print mixing is such a fun way to play with fashion but it can get a tad bit confusing sometimes. fall is the perfect time to try out the trend since you will likely start layering pieces and are able to work them together more.

this plaid coat is one of my favorite pieces and sadly it’s old and i haven’t found quite the exact match but this old navy one is just about identical except the length (plus you can’t beat the price)

i love to always keep my looks neutral but i thought i would mix it up a bit with this look. suede skirts are all over the place now and although i love the camel colored ones it’s not a great shade on my skin. i decided to give the black one a spin and liked the way it looked subtle but funky. my friend blair also has a baby blue one i am in love with and may have to snag soon!

to mix in some print i added my stripe turtleneck and threw on my new over the knee boots. i will say i struggled with this boot purchase for the past two seasons. i have smaller calves and longer legs (i am not complaining) but it makes finding over the knee boots difficult. i ordered over 10 last season and not one actually went over my knee & i’m only 5’8. these go well above my knee and stay up so are a great option for taller girls! even if you don’t have those issues these boots are so well made i couldn’t recommend them more. they are a beautiful fabric, fit everyone i see them on perfect and differently, and come in so many shades. i opted for the flat boot even though i love the heeled one just because i thought i would get more use out of them. i think long term they will serve me well and i feel even better about purchasing them after wearing them!

for me the trick to print mixing is to limit it to two pieces – more than that can start to look a bit chaotic. i also like to keep the colors of one of the prints basic – black & grey or black and white just to add some balance and then have fun with the other.

fashion should be fun so don’t be afraid to try anything and just because it isn’t appealing to one person’s eye doesn’t mean it won’t be to another. hope you guys are having a good week and feel refreshed after the weekend!

    I’m 5’7″ and have “chicken legs” and that’s my biggest hold up when ordering a pair of these boots! I’ve been worried they will slouch in all the wrong areas. They look so amazing on you and I love the color of that skirt 🙂
