Pattern Play

I enjoy mixing prints (previously seen here and here), but if you're at all wary about pattern mixing, the easiest way to wear the trend is to get a piece of clothing that's already paired two prints together for you! This tank mixes florals and stripes in a foolproof way that's incredibly easy to wear. And who doesn't like effortless dressing, especially during the hot summer months? For more inspiration on playing with patterns, check out Marionberry Style's Trend of the Month post, which I'm linking up with today. Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend!

  5. Print mixing is definitely one of those things that I have yet to master. I've just kind of shied away from it. I absolutely adore your look here. It's comfy yet chic, and I love looks like that. :)
