Style Remix: Leather and Floral


I have to say that the floral print trend has been growing on me lately. This H&M skirt that I scored on major sale last Fall remains one of my favorite skirts in the closet. This time, I tried to do something different by mixing floral and stripes together. If you're a long-time reader of this blog, you may have noticed that I am very conservative when it comes to mixing patterns. Since the weather is getting a bit warmer, I pulled out my (faux) leather jacket. The leather jacket gives the outfit a finished-off look and adds an edge to the softness of this floral skirt. For those who celebrate Easter, happy Good Friday and have a great weekend, everyone!


What I am wearing:
Skirt: H&M *old* (almost identical here)
Tee: H&M (buy similar here or here)
Sandals: Express two-strap heeled sandals - LOVE! (available in 4 colors)
Jacket: c/o OASAP (buy similar here or here)

  3. Great look. Loving your jacket, it is perfect for the look.
    I am still on a hunt for a great leather one that fits my short arms, lol.


  4. Love this remix, Sydney! The jacket toughens up the look, but you still look classy.

  5. Love this look, Sydney! Feminine, lady like with an edge! Fabulous!

  7. ohhh love the floral skirt so pretty!!! very a. mcqueen!

  8. Love the remix! The leather, stripes, and floral look fab together and I love your hair pulled back like that :)

  9. I like the leather jacket and the nude lipstick looks nice on you.
    Need to find a jacket similar to that.

  10. Delurking to say how much I love this combination! I've seen this skirt at H&M for months, but this may be my favorite way I've seen it styled. I'm usually very shy about pattern mixing, too, but you pulled it off wonderfully!

  11. I love the stripes with the floral! Great mixing of prints! Very subtle, I think. And the toughness of the jacket and delicateness of the strappy heals really balances everything out.
