{Outfit}: Mixing patterns and looking Preppy

Pretty Outfit Pretty Outfit

  Wednesday June 12, 2013

This is what I wore for a casual movie date with my boyfriend. I'm always amazed at how stripes and polka dots always look fantastic together! If you want to give the pattern mixing trend a try, you should definitely give the stripes + polka dots pairing a chance. Its easy and always looks great!

  19. Hahahaha thanks Heidi!!! I'm sure you could master braids like these, you just need to practice until you feel comfortable doing it. I just finished editing a video on how to do this hairstyle, I hope to be posting it this week!
