It's a Stripaisley Kind of Day

Stripaisley - meaning: to combine stripes and paisley in one outfit!
I wore this outfit to a going away party for a friend this weekend.
You know I love pattern mixing
 and
 I couldn't resist this combo.
As you can see the rain put a damper on our outside activities, especially since we were supposed to be hanging by the pool.
But it didn't put a damper on our fun.
Oh Hello, Joe.
You never know when he is going to pop up.

I decided to leave this beautiful neckline open,
 but piled on the arm candy to make up for it.
 
Would you mix stripes and paisley?
Have you mixed stripes and paisley?

I love these shorts more and more. They look great with the paisley. I don't have any paisley, but I would mix the two in small doses if I did! Heather
