This week I teamed up with Laura from Walking in Memphis in High Heels and Erin from The Fashion Canvas to each style an outfit with mixed prints! I have to admit that when I heard this week’s theme I was a little intimidated…sure, I’ve worn mixed prints before (floral and stripes, polka dots and plaid) but that’s just it…I thought I had already paired together everything in my closet. I didn’t want to go out and buy something new so I forced myself to rummage through my closet and put together an outfit using only the items I already own. Normally I wouldn’t have thought to pair leopard with nautical ropes (?) but since they have similar colors in their print, I decided to go for it. Is it a home-run? In my opinion, no. But it broke me out of my rut and forced me to look at my clothing differently. Too often I’m tempted to go out and buy something new because I’m convinced it’s the missing puzzle piece to several great outfits. But I challenge you to “shop your own closet” and pair things together that you normally wouldn’t…you might just be surprised with what you come up with!
