For a couple of years now there has been a trend of clashing prints and straying away from the normal "this goes with this" rule that people used to mainly follow. I've been a fan of the rules and the broken rules because both have lead to the creation of inspiring looks, I just hadn't ventured too much into the world of broken rules. When I put on this dress and looked in the mirror, I felt like it has a bit too safe and it needed a little "je ne sais quoi" to spice it up a bit. I took out every statement necklace I own from their boxes and tried on almost every single one, although some of them looked good with the dress, it was still generally a
boring safe lookand I was in a particularly experimental mood. I went through all the new items that I had bought to see if I could find something to salvage it and this striped blazer stood out to me. At first I was hesitant because of the different stripe patterns and color scheme, but I threw it on for the heck of it and fell in love with the final look. It might have been %70 due to the fact that I had fallen in love with the blazer the first time I put it on in the changing room at Target, and %30 due to actually looking not so bad. The final touch were the shoes, I went for a classic style and color as to not deter away from the top part of the outfit, and also because OMG they so comfyyyy and I'm allll about the comfyyy now. My feet do not need to suffer for fashion, you hear me pretty blue flats from Betsey Johnson which have been sitting in my closet for years until I can find a way to make you comfortable enough to wear to my parking lot- but that's another story on its own.

I wore this outfit to the #YallaBye Iftar hosted by the Social Media Awards (which is totally happening early next year in Beirut) at Ahwak Dbayeh in honor of HMA Tom Fletcher, the British Ambassador who will be leaving Lebanon. As far as politicians and ambassadors go, I haven't met a ton of them, but they all seem a little too full of themselves (judging their personality and not their work/ideologies). Mr. Fletcher on the other hand is just so casual and nice, you feel like you can chill and have a beer with him while watching a game. Lebanon will definitely miss him, I know I will :)
Do you like mixing up patterns or do you like to play it safe?
