Confession: I am not the bravest pattern-mixing style blogger on the interwebs. When I wore this yesterday, I felt like I was blazing a trail in new mixology frontiers; florals and stripes — quite daring for this conservative dresser, I thought…

Then I looked at the photos. And realized that the striped half of the equation is so subtle, from a distance they just look solid. There’s nothing trailblazing about florals and solids. Clearly I need to step up my game.

However, if you’re not a trend-obsessed style blogger and just want to mix things up a little in your day-to-day, may I suggest adding a bottom of the teeny striped variety to your closet? They add just a little something to keep things interesting, but won’t overwhelm you if you’re a pattern-mixing newbie. Like me.

    I am at the point of being a somewhat timid pattern mixer…I’ve gotten more and more used to the idea, but I’m no Frassy yet, haha. I actually really like your seersucker and floral together, thought it made a charming combination! That colour is beautiful on you too :)

    Following your blog…you’ve got great style and your posts are super fun to read!

    Admittedly, I didn’t notice the stripes at first, but, regardless, this is a great foray into pattern mixing. I love your blouse – it would look good with almost anything!

    xo,

    Cute outfit!

    This looks like a magazine photo shoot to me for some reason–maybe the high contrast between the colors in your outfit and the landscape? Cute!

    Gorgeous blouse! Everything about it, from the color to the pattern is Summer perfection!

    How brave of you! You could mayyyyybe try something more daring next time, but good for you for taking the first step. You can totally pull off pattern mixing.
