no competition here


Top - BEDO / Skirt - Spoof / Shoes - Primark (England) / Bag - Costa Blanca 
Necklace and ring - gift / Bracelets - Tiffany & Co. and H&M 

Up until this year, I've always felt that I couldn't mix patterns because there would be too much going on - too much competition between the busy pieces. So for the most part, I'll mostly pair a pattern with a solid. I think  the key with mixing patterns is making sure there is one of the two should be a little muted. For the Everybody Everywear Challenge - Pattern Mixing, I paired this skirt (once was a dress... and then the dryer happened... followed by the inevitable shrinkage) with a striped lightweight sweater. I think it works (at least I think) because the top is much calmer than the skirt. And of course I had to pull colous from the skirt for the shoes and the bag!
