OOTD :: of turning 42, favorite colors and pattern overload




This week is brought to you by Anne @ SpyGirl’s Pattern Overload theme. (See how I commemorated Memorial Day and fulfilled the theme simultaneously here.)

Today I give you a repeating floral diamante, a graphic tee and multicolored spats. If that’s not pattern overload, I don’t know what is.

Bonus #1 is that today’s outfit incorporates two of my current fave colors: TARDIS blue and chartreuse.

Bonus #2 is that I’m incorporating an older fandom to show my geek diversity (it’s not always all about Doctor Who around here, ya know!)

Bonus #3 is that I’m uber comfy but also satisfyingly quirky at the same time. Goes to show that with age comes great wisdom: I now feel I can confidently maintain a singular style without surrendering to pain and discomfort.

I’m celebrating my 42nd birthday today, so even though I’m at work and grading senior presentations, I’m giving myself a break and treating today like a Wordless Wednesday. If you want your regular wordy fix, why not head on over to Alex @ Undergraduate Style? I’m guest posting over there.
