Stacy and Clinton always like to say that things don't have to match in an outfit, they can "go" and I'm modern enough to get it - but when I hold two (or, goodness gracious, three) pieces up to each other and they are a perfect color match, my brain gets sparked out and I can't compute anything else sensibly. That. Must. Be. An. Outfit. Or I'm done.
Like matching my shoes to my purse to my jewelry. Or my skirt to my shirt to my sweater. All together. Like in Friday's outfit post. Which I am still very proud of. It was obviously all done together intentionally. But after listening to a day of "it ALL matches!" comments, I kind of felt a bit yeah, I know ... ('Cause if that isn't a feeling, I don't know what is). And I get it - too matchy sometimes looks costume-y. What's a Type A borderline OCD girl to do?
When you ladies put together your outfits, are there things you know you sometimes overdo but still like to do them anyways? And have you looked over a old outfit and thought, that was way too much?
