Stripes and Florals?



Well, I could not have been happier when I saw the January issue of Lucky Mag!  Bright colors and pattern mixing for an issue I will keep forever as an inspiration.  And how appropriate with my last posts~

Although I must say, quite frankly, what they are touting--that florals and stripes are the easiest union--is the most difficult in my wardrobe.  I don't know if its the stripes I choose, or the florals--haven't figured it out yet, but I will.

Meanwhile, here is another mix:

Not really a floral and a stripe--more like a graphic and a stripe.  The fact that the scarf matches is just serendipitous!
And if you don't know it already, go to my page "Color and Pattern" for more.

  5. I really, REALLY like that cover shot. I, in fact, have long been attracted to the pattern mix "thing".....Just can't quite carry it off to my satisfaction personally. Sigh.

    1. Start out with small prints--it takes some getting used to but jump in!

  7. Love your pattern mixing, but Lucky's not so much. I think stripes and florals are about the easiest to mix compared to anything else.
    The blue is so pretty on you.

    1. I never thought so; as I said in my previous blog. To me, 2 graphic prints are so much easier--ie stripes/polka dots or houndstooth/ polka dots?

  8. Your outfit here is a "WINNER"!! I cannot wear stripes or patterns of anykind without looking matronly. The only pattern that works for me is polka dots. Also large floral as well. Hmmm.....maybe I could try to mix those two patterns together?? I think all the mixing looks GREAT for editorial purposes as well.
