More Stripes, Dots and Orchid

I think I need to take a break from stripes, dots and orchid for awhile.
It seems like one, both or all three are showing up in every outfit I have been wearing lately!
I guess when you have been shopping your closet for two months
 you truly pick up on the patterns you have
 in your likes and dislikes.  
I am going to put forth an effort to break my on-repeat cycle,
 but I am afraid there might not be enough in my closet to do so. 
This goes to show that we really do need
 to take inventory of what is in our closets.
But then again...
If you really like something,
 why not wear it all the time!

Do you find that you gravitate to the same kinds of outfits day after day??
What do you have a lot of in your closet?

Sidenote:
I was featured over on My New Favorite Outfit 
 yesterday as an example of an inverted triangle body type.
Go check out what Ginny has to say on styling for my particular body type.

shirt-Old Navy
sweater/cords-Loft

Isn't it interesting that you have so much orchid? Isn't that the color of the year? Go you!

Can I borrow this outfit for my trip? So cute! And I need another pair of shoes to throw in my suitcase! LOL

You're having so much fun with orchid! I never thought of styling the color into pants! I'm inspired to say the least--thanks!

Congrats on the feature. I will head over once I comment.

Please keep the Orchid going since it looks great on you. I love the jewelry and bright pop of color on your nails.

I really like that you are not afraid of pattern mixing and bold colors! We all gravitate towards certain pieces I'm sure. I love wearing bright colors too!

Stripes and polka dots--a fave pairing of mine! And, you look fab in your orchid (it's the spring's hottest hue!)! :) T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com
