Try-it-out Tuesday: animal and patchwork

D&Y scarf and Salt Works jeans, Ross
Ann Taylor tie-neck top, passed down by E.I.
Fossil "Kenya patchwork" belt, Goodwill, $2.99 (retail: $46)

     I continue my pattern-mixing experiments by seeing whether my belt and scarf will play nicely with each other. I think this looked better in my head - while I like the contrast from the belt, I also wonder whether it cuts me in half to have something light in the middle. 

     It's amusing to think that just about a year ago, I was just starting to understand the wonder that is a belt. A year ago, I also didn't own any scarves, much less one with several different animal prints. Katie of Hems for Her owns the same scarf, and I was inspired to take it out for a spin after seeing her style it here. (Thanks, Katie!) I'd also like to try styling this scarf with a necklace, as she did, but I decided to try out the scarf and belt business first.
