A classic black and white houndstooth skirt paired with a scribble-check top. I’m a big fan of mixing patterns. Some would argue that a busy top demands a plain bottom to calm the look down. But I’m going pattern crazy on everything but the boots. And it works! Mostly due to both items being in the same colors. I’ve added just a hint of red to liven up the look. Houndstooth skirt from Phase Eight, cropped blouse from Balenciaga, tote from Celine and boots from Oscar de la Renta.
