Sequins and Sea Breezes: Plaid + Stripes

Plaid + Stripes

12/02/2014

 
Ohh Florida, you really can't make up your mind on your weather can you? It has gone from the 50's to the 70's in a matter of days. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining about the warmer weather but it can make it difficult to dress comfortably when there's such a big swing in the temperature. That's definitely where layering and mixing seasonal pieces comes into play!


Lately I've been loving pattern mixing, especially with stripes. Stripes and leopard, stripes and polka dots, and even stripes and plaid. I know there has been a lot of debate in the fashion world about mixing stripes and plaid but I really don't care. Life is too short to always play by the rules, right? I hope you guys aren't sick of this scarf yet, I know every blogger in the world is sporting it right now but I definitely plan on incorporating it into more outfits. It's just so darn soft and comfy!
