Floral + Stripes

June 5, 2018

You are witnessing something today on the blog that I never thought would happen. 

I am wearing floral + stripes. 

I know...

it's shocking.

Honestly, I didn't think it would work, and have openly expressed my dislike of mixing patterns for years BUT this is such a small splash of stripes with the floral that I thought I would give it a go.

And you know what?

I actually like it, like a lot. As in I might even repeat this trend on a larger scale and try out some other mixing of patterns.

Don't expect anything too crazy - I mean, I am still pretty traditional in my style rules, but I have been trying to push myself to do new things so I can add mixing patterns to the list. 

If you haven't noticed yet - I am mildly obsessed with these shoes.

They literally go with everything - like they can't look bad. Its actually a little odd how versatile they are - and they've been perfect for our recent travels because they are also surprisingly comfortable. 

*note...no, this is not my scooter...but huge props to the person who parked it here because it was the perfect prop.

 

Cheers to serendipitous moments.
