I was organizing my closet recently when I realized that this blazer and skirt are almost identical in color and pattern. I like perfectly matching pieces, but I also appreciate the quirkiness of the two pieces being slightly different, and the fact that both were already in my closet and I didn't have to purchase them together. Do you stick to matching pieces only, or would you also wear slightly mismatched patterns?

Blazer: H&M, $15 (similar/plus, similar)
Top: Banana Republic, $40
Skirt: Limited, $30 (similar, same shape)
Shoes: Nine West c/o (similardesigner)
Shoe clips: Jacob Lily c/o
Purse: Emma Fox c/o Ross, $60 (similar)
Approx. dates: Purse and top are 3 years ago, shoes are 2 years ago, blazer is one year ago. Skirt is last fall.
