Today I'm linking up with the always stylish Marion over at Marionberry Style for her Trend of the Month Challenge. Which is...dum dum dum...pattern mixing.
An honest confession: mixing prints terrifies me. I think it's an adorable trend, and there are loads of bloggers that are print mixing artists, but I'm just not one of them.
Today I spent about 20-30 minutes staring at my closet before I pulled out a few patterned things. About eight outfits later, I settled on a striped shirt with a floral skirt. Then I didn't have any shoes that worked, so I just grabbed some neutral wedges.
So this is the result of my first real attempt at mixing patterns. I've had a few previous attempts, but none were very well documented. Or not documented at all.
I think this all stems from being really good at pattern mixing (ha) when I was a kid, then having kids point out it wasn't cool (yet).
Anyway, this was a good exercise for me. Although a little frustrating, I like taking on more difficult challenges. Plus I actually got a wearable outfit out of it! I think we can call it a win win.
Are there any trends you struggle with?
