Mixing Patterns

Hey hey! Hope everyone is having a good week so far. Thursday is my Friday this week and I am so excited because I will be headed home to be in one of my besties wedding! Weddings are seriously my favorite, so much fun! 

Anyways, let's talk about how cute this outfit is! Mixing patterns has always been scary for me, because you can easily look crazy, but these two different stripe patterns pair so well together. Shout out to my friend Holly for making me try this on! Not going to lie, at first I thought she was crazy and thought to myself that's going to look so bad together, but then once I put it on, I loved it! Both the top and shorts are from Vestique! These shorts are perfect for summer - lightweight, colorful & comfy! Currently, these exact shorts are out of stock so I've linked some similar ones below from Forever 21! 

So I don't know much about mixing patterns, but I do have a couple tips to help you if you want to be bold and try it out.  I definitely think you should try it at least once because its super cute and makes you stand out, in a good way! My mixing pattern style tips are:

Keep colors in the same color palette for both prints. 

Prints that are easy to mix with patterns are polka dots & stripes with either florals or abstract prints. 

Break up printed pieces by layering a neutral on top such as a jacket or cardigan. 

Let me know if y'all have any tips that I can try out!
