Matchy-matchy Me


I'm a non-conformist.  (dUH, Paula!)  The reason why I say this is because now that not matching colors is what's vogue; today I'm matchy-matchy.  I even matched the circles in my skirt with the circles in my shirt.  And I matched my earrings! 

sandals~ Nordstrom Rack
skirt, shirt, bolero~ Marshall's
earrings~ made


This is contrary to my asymetrical style, but both styles have balance.  And I am feeling very balanced today. Are you?

Im sorry I didn't get the links in the response to the Huffington Post article, but I at least wanted our names in there! I am barely functioning this week..I guess I really am getting old!!

  2. ooh yes, I'm very balanced perched here on my bed in leopard-print flannette pj pants and black cardi;)). Good on you for going against the trend - I love the swirls on your top and the circle-patterned skirt is simply delish!! Looking so fresh for summer Paula:)) xo

  4. You look so sunny and summery today! I heart that skirt so much. You still look just like you, not like a conformist at all, just like the lovely Paula!

  5. That skirt is a favorite of mine.

    I think you've been pretty subtle with the matchyness, it didn't pop out at me right away.

    I like your stone wall. I always think about the line good fences make good neighbors when I see a rock wall.

  8. I love a little match-matchy myself. I think it's gone a bit overboard with the not-matching trend, I see pictures of some of these gals, usually much younger, and everything is out of whack and I don't think it looks stylish at all, it looks like a train wreck. I love your look here. I just read your post on wigs, which was hilarious. I think the tiny falls on you look great! I have a bubblegum pink disco dolly wig (a super short bob), that I bust out on Halloween. Oh, btw, if you get a chance, I just posted the Bergdorf windows. I'm so curious as to what you think of them since I know you have done window design.

  11. The colors balance each other and the shirt ruffles are similar to the skirts shapes.
    Overall, a great outfit!

  15. I love the mix of textures--makes up for the matchy matchy. Honestly, I never quite understood the non-matchy thing...

  17. Although you are match match, you have done it in a very skilled way. For example the texture of the circles on the shirt are completely different from the skirt. So you have maintained a balance in an unbalanced way :))

  18. I love this look on you! There is nothing too matchy until you point it out. It just looks "put together". And I am a huge fan of yellow... so you had me at Yel-low. ;) So I guess I am not feeling so balanced.... LOL! Cheers!
