This is also a [kind-of] three-way pattern mixing, too -- I was drawn to the bright poppy colors and large-scale floral print (#1) of this dress, and especially how the impressionistic rendering is very much ikat (#2) in style. Then, top it off (bottom it off?) with the argyle tights (#3). The brown oxfords are a recent thrift score, and I was quite pleased to find that they color-match well with the tights, which I've had for ages.

To be completely honest, it wasn't exactly the same outfit each time -- the second day I was cold, so I had a green sweater over the dress & under the jacket, and today was gloriously springy, so the dark tights & oxfords were swapped for cropped leggings and crochet skimmers. Still, variations on a theme, which is now one of my favorite outfits.
We've talked about repeating outfits before, but what about tweaks? What do you do with your favorite ensembles -- wear 'em strictly the same each time, or change things up a little?
