Color-matching, e.g. all whites, blacks, grays etc., have been fairly prevalent color schemes for quite a while now. While I love an all-white, black, neutral, or pastel outfit as much as the next girl, I also love prints; so I thought it might be fun to wear this trend with an animalistic twist. I went with an all leopard print from head to toe –this included my dress, shoes, watch, and even my sunglasses. The trick with doing this with prints is to make sure the pattern on each item of clothing is the same (e.g. stripes, animal print etc.) but the proportions (or some other detail) of the print are slightly different on each article of clothing. For example if it’s stripes, the stripes from your shirt or shoes may be wider than those from your shirt. So what do you all think about the all leopard get-up? Like it or not, I hope you have a great Wednesday!
By now, I hope it’s obvious that I’m a prints kind of gal. One of my favorite prints is houndstooth, because I find that it’s super versatile. There is a classic quality about it that can be lacking in other print patterns. And depending on the size of the houndstooth, the item of clothing can be muted, or stand out a little more –which brings me to this outfit. I bought this skirt for all of $10 at the Buffalo Exchange in Georgetown. As soon as I saw it, I wanted it. It’s feminine, classy, and fun. I decided to pair it with a simple, flirty top; to complete the look, I added these flats with bows, threw on a thick belt, and off to work I sauntered!

As much as I love this patterned skirt, for some reason it’s always really difficult for me to find a shirt to complement it. And usually when I do find one, I’m never completely satisfied. Enter this shift dress. I’m all about remixing dresses into shirts by tucking them into pants or skirts, and dresses into skirts -with sweaters or shirts layered over them. I love the neon stripe detail on this dress, and think the asymmetrical stripes are a great touch. Not one to shy away from pattern mixing, and/or bright colors, I’m a little surprised it took me this long to pair these items together but I couldn’t be happier with the results. What do you all think, thumbs up or down?
