No use dwelling on what might have been

Today I decided to branch out the slightest bit and try mixing patterns, I did it in the most subtle way possible, but I think I like it! I felt very summery today, I sat outside for hours helping out with my fashion club's yard sale which was a lot of fun! All my clothes sold fast, of course hehe! Tomorrow I'm stuck in class and studying for most the of day which should be hard with this beautiful weather.

socks; Target

Your mixing of prints is very skillfully put together here. That shirt is such a great piece you could wear it an infinite amount of different ways.

LOVELOVE!

By the way, if you want to fix your background so it doesn't moving when scrolling, put this under the background section:

background-attachment: fixed;

Yay for mixed prints! I was just talking about how much I want to try this on my Friday blog. I even invested in a print top (striped if you are interested) today in order to mix. Turns out I only the majority of my personal wardrobe is made up of solids... who knew? This is fantastic though. Gives me inspiration.

This outfit is so wonderful - you do such a great job mixing prints! And I can't believe you got everything from Goodwill - that skirt is amazing!
