This week is Mixing Patterns Week and it's one of the most challenging weeks for me thus far. I have a really, really hard time mixing patterns and prints. I feel very vulnerable while doing it -- not confident at all -- so it helps me remember what others feel like when I'm pushing them way out of their comfort zone during a consultation. When it comes to clothes and styling, I've felt invincible for a long time, so it's always a good thing to feel humbled again. I guess we're always learning and growing, right?
On Monday, I started my first day as a facilitator for our orientation process at Seattle Children's Hospital. I'll be on rotation to facilitate every 6 to 8 weeks or so. Since mixing patterns is quite hard for me, I thought it may not be the perfect day to start out feeling weird about my outfit. So, I postponed the start of Mixing Patterns Week to yesterday.
Here's Tuesday's look:
