DETAILS: GREEN PLAID BLAZERย (WEARING SIZE 4) | GREEN PLAID MINI SKIRT (WEARING SIZE 4 – UNDER $100 –ย  HOW CUTE IS THIS ONE?!) | STRIPED TOPย  (WEARING SIZE 4 – ALSO GOT THIS ONE) | WHITE SNEAKERS | OVAL SUNGLASSES | ROUND STRAW TOTE

I go through phases when I’m constantly buying neutrals, and then next thing I know my closet is colorless haha. So all of the sudden I’m loving all things bright and colorful – probably a side effect of winter ๐Ÿ™‚ I found this green plaid blazer and mini skirt combo and was in love (also obsessed with this pleated pinkย – so cute.) I ended up trying it on with this striped top and it was such a fun combo mixing prints! I especially love the red and blue stripe down the sleeves for another fun accent color.

If you aren’t used to wearing a lot of color, even mixing two tones might seem like a lot but it’s so easy to do and makes for a great statement outfit. If you are still worried about it being too bold, balance it out with neutral accessories like white sneakers or a neutral straw bag (LOVE this one! It’s a great size and under $50). Or go bold! I also got these bright blue boots that match perfectly with the stripe on the side. It’s a statement look (especially with a red lip to bring it full circle) but hey, some days call for more color than others, right? I also got these pink track pants and can’t wait to wear them!

Below are some more of my favorite colorful pieces lately!

    So what was the #1 trick to mixing prints and colours? From an article I understood that it just happened by accident which means the title of the post is wrong.
