Mixing Prints

For EBEW, the challenge this month was to mix prints.  This is way outside my comfort zone, but since change seems to be the theme in my life at the moment, I decided to give it a try.  The Mr. bought the shirt at Kohl's for me and the skirt is Willi Smith.  I thought they went together, only to discover the dark parts in the shirt were actually navy, not black. That's what I get for picking my clothes in low light.  I'm not sure if this works or not, but I am open to mixing prints in the future.

Week 2 is going well.  I am already on a project, so this should be exciting.  I am looking forward to the challenge of learning something new.  My brain should be happy this month with all the new stimulation.  Tomorrow I think I'm going thrifted, short, and sleeveless.  The heat has made a return and we are back to scorching temperatures.  This weekend we went canoeing at the Delaware River Canal in New Jersey (near Princeton).  It was gorgeous and relaxing.  Unfortunately the camera died, so no pics.  Technology is great, until it stops working.

  1. Awesome job! I love this bold contrast!

    So glad to hear the new job is going well - and I'd love to hear more about what you're doing.

    The end of summer is going to be a little nutty for me, but how would you feel about meeting up for lunch and then thrifting somewhere around Philly, maybe in late September?


  2. You have mixed them perfectly! <3 I love the skirt you're wearing!

  3. Hello..I found you from the EBEW challenge. I think you did well with mixing prints. The subtle blue in your blouse add a nice pop of color for your skirt.

  4. a midi skirt and mixing prints?! You get the 2 for 1 trends award. :) found you on EBEW; I participated too. It was more challenging for me than I thought, but loved the outcome and seeing everyone's styles.

  5. I love this outfit, the patterns work nicely together! Great job :)
