Pattern Perfect

Pairing prints will create the perfect look, but only if executed properly.

1 - I begin with a  floral skirt I found at Goodwill for 25c!
        The delicate floral pattern is best paired with a simple white tank on top, so the skirt is not overpowered.

2 - I want to combine two different patterns that compliment each other, rather than each fighting for attention.

         This striped button - down [Goodwill $4.38] is bold enough to be recognized as a contrasting pattern, yet is does not overpower the skirt. Exactly what I am looking for! The blues/whites are working well together.

3 - Completed with coordinating blue wedges - also purchased at Goodwill for $4.38

4 - Accessorized with vintage pearls! :)  [FREE]

A cute and sophisticated look for under $10

Try This! If the weather is a bit steamy, loose the button down and pair with fun necklaces or a scarf!

Red, White, Boom!

I know it's a bit late for a 4th of July post [almost two weeks, yikes!]

When I think of July 4th I can't help but imagine red & white checkered table cloths, picnics, cookouts, fellowship, and of course fireworks!!

To celebrate the 4th with a bit of southern bell flare, I chose a light weight denim dress by Old Navy [purchased at Goodwill] with a draw string halter. Adding a little country, I wore a red bandanna as a make shift headband. It's a bit difficult to see, but on my feet I'm wearing white patent leather sandals, also purchased at Goodwill!

Dress - $3.38
Shoes - $4.38
