Seersucker Safari

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!


My OOTD:
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!)

Shop my favorite seersucker safari styles:



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!

  9. You are so adorable! I love the mix of all of these different prints, patterns and textures. Not only is it interesting and unique, but it also has the same bubbly approachability as your personality -- it just jumps off of the page. Bravo!
