Pattern Mixing: Florals and Stripes (and something awesome!)

If anything about my fashion has evolved over the last year and a half of blogging, its the fact that I am not afraid to be bold with patterns. Several years ago, I would have rolled my eyes at someone mixing plaid and leopard, or polka dots and flowers. But now, I find myself drawn to it!

When I purchased these pants I knew exactly how I wanted to wear them! I’ve had this shirt for months and have gotten so much wear out of it! I knew topping it with a blazer would be perfect! I actually wore this to my daughter’s Meet the Teacher Night, but I swapped the heels for some flats. It made it much more casual! To make it even more casual you could always wear a denim jacket instead of a blazer!

Lastly, I was nominated as a Top 50 Moms Who Blog About Fashion and Beauty by VoiceBoks!! How freakin awesome is that?!?!?! 

Here is where you come in! You can vote for me HERE to help me get to the top 10, and maybe (probs not) number one! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
