monday mix.

There are two things that I’m a complete sucker for: bright colors and prints. Sometimes, I wish I had more basic items in my wardrobe, because it would be so much easier getting dressed.  Then again, where’s the fun in that?

Recently, I’ve decided to embrace the prints and patterns in my closet.  After playing around with different combinations, I discovered that mixing prints without looking ridiculous is not as difficult as it seems.  Here, I picked the color black to link the two pieces, made sure neither pattern looked overly obnoxious against one another, and chose simple accessories to compliment the entire look.

I don’t like Mondays very much, but mixing prints makes it slightly more tolerable.

P.S. After I published this post, I discovered that my first stab at mixing prints (seen here) was featured on FabSugar’s Look of the Day.  This definitely just transformed my Monday from barely tolerable to absolutely amazing!
