Style Perspectives: Patterns and Neutrals

Week four of Style Perspectives?  Hard to believe!!  This series has been so much fun!!  Last week's link up was a hit and everyone's interpretations turned out great!  Here's a reminder....

Today over at The Blended Blog, it's Abbie's star turn...showing a neutrals with patterned tops!

For me there was no question when I heard the words neutral and pattern what I would wear.  Most weeks I am showcasing what I'd wear out for fun.  This week I have a wear to work look to share.  This is by no means a new outfit.  In fact, I've had it for many years.  But being a neutral with a classic pattern, I don't think it will ever go out of Style!!

I love it for a number of reasons...

  • It's bright and screams spring to me!
  • I can wear it with or without the cardigan and it will still look great (if I don't say so myself!)
  • And when I bought this outfit, the saleslady at Loft told me, that I did such a great job matching it, that I should work there!  That's always stuck with me!  HA!!

So without further a-do today's perspective...
