Play on Patterns...the fun and casual way!

With clouds of snow moving in, I grabbed hubs and requested a few quick pics of my outfit.
We were having a simple day...both us left work early to meet up for lunch and run a few errands together.
Knowing this and the chance of mucking through snow and messy parking lots...I opted for some old boots.
Good choice if you ask me. As for all the patterns mixed together!? You be the judge.....

See what I mean about simple?! Easy, comfortable outfits are perfect for lunch and errands.
The colors are all so soft but the patterns...each very different. I wore stripes, floral and polka dots!

I loved this look yet was a bit nervous of what others would think. Turns out...they loved it!
I heard complements from shabby chic to how brave! Guess they felt it brave to wear polka dot pants?!

I feel this look all comes together because there are only two and tan.
Well, white too. But, keeping with the same colors made it easy to play with different prints//patterns!

Funny how I get so excited over what may be considered an easy fashion trend......Regardless, the floral shirt is as old as I am...not really, but almost. The pants and sweater set off Old Navy's door $4.99 each and those boots, my friends...scored for less than $20.00 at none other than Target.

Have you tried mixing patterns? 
What do you think is the trick to making them match? Tell me your thoughts!

I'm afraid to mix prints...I really don't know what looks good together at all. That's why I consult all the fashion blogs out there!

I LOVE this outfit, Kristine. Love love love from head to toe. I always admire light colors like this on other blondes yet never find myself pulled to wearing them like this myself. Definitely need to change that!
And in my opinion, you totally nailed all these patterns. This outfit is perfect from head to toe. <3
