It’s always exciting to experience a new city! I went to Kansas City, MO for a few days, and it was like a breath of fresh air. I was pleasantly surprised by a city that I found to be more active and cosmopolitan than I had expected. There was more than enough to fill our time here, which included visits to a huge outdoor market that sold a lot of vintage items, a macaroon shop called Bloom’s Baking Company, and Union Station. I chose to take advantage of the crisp early morning weather downtown before the streets were too busy for photos.
This polka dot sweater is a J. Crew piece that I was able to get for a tenth of the retail price. It was in great condition even though I found it at Goodwill, and even had the original tags attached. I wanted to mix patterns for this outfit but to keep the focus on the vintage Nordstrom clutch. When pairing multiple patterns, you want to make sure there is a significant difference in the size. You also want the larger pattern above the smaller one. Notice that the larger pattern on top and the smaller on bottom is more slimming.
