New Look // Mixing Patterns: Blue Stripes & Pink Florals

Hey everybody! It’s officially the season for summer dresses. This time of year I always stock my closet with versatile, lightweight, and girly summer dresses that make getting ready, whether for work or play, a total breeze. I played around wit mixing patterns today, pairing this beautiful, fit-and-flare blue striped dress with pink floral heels, combining some of my favorite style elements: florals, full skirts, and a contrasting color palette. Hope you like!

But all year round, a great way to add a lot of interest to your outfits is to dress in opposite colors on the color wheel: like red and blue (here, blue and pink), green and yellow, burgundy and navy, and so forth. So fun!
