Mixing Patterns

I know other bloggers can relate to this situation. You've found the spot and you're ready to take your outfit pictures when suddenly your wandering eye happens to catch random people staring at you while you pose for the shot. What a buzz kill! I don't know about you, but I get shy and nervous when they look. I can't concentrate people! lol Okay, enough about my awkwardness on to the outfit. 

When mixing patterns, try using hues from the same color to create a delicate look. I am a stripes fan so I decided to go with a blouse with small patterns. This gives the illusion that it's a solid color. Both of these patterns compliment each other very well and can take a look from simple to daring. 

blouse: Forever 21, top: Forever21, Pants: H&M, wedges: Target, clutch: Target, necklace: Old Navy, stretchy bracelet: Forever21, bracelet: ModCloth

    1. Thanks hun! I try not to pay attention to it, but it can be quite annoying at times. You know what I mean ;)

  3. Isn't that the worst when people are all up in your business?! I've semi gotten over it because, well there are always people everywhere here, but sometimes I get really frustrated and I say stuff like "excuse me, can I help you?" or "Is there a reason you're staring?" Haha I probably shouldn't but oh well....

    1. Omg yes! lol sometimes I feel like telling them something, but hey, we gotta do what we gotta do. ;) I am glad I'm not alone.

  4. Love your striped top girl! Your hair looks gorgeous!!
