Lace and stripes
Mixing patterns is one of my favorite activities when I'm planning outfits. I started by mixing textures with similar colors, like in this look I picked out my favorite J.Crew striped top and this lovely pink lace skirt. At first, it was like: Bela you're going to look loud AF but, I ended up loving it.
Stripes and polka dots, plaid and animal print, buffalo and stripes: mix, match and have fun. Remember, you are dressing for you.
