Mixing Prints

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend. My Saturday was a very busy one with appointments and meet-ups. By the end of the day, I was just ready to relax with my family. On Sunday after church, we went for a friend’s baby shower before taking Nolan for a drive.

Right now, I am so excited because my birthday is next week and even more excited for my first Mother’s day celebration i.e. after Nolan’s birth. If you are still unsure what to get that special mum or lady for Mother’s Day, you can check out my gift guide here and here. May is definitely looking great.

If you have been following my blog, you will notice how much I love mixing prints and I am not the type that will shy away from them (prints). When mixing prints, it is always advisable to have a common element that connects all prints be it a color or pattern. In my case, the common elements are color and pattern. Navy and peach colors are visible on both the top and pants and the round patterns are similar on both pieces.  I completed the look with a statement necklace for a pop of color and touch.

Outfit: Pants (here, love this here & here) // Top (here, similar here, love this here) // JCrew Necklace (sold out, love this 30% Sale here & here) // Lipstick (here, love this here) // Aldo bag (old, love this here & here) // Christian Louboutin (sold out, love this here, budget friendly here & here)

Thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day.
