Outfit Post: Mixing Camouflage and Stripes

I can't get enough of mixed prints lately. Leopard with Polka Dots, Florals with Ikat, Camo & Stripes.. what once was considered taboo is now totally in. And even though this isn't the most bold mixing I've ever done, I still love the ease and chicness of the combination.
 







 
GAP Camouflage Printed Utility Jacket (get 30% off using code GAPFRIENDS)
Banana Republic Metallic Striped Sweater (last season - love this version)
Express "Stella" Skinny Jegging (old)
ShoeDazzle "Lisa" Rose Gold Metallic Wedge Pump (sold out - splurge option)
GiGi New York Saddle Uber Clutch in Pebble Grain c/o || ILY Couture "Sweet Candy Color" Neon Necklace || Nordstrom BP "Flash" Pink Mirror Aviators (splurge option) || Zoya Matte Grey Nail Polish || Maybelline "Fuschia Fever" Lipstick
 
This past weekend was an exciting one but it was Sunday morning that I was actually looking forward to the most. Emily, the gorgeous blogger from Life with Emily hosted a bloggers brunch at my favorite restaurant Coquette Brassiere and I finally had the opportunity to meet some local NC bloggers!
 
In our world, heck in any world, it's beyond important to stay connected with actual face-to-face time! Sometimes it's easy to get behind our twitter feeds and facebook pages that we forget to form real-life, in-the-flesh relationships. I was so happy to meet some lovely ladies who I've been fans of and finally putting a 3-D face to the name.. and.. photos!
 
After getting over the initial nerves and introductions (the bottomless mimosas helped a bit with that) we instantly bonded, sharing our hilarious tales of shooting outfit pictures and how nowadays we meet so many friends online! It was so refreshing to meet some new gals who share the same passions as myself. And, okay... I guess we had to be cliché and take a typical bloggers-with-their handbags group picture:
