Hey hey hey! Another day another dollar! Not sure why I said that…I don’t even get paid today. So, no dollars for me! But let me go ahead and claim it by faith for the future! Lol. Anyway, how have y’all been? I hope you’ve been having a great week and that you enjoyed the giveaway last week/earlier this week. Thanks again to those of you who entered!! There are several more giveaways coming to you guys to thank you for all of your support! So, stay tuned!!
Today’s look, like in my last post, features another Chic Creations and Collections (3reeCs) design. How fun is this top?! I love the colors and the flounce sleeves. There’s a dress that’s coming to the blog soon, maybe next week, from Chic Creations and Collections that has the same fabric as this top, but is mixed with another fabric too….it’s super cute. You’ll know it when you see it, and, of course, I’ll remind you! Be on the lookout for that. Speaking of mixed prints, I am mixing a couple of prints in this look, like I like to do!! The way I’ve mixed the prints in this look is easy if you’re just starting out on the mixed prints bandwagon. If you look at the close-up of the top, you’ll see there is a part of the design that is white with black stripes. It wasn’t a great leap to add the black and white striped ball earrings to coordinate. Then I took a bigger leap to go for a different print and add the black and white grid pumps! I kept the mixed print in the same family of colors, black and white, which, come to think of it, seems to be my favorite color combination to use for mixing prints (as you can see here, here, and here). As I’m typing this, I realize I need to branch out more and try mixing prints with different colors, not just black and white! I’ve done it before here, but I need to do it more with bolder prints/colors. But for all you mixing print newbies out there, let that be a lesson to you…an easy way to mix prints, is to mix the colorful print (particularly if it has black or white in it) with a black and white print (like grid, or stripes, or polka dots, or gingham, etc). They mix well together.
That may have been all over the place, but I hope it makes sense. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions, and make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss a post! Have a great weekend, and thanks so much for reading!!
