One of my style goals for 2012 is to learn how to mix patterns. I love how these ladies; Ann of 9 to 5chic, Tara of Mix and Match Fashion and Jen of Her Waise Choice, makes mixing patterns seem so effortless and chic. Mixing patterns is a challenge for me. I couldn't seem to grasp the concept on styling two prints without looking like a hot mess. =)
I wanted to start with little patterns and hopefully be more adventurous once I get better at it. I got my inspiration from Jean's post Style in a Suitecase, Part 1- Gingham and Lace. I love how she styled her lace skirt with the gingham shirt. I have the same lace skirt and wanted to style it with the same color combination along with something a little more feminine.
