Mis-Match

Top, Shorts and Shoes: Urban Outfitters; Blazer: H&M; Necklace and Purse: Francesca's Collections; Belt: Old; Earrings and Bracelets: Forever21; Rings: Aldo and WindsorStore
I love mixing florals and stripes.  There's something about it that looks spontaneous and undone, yet still pulled together.  To get the look, anything goes really, but try to find a commonality between the two prints, such as a shared color.  Also, stick to a two-color stripe to keep the look simple and purposeful.  You want to look slightly mismatching, not clashing.  To pull the look more into "fall", I added a camel colored belt and peep toe wedges, and threw on a blazer, similar in color to my top.  Of course, fall for us Zonies isn't until a couple months away.  In fact, I don't think it even exists here.  It's not like cactus have leaves and 115 dreadful degrees still happens.

Such a great look! I love your blog btw. Great looks, great tips, useful information and to top it all off it all seems so genuine, something that is lacking in the blogosphere these days.

We don't have fall here in FL either, but I just bought some "into fall" items, I can pretend right?
