Mixing Patterns

“Embrace contradictions
for they make up
all of life:
You will eternally be
looking for yourself and
seeking ways to lose yourself.” 
― Kamand Kojouri

Today's mantra is not only abut contradictions in ourselves but also reflects on the way we wear our personalities. I have had the best time lately being open to mixing items in my closet that I typically would not. Stripes and florals are a perfect example of this. I think that the safe bet for mixing patterns, if you are just starting (the gateway outfit) may be to pick a black and white patterned piece first. Then, choose an item that adds flare. In this case, I have a very versatile striped bodysuit and I paired it with this floral maxi shorts.
