    I like how she takes common, ordinary clothes and turns it into a great look by adding shoes that are anything but ordinary.

    The shoes, the dress, the pattern mixing, the layering! Color me in love! Great shot by you as always!

    With those shoes you can do no wrong! I love the crisp red white and navy patterns together. It seems like theres two major looks going; Monochromatic solids, where different shades of the same color are worn head to toe. And patterns in the same color family that clash, but very prettily. Like this.

    I did not know a plaid shirt with a that girlish skirt could look so good! (Canadian Vintage)

    Forget the check, look at those shoes!

    I love this mix and match look. The pieces are different styles but together they go well. I like how the skirt is longer at the back, it makes it flirty :) Those shoes… OMG.

    CRAZY wonderful mix. Rustic meets feminine meets Italiano high style. The shoes are off the charts! I just want to keep looking @ this inspired juxtaposition.

    Love this, esp the way the shoes match but not in your typical matchy matchy way.

    all the colors are there to match yet the values range from one extreme to the other. makes sense yet it doesn’t.

    would never have thought of pairing a pretty floral dress with plaid. i like it.

    I love how she put the proportions together, the continued the look by mixing prints and patterns. It’s very interesting and fun. The shoes set it off. The jacket brings it down to a reality look without loosing the fashion part of the look.

  29. Lydia

    September 28, 2011 at 10:35 pm

    I love those shoes! And the demin, and the check on the shirt. I do the same thing with my dad’s shirts all the time. so comfy!

    Love the shoes!

    The very feminine pattern of the dress mixed with the masculine checker shirt is quite interesting.

    Not too sure about the outfit, but I definitely love those shoes!

    Wow, it’s so unexpectedly cool. I think, if it weren’t for the shoes, this outfit wouldn’t work. So, can someone please identify those shoes….i want one! ;o)

    Those shoes are so fantastic!

    The totally unexpected combination of prints work so beautifully, and made extra ‘fresh’ by those brilliant shoes! Love it!

    Swoon! Who makes the shoes?

  45. LA Film Actress

    September 29, 2011 at 2:05 am

    The shoes transform this entire outfit into high style. Every color in the shoe is reflected in the colors of the outfit. It looks thrown together, but probably this person put a fair bit of thought into this combination.

    Nice framing on the photo as well, Sart! Now someone has to come up with an answer of where these shoes are from. I’m going to guess they’re Balenciaga, but they could be from some other modernist/minimalist designer.

    Very cute! Love the casually clashing prints and layers. But yes, I agree with everyone else here, it’s the shoes that are making it. Wow, those shoes!

    LOVE the jacket-shirt-skirt combo; it’s fresh and charming without being precious or sweet. (Those layered, swooping hems make her legs look reeeeally long, too.) The jury’s still out on the shoes, but they’re definitely interesting, and I love that they’re not made of toothpicks and dental floss.

    September 29, 2011 at 3:11 am

    The shoes! The shoes! The….please some genious tell where me where I can get them! :)

    Oddly enough, this mix does not work for me.

    I love the shoes though but I feel they do not match with the dress and the shirt.

    Kisses from Greece!

    September 29, 2011 at 5:29 am

    I sure does look great, I love how the lower part has a very feminine (and somewhat 30′s) feel to it and the top is casual and masculine. And oh, those shoes!!!

  69. Leila Rawlinson

    September 29, 2011 at 5:52 am

    They are Balenciaga platform pumps. And amazing they are. Love the whole look though.

    The shoes are fabulous! I love the juxtaposition of the different patterns and the soft and hard materials, great autumn look!

    Those shoes (sigh) …. pull together an otherwise frumpy outfit! Well done.

    Brilliant idea! I am trying to do the same myself today as the weather in the UK is not playing ball and being autumny. Love the shoes!

    Am I really the only one who can’t see past the awful, orange fake-tanned legs? I honestly thought she was wearing orange tights on first glance. It completely throws the whole look off for me…

    Having lived in Seattle during the 90′s Grunge era, this reminds me of how the alot of the girls dressed, having bought it all at thrift stores. It’s funny how fashion repeats itself…

  105. Gold Dust Woman

    September 30, 2011 at 11:21 am

    Sorry but I don’t like the check shirt! The combo doesn’t work for me. Too masculine for the gorgeous dress and shoes. Masculine/feminine can work – just look at Diane Keaton in Annie Hall for a true example. I think a gorgeous fringed scarf of shawl would have worked much better.

  106. Milena

    September 30, 2011 at 11:41 am

    I love the jacket and the plaid shirt, the colour of it is really nice.

  107. CaleighB

    September 30, 2011 at 12:06 pm

    I will be rocking something like that quite soon! Those are rocking shoes, but what I am loving the most is the mix of patterns, very Seattle meets Milano!

    Plaid, floral and denim… with THOSE shoes! Brilliant!

    I must say, when the page loaded, I was confused as to why she chose these three combinations because I hadn’t seen the shoes yet. It interesting how, sometimes, just the right pair of shoes pulls the entire outfit together.

    Great shot.
