Prints Mix

front-row-shop-full-midi-skirt-in-brocade

Perhaps one of the greatest imprints blogging will leave on my persona is the ability courage gall to mix prints in a single look……something my mom wouldn’t ever understand. :-)   I’d say print mixing is not a walk in the park and I’m so amazed at how a lot of bloggers out there make it all look so effortless.  In my book, however, I’d rather start with neutral colors like my favorite B&W combo.  But my life lately is all about getting out of my comfort zones…..so who knows what’s next? ;-)

So it’s another eureka moment at my annual closet Spring cleaning when I found this seemingly unlikely pair….stripes, florals (that skirt is brocade), then pushing the envelope a little farther with a leopard print belt to keep it all together. ♥

    Stripes and florals are the absolute perfect combination of prints. Loving this look Rebecca, especially that gorgeous skirt!

    It’s so funny, but in the “old” days (aka – before blogging), I wouldn’t EVER think stripes and florals would look good together. Now, I put so-called crazy combinations together like that all the time.

    This outfit is pretty, and fun!

    And you have done well. I also find it extremely difficult to mix patterns. Often it is too much to my taste when I see it on other bloggers too. But it can lift an outfit to a higher level, so I try too. But not much (chicken is my middle name). Like in your outfit, I love the top, skirt and belt, but I would have tried to find another bag and shoes. Or I would have worn a red belt, which would have made it too matchy/matchy. So don’t listen to this, I don’t know anything about mixing patterns. As I said chicken. And conservative. That’s me.

      Thanks Katy for stopping by! I was just at your blog & I love all the spaces there and I tried to put in my thoughts but I couldn’t find the comments section. Is it just me?

    Your brocade skirt is just gorgeous! It looks wonderful paired with your striped top and leopard belt. I love how your shoes tie back into the stripes, as well. Great job on pushing yourself!

    Blogging will do that to a person, take you “out of the box”. This combo looks very good on you and you are rockin’ it. I have not been able to mix yet it is a work in progress for me.

    The only thing better than a little bit of print mixing is a lot of print mixing! I must say I’m impressed with the way you mixed so many prints in this outfit and you look so chic! tee with stripes, animal print belt and a gorgeous flower skirt…and multi-coloured heels ! this is a work of a genious:)

    and you look as stunning as usual!

    Wow Rebecca breathtaking outfit. I love the beautiful floral skirt and the way you styled it. Fabulous mix of prints! Can’t wait to see what’s next. I’m sure you’ll rock a colorful mix of prints too. Wish you a happy Monday. We have 40 degrees and my plans to move to a warmer country are cancelled haha. I have totally forgotten that I don’t like the heat at all :D

    Pattern mixing is not one of my skills and I love to see bloggers who inspire me. So, well done, Rebecca! I find pattern mixing best in monochrome colours as you show it today. I just love the rose prints, dear!
