pattern mixing

i’m a firm believer in pattern mixing. mostly because i’m a firm believer in having fun with your clothes. also, when you allow yourself to wear things like polka dots and stripes together, it creates a lot more options for outfits without requiring you to do any shopping. although, let’s be honest, i still go shopping more than i should.

when i received this polka dot from The Chic Orchid, i originally figured i’d just pair it with jeans, or maybe leggings, and call it a day. i was standing in my closet the other day, trying to think of something different and this skirt immediately caught my eye. i put it on and knew that it was the perfect combination. i realize some of you will probably disagree (that’s the beauty of personal style! it’s personal.), however, i love it.

what would you pair this top with? want to get one of your own?

The Chic Orchid offers new deals monday-friday at 6am MST, which is awesome because they offer great products at prices way below retail. they have limited quantities – so if you see something you love, you gotta snatch it up quick.

they also do a weekly instagram contest where you can post your #ootd (outfit of the day) and tag #chicorchidstyle for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate. winners are randomly chosen every friday.

as if that’s not enough good news, “like” their facebook page to get updates and to learn about the latest deals!
