Trend Spin: Plaids, Checks, & Stripes

 I am so excited to be Guest Hosting the Trend Spin Challenge hosted weekly by Walking in Memphis in High Heels and The Fashion Canvas! These two girls provide a wonderful source of fashion inspiration. I also want to welcome back Laura from maternity leave. Make sure you go stop by their blogs check it out! 

This week's theme is plaids, checks, and stripes. I decided to do a little pattern play using subtle patterns. These pants are a muted pinstripe pattern while my tank is stripes. I added a white sweater to tone down the stripes so you just see a peek hanging out. To me this keeps the outfit from being too busy and distracting for m office. As I was uploading these photos I couldn't help but wonder how a blazer would look layered on top. I may have to give that a try for a couple of meetings at work next week!

Do you mix patterns? What is your favorite way to do so?

So now to the fun stuff. I hope you link up with us today and check out some of the other blogs linking up as well! This is a great way to not only gain new fashion inspiration, but to meet some wonderful bloggers as well!
