Hello, hello everyone!
So, while attempting to put an outfit together last night I can honestly say that I was completely stumped! It makes no sense to me how sometimes I can't seem to put an outfit on that I like even though I have a closet bursting with clothes. In my frustration, I randomly decided to try something that I never have before: print mixing! My personal style is not the least bit eccentric, so I've always been somewhat weary about print mixing. I'm such a matchy matchy girl at heart! But when all else fails, it's time to try something new and it was time to try a little print mixing.
Now, have mercy on me: I'm just a beginner! I thought back to tips on how to do print mixing to avoid looking like I just threw on random pieces. 1. Have a common color scheme. 2. Make sure there is a significant size difference in the prints. I used black as the common color, and had a dainty polka dot print with a more bold floral print!
Tomorrow I'm doing another bit of pattern mixing,but floral on floral! Should be interesting...
Hope you all are doing truly lovely.
With much love, Lauren.
