This is the ultimate outfit in pattern mixing as it has stripes, dots and florals – my 3 favorite patterns. The top itself is a statement piece to wear as it even has little florals on the pocket detail. This top can be worn with plain jeans, a plain colored skirt, but I thought this floral skirt (which had similar colors to the florals on the pocket) was just perfect! 🙂 The trick to making pattern mixing look good (if you aren’t super bold) is to make sure that there is one color that is used throughout all the patterns, in my case it is navy blue! I got both this top and skirt from a store called Nest Boutique! For those located in Utah, it is in South Jordan just west of the District. The store is seriously one of the cutest stores even in Women’s clothing, kid’s accessories and home decor. I seriously wish I could transport the whole entire store into my house, I’d be so happy if I could! The owner is an interior decorator so the home pieces are on point and their buyers for Women’s clothing have a great eye for fashion!
I also wanted to point out this necklace from gLockets. I met the owner of this shop at an event a few weeks ago and she was wearing a locket with a camera inside. I thought it was a the cutest thing and wanted one for myself. I own a million and one statement necklaces and sometimes it’s nice to just wear a smaller charm necklace for a more dainty look… and they are a little more work professional than large and loud statement necklaces. For my glocket, I decided to go with a vintage oval gold one and filled it with beads in the colors of the birthstones of my little family… July, September, November and December! I love how the colors look together and how it represents something meaningful to me. 🙂
