What I Wore Today 08/10/2012 (Meet Hazel)

Meet Hazel outfit: ruffled floral dress, vintage cape-cut plaid jacket, knee socks, Wanted brown leather oxfords

We're doing apparel moves at work, setting up everything for fall. We have three apparel concepts (certain kinds of girls who wear certain things), and for the next three weeks we're having fun by "dressing the concept." This is my outfit for "Meet Hazel," our front-of-store fall concept about a textile designer in Scotland who loves wooly sweaters, rich shades, and pattern mixing.

I wouldn't normally pair these two pieces together, but I thought Hazel would, and I found that I really, really liked it. It's always fun to mix things up a little by stepping outside your comfort zone. Don't you think?
