Print mixing–I’ve seen many of my blogger friends do it before, and I tried it out in this previous post. While I’m not anti-matching, I feel having the option to mix it up can give you more versatility if you have a limited, or even not-so-limited, wardrobe. It’s long been my home decorating philosophy if nothing matches then it all goes together. Remember the chairs around Monica’s dinner table on Friends? If a “friend” went all WWF and smashed one of them, she may have lost a cute chair, but she didn’t have to worry that it broke up the set. Monica could just go to a thrift store and pick up a new one in whichever style she wanted. It’s so much fun to bring this idea to fashion. I really like how the polka dots on the chambray skirt are structured and traditional, but the spots on my blouse are just not having any of that. Speaking of the skirt, I feel it will become like a favorite pair of jeans, and I’ll wear it often. The shoes and purse don’t match either; in fact, the only things that match are my necklace and earrings.

    I love stripes and polka dots together. But I would wear anything that is fun and I like together, sometimes I will wear 2 novelty prints together even. Fashion is all about having fun and loving what you are wearing. I’m loving your skirt, I think I need it in my closet 🙂

    I think the fun thing about mixing prints is as long as you like it and you are having fun, that’s all that matters. I’m relatively new to mixing prints too, and have had a few instances where I thought things went together okay, but my mom would see me, or I would get out in the natural light and see that they clashed pretty bad. I think you did a fantastic job though. I swear you can pull off any look, you look fab!

    Hope you don’t mind me saying but I’m not sure they mismatch enough, maybe a different tonal range or different size spots would mix it up a bit more?
    I really like the shape of the skirt though, I can see why you’d want it as a staple.
