Conversation #134: Pattern Mixing and Inspired all together (and a little late)

I felt so tired and gross on Friday that I didn't even have the energy to post my challenge outfit.  I went to work and all, but my brainpower was spent trying to breathe and make it through the day.  I am feeling better today, but I thought my face my explode last week.  Anyhow, I tried to combine my "inspired" and "pattern mixing" outfits together.  My inspiration was classic Audrey.  I was planning to channel Lucille Ball because I love her and had an outfit all picked out, but I just couldn't bring my sick, tired self to go through the effort of putting on tights.  I really had no energy.  Also, my print mixing is pretty tame because I have realized a couple of things:  not only am I not great at it, most of my prints are summer appropriate clothing or just non-existent.  Perhaps if I add anything to my wardrobe over the next few months, it should be prints.  In case you missed the "pattern mixing," my shoes are leopard and the shirt striped.  I'll try harder next time!  I even tried to pull my hair back to get a more sleek "Audrey" look though...

Outfit breakdown:
Top, Ann Taylor LOFT, $20
Pants, JCPenney, $10
Leopard Calf hair flats, BP Nordstrom via ebay, $30
