Outfit Post: All Mixed Up






 
Leopard Booties: Charlotte Russe (similar style here and LOVE these)
Skirt: Zara (on sale)
Top: Thrifted
Necklace: Forever 21 (very similar style here)
Nails: Sinful Colors "Neon Melon"
 
 
I love experimenting with my wardrobe. I definitely like to take risks and try new options - why be boring?? I've been wanting to try mixing patterns for a while but had yet to really dive in (I did try florals and leopard together on a smaller scale here) My first choice was to test the waters with stripes, but so far I can't find a striped top I love (that and a denim chambray have been so challenging for me..) So I thought why not try it with shoes?
 
I've had these leopard booties for a while and I wear them with TONS of pieces in my closet. Jeans, Skirts, Shorts - they're a fab go-to when you need a dash of playfulness. The watercolor print skirt isn't too over powering which makes it a perfect complement with the leopard print. I kept the rest of it simple with a slightly sparkly silver sweater and a whimsical elephant statement necklace.
 
Tell me - have you mixed prints yet? What's been your favorite? I need some inspiration! Happy Monday!
