A new outfit from Catherine Summers of Not Dressed As Lamb, whom we introduced to YLF in June 2013.

Combining two bold patterns with a third, more subtle one, is a great way of getting your pattern-mixing fix without it feeling too overwhelming. Here, Catherine has paired a mock-neck Fair Isle sweater in striking colours with relaxed fit cropped plaid trousers. The earthy brownish khaki colour of the pants works well with the brighter olive and white in the sweater. The fiery tomato red part is echoed in our blogger’s long-sleeved tee peeking out from under the top, and her unstructured satchel that adds softness to the look. Catherine introduces a third pattern with her navy wool coat that has a subtle, brighter blue pinstripe running through it. The darker blue matches the blue of her sweater, while the tailored shoulder adds structure. Laceless white platform sneakers bookend the white in the sweater and add that on-trend Sporty Luxe touch. A newsboy cap in shades of brown doesn’t match but goes well with the trousers. Catherine’s pigtails peeking out from under the hat add to the playful Sporty vibe. A collection of mismatched earrings and subtle brown-red lippy complete the look.
