Thursday Thoughts: Pattern Mixing

Hi Everyone!

A recent purchase has caused me to think a great deal about pattern mixing. I love the following blouse and skirt from Anthropologie; they were shown together in either the catalog or on the website. I wonder, however, if I am brave enough to pull it off.


Blouse (see more tie neck blouses)


Skirt (see more cotton skirts)

I think that these pieces are really great, and they really add variety to my wardrobe. However, I keep asking myself if they should be worn together. What do you think? Do you mix patterns? Do tell!

Thanks for stopping by!

    I mix a bit, but I don't think those two go together. I don't know. If you do wear them together, I would suggest a solid cardi over the blouse. That's my 2 cents:)

    A!! Thanks a bunch. I agree, I don't think that I'm going to do it! The outfit looked so cute on the model. Oh well! Thanks again!

    I think the concept is great. Maybe the issue is that the shades of the colors in the top don't really seem to repeat close enough to those in the skirt.

    Gigi!! I totally agree with you. I am looking for a solid green top to pair with the skirt. I may try the J. Crew Talia blouse in wreath to see how it looks.
