CAN A BAD HAIR DAY INSPIRE AN OUTFIT?

Can a bad hair day inspire an outfit --- uhhh, YEAH! Check me out today for example.

Woke up with messy hair that wanted to LIVE in it's uncooperative glory. It wanted to be tied up and frayed, honey. It wanted to have loose pieces dangling every which way... and no bun was gonna' stop it! So why fight it- Let "messy" BE the look.

Threw on some jeans that are as hole-y and piece-y as my hair.  Hole-y and piece-y are technical words, of course. 

Knowing my whole look would mostly be slopa-dops - and for visual interest, I put on this colorful and printed midriff top. Maaaayyyybe a little sex appeal will get me through this messy day? 

But alas, I don't have the courage to show my belly all day, also - the look wouldn't be complete as is... enter an oversized men's button up to continue embracing the messy vibes.

Yes, this Rag and Bone button up is from the men's department... check out the fresh design deets. A lil' fresh polka, a lil' white sleeve, a rustic button moment! 

And then when I get shy,  I'll just button this bad boy up and look casual 

A LITTLE STYLE MATHEMATICS

Here's my math equation: if you wear several pieces that don't go together (with good taste and fit, of course) eventually it'll all cancel each other out. Is it true in all cases? Probably not. Is it true in this case? You be the judge! 

Full look: 

What you're seeing here is a SUPER boxy (and wrinkled) men's t-shirt worn with silk pants, Air max sneaks and a mixed fabric moto jacket.... woof. 

This tee wouldn't normally be paired with these pants. It's large, cotton and not particularly chic on it's own. But methinks the tee makes the pants more wearable and casual. Silk Pant + Tee = cancel out the fancy.

A little front tuck, juuuuust in the front. 

Could have gone with a heel - but picking up the pink in the print and mirroring it in the kicks. 

Jacket time - Check the leather sleeves and varsity moment at the cuff and hem. It's a good moment, baby.

The prints have ZERO to do with each other... but they're canceling each other out as if to say "we aren't two different prints mashed together. No! We are all one print."

What do you think about this combo?
