Trend Challenge: Pattern Mixing

{ What I Wore: StyleMint tee // J.Crew shorts & necklace // Steve Madden sandals  // Guise "Molly" sunnies, won in giveaway from Honey&Silk }
Pattern Mixing... we have been talking about this exciting trend for ages (ok like less than a year, but forever in the fashion blogging world)... but it is looking to continue with even more gusto for Fall. So let's get to mixing. 
I saw Cupcakes and Cashmere wearing stripes and geometric prints, so I wore stripes and geometric prints (Mean Girls reference, anyone??)... and turns out, I think it rocks! 
New combo to add to my love of stripes + floral & stripes + dots
Today I am linking up with MarionBerry Style's Trend of the month challenge

What are your favorite patterns to mix?
Any that are off limits?

Oh, and how sweet are these sunnies?! The most expensive pair I have ever owned... and I didn't even have to pay for them.... I WON them in a giveaway from Honey & Silk, and I cannot wait to wear these sophisticated sunglasses with Every.Thing! Thanks Stephanie!

  22. Thanks Shanna! I got these bad boys from J.Crew around 2009... and am so happy that they have maintained their "trendiness"! I actually purchased them as an outfit that I ordered straight from the pages of their catalogue (see the post here: http://www.myhereandnowlife.com/2012/05/verbatim.html). If I see any similar I will let you know, as I am definitely holding on to these ;)

  27. I love your pattern mixing and I really love those shorts (as I've said before:)! I'm so into mixing up patterns  and it  really has become such a mainstay in my dressing that I just assume stripes go with everything!  Aren't I right?

    ReplyDelete
  28. haha so true - stripes have officially become a neutral in my closet!
