Florals, Stripes, and No Smiles

I love mixing patterns. Love it. Before doing this little thing called blogging I probably never really mixed patterns that much. I don’t know what the change has been, but now I love it. I look at patterns differently and see a match where before I most likely didn’t! Sometimes, even a little mismatch is a match? Make sense?

A few months ago, I saw this Lauren Conrad blazer at Kohl’s and just never got around to purchasing it. I am totally glad I waited (which is rare for me…I am an instant gratification kind of girl!) because it is on sale for super cheap!! Score!!


Blazer: LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s

Shirt: Apt 9, Kohl’s

Jeans: Gap

Shoes: BCBG (old)

Shades: Target

Bracelets: Charlotte Russe (gifted), Stella and Dot

Necklace: Stella and Dot

What about you? Are you more bold now than you used to be with mixing and matching patterns?

Side note: This was my first attempt at using my tri-pod instead of my husband, hence the no smiling for most of the pictures…it takes a lot of concentration to get everything set up, does it not?!?! Plus, when there is a cop car parked not far away it adds a little bit of weirdness to the picture taking! Doesn’t the police officer know I am trying to take pictures for my blog? Can’t he park and patrol elsewhere?!?! Either that of get out of your car and help a girl out by taking my pictures for me ๐Ÿ™‚

Linking up today with The Pleated Poppy and Lauren for Style Sessions! Happy Wednesday!

    I never thought about even mixing any kind of pattern a year ago but now I kind of love it. I don't know if we'll look back at it in like 20 years and wonder what we were thinking but for now? love.
