Aussie Curves: Mixing Patterns!

Yay! What a fun week! I love mixing patterns...sometimes extremely with one big bold pattern against another which has those who don't understand saying "are you really going to wear that?" to me LOL.  and other times where the patterns are quite low key and blend quietly together!

This week I teamed this fabulous patterned crop jacket I found in a Brooklyn thrift store (that was the MUMMA of all thrift stores, THREE levels of goodness!) with a striped circle skirt. I added the yellow inside shirt for a bit of pop! The outfit has a bit of a 50's look to so up went my hair in a high pony tail!

S/O to our Gabby from NY who was (and yes, I'm sure I've mentioned this before...) THE BEST tour guide for our second round in New York and for taking us to our thrift store Promised Land!! :D



Cropped jacket, thrifted $6/ Yellow cropped collared shirt, thrifted $2/ Striped circle skirt, thrifted $3 MS Opshop/Suede brouges, Rivers $20 

 



 How do you like to mix patterns? What is you logic behind the fun? Please share...

Big Love x
