Spring Mix

Monday, April 1, 2013

Sometimes it's nice to wear two trends at once to see how they work together. Such was the case with this outfit. I recently picked up this gingham shirt at Forever 21, after seeing my best friend Hayley wearing it...and deciding I needed it too—this is the only good thing about us living in two different cities! But, because I didn't bring much home for spring break, I didn't have very many bottom options to pair it with. I knew I wanted to wear something more than jeans, so when I saw my mint skirt in my suitcase, I thought it was crazy enough of a combo that it just. might. work. And...I think it did! My whole outfit felt very springy, and I am glad that the more neutral navy color of my gingham shirt was able to off-set the brightness of my mint pleated skirt.

So, here's my little piece of spring styling advice: You never know what will or will not work until you try it on! The great thing about spring is that you can get away with a lot more color and print mixing. So, when you have the chance...go for it!
