16 Jan New Blog Design +Mixed Patterns: Paisley and Plaid
I hope you had a wonderful, warm and cozy weekend. I had a medical procedure I won’t go into, other than to say, everyone should get it done when they are 45, every 10 years. I always get nervous during these exams, but surprisingly didn’t need a bit of valium to calm me. The anesthesiologist said ” I will take a nice nap” and off to sleep I went! Boy, if I could only sleep like that at night! So, that was my bit of fun! Otherwise, I went to the gym, along with everyone and their mom who goes after Christmas and New Years. I mentioned before my goals, and started off slowly with weight machines that were ‘shiny and new”, making sure I didn’t overdo it. ( I can have a tendency to be “gung ho”)
Speaking of goals, I wanted to share my new blog design today! I was ready for a change, wanted something “clean” and organized and loved how it turned out. My hubby is the tech-guru, works in IT, and doesn’t lose patience with computers ( not me!) He and I worked together to create this new site. I decided to emphasize in red, the letters “E-D-S” as an inside reminder to me ( with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) that I have come a long way from 9 years ago when I was first diagnosed. So I hope you enjoy the new layout.
Now, regarding my outfit today.. One of my goals in the New Year, pertaining to fashion was to experiment more with pattern mixing. I have done so HERE and HERE, and today wanted to create a layered look mixing a paisley pattern with a plaid green and navy print. Both are smaller sized prints, both navy and green in color. I also wanted to give this look a more casual vibe and added my Sofft combat boots. They are some of the most comfortable pair I own.
Are you being more adventurous with your outfits? Tell me how!
I hope to see you tomorrow for TURNING HEADS TUESDAY FASHION LINKUP!
