Freckles in April: Miss Mix-a-lot

Miss Mix-a-lot

Spotted Moth top (gift from my in-laws), H&M pants, Target cardigan, earrings from JCPenney

Surprisingly, this prompt was by far the hardest one of the challenge for me. I guess it had been a while since I made a go at pattern mixing and you should have seen my bedroom floor while I was desperately trying to find something that worked. I came up with some ridiculous outfits. I couldn't bring myself to walk out of my bedroom in those ensembles, much less venture into public. My boys were rather amused.


Hey there shoeless Joe.

Yeah, it's safe. BUT! I mixed three patterns. Striped cardi (had a Target coupon!), feather printed blouse, aaand subtly patterned pants. Pat myself on the back.

Also, we went to our friends' little girl's first birthday party and I did, in fact, wear shoes. The party was at a park so I wore my park boots. They're ugly and beat up but they keep the nasty sand off my feet. It wasn't worth the effort of pulling them back on for pictures. Laaazy. 

How did you do?? Link up below or add your picture to the Flickr group!

  5. I love the cardi and top together.

    I never would have noticed your pants had a pattern... I'm not that perceptive. HOWEVER, kudos for getting three patterns in one outfit! :)

  6. I like this! I feel safer when the patterns are in the same color family.

  18. I like this a lot. It follows the one pattern mixing rule I know a really well. 'Match colors in the patterns.'
    I ended up pull on a lot of thing I couldn't wear out of the bedroom either. I didn't think it would be so hard.
