit more intensity to the look, I have a striped bag that I just couldn't resist pairing! The different directions of the stripes add a stark contract, while continuing on with the stripe pattern.
This makes for a very bold look! I'm looking forward to wearing to shows or events -once we are good for that!
I thank you for reading!
