Mix It Up: Patterns

One of my favorite fashion trends is mixing patterns. I love how much texture and interest they bring to any outfit. One of my most coveted items is my H&M scarf (around 2006). My friends and mother often steal it out of my closet! It has amazing rich tones of burgundy and purple. You can reverse the sides for different colors. I wanted to find a dress that had similar colors and patterns. The closest one I had was this Juicy Couture dress from earlier this year. 

Here is a  link to a blogger who is an expert at pattern mixing:

 The Glamourai  My ultimate favorite. She is amazing! I have a ways to go.

That is such a cute scarf. I love the colour and pattern on it.

Only a few people can pull off mixing patterns and may I say, you are one of them. You have the eye and you've got style.

nicole said...

I think you did a great job with the pattern mixing! I'm always wary of trying that so thanks for the glamourai blog recommendation!

your outfit is very effortless chic. and I like how you grounded the patterns with basic black tights/shoes and a black blazer. love!

I really like this whole ensemble. I am getting into mixing patterns lately. It's so fun. I think throwing on a classic blazer pulls the look together everytime!

I have a fave scarf from H&M too, and I can't find it! ugggh!
