It's snowy, and blowy, so I decided to keep the colours to neutrals to express my dislike of this not-over-winter-ness. However, I forgot that regardless of colour, some people see flowers and think: "Spring". One certainly grumpy guy in the elevator admired my optimism for spring (at least I'm assuming he's referring to the skirt, as there was no context to the comment what so ever!).
So let's pretend that flowers MUST mean spring, then not only was the pattern inappropriate, the entire outfit was inappropriate for the activities of the day. I spent my morning moving big dirty boxes. If I look harried, that is why!
And look! I'm mixing pattern! Yeah!
