In case you haven’t noticed, I find nothing better than mixing prints – especially when there is some whimsy involved. I love this outfit, and although it is rather simplistic, it still has some surprises around every corner. I always find clothes more special when you sweat the small stuff and pay attention to detail; may it be some lemon piping on a sweet pair of shoes, a muted pattern paired with something more bold or a surprise fox brooch hidden behind your hair.

  2. Ooh, this is gorgeous! I love how feminine yet casual this look is. And I love the way you mix prints - you pull it off so well! That polka dotted J. Crew cardigan is especially fantastic with the printed tank and darling heels! I normally don't go for kitten heels, but they look so cute here!
