Florals & Stripes
Striped shirt / Floral skirt / Cap-toe heels / Revlon lipstick in “Love That Pink”
When it comes to mixing patterns, I like to keep it simple. I personally don’t think wearing a crazy printed top and then pants with another crazy print makes you look “fashionable”, I just think it makes you look like you’re trying too hard. One thing I can appreciate is subtle print mixing, like mixing a combination of stripes, florals, or polka dots. The key is to just keep it simple and keep the pieces in the same color scheme. When the outfit itself should be the focal point, I keep the shoes and jewelry simple. What are your tips for mixing prints?
ah stripes and florals are one of my favorite mixes, you seriously look drop dead in these pics! Love that you kept everything simple and that skirt was from Tarjay? NO WAY! Too cute!
Aw that you SO much Heather! It’s from Target 2 years ago!
Love the print mixing, that skirt is so pretty. You look gorgeous.
Thank you so much Rachelle!
Love the floral and stripes together. Such a cute skirt on you!
I can’t do the heavy print mixing either. Stripes and florals always look so clean, though. Love this outfit!
Thanks! Keeping it simple is the best way, right?
Rachel I LOVE this! Your pattern mixing is perfect and you look so pretty 🙂
Thanks SO much Annie!
Perfect mix! I’m always unsure about pattern mixing, so I never do anything too bold.
Cute! Love these patterns together 🙂
Love stripes with florals! You look so pretty.

That’s an excellent combo…..so fresh uncluttered pattern mix!
Love stripes and florals together, so pretty!
Love the print mixing! Totally agree – a crazy top with a crazy bottom usually comes off as trying to hard. Stripes and florals are my favorite way to mix prints!
I love this color combination and how springy this outfit is – pretty!
I’ve been waiting to see how you would rock this, loving your floral skirt!

Thank you Maria 🙂 I could hear it every day haha!
Such a cute mix! Loving that blouse girl!
I couldn’t agree more about too many prints looking nothing short of terrible. I. Just. Can’t.
The stripes and floral, however, is a look I can get behind. Makes a statement in a nice, subtle way.
I am loving this combo! I think I might have to steal your look soon….it’s so perfect for a spring weekend day!
Go right ahead!
Uhm I am pretty obsessed with this look – you are gorgeous!

I agree- you have to walk the print-mix line carefully to keep from venturing into Try Hard Territory. You’ve mastered it! 🙂

Thank you Jen!
Florals and stripes is one of my favorite combinations!!! So cute 🙂 And your hair is seriously soooo beautiful. What’s your secret?
Aw thanks SO much Sarah! Honestly, good genetics and taking care of my hair are my secrets. I’m going to do some more hair posts in the future 🙂
I am a big fan of florals and stripes together. It’s so interesting and looks great on you.
I am a new follower. Love your blog
thank you so much Jennifer!
This is beautiful!!! You are so photogenic and I want your hair! I want that skirt too!
Thank you! I’m not sure how photogenic you would think I am if you saw the ones I didn’t choose to put up :p
LOVE LOVE your stripes and floral combo! That skirt makes your legs look SUPER long and your shirt isn’t a super bold stripe. You did a fab job with your pattern mixing! I agree with you, if you have 2 patterns, you should have something neutral too. I wore a polka dot sweater with a gingham shirt underneath, but with a tan skirt and nude shoes today.
thank you so much! You always mix patterns and it looks great!
I really, really love your combo here! So great. And I have total hair envy.
I hope my Pattern mixing series didnt make you think i was crazy because some of mine were pretty cra! I think the key is to stick with a color pallet. then go nuts with the patterns but one should def be the solid anchor piece like the striped top you have on or a polkadot top.
haha no not at all!
I love the pattern mixing!!! Your skirt is so cute! Beautiful pics!
love this outfit!! & that lipstick on you
