Happy Monday! I am writing this from beautiful Las Vegas! We are here for the week because Austin is competing in Team Roping and I am selling my handbags! I just got a new colorway in on Saturday, you can shop it here! It’s super cute!!

Today I wanted to talk about mixing patterns. I know it can feel intimidating when mixing prints or patterns for the first time, so and I wanted to address the topic as I think it can be less intimidating than you may think. My ultimate rule of thumb for someone just starting to mix patterns for the first time is keep it simple. To start, try mixing stripes, and a leopard or a plaid. I mix these all the time, and sometimes even mix all three! In this Instagram photo I mixed all three and it was super cute! Stripes are such a great staple in general, that choosing to wear leopard scarf or pair of shoes is a really easy transition. Once you mix patterns the first time you will feel more confident, but I sear it look’s really cute!!

In today’s post, I mixed patterns with my beanie and my striped dress. I also combined black and brown. When combining color, don’t be worried about that either! Since I knew I wanted to wear the leopard beanie and stripes combo, I wanted to build on the fact that I knew I wanted to combine two patterns that were black and brown. So I finished off the look with my favorite brown over the knee boots and black faux fur vest.
