Today we're going on a little style safari by pairing two different prints together, with a twist! I'm wearing Safari prints & seersucker - two contrasting patterns, but keeping it monochromatic in summer blues!
Pants: Rachel Roy Seersucker Boyfriend Jeans (old) shop these darling pants
Shoes: Zara Court Heel Pump Bow Tie Heel in powder Blue
Hat: Vintage Straw Summer Bowler (try it with the panama hat!)
Bracelet: Taylor Morgan Gold Link Bracelet

If you haven't tried pattern mixing yet, shame on you! This fun trend came no the scene maybe five years ago, but has hung around becoming almost a basic! It's especially fun for spring & summer where you can give a striped skirt a flirty twist by wearing it with a floral blouse! If you're scared to try pattern mixing, ease yourself in with something simple - like I did in today's look! Keep in monochromatic by sticking to a color pallet (try black and white) and use small, simple patterns (like seersucker) ... after you dabble in this toned-down version of the trend I know you will want to give the more advanced versions a try!
What do you think about pattern mixing? Are you already a printed pro or is it something you are dying to try?!

She's off in Parie for the summer, photographing weddings and being fancy- I miss you, come back to the USA - Until she decides to grace our great nation with her presence, follow her instagram to find yourself in a constant state of jealousy! I think my summer Parisian vacay is vastly over due ... Claire, next time you're packing me with you, I promise I will fit in your carry-on!
