EBEW: Pattern Mixing

Dress: Target (shop similar)
Belt: Forever 21
Wedges: Target (shop)

This month's Everybody Everywear theme is pattern mixing!  Okay, I know a floral/paisley dress with a little striped belt hardly counts for pattern mixing, but I was already going to post this outfit and I don't have time to take more outfit pics.  You'll forgive me, right?

I don't think I'm much of a pattern mixer anyway.  It's a little chaotic for my OCD tendencies.  But then again, who knows?  Style blogging has gotten me trying lots of new things so maybe I'll become a crazy pattern mixer yet!  We'll just have to wait and see.  :)

  1. I'm so with you - I thought pattern mixing was a hard challenge especially with my OCD tendencies. I am much better at matching my clothes than I am a pattern mixer. Oh well.

    Anyway I love your dress - it fits your body perfectly! So cute!

  2. You are so cute!  Pattern mixing is a hard one for me too! That's why I skipped EBEW this time around.  This dress is adorable!

  5. Cute! Simple is a good way to start. I definitely didn't attempt pattern mixing before joining a couple of 30 for 30s... but I still keep it tame for fear of looking like I'm going to clash day at school (did other schools have those?)

  6. Subtle is a good thing! I'm not a great print mixer myself. I think you look great!

  7. I definitely agree that starting out simple is the way to go. I think the stripes look great with the that dress! Next to polka dots, I think that stripes are the easiest to mix with other patterns.

  8. You get commendations for the attempt to branch out from your norms--that's what EBEW's about, right? Anyway, whether or not it should qualify as mixing patterns you look adorable.

  15. The first picture made me think: Cute dress! But wait...where's the mixing? Then BAM, I saw the stripes on the back of the belt, which I really love with the dress!

    I was never one for pattern mixing until I started reading fashion blogs. It opens your eyes to SO much more!
