Subtle Pattern Mixing

Good morning, ladies! I am SO SO SO excited that it's Friday. It means I get to sleep in tomorrow, ha ha ha. Saturday's are my saving grace, I swear. :P

Pattern mixing is something that I was introduced to right when I started blogging. At first, I was so mesmerized by that concept. It was just something I had never ever thought about doing! Through blogging, I've mixed and matched for myself: polka dots and stripes, polka dots and polka dots, floral and stripes, floral and polka dots... You name it! Today I am mixing a THIRD pattern, which I don't often do... Today it's all about camo, stripes, and leopard (whaaaat). To avoid pattern mixing from looking too jumbled, it's important to use subtle patterns. For example, my stripes and leopard are very minimal, which balances out the camo jacket!

This studded camo jacket is from So Perla. They offer really pretty women's fashion products, and their prices are unbeatable!! This jacket is only $19.... I'd say that is a steal! Make sure to check out their cute shop! :) This striped shirt is a top that I bought during Gap's Friends & Family Event. I had seen it before, but decided to hold off purchasing it until the sale. When I went back for it, IT WAS GONE! I was soooo sad. But I figured someone must have tried it on and not wanted it, so I went back to the fitting room... Lo and behold, there it was on the return rack, in my size. Holla. 

This look was inspired by THIS pin. Make sure to follow me for some great outfit ideas! :)
