Everybody mixed prints

This is not what I wore today. For the pattern mixing challenge I wanted to do something a bit more challenging than stripes and floral, something I've done tons of times, and last Wednesday, which is when I wore this outfit.
But today's photos got rained out, and rather than take the camera out in the rain, I decided to post this outfit instead.
Now, I know I haven't let a little rain stop me in the past, but considering all my camera has been through lately, I'm being overly cautious. For a little while, anyway.

  17. This looks great! Don't you love how stripes and florals mixed together seems so tame now that it's all over the blogosphere? I felt so risky wearing that combo a few months ago!

  18. Now I'm curious what your outfit was for today, haha. But can't blame you for being careful with your camera. This outfit looks great. Beyond the mixed patterns, I love the bright blue bag, you always style your outfits so well!

  23. Your outfit stood out from the other EBEW submissions - possibly because I wore almost the exact same skirt. Mine's Joe Fresh!

  33. Adoring your take on the EBEW challenge. I saw a lot of people used stripes and I adore that you used a chevron stripe - what a great twist on the classic stripe. Great post - you have fabulous blog photos!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your lovely comments on my EBEW.

  34. I should heed your cautious approach to camera gear. I always seem to forget that my camera is my most expensive accessory by about 1,000 percent!
    You mixed prints here beautifully, even if it wasn't the outfit you intended on showing for EBEW!
