Mixing it up


Skirt: F21 similar here, Top: H&M similar here, Necklace: Ann Taylor 

Let's be honest...some pattern mixing is down right scary.  But I do enjoy spicing things up a bit every now and then, and stuck with my go-to, classic, black and white.  Some people feel totally ok with pairing some pattern mixing with bold accessories, but I like to keep things simple and neutral.  (And no, I'm not barefoot as it may appear...I'm wearing my flesh colored flats). 

What about you?  Do you like mixing patterns? (And if so, what are your favorites to mix?)

Linking up here.

I'm scared of mixing patterns too. This, however, is adorable and doesn't feel forced at all! :)

Samantha said...

I don't really mix patterns...I'm a simple kinda girl. Love it on others though!

This is my favorite way to mix patterns (stripes/polka dots). You kept it clean and simple without going crazy.

I also like stripes and leopard or stripes and floral. I am kind of a boring pattern mixer :) Heather

Brielle said...

I love this look!! I always feel like I can't pull it off but maybe I will try! You look so cute :)

RoselyC said...

Polka dots and stripes are my kind of pattern mixing. I'm not really a risk taker so it would take a lot for me to try mixing especially considering most of my clothes are neutral and have no pattern at all.

jess.walker said...

I like striped shirts or dresses with floral scarves!

Emi said...

Theresa said...

I am one who can NOT pull off pattern mixing. I think you have to have a certain look to be able to do that. You, my friend, certainly pull it off well!

Shaylynn... I blahwg It's True. said...

NO i don't mix patterns. it freaks me right out. patterns kinda freak me out in general.

Ashley. I watched SYTYCD last night for like 5 seconds. Some dance about letting someone go. I BAWLED. I can't watch this crap.
