Dots and Stripes

Zara Top (similar style here), Club Monaco Lace Shorts (similar style here), Charlotte Russe Polka Dot Earrings (cute style here), Zara Heels (also seen here), Jcrew Rhinestone bracelets (similar here), Vintage Rhinestone Cuff (similar style here)

Mixing prints can be tough, but when you choose two classics like stripes and polka dots, it turns into a piece of cake! I like to choose one color that ties both prints together (for example, in this outfit I pulled black into my top and my earrings). If you still find mixing prints challenging, try to mix in an accessory (like my earrings from above) as an accent instead of two focal pieces. This is a safe and subtle way to get your feet wet prior to diving in head first!

Lots of Love! XOXO
