Plaid, Polka Dots and a Blog Hop

Monday, April 29, 2013

I am crazy for polka dots, if you haven't noticed! I have been craving a pair of polka dotted denim for months! I finally found a cute pair at Forever 21 a couple weeks ago. I have been wearing the crap out of them too! I love the idea of the micro polka dot print because they elevate a plain pair of jeans without being an over-the-top print; you can essentially wear them with anything!

Today, I decided to do a little pattern mixing. I have to admit, mixing patterns is a little tricky, and not something I do on a regular basis. However, I figured since I was working with a pretty simple color palette and basic prints, I could probably pull this look off. If my jeans were a floral print, I would have stuck to a solid top.  How do you feel about pattern mixing? Is it something you do often or would want to try?

Now, onto our blog hop! For those of you new to our blog hop, it's really simple! Brittany and I host a weekly blog hop every Tuesday. The post goes live every Tuesday morning at 12 am EST.

I recently picked up a pair of polka dot pants from Target and I've been wearing them non stop. Perfect for print mixing!

I pattern mix all the time...maybe too much. I just got a pair of polka dot jeans from target and love them. I think I'll be pairing them with a plaid shirt thanks to your inspiration!
