What I wore

Easy going Print Mixing

Print mixing is all the rage and even though it seems like a complicated premise I find the easiest mixing is pairing a nautical stripe with floral.

In fact I am actually mixing three prints here with the floral, stripes and snake-skin gladiators. And yet somehow I think it works. Probably because the third print is in such a small dose and fairly neutral.

I got this top recently at Joe Fresh. I know like I need more stripes. But I liked the drop shoulders and the batwing sleeve. I think it makes the over all look very easy, casual and weekend appropriate.

You might recognize the pleated skirt. It’s actually a dress that I have styled a number of different ways here and here. And it’s the second time I have layered it to look like two pieces. Is that something you do to breathe new life into your dresses?
