Mix and Match


Mixing prints is the perfect way to add a little fun to the everyday shirt and shorts combo. The best way to combine two patterns is to use a common color palette  Here the black and white stripes are a great compliment to my neutral floral shorts. In addition to mixing and matching prints, another trend that I have been loving lately is high-waisted shorts paired with a cropped blouse. Not only is this a great outfit to beat the summer heat, the silhouette feels vintage and modern at the same time. I hope everyone had a great weekend and thank you for reading!
