I wore this for a quick Fox 9 Morning Show segment to demonstrate that separating two related prints with a solid can make print and pattern mixing feel less daunting. You hardly even notice there are two prints in this outfit, but they both add a bit of interest and energy to the look.

Anyone else like to put some nice, soothing solids between prints to make a more subtle mix?

    Noticed and love it. Ah, and I really like commenting from my deskstop and not my Kindle. Can’t get used to communicating via a portable device. 🙂

    You just asked about our colors, yes? And then put together an outfit that is the epitome of mine, right now. Love it. =)

    It’s true that I didn’t even notice the pattern mixing at first glance — could be partly because of the nice solids, but I think it’s also because polka dots are basically a solid (from a bit of a distance, you can’t see the pattern) and your shoes have so much of that peachy tone on the front that they seem like extensions of your legs.

    Having a similar pair of shoes, I really love how simple this outfit is, but how tied together it seems. Definitely gives me a few ideas of how to wear mine!
