Day three- Pattern mixing

To be honest with you I wasn't so sure about this challenge.  I'm always the girl who is matchy-matchy, so mixing patterns sounded dangerous.  But I chose to accept this challenge (because it is the point to get me out of my comfort zone...AGAIN) and I perused my closet anyway.  I found the floral skirt first (I don't only wear skirts, I promise!) first.  Next came the cardigan.  But I didn't want to wear the polka dot cardigan all by it's lonesome, so I found an orange/white stripe tank to layer with it!  Over all I have three prints working and I think I may have found a new favorite outfit! 



Cardigan: Old Navy, Tank: Maurices, Skirt: Target from 5 years ago, Shoes: Payless Shoes

Yay for pattern mixing!  I think I've found a new hobby!

Ummm...yeah. I think this might be my favorite look that I've seen linked today. Love the colors, and I wouldn't even go, "Huh..." seeing it together (which is usually my reaction to pattern mixing).

i absolutely love that skirt and think you hit pattern mixing perfectly. i like to be matchy matchy too (and skipped the pattern mixing day of this challenge for that reason, ha!) but i could definitely see myself wearing this same outfit. :)
