Mixing Prints

On Mommy: Target gingham shirt, Banana Republic leopard cardigan (from years ago), Joe's jeans, Pour La Victoire boots, J.Crew and Nashelle necklace, Louis Vuitton bag
On A: Roxy sweater, Target leggings, Old Navy boots

To keep this mixed print look clean and easy on the eyes, I stuck to the same color scheme. The animal print sweater and the gingham shirt are in varying shades of the color gray. As a result, the look is subdued but with enough visual interest created by the two prints.


Did anyone see the Oscars? Who did you think was best dressed? Were you happy or disappointed with the winners? Let's discuss!

Hey there! I absolutely adored Gwenyth Paltrow's gold dress! It looked like liquid perfection and she accessorized with perfection! She was number one, with Jennifer Hudson, Halle Berry, and Cate Blanchett all coming in a very close 2nd!! They all looked amazing and I was pleased with Natalie's look this time, cuz I loathed the Globes pink monster!

Love mixing prints! I almost wore a gingham shirt with my print sweater but last minute decided on stripes. You and A look great!

Halle Berry looked stunning as always!

Mila Kunis & Halle Berry were my faves. Natalie Portman looked great preggers, too! Sadly Witherspoon was not shining as usual. What about u? Wish I saw the red carpet! Our neighbor was there - so jealous!

You're both adorable! I know I say that every week but seriously, you ARE! I love the pattern mixing in this outfit, the two smaller prints work perfectly together. Awesome!

Your daughter is adorable!

I love the way that shirt looks with the cardigan - the mixing of the prints looks surprisingly good together. Not something I would normally think of, but I really like it!

Banhannas: Same makeup routine. :)

Oscar picks: I agree with a lot of you. My #1 pick was Halle Berry too. I audibly gasped the first time I saw her! I also loved Cate Blanchett (the yellow was genius!) and Mila Kunis (loved the peekaboo lace and the silhouette!)

I like your combination of patterns! Makes basic pieces interesting and new again! Great idea!
Wondering what camera you use?

Oh, I also love that necklace. How long ago did you buy it? Think it's still available?

Anonymous: Thanks! I use the canon s95 and love it!! I got the necklace maybe 6 months ago? I don't think they sell it anymore but not sure. Hope you find it! I love it!!

nice mix, i need to learn how to mix prints up! mila kunis's dress was my favorite, romantic, feminine and such a gorgeous shade with her skin tone.
