Minimal Mix + Exciting News

Hello there! How is your week going thus far? Mine is going pretty well, I’m quite happy that we are already at the mid-way point :) Wednesdays mean that FRI-YAY (b.k.a. Friday) is just 48 hours away; YES, the weekend is almost here! Doesn’t awareness that the weekend is closer instantly put you in a good mood?!
Today’s post is the latest installment with the Blogger Babes of Unitedly PLUS (previous posts here, here, and here)! Our theme this month is ‘Mixed Prints’. Mixed prints have become a rotating staple in my wardrobe style preferences; Examples of such have been blogged here a number of times (see instances here, here, here, and here).
Oftentimes the biggest apprehension in reference to pulling off a mixed prints combo is “Where do I begin?”
One of the simplest ways to mix up prints is to work with a classic color duo, i.e. black + white (see another example here). For today’s look I selected a stripe crop top and a vintage high waist houndstooth maxi skirt. Since both are black & white, although different patterns and variations, notice how well they ‘match’ up.
I added a colorful tote & fringed booties to complete the experience. I can totally picture this look modified in several ways, dependent on individual preferences and needs. It feels like a precursor to fall fashion, which is just around the corner…
Don’t forget to check out Sahily of Pretty in Pigment (Instagram) and Sheena of I am She Global (Instagram) today and how they do mixed prints! Use the #UnitedlyPlus hashtag and learn more about each of us and the idea behind our collaboration!
