Mixing Patterns

Top: Gap, Skirt: American Eagle, Shoes: Asos (on sale now!)

This weekend was a hot one, but it was also beautiful and sunny. Saturday I went to my aunt's house to celebrate my cousin's 7th birthday. My favorite thing about being home from school is being able to attend all of the family get-togethers. When I'm in Philly I usually don't come all the way home for birthday parties and that kind of thing just because it's a an expensive 1.5-hour long train ride home and then another 45 minute drive to my house from the train station. As much as I love the comfort of amtrak, it stinks we only have one of the more expensive trains come out this way. 



But, on to the outfit. When Derek saw me wearing this he was instantly like "uh, you don't match." But who cares! It's been beautiful and sunny so I want to mix patterns and wear bright colors. Besides, I justified that this goes together because my skirt has the colors of both my top and skirt in the floral pattern. Good enough, right? 


I hope you all have a wonderful Monday. It's the start of a new week! Time for a fresh new start, that's the way I try to look at my Monday's now so that they don't seem so bad.

  7. hahaha--"uh, you don't match." Silly boys! The reason we don't match is so that we can match things that don't match. Don't they know that?

    I do love your pattern mixing. :) And that exciting pop of green from your shoes is way delicious. I just used the word delicious to describe shoes... ah well.
