In the last of this particular series in print mixing, I decided to try to be a little more adventuresome and really mix it up! Now to those of you, who mix your prints all the time, this may seem very tame. But like I explained in the first post (where we combined black & white prints here), I’m by no means an expert—just a girl, trying out something new! The second post (here) was a shot at mixing prints by using a textural piece as one of the “prints.” And if you think your look could benefit from mixed prints, then check out Sylvia’s tutorial here!

70’s Outfit: My mom will be the first to tell you she’ll never wear this outfit on her own! I happen to think it turned out great—you?
