EBEW: Pattern Mixing

Hello everyone!
I am late to the EBEW party because our Internet service has been down since Monday night.  The dude just left from replacing our modem.

Wow, it is hard to live without Internet.  I kept teasing son1 and son2 that now they know what it was like growing up in the 80's.
Anyway, back to the pattern mixing....

Pattern Mixing | Everybody, Everywear

I decide to try my hand at mixing stripes and polka dots.
I incorporated my beloved stripe maxi and this cute little polka dot blouse. 
 The skirt is black and white and the polka dot blouse is actually black and super light pink. 
I added the tangerine belt and bracelet for some color.
  The wedges complete the outfit.
I will have to say that before I started blogging I was not a pattern mixer. 
 I have become an avid pattern mixer since about January. 
According to the fall editions of InStyle and Lucky pattern mixing is going to be a big trend this year.
So for all of you that are scared of pattern mixing, just give it a try. 
 Don't be shy!

Those wedges are awesome.  Losing the internet is no fun.
