Pattern Mixing ReDux

Happy Wednesday ya'll!
Today for the 21 Day Challenge we are pattern mixing.  If you remember not too long ago I did pattern mixing for the EBEW Challenge.
I decided to add some color and some unexpected patterns this time.
I actually wore this last Thursday before I found out pattern mixing was even in the challenge.
Look at me planning ahead and not even realizing it.
I chose these two patterns because not only did I think the patterns played well off of each other,
 but the colors helped to make it more cohesive.
I think son1 has picked up on the pattern mixing trend because yesterday he was wearing large checked shorts and a striped shirt.
  Naw... he just grabbed the two closest items of clothing next to him.
Check out my cute friendship bracelets! 
 I got them in a friendship bracelet swap over on Chasing Davies.
My swap partner was Megan from Everyday Nonsense
 I just love these babies!!  
 Thanks so much Megan!

Nice pattern mixing! Your nearly neutral prints work well together.

This is such a cute outfit. You look so cute in everything you wear though. I am trying to make some friendship bracelets. Who knew a kids craft could be so hard?

LOL!! on planning ahead AND Son1.  and I think you have a winner.  I would be second-guessing myself, but I think you did a great job.  

Betty said...

BTW, your hair looks really good!! Did she put more layers, or what?  It plays up your waves!!

You are a pattern mixing pro and I love how you painted one nail a different colour than the rest! I love when (like your son), my bf throws on an outfit that is accidentally fashionable ;) - Tinfoil Tiaras (Disquis doesn't like me so is refusing to use my regular log in!)
