mix it up

my wardrobe consists of lots of neutral solids, splashed with very few bright colors and even less patterns or prints. one thing I always say I’m going to do is mix in a few prints into my closet, then I always revert back to a solid color. this outfit is fantastic and so inspiring. such a subtle yet a wonderful mix of patterns and colors and something I aspire to put together. plus, I really want her shoes.

    I also usually wear mostly neutral solid colors. But I do love this mix. And the touch of red. Lovely!

    eep! I have shoes that are very similar to that!. those are a bit nicer of course.
    I hear ya on the mixing in. I think I need to edit my wardrobe as I am so fed up with it.. being between sizes I think i am in need of a remix!
