Everybody, Everywear: Mixed Prints

Everybody, Everywear | Pattern Mixing

I have been SO excited for the Everybody, Everywear post. When I heard that 'mixing prints' was the winner I started jumping up and down. This was a HUGE Spring trend and I have been so inspired by the mixing of florals/leopards and polka dots/leopards done by Dolce and Gabanna. I have been wanting to mix prints since I posted my Spring Wish List. I finally bought a leopard print pencil skirt (although I am still on the look out for the perfect one. I also still need to find a flouncy leopard skirt.). I have to admit that I was slightly discouraged when I looked in my closet and saw how little prints I actually had. I went to a few stores to find a top then realized I needed to make my closet work. I went through a few options, even posting my top three on Twitter. And this was the best choice. I LOVE how it turned out. I even busted out the red lipstick, which I am hoping will grow on me. This challenge definitely stretched me and got me out of my comfort zone. THAT is the reason why I do them :)
