Blast From The Past - Mixed Prints

Dear Diary,
Spring is on its way and there’s no better time to draw some inspiration from the runway. So it seems that Spring is the time to be playful with colors and prints, but just wearing prints is not enough; mixing prints is the ultimate goal.

Inspired by a Prada runway look, I looked into my own closet for stripes or floral. With some minor adjustments, I’ve found a way to wear the latest trend that best fits my style.














Floral Dress (Adams): The Art of Trickery















Stripe Blazer(Taiwan): Strong Shoulder

















Lace up Heels (Zara): Feeling Striped

Oh I love how you mixed these patterns! I admit that I'm a little afraid of mixing patterns, but the stripes and floral are so in sync with this outfit.

I've been following your blog for some time now, and have yet to comment. I love EVERYTHING you wear. You honestly have the best wardrobe ever. This outfit is beautiful and a total inspiration - I'm working on mixing prints too!

Glad to see I'm ont the only one who takes inspiration from runway pictures and makes it actually wearable, totally loved more your version, mixing and matching can be tricky you on the other hand did it great, that necklace is amazing!

HI Ladies - thanks for the comments! I have to admit mixing prints isn't intuitive for me either. But since Prada just paved the way, I figured I can't possible look too bad!

Have a great week!
