STYLE / 52


mixing patterns is all about scale. i challenge you to look at different patterns together and see what you like. for example, in these photos the three patterns on the bottom half of the photo all work together, but adding a similarly scaled 4th floral might have been overkill. HOWEVER, add an oversized print and now we’re talkin…


we also put some colored chalk in my braid that was pretty fun for a change. i look like i should be prancin around coachella or something, huh?


here we have a little floral on floral on floral on tambourine…


isn’t this quote so true? it really believe in the emotions colors can bring us. and when you mix them all together…it can be pretty powerful. look at me gettin’ all emo on you guys now.

here’s the little collection that i put together in case you want to recreate this look! (loving the peplum trend, aren’t you?)

    I like to play with colors too! My skin is so fair though that bright and pastel colors really wash me out. So I tend to stick with mostly dark colors, but work in some lighter ones when I can. Dark green goes fantastically with my red hair. :)

    Leigh says:

    I am a little less bold with my pattern mixing, but I am loving the mixture as of late, and yours is perfection! Love the little lesson, and the quote, and the tambourine, and how your personality comes out in every single photo!
