a case of the blues

//Gap blazer / J.Crew Factory blazer/ Loft necklace (old) / Express jeans/ Tory Burch reva flats/ Brina Box pave bracelet/ Forever 21 bracelet//

One of the most recent style trends I've gotten into is monochromatic outfits. Two years ago I never would have paired a blue blazer with a blue shirt, but now it's almost the first thing I reach for. It was Shanna of Because Shanna Said So who inspired me to put a striped shirt underneath a polka dot blazer. I am all for mixing patterns, but for some reason this was something I had never tried!  What was even better about this outfit is that it was made up of things I have had for over a year but never paired together. Thank goodness for the blogging world, right!?

Also, congratulations to Mary-Katherine for winning the scarf from Shop Fresh Picks! I will be sending you an email later today!

I would love it if you would follow me on GFC or BlogLovin'!

  3. The mixed print looks good together... as long as one print is more dominant than the other I find it works... like this outfit :) Have a lovely rest of the week Darcy :)
