Mixing prints is really in right now, so I thought I would give it a go. I don't think I've ever tried it before, so this should be fun! I decided to go with mixing two different stripe patterns. Definitely easier to pull off than any other prints. I have read that when you are mixing stripes, use items with the same color pallette and mix smaller stripes with bigger. The rest of the outfit, keep pretty simple.
This was a really fun look to wear! Looking at the photos I am actually liking it better than when I was wearing it. Don't be afraid to try new things. You just might be pleasantly surprised!
Some of you may not like the mixing of patterns, it is really a matter of preference. So...here is another option, just for YOU! (See below picture, I am pointing at you! haha)
If you like my double stripe look, I encourage you to try it and make it your own! In fact, I DARE YOU! :)

I feel like these two pieces don't really go together, but somehow it works! I was insistent on wearing this shirt today and the skirt was kind of an afterthought. If you have trouble choosing your daily ensemble, pick one piece to base the rest of your outfit around. When I have a hard time finding something to wear, the aftermath is brutal. My bed and floor will be covered with mountains of clothing, shoes, jewelry, and other random things. It is horrendous and NOT fun to clean up.
This outfit is easy breezy, and gives off the impression that you're not trying too hard ("I try really hard, actually" hee hee! ). There are so many different things going on in it, and they all seem to contradict one another. The frilly skirt, old man hat, preppy sweater, statement necklace, tough girl boots...that's what I love about fashion, the possibilities are endless!
