21 Day Challenge: Day 3 - Mix patterns



Outfit Details:

blouse - H&M, skirt - Anthropologie Apothecary skirt, bracelet - Locale, shoes - Connie

I came up with this outfit a few nights ago when choosing yesterday's tuck it in look. I was sorely tempted to use it for the day 2 challenge, but loved the mix of patterns so much that I had to save it for day 3.

Normally, I have a hard time tucking in anything blouse-y with a full skirt. I think this works because the skirt is high waisted and has that thick waistband. It tames the volume on top like a high waisted pencil skirt would (that's what I tell myself anyway).

The top is very pretty! And I like the way it picks up the pink flowers on your dress, like it ties the whole outfit together.

I love love love this look. I've always been hesitant to tuck in blousey shirts with full skirts, but I think this looks awesome. :) The patterns go so well together, I almost thought it was a dress!

polka dots and florals really go well together. tucking in the blouse makes the bow stand out more...which is a good thing! :)

I love how the blouse brings out the light colored flowers in the skirt! (I can see why you were tempted for the Tuck It challenge though!)
