I didn't have a good idea for the title, so I chose what I had for lunch.
Anyway, the day before yesterday I felt very inspired by this outfit from Elizabeth of Delightfully Tacky. Well, actually each and every single one of her outfits inspires me, but this one especially because of the genuine pattern mix she's got going on in it.
I wasn't able to put together a proper floral-floral-mix, but I tried it out with florals and checkered and I think it worked pretty well because of the soft colours. Then I didn't want to experiment around, so I simply added what I always add when there's no other idea: brown. Furthermore these flats and the belt are some of my all time favourites :)
shirt: h&m, skirt: c&a, belt: vintage, shoes: thrifted, necklace: claire's, bangle: accessorize
Oh and finally I have a new wallet! Maybe you remember that my old one was stolen some weeks ago (with everything in it of course, awesome...), so that I had to carry around all my newly applied cards and IDs and God knows what else in a tiny purse that I normally use for my mobile. I was so afraid of getting pinched again when having all my belongings in one and the same little purse. Luckily it didn't happen and now I have this lovely new Primark (via Ebay) wallet.
with a picture of Patrick in it of course
As everything in this post seems to focus on floral patterns and pattern mixing I thought it would be nice to collect some more inspiration by showing you pattern mixing outfits of some of my favourite bloggers:
Andrea of A Cat of Impossible Colour mixing different florals to a wonderful vintage look.
Eva of Eve's Eden in a lovely florals 'n stripes combo.
Lily of Llymlrs rocking a leo/polkadots look.
A superchic mix of stripes and dots on Kristy of mon-o-chro-ma-chic.
Annebeth of The Styling Dutchman combines her awesome striped wedges with a polkadots dress.
It's summer and everything is colourful, so why not try to mix different colours and patterns more often? That's what I'll try.
Have a great day! :)
