Lookbook: Styling & Print Mixing

Hope everyone had a beautiful weekend and happy Mother's Day! We'll be announcing the winners of the giveaway soon. This outfit isn't actually what I wore to the BloggerBelle event at FashionElles on Saturday. I was wearing something else entirely. But I was given the opportunity to pick out a look and this is what I came up with on the spot. Isn't it fab?And I was lucky enough to be wearing the perfect shoes too. I'll have to pat myself on the back for styling this so well in just a few minutes. Plus, it takes me out of my comfort zone because it's print mixing, which I haven't done a lot of on the Muse. But I totally love it. And others do too, apparently.

After the event I met up with some friends to eat French soul food (aka Cajun) and I was crossing the street and two cars honked. I was like, "these people have road rage." And then I looked at the guy in the car and he waves at me and blows a kiss. Weird and creepy, but at least I knew why he was honking.| Ark & Co. top c/o FashionElles | Glint & Gleam knuckle rings c/o ShopLately | Tyche shorts c/o FashionElles | Glint & Gleam ammo glam bracelet c/o ShopLately | Parisa G by Guess wedges |What do you think of this look?

I love this mix of prints, Cheryl. I wouldn't automatically think looking at them separately that they would go well together, but you really rocked this. Another honk from here too:)

two birds said...

i think i have shorts similar to these...now if only i had legs similar to yours! you look great!

lisacng @ expandng.com said...

Bravo in just a few minutes! It works fabulously because of the simple patterns, both graphic, and the bright blue with subdued neutral. Good job on already having the perfect shoes and getting out of your comfort zone.

Jenmarie said...

I've seen your print mixing before and I must say, you're an expert! Glad you had a good time at the event :)

Mighty B said...

You pull off the two prints very well. Love those wedges! Looking at the two pieces separately, I'd never think they could go together. You look amazing, as always.
