Happy Wednesday!
Today's look is definetely mixing prints. When my husband saw me in this outfit, his first comment was, you are not matching. Of course my reply was, I know. I'm not supposed to. I think one of the first elements in mixing prints is to stay in the same family of colors. I added the red shirt to add some color to my outfit.
How are you mixing prints in your work attire?
Thanks for reading!

  2. Love that skirt, so pretty! It looks feminine here with the cardigan and top, but if you paired it with a leather jacket it would give it an edgy look also. Love the skirts versatility.

  5. Men don't like print mixing, what's up with that? My husband would've asked me the same. I absolutely love this look, especially the pops of color and that necklace!
