Mixing prints can sometimes be tricky because it you are just a little off then it looks totally crazy. Lately, I have been trying to mix prints because it adds an un expected element to your overall look. When mixing prints it is best to keep one of the pieces neutral. For this look that I scored from Old Navy, I decided to keep the tank neutral and pair with a printed skirt and then finish the look with a striped tote.
Another tip when mixing prints is add a solid to break up the eye. Since I was headed to lunch and often get cold I decided to tie this chambray top around my waist. The top is perfect to throw over the look if I got chilly but also great to break up the prints and not make it seem as crazy. Are you a fan of mixing prints?
J.Crew has always been a favorite store of mine, so when I found out they were opening their very first concept store, J.Crew Mercantile, in Dallas I was ecstatic. The new concept store, J.Crew Mercantile opened just last week in Dallas at The Shops at Park Lane and believe me I was one of the first in the door to see the new store. J.Crew Mercantile is the brand-new way to shop the J.Crew styles we all love but with new deals everyday (hello savings). Not only is the store so gorgeous but the clothes are ah-mazing.
While I did pick up quite a few goodies to wear now and for fall (cannot wait to share), since I am so over this Texas heat that I wanted to mix up my outfit posts and share an inspiring look that is a great transition outfit for when the temperatures actually start to drop. I mean what is easier to throw on and more polished looking than denim and chambray?
Lucky for you Dallasites, you too can not only check out the new J.Crew Mercantile store at The Shops at ParkLane anytime but I want to personally invite you to the grand opening party THIS Thursday, July 30th from 5-8PM. There will be sips, snacks, music, mini-manicures and of course lots of great shopping. Oh, and did I mention that I would be there? I hope you all can stop by this Thursday night and say hello!
