My Attempt at Pattern Mixing


My Outfit
T-shirt: Victoria's Secret
Cardigan: Madewell
Skirt: Urban Outfitters
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff

I've yet to be so bold as to wear a patterned top with a totally different pattern on the bottom.  The most I could feel comfortable with was adding the animal print bag to the tone on tone pattern of the skirt.

I liked it though. Seems like it all blends kinda nicely;)

By the way, anyone have any suggestions for what to do with clothes that wrinkle after you sit? Do I need to carry a mini steamer with me everywhere or what?!!! So frustrating, but this skirt was nice and ironed before I sat down to lunch....
