Paisley and Stripes

Good Monday to you all!
We had a cool snap here over the weekend and actually hit a record low.
I hope you had a beautiful weekend wherever you were.
I did a little pattern mixing this weekend. 
 Husband was not sure about mixing paisley and stripes. 
 I told him it was all good.
I stayed in the same color family 
and the stripes and paisley are of similar size. 
 Neither one is working against the other. 
 I quite like the look.
 
 I decided my bubble necklace would be perfect with this look and then stacked on some bracelets.
I think this look is a fresh way to wear a pencil skirt without looking too much like I just stepped out of an office.

Would you mix paisley and stripes?

I don't think I own any paisley, but I think this is a fun look!

Nothing remotely office-y about this look, Brett! Love the paisley and stripes, they work beautifully together. xxx

Your paisley skirt is so cute and I love a nice Striped, Breton Tee. This outfit came out great. I have worn a lot of stripes lately myself - stop by to see them.

Have a great new week, Ada. =)
