Stripes and aztec print pattern mixing is where it's at (; I could have styled this striped shirt with a pair of jeans and called it good but I wanted to get a bit creative and threw this outfit together 5 minutes before walking out the door for our date night. I'm most creative when I need to do something last minute rather than planning ahead of time. Usually I'm a "night before" outfit planner and spend at least 30 minutes putting mine and Zaden's outfits together for the following day. Planning outfits usually saves time and trouble but sometimes I like to get my creative juices flowing and do something out of the ordinary.

Are you an outfit planner or do you just grab something and walk out the door?
