Pattern Play Romper

Okay, I will be the first to admit it: Mixing prints can be very intimidating.  But, it is meant to be fun and allows us to shake things up in a drab sea of monotone .  My stylish future daughter in-law, Rebecca, certainly knows her way around a print or two and shows us how to step out from the neutral-hued comfort zone in confidence.

Rebecca's Print Mixing Styling Tip:

Take Risks! The technique is meant to be fun and eye-catching, so vary the scale of your prints. If the print is small, throw in a motif with an exaggerated print for a print-happy ensemble! Rebecca does this perfectly by pairing a classic leopard bag with her romper, and pairing it with a simple metallic flat. 

My son, Christopher, chose to let his colorful Superhero high-tops make the statement. Yep.

As long as you aim for a harmonious balance, the duo will look fabulous together.

Thanks so much for reading!

Rebecca is wearing:

  1. I love Rebecca's outfit, looks so effortless yet still put together! She is certainly lucky to have a mother in law like you; seems like you two have a blast together! Xoxo

  2. Love the print on this!! So pretty for summer! It will be fall before we know it!

  3. I admirer though who pull off pattern mixing to the T. I am terrified of it!

  4. I agree with you, Glenda! When I try to mix patterns it looks a little bit disturbing, haha! Thanks for stopping by! xo

  7. Rebecca's romper is stunning, lovely colours. Love her handbag.

  8. He has a couple of trips already booked with Pete, one in August and one in September, so not sure he wants to spend the money because if he goes we have to get a hotel room…more expensive. He is happy now that I saved him the $500 to fly home yesterday :-)
