Casual Chic Outfit of the Day - Mixing Patterns


Total Cost: $105

About the Casual Chic Outfit


Mixing patterns is a fine skill that even casual chic style incorporates. I'm no good at it, but I try. Today's somewhat successful mixing of leopard and Aztec gave me a dose of confidence. I stuck with the same color theme -- in today's case, gray -- and it worked.

Perhaps a more difficult combo next time?

Eventually I'll become a pro at mixing prints and patterns, but I'll settle for good enough for today.

About the Day


Sun was out. In Seattle, in January, that means go outside. My family and I spent the day at the park. It was a good day to be outside.

Thanks for reading.

 

If you have advice about mixing patterns, please share them in a comment below.

 

Have a nice day!

  2. I think this pattern mixing is perfect...sometimes people do too much their first few tries and it looks kinda wacky:) Sounds like a nice day. I'd love to visit Seattle when its sunny!

  6. You don't need advice mixing patterns, you're doing it beautiful! But something I want to try this summer are flowers and stripes (but maybe that will look hideous together haha) Your jeans are beautiful! xx
