3-ring circus, or, fashion fail?

   I think I got overambitious with this outfit. Fun graphic tee + stripes! Layering! Tights + sneakers!  And make the sneakers not an unobtrusive neutral, but bright pink!
 Rebecca Beeson long-sleeve tee (Costco, old)
   "The Day the Fire Brigade Went on Strike" tee (Threadless)
   striped skirt and tights (F21)
   Puma sneakers
    After examining my tights + sneakers pins more closely, I realized that I COMPLETELY missed how simplicity made the look work. Solid tops and bottoms and a restrained color palette, by and large, kept things simple and fresh. My favorite is the third: I think the drapey pink dress is so cute!

I did marginally better reproducing this cute, cozy and simple look from What Would a Nerd Wear.

    I think this outfit would have worked better with a plain black shirt -- it would have made the outfit less busy and accented the pink sneakers. In the meantime, I'm adding a pair of simple black sneakers to my wish list ...
