Work + Relaxed watching a DVD movie snuggled up in my bed.

I don't know why, but I have been mixing patterns left and right lately! I just love how it makes an outfit so much more interesting and bold looking. One pattern that I find particularly easy to mix is polka dots!

I love how polka dots look with floral prints (like today's outfit and this outfit), or how polka dots look with stripes (like this other outfit), I'm even planning to make an outfit mixing polka dots with more polka dots!

Have you done any pattern mixing using a polka dot print?

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this floral skirt:

  1. Cute outfit! You are great at mixing prints. Love the earrings and shoes :)

  2. It's a fantastic outfit! I mixed prints for the first time EVER last week. I'm still learning, but it was fun regardless. :o)
