In with the prints

These pants have been much over due for a fourth wear. I do really like the printed pants trend, though I tend to play it safe when styling them. Maybe I'll pair them with a stripe at some point, but I think that's as far as I will go.

Do you have any reservations with pattern mixing, or is the sky the limit?

Last day of the Wallis blogger ambassador competition, thanks again for your support!

  1. I am in love with these pants! Love the bold colors. I always tend to shy away from bold colors with patterns, but you styled it perfectly :) Makes me want to find a bold patterned pant now!

  2. I like pattern mixing in small doses. The printed crops are a great print so I like that you play it safe. Adding another print would take away from the awesome pants! Heather

  3. LOVE the leather jacket with those pants! And what fabulous shoes :)

  4. I need, want, love, adore those pants! The colors, the fit , they are just perfect! Oh and that chunky chain bracelet too, is perfect for arm parties! Looking fab Lyddie!

    Cee. ♥

  5. The pants return!! haha. Love how you styled them with the jacket :)

  6. EEKKK!! Those pants are so fabulous! I love the pattern, it's such a great print and totally refreshing. I think definitely pattern mixing in small dosses will completely change the look of this, although I am super loving it right now.

    P.S. When is your birthday? I need to send you something!

  7. Wow, you are so effortlessly pulling off those crazy awesome pants. That's it, I'm resolved, I need some printed pants!

  8. I love the printed colours the way you styled them. Gorgeous sandals!

  9. I play it safe when it comes to printed pants - and pattern mix is not my forte so i think and rethink it before wearing it.
    Those trousers are quite awesome -

  10. I love those pants paired with the leather jacket. I think I would have styled something similar if I had patterned pants...don't know if I could do the "more than one pattern" fashion...I'm not so daring lol. Good luck on the Wallis style ambassador!! You know you have my vote!

  11. You have such cool things from old navy - love this print!

  12. Cute look
    I like that you keep the pants as a focal point with simple clothing on top

  13. I love the bold print and the sassy colour of your pants. They look stunning on you, darling.

  14. I feel like I've never been able to pull off pattern-mixing very well... everyone else can do it so effortlessly, it seems, but when I go for it, I feel as if all madness ensues...

    haha, but you, my dear Lyddie, look wonderful with bold, bright patterns. I'm loving those pants--and how unexpectedly fabulous are they with your leather jacket?! <3

  15. Those pants are so fun! I think depending on the print I like to mix them but with a super bold print I keep it more subdued everywhere else. Love how you wore your printed pants!


  16. how fun!! i love the bright colors!!

  17. I love mixing prints, but that print of your (awesome) pants is so bright I'd probably stick to solids with it. But...I'm boring.

  18. Very pretty print! I love those shoes!

  19. I just love the pants! :)

  20. Love the pattern on those pants - so pretty! But yeah, I think I'd bit a little hesitant to mix them, too. They're already so bold and eye-catching.

  21. gorgeous everything omg I love the heels the pants everything so well put together love it!

  22. Love the pants and the shorts from your last post! I'm sad that Old Navy never seems to fit me right because they have cute stuff! I feel the same way about printed pants - I'm always pairing them with simple shirts. I was thinking throwing a striped shirt in there too at some point but we'll see :-)

  26. Gorgeous outfit, love the pants and that jacket is so perfect!!

  27. Very nice outfit and that patter of panst is perfect. Have a great day.

  28. These pants are amazing! I love that I can't quite tell what the print is... looking at them is almost like looking into a kaleidoscope, which, in case it didn't sound as complimentary as I meant it to, is awesome :)

    My list of reserves when it comes to print mixing is pretty much endless :) It's pretty rare that I both like a print and feel like it looks good on me, but when I do, I really love it... so when it comes to styling, I want it to shine, not get mixed in with several other prints. I do make an exception for stripes and polkadots, though - they were meant to go together!

  29. I love your rad pants and the cute heels <3


  30. Those are some awesome pants! Love them. I would probably keep everything else simple as well, though.

  31. I really like how you styled these pants! For me, sometimes the sky is the limit with pattern mixing and sometimes it's better to keep it simple, it just depends on the items and the look I want to go for I guess...

  32. I do love those pants, that print is so pretty indeed.

  33. this is pretty! perfect combination! love your pants and you jacket <3

  34. Sometimes I feel really conspicuous when I pattern mix, other times not. If one pattern is very bold I usually don't like to wear it with another... unless it is very subtle!
