Top: Joe Fresh. Skirt: Necessary Objects. Handbag: J.Crew EdieΒ (on sale now!). Shoes: Boutique 9. Necklace: Forever 21.Β Bracelet: Henri Bendel. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

More print mixing today. Β I think I’m starting to get the hang of it, although my Man did rhetorically ask “Dots and stripes. . . does that match?” when he saw me.

    Oooh I love these prints together! They’re both so bold, yet they don’t overpower each other. Plus I’m a sucker for polka dots.

      Thanks Brenna! I loved this combo at first, but started to doubt the bold prints and mis-matched colours each time I walked by a mirror at work. By the end of the day, and after seeing these photos, I’m definitely happy with the look.
