Trending Tuesday: Being Brave & Mixin' it up!

And by 'Being Brave' I mean that I want to master the art of MIXING PATTERNS people!! I adore this trend but have never really put together an entire ensemble that embodies this trend. (help!) I'm going to work on that this fall and have been pinning ideas like crazy. (I'm a total fall person all.the.way) 

Luckily I follow along with some pretty trendy fashionistas like mmhmm Miss Zelle @ Southern Style! Linking up today with her for a little mixing patterns preview. Let me know what you think- And don't forget ya'll- you can do this in your home decor as well! Check em out below for other trending styles and join in!

Here are some of my favs so far:

  1. Pattern mixing is so pretty, just kind of intimidating to do. I have one outfit where I mix patterns and get so many compliments. I know in 20 years I'll look back at pictures in that outfit and say "what was I thinking?!" Lol.

  2. I'm with you on this one!! I love the trend but just not sure I would be able to pull it off!! The lace skirt with chambray shirt would be the best though!!

  5. I really love the first look! So cute! I'm finally starting to get on board with "animal print is the new neutral," but I've got a long ways to go in learning to mix patterns!

  7. I'm the same way - scared of mixing patterns! But I love the ones you've posted here. Love that stripes are acting as a neutral in some of them too.
