When I found my skort at Designer Resale, the salesperson thought it was a top. I thought it was a skirt. I was won over by the print, so I bought it without trying it on. It turns out we were both wrong, though I was closer..it is a skort, and I love that!
I was planning on wearing this with a simple tee, in cotton or maybe lace. But while I perused my closet, my embroidered Prada tee winked at me. Ok, not literally! The red embroidery of the tee, matches the fringe of the skort perfectly! I tried it on and realized that something was missing. I added the floral scarf to my waist and bingo! I love the way the tonal floral separates the two dominant prints!
Mixed prints add so much liveliness to an outfit. It also makes your outfit more "one of a kind". I like both of those attributes in an outfit, and so appreciate when other bloggers wear mixed prints well!
The color block envelope bag pulled out the purple tones from the skort, and matched the tomato red of the skort's fringe. I wanted a clutch with no straps, fringes, or charms. I had enough detail going on here. The clutch came from Italy a few years ago and is made by Paola del Lungo. Alternatives to this clutch can be found here and here. The skort is still available, but not in this pattern. A cute black and white pattern can be found here, and it is 55% off!
A block away from me, we found this cool back drop. I like the way this shot came out, but it is colorful. Maybe I still had fireworks on my mind! (this were taken July fifth) You may notice that not only am I wearing heels, but I am sort of standing on tip toes... My wedges have cut out straps and are old, but I love these by Michael Kors from Macys.
I am so glad skinny scarves are back in action. My teal floral number is old, from somewhere in Greenwich, Connecticut - now that is helpful- not- :) - but I love this one from Ted Baker via Asos.com.
Closing with 2 shots that I like most for their aesthetic value. How are you styling mixed prints? I hope you have a great week to come! XX, Elle
