Feelin a little Wild and Cray Cray!

Milan Fashion Week  Source
Pattern mixing is definitely a wild new fashion trend -- It is everywhere.  I've been checking out Pinterest and many of the other fashion blogs and I must admit, some of the combinations are way too wild and crazy for this ole gal!!  Now that doesn't mean I don't like some of the pattern mixing combinations, but I'm often a little late for the fashion train.  And, I also don't have the guts (yet) to try many of them.  I am a little more classic in my style.  But, that being said, there have been other fashion trends that I have 'poo poohed' in the beginning and later ended up liking.  I guess, some trends just have to grow on me.  So stay tuned!

I've done a little pattern mixing experimentation with black and white and....

Practice makes perfect!

So, today I used the concept of one common color pattern mixing.
This past weekend I moved my summer clothing from my main closet into my small wardrobe and organized them by color.  I chose a colorful, floral yellow, dark blue and green blouse by Jones of NY and was going to wear it with a pair of navy slacks (can you say b-o-r-i-n-g).  As I looked through the blue/navy group I spotted a rose patterned pencil skirt by Bobeau.  I pulled it out and decided to try pairing it with the blouse.  I have never even thought of wearing these 2 pieces together.  Since I was going to work and because it was a bit nippy outside, I combined the skirt and top with a pair of navy blue tights and a dark blue/navy cardigan also by Mod.Lusive by Bobeau.
