Business Casual Mixed Prints!



Trying the Every Body Every Wear mixed prints challenge! Love how this look turned out...I stuck with neutrals to soften the print mixing for work. I think I'll give myself a bonus point for this challenge as I mixed textures and prints (whoa...). This lightly textured blouse also gave me the perfect opportunity to wear these skinny black trousers with my Zara nude pumps. I felt cool and comfortable all day!

Completely random confession: I hate bugs and sometimes I run from them during outfit pics.  I feel confident that I'm not the only person who goes through this - I just needed to put that out there.






Ann Taylor blouse, Banana Republic pants, Apt 9 belt (Kohl's), AT Loft necklace and ring, F21 earrings, Charming Charlie's bracelet, Zara shoes, Michael Kors watch, Francesca's wristlet

  3. I think leopard print is one of the easiest prints to mix with others...I did the same thing in my outfit for the challenge! Love this look :)

  8. I think you did a fantastic job mixing the prints! I am seriously not that adventurous, textures I can mix but prints...I have a harder time! Great take on the challenge!

  10. I really love this! visiting from EBEW! I think rather then mixing prints it just looks really graphic (which is something I really like) the bold print and then the small one totally compliment each other!

  11. I love the subtle print mixing...as far as I'm concerned (and Stacy London as well) leopard print is a neutral!
