The Creative Closet | Pattern Mixing

7.22.2014

This has been the scariest prompt for me thus far. Silly right? I'm a straight forward person so pattern mixing is not my thing. Although, I did enjoy being pushed out of my comfort zone! I am vowing to attempt pattern mixing a bit more and not play it so safe all the time.

Also, how cute are those two up top? Check out both Jana and Laura's looks below in the link-up.

 Top: Banana Republic (similar) | Skirt: Maurices (similar) | Bag: Charming Charlie (similar) | Sunnies: Coach | Heels: White House, Black Market (old) | Polish: Sinful Colors, Dream On

So how did I do? I played it pretty safe, but I really do love this outfit. I think next time I'll add a big pop of color with a statement necklace to jazz it up a bit. That's what I love about this link-up! I'm trying new things and creating new outfits from clothes I have seen as "blagh" for years. Win, win!

I'm so ready to see how you've mixed your patterns and get some ideas to store up and try! If you would like to co-host a week of The Creative Closet with Jana and I, click here. If you have prompt ideas to share, click here. Join us next week for "My Go-To Piece"!

  11. I love this mix! It's subtle but still definitely interesting. Adding in the red lip was a nice touch :) I didn't manage to get my act together for this week, but next week I'll be linking up for sure!

  12. Three words: Classy, classy, classy. Of course, I would expect nothing less of you. :)

    Also, one of the girls I used to nanny (she's 10) is staying with us for a few days and when she saw me putting the collage together she pointed at your photo and said, "Is that your friend? She's really pretty." Just thought I'd let you know so I could give your ego a little fluffing today. ;)
