Dark wash skinnies (Ross – $10)
Aqua solid top (somewhere in Cali, maybe Ross? Under $10)
Striped cardigan- (ebay $10)
Chandelier earrings -(no idea where, prob on clearance)
Brown flat knee high boots- (Amazon $25)

The trick to mixing patterns is to make sure your patterns are quite different, and that one is a small print while the other is a large print. If they are two different kinds of prints they won’t compete as much as if they’re kind of similar. Here we have very delicate prints in my scarf with lots of colors, in contrast to the straight bold lines of my black and white striped cardigan. They’re close to the same size print, but distinct enough I was able to pull it off.

And here is a scarf I found in my NMR app that I love!! I think it’s $12, but I’m pretty sure I saw some similar ones on eBay for cheaper. Gonna try there first.

A few outfit ideas…

I’ve been ├╝ber into the whimsy maxi skirt personal decor lately, as well as drapey sweaters and headbands. Here are some outfits I’ve put together and documented for my own sake. I tend to have a hard time getting it on camera but here are some I managed to get. I also snuck in a good second-day natural curls up do for ya!! Forgive the apparent similarities between outfits… I’m obviously obsessed right now!
