Mixed Up

Working on my pattern mixing as of late. Seriously do polka dots go with everything?

At first when I paired this crazy DIY skirt with this top I was not a fan, but it has totally grown on me!

Its still cold in the Mitten. I try not to complain to much about winter though because winter in Michigan is like November through April, thats almost 6 months long! And I love my state and I love the changes in seasons...but I prefer mild winters ;)

The hubs and I are off to visit friends in Connecticut Friday, I can't wait! I love a good road trip with my hubs and I am excited for a mini vacay! Stay touch via istagram (isacar5) I am sure there will be no shortage of pictures!

What a great skirt! Love the fun pop of polka dots!

Lovely pattern mixing! A fellow blogger said that leopard is a neutral which blew my mind. It odes go with a lot of things so perhaps polka dots should be added to that list?

Franziska said...

um yes, polka dots DO go with everything (or so I tell myself). I love how bright and cheerful your outfit is. I'm definitely still getting used to wearing more color!
