A little mix n’ match never hurt anybody

Hey hey hey,

I am currently running on about 2 hours of sleep and dreading all things school this week, but I am two tests down this week with only two more to go.. thank you baby Jesus. But ya know I wouldn’t leave you guys hangin, I like you much more than studying anyway. If only my tests were based on finding cute clothes, or reciting every word to Fergalicious and One Less Lonely Girl, then I would be highly prepared and not so sleepy. Old school JB always picks me up when I need him, and of course nothing makes me happier than a supes cute outfit.

My favorite kind of outfit is one with mixed patterns, colors, and textures. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good matching set just as much as the next gal, but mixing it up is so much fun. So if fish are friends, not food, then that means that pattern mixing is a friend not a foe as well. Seems like a poor example since I could eat sushi everyday of the week, but I am just on a Finding Nemo kick, so you will have to deal with it!

I am going to refer back to that neon green zebra print just one more time… pairing this with your hot pink cheetah print crop top is not the mix n match I am talking about. You really shouldn’t be pairing either of those items with anything (besides the trashcan)  if we are being honest. I am specifically referring to a cute, chic version of mixing it up. The perfect examples are leopard and stripes, fuzzy tops and silky skirts, eyelet shorts and lavender, and lots of others, but you guys will stop reading if I list anymore.

You never want your outfit to be boring, so even if you prefer wearing black for everyday of your life, try mixing textures with a cotton tee and Sherpa sweater, or maybe you are already rainbow crazy so you could try purple stripes with a pale pink floral. But remember when mixing and matching, if you look like Ms. Frizzle or a character from any Dr. Suess book, you may wanna dial it back a notch or two. But who am I to tell ya what to do?! You do as you please, and enjoy and shop my other favorite picks for putting together the best mixed outfit you possibly can!

So you get out there and get wild honey boo boo child!

Xo, Ciera
