Mixed Prints for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: The Adventuresome Version
Quote of the day: “Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul.” Emily Dickinso
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!
50’s Outfit: You might recognize this blouse as my mother’s from the series we did (here). I was not lying when I said I was happy to inherit it!!
60’s Outfit: Nancy said she always thought of this shirt as older ladyish—so here’s a great way to modernize it, right?
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?
If you liked any of these photos, it would help me if you pinned them to your own Pinterest board. It’s one way that others can see our outfits.
Even if you wouldn’t consider purchasing your clothing online, it can be helpful to look through my links to see what is available! It certainly doesn’t hurt my feelings, if you click on them but don’t like them. Just so you know, one of the ways I make money from this blog is through these linked items.
