Polka Dots and Leopard Spots

For me, polka dots and leopard are one of the easiest combinations to do when I want to mix prints:





I mean, think about it.  Polka dots are round, leopard spots are round-ish:


Or blobby.  Amoeba-like?  Eh, whatever.



Look; the point is, either way, roundish or blobby, amoeba-like or whatever, leopard spots work with polka dots.

Dress: thrifted (similar)
Belt: Old Navy (similar)  Shoes: Kate Spade New York "Kayleigh"

They just do.


Happy Monday, All!

Five for Friday: Peach Echo

Now that it's finally, truly, summer, I am looking to wear more summery colors.  Colors like coral, or, as Pantone likes to call it, Peach Echo.  And I figured that I haven't done a Five for Friday post recently, so I thought I'd do one for Coral, I mean Peach Echo (but really, I mean Coral and I suspect Pantone does too).

Here my current five favorite Coral Peach Echo pieces for this summer:



1. Target Women's Floppy Hat - Hats are a great way to protect yourself from the sun.  And cute, striped, floppy hats are the best way to protect yourself from the sun.  That's science.

2. Wayf Blouson Midi Dress - Lightweight, gorgeous color, midi length, this dress has it all.  It would be perfect for a summer wedding.

3. Kate Spade New York Kensley Sandals - Neutral sandals with a coral heel?  Yes, please!  It's a bit spendy, but I think it's worth it.

4. Old Navy Mid-Rise Pixie Pants - These pants are fantastic for the office in the summer.  And, they are available in Tall as well as Regular and Petite sizes, so, yay!

5. Banana Republic Mixed Media Earrings - I have these in a navy/turquoise colorway and they are awesome in person.  They are big and bold and perfect for a summer date night!


What about you, Reader Friends?  What's your favorite Peach Echo piece?


Happy Friday, All!

High of Waist, Indeterminate of Color

Today's pants are both high of waist and indeterminate of color:


Sometimes they look terra cotta or maybe red ochre?


But at other times they look more brown:


Burnt sienna, maybe?  Rust?  Brick?  Ann Taylor calls the color "Modern Saddle" which, sure, I guess, why not?


Honestly, I'm not sure what color they are, but they are truly, delightfully high of waist:

Blouse: LOFT outlet (similar)
Pants: Ann Taylor  Sandals: Isola "Lisinda

And indeterminate of color.




Happy Friday, All!

Wednesday Ends in Y

I've decided to limit my print mixing to those days that end in "Y".  Happily, today is just such a day and I'm taking advantage of that fact by mixing some prints:




This time it's palm and stripes:




Palm and stripes and t-strap sandals:

Skirt: LOFT (similar short) (similar midi)  Blouse: LOFT (same blouse, different print)            Sandals: Camper (similar)


Because today is Wednesday and Wednesday ends in "Y."


Happy Wednesday, All!

What Owl Dreams Are Made Of

Today's outfit features teeny, tiny gingham, polka dots and a wee little owl:





Here, you can see it better in the close up, especially the owl:


His name is Carl.  And he is thrilled to be a part of this pattern mix.



But, who can blame him?  I mean, it's tiny gingham and polka dots, Folks:

Blouse: Old Navy  Owl Belt: thrifted (similar in pink)
Skirt: thrifted vintage  Sandals: "Bali" c/o LTS


I have it on good authority that gingham and polka dots are what owl dreams are made of.



Happy Monday, All!
