Food Fashion and Flow: Clashing plaids and stripes

Clashing plaids and stripes


 Now that the holidays are over, I have been working hard on getting my sweet tooth in check. My green smoothies made with my nutribullet have just about erased my obsession with all things sugary. I hung out with a friend in Little Tokyo and passed up the Green Tea Mochi Ice Cream that I usually can't resist. Little Tokyo has so many great restaurants if you love all varieties of Asian food, which I do! This is such a great spot to grab some tea or have a great lunch or dinner. I will be posting about some of my favorite dining spots in this area soon:-)

I have some very subtle pattern mixing going on with with my stripes and plaids. It is a clash of sorts, but I think it works. I am participating in a link party with DC Style. Join us by clicking here

Do you have any holiday eating to undo? LOL
 Holiday Hips: courtesy of Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas dinner and all of those boxes of candy, cookies, and cakes that kept magically arriving on my doorstep during the holidays

Plaid shirt: thrifted, handbag: Sharif, Striped tank: H&M, Boots: Macys


These boots are so comfortable. I have been wearing them quite a bit. Don't you love a comfortable pair of boots?

Checking out the scene
Are you a fan of mixing patterns?

Great pattern-mix. How very forward of you. This is such a stylish casual outfit. Very real, and good idea for those of us who don't like dressing up.

I definitely have some holiday eating to undo. We had full dinners for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day! I'm transforming into a crunching machine. Love the pattern mixing.

I love the mix of prints! I also love juicing. We got a juicer a year ago and it is amazing how wonderful it is. Totally a worthwhile investment!

i have been having a green smoothie daily for about 2 years now and love them. I had a total sugar overload as well over the holidays and I am doing a detox to try and get rid of the sweet tooth cravings.

Love this plaid shirt and I am a huge fan of plaid & stripe together. Great casual outfit!

I love how you've put these patterns together. The black and white stripes are a terrific base for the plaid. I just thrifted my first plaid shirt over the holidays and I'm loving the inspiration this post provides!

That's interesting combination. I thought it would be to busy to mist plaids and strips. The way you display it...is kool.
