Mixing Prints

Immediately after graduating from High School I packed my bags and moved to Logan, Utah to start my college adventure at Utah State University. At the time I was planning on going into Special Education or Deaf Education, both of them sounded pretty fulfilling to me. I remember one day as I walked to class I saw a girl whose outfit has forever been imprinted in my mind. She was wearing a pink floral calico print shirt and an over-sized blue floral print skirt. I thought, “What on earth is she thinking!? Is she trying to make a statement? She must know how horribly she clashes?”  That was my opinion seven years ago. My taste has changed a little (a lot) since then. Like I said, she made quite an impression on me and I think of her whenever I put together an outfit this bold and disregard convention entirely. I’ve discovered that I’m quite fond of mixing prints these days and that once again I am guilty of breaking fashion’s #1 rule: never say never! I love pairing two different scale polka dots with stripes and a floral cuff bracelet.  I call this striped cardigan my “boyfriend cardi” (my little joke, I found it in the men’s section at Goodwill SF. Gosh I miss that wonderland.)
