Aussie Curves: Mixing Patterns

I really do love to mix patterns. I had this colourful and bright outfit planned for this weeks challenge but I ended up with this more everyday pattern-clashing look instead!

Top: Lily and Lou
Jeans: Torrid
Jacket: Crossroads
Necklace: TS14+
Watch: eQuip
Flats: Crocs
Clutch: Vintage Glomesh

I wore this outfit to a work conference all day today. Its nice to be out of uniform and in something more comfy. But even when we get to wear free clothes like this, I need to make sure I still look professional(ish). That's where my super-jeans come in. I seriously can't get enough of these Torrid Stiletto jeans, they are INSANELY comfortable and such an awesome fit!

These wicked flats are actually made by Crocs. Its no secret I have a soft spot for those ugly, ugly sandals- they are the only thing I can last a full twelve hour shift in. Soooooo, when I found out they had cuter (but still comfy and squishy) versions, I grabbed some!

I snapped up this TS14+ necklace in one of their fab BOGO50%OFF accessory sales and its been so easy to quickly throw into an outfit. The clashing stripes and spots give the look so much more punch. Meanwhile keeping the colours relatively tame, I could add some pattern-mixing fun and still keep the outfit-workplace safe.

And of course- how mad is this watch!!!! Not even 5 minutes into these photos though- the band broke! Bummer!

How do you pattern mix?
Do you have a work uniform??
