I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of print mixing. It’s so much fun, to carelessly throw two very different patterns together that somehow not only can co-exist but also compliment one another in an effortless way. The Spring/Summer 2013 fashion week season promised so many interesting prints and patterns all mixed and mashed in one ensemble with reckless abandonment, which I love. Sometimes it’s a bit risky but print mixing looks so awesome when you get that right combination.

One of my favorite print is floral because it goes with pretty much anything. For example this outfit was total accidental. I had on a white crop sweater yesterday morning over this stripes tank and the oldest pencil skirt in the history of all pencil skirts. It’s really that ancient and is pretty much falling apart, but it’s so stretchy and comfortable that I refuse to throw it out. Well, being the clumsy person that I am, I spilled coffee all over my sweater. Luckily I had this blazer in the car and actually love the combination far more than what I’d originally wore. The moral of the story and why I just put you through a really boring example is sometimes unplanned things are better than thought-out ones! :)
Happy weekend guys! I’m going to a wedding this Sat and am excited to share with you how I’m going to make a formal evening dress (for the reception) work for a day time ceremony. See ya on Monday!
Oh well that fashion risk certainly paid off KT…..you are absolutely looking so radiant here!!!
I have been waiting for this blazer to make another appearance on here! I adore this one, the colors are so gorgeous. Speaking of gorgeous thing also, your hair!! Its getting so long I love how it looks in these pictures, soft, flowy, silky shiny! Your lipstick is to die too. I don’t think it was a boring rendition of how this outfit came to be either :)
Have a Great Molli-Dae!
Rocking the patterns combination once again! :)
I love this girl!!

Love your sunnies!
You look so beautiful :)

Beautiful as always! Love your style boo!
I see that sunshine in your hair, KT! :) And it’s getting so long and pretty, I love it! But as much as I can talk about your hair (sorry if that’s creepy, love you!), that outfit is PERF! Just wonderful for a fun, punchy work ensemble yet able to translate into playtime after the office! Love that floral blazer–definitely very spring/summer like. And those ankle boots! Brilliant. :)
I love the print combination on you. Combining patterns can be difficult, but sometimes you can just throw 2 pieces together and it works!
Agreed with the below! So pretty and happy weekend honey!
I don’t know which one is prettier, the flowers or you? Oh wait, never mind, of course it’s you ;)
KT – I love your style and how you put everything together with so much confidence! I mean as a petite gal myself, I am terrified of maxi dresses, long midi skirts and puffy anything (tulle skirts) but I see you wear them with so much ease, so effortless and with so much confidence! It really makes me want to try them out too! You’re a breath of fresh air and I love your positive (and sometimes funny) attitude! I hope you are enjoying your Friday and I can’t wait to see how you’re going to style a formal dress for daytime!
