Stripes & Florals - Part ?








Florals | Everybody, Everywear


A little over a year ago, I started to really play around with my style and branch out, taking pictures and posting them on this medium called a blog.  After a few months of trying this blogging thing out, I started to really explore with different patterns, textures, and layers, drawing inspiration from this great wide world of style-blogging on the interwebs.  I remember feeling so bold and daring - I was mixing a stripe with a floral print! Oh My Gosh!  Who WAS I?  Well, it turns out that once you start down the path of mixing prints, you rarely go back.  My first forays down the path (seen here, here, and here) led to this (here), which still continues to be one of my fav outfits that I've put together.

And this is why when I was putting together my outfit for incorporating florals for today's EBEW, I decided to scrap the original plain white tee (and now "Hey Delilah" just popped into my head) I was going to wear and mix it up with the candy-colored stripes.  The thought that literally ran through my head was "Why Not?" :).  And I'm glad I did, because even though J.Lo might not approve, I love it.  And that's all that matters :).

Eep! I love this! Such a great stripes + florals combo. And I am LOVING those Target shoes. I may just have to invest in a pair for myself...

Thanks Kerrie! I always feel like I'm channeling your bold color spirit when
I pair bright fun colors together :) And that skirt is soooo old! I can't
believe that it has lasted so long, but I love it so much - it's the perfect
summer skirt!

This is an awesome outfit! I totally agree that once you start mixing prints, its hard to stop! It's like going back to being a kid and coming up with "outfits that match" just because they have one colour in common. But as grown ups, we know more about shape and just HOW to mix patterns! LOVE it!!!

Lots of choices, wonderful values and plenty [URL=http://www.northfacetriclimate.org/#608]north face outlet store[/URL] excellent brands to choose from... Mom could pick the ideal backpack for each kid within a heartbeat, but then again, I'm not 'cool' any more and the backpack would probably sit down inside the closet.
