I promise I did not forget about you all this past Sunday, but it was Mother’s Day as you all know and I ended up spending the entire day with my mum and family. I personally love spending time with my family as it is super comforting and we always end up laughing all day 🙂
I was thinking that a short post would be great, but once I get started I just can’t not continue. For this post in my How To series I am going to explain (as best as I can) how to mix prints. I do this a lot with my wardrobe since I tend to focus on colors and prints, rather than basic pieces. But enough of my rambling. When mixing prints it is best to look at the colors of each individual piece and the busyness of the print. For example, in this outfit, I chose a striped top with my paisley print culottes from Forever 21. When I paired them together my focal point was the red and blue tones within the pants. Of course, it is best not to go too busy with the adjoining piece, but sometimes it can pass, therefore I wore this striped top from Urban Outfitters that displayed a similar blue tone and red. When mixing prints it is best not to accessorize to heavily, but the occasional statement necklace doesn’t hurt, so I added my simple drop necklace from Forever 21 to tie it all together and my black belt to solidify or break up the contrast. For shoes I settled for my birks as they were super easy to pair and insanely comforting. So this is my super extensive How To on mixing prints, I hope this helps 🙂
Anyways, I would wear this outfit to a casual breakfast/lunch with my family or friends as it is super comfortable and relaxed. I plan on putting together more laid back outfits like this one for Spring/Summer as it tends to get amazingly hot down here. Oh how I love warm weather and light clothing… Or all clothing really (I can’t disclaim the winter months too much). ha!
Anyways, I hope you all are having a great week!
ps. I really do need to post wayyyyy more, but I swear I’m working on it! Ta-taa
