Style Sense

 Star-print shirt: H&M Kids, Skirt: Forever 21, Boots: Asos, Accessories: Forever 21 hat, Karen Walker sunglasses, Mulberry x Target mini cross-body bag

This is one of the looks that caused style confusion for my husband. He saw me as I was about to walk out the door and asked, "does that go?" He was kindly referring to the star-print shirt and spot-print skirt mix. Admittedly, I questioned the mix myself but, I went with it. While a large reason for staying in this look was because I didn't have time to think about whether my outfit made sense and then change but, also because I clearly didn't mind the look when I put it on and walked out of the bedroom. 

His reaction, although good-hearted, reminds me that there are times when we pick things to wear that may not be obvious to others. We make choices that appeal to our senses and that's what creates personal style. Sure we may not appeal to the masses all the time but, why do we have to? That's why I love to find and follow style bloggers. They create style from items we can all find and relate to (for the most part). I'm always inspired by the world around me and the blogosphere is no different for inspiration.


  1. It definitely goes! I get that a lot at work, people don't get my style, but I am ok with that! I happen to love your outfit!

  2. I think you can definitely pull this look off! I love how the black/blue hat ties it all together.

  3. Haha I get a lot of those types of questions from my friends/roommates. Ah well, all about personal style, right? And I happen to think these two prints go - you made them work!

  4. This looks great, love the combination of these two prints! You look stunning :)

  5. I definitely think this print combo works--- but I am pretty sure my husband would react the same way. Seriously though, great look! Sometimes mixing prints feels juvenile, but I don't think that is the case here…...

  6. I love the pattern mixing going on, and those sweet little booties.

  7. Those two prints look so good together Nancy! You are the princess of mixing!

  8. Love the mix-matching of the prints! Xo

  11. Ah, this one of my favourite looks from you! The mix of prints is so much fun. I could see my boyfriend having the same reaction- but sometimes I know that means my look is extra good ;)


  12. I'm one to mix prints too! I love your attitude about personal style and not always appealing to everyone's tastes, do you boo boo!!
