Paisley With A Touch Of Chambray

I don't know about you, but I have always been a fan of paisley.  
I am talking about the pattern not the singer, although I am a fan of his as well.
 
 When I saw this skirt at the J.Crew outlet this summer I just knew I had to have it.
I paired it with a chambray tuxedo shirt today,
 but can see so many possibilities in it's future.
 I decided to play up the orange in the skirt today with fun accessories and sandals.
Pardon the garage pictures today.
  It started pouring rain as soon as I headed for home today.
Speaking of rain, thanks for all the good thoughts about my friends and family in Louisiana and Alabama. 
 So far, most are just waterlogged and keeping an eye out for flooding.  

Are you a fan of paisley?

Such a cute skirt! Love it paired with the chambray and how you wore the orange accents. The skirt looks silky?

That would be a big yes from me! I love paisley. And I love your skirt, great colours, and I agree, you could style it lots of different ways. xx

Brett, I marvel at your style. I definitely have a thing for paisley! It makes me think of san francisco & the 1960's. :)

Holy cow! I JUST ordered that exact skirt and a chambray shirt for my sister. Shhh, it's a secret. It arrives at her house tomorrow. I pictured her wearing them together. I will have to send her the link to this post after she gets them so that I can show her how to wear it.

xoxo,
Tracy

I never find anything good at the j.crew outlet. OK I never find anything at the price I want to pay at the jcrew outlet. I love that skirt, you look great Brett and I am glad to hear your family is doing alright in the South. Isaac needs to stay away.

You know, I don't think I own anything paisley ... not sure why, I guess I just don't see it that often. But I love it with your fun accessories!

Glad everyone's safe and sound (if not a bit wet!) I don't know who I like better, your gorgeous paisley skirt or the gorgeous Brad!

Oh my, this is a VERY STYLISH outfit Brett! LOVE IT! I love the Paisley pattern, but never wore it :( You know, it is one of these things you like to see on others more than yourself? Oh and about Paisley - yes, big trend next summer (giving away company secrets again ha ha ha) :)

I think your garage pics turned out great, and I love the combo of the chambray shirt and paisley skirt. I couldn't have walked away from it either!

Paisley can be a very versatile print! I love it paired with the chambray shirt - it's really perfect! I have a paisley maxi dress that I love. It's a fun, unexpected print!

Me too! I think paisley is great, although I'm not sure if I have any paisley clothing. I think I tend to decorate with it more-- I had a beloved paisley duvet cover all through college that I replaced with another paisley duvet cover last year.

Peggy said...
