Mixing prints is one of the hottest trends that isn't going anywhere. Although, the trend can be tricky to pull off without looking like a hot mess. For this week’s collaboration, I decided to mix gingham and Aztec print to create an unexpected combo. If you're a long time follower of this blog, you'll know my outfits are rather simple and plain a.k.a boring =). I bought this skirt in October and had a hard time putting together an outfit. Although, I had fun playing with various combinations to create this look. Different shades of blue pulled this outfit together. I wore this outfit to work last week and got a few compliments. Hope you enjoy the series so far. Sadly, the collaboration will be coming to an end next week. Please visit other blogs for more ideas on how to mix prints/patterns.


What I am wearing:
Skirt: Ann Taylor Factory (buy similar here)

Bag: Tory Burch Robinson tote
Sunglasses: Karen Walker number one

I really love how you pulled off this outfit. Like you, I'm pretty "plain" when it comes to dressing... With your cues, I'd like to venture out of my comfort zone!
