Pattern Mixing

According to my girl, Jess, stars are the new polka dots! And I'm here for it, especially in this playful prep look with Old Navy. I was going for stripes, mix and match prints and some layering. So this is probably a bit preppier than you're used to seeing on me, but I also think it's a good way to transition a look from summer to fall. The layering over denim gives this look a classic feel while the printed scarf adds texture.

The star studded top is 100% cotton with a soft, medium-weight slub-knit jersey. This makes it pair really well with the embroidered floral patches on the relaxed fit boyfriend jeans. Did I mention these jeans come in plus size as well? And if you're looking for something with a tighter fit but that could also get you geared up for fall, then try the Stevie suede ponte-knit leggings in colors like wine tasting and makes cents.

And to complete the look, we're going with layers! I love a good twill jacket when it comes to fall layering. Since I already own a similar jacket in olive, I went with this one in a winter reeds tone. It's the added pretty and practical piece that you need to complete this playful look. If you want to double the embroidered fun, then opt for this version in pine needles.

Last, but not least, is the addition of this printed scarf. It comes in a variety of patterns, but I went with the pink and white floral to complement the embroidery on my jeans.

So does this playful prep look inspire you for fall? Technically, we still have almost two weeks until the official first day of autumn, but it's never too early to get your transitional game on.

That Old Navy top is such a classic, Cheryl! You can never go wrong with stripes:) And I'm so sad fall is here but one good thing is that we can layer again, which I like:D
