When Patterns become Neutrals

My friend: You've been mixing patterns a lot lately
Me: Actually you're right, I have been. I'm surprised I'm not mixing patterns today.

*awkward silence until I realize what I'm wearing*

Me: Oh.

Well it's official... Patterns are now neutrals to me. I blame this on my old age. I plan on blaming everything on my old age from now on. My lack of accountability is a result of my old age (yes, this thought process is actually happening).
