mixing it up

Top (old)/Skirt (Skies are Blue)/J.Crew Factory tights (here)/Madewell Shoes (here)/J.Crew necklace (love this one - on sale too!)/Rebecca Minkoff Sunglasses (here)

I found these polka dot tights at J.Crew factory on super sale last week and decided to mix them in with a few items in my closet of similar colors that were in need of a little attention.

Takeaway Tip: mixing prints is easier if you keep the color palate simple.

After spending more than a few winters in Boston I have amassed quite a coat collection, which makes bundling up more exciting. I've been working on my hat and scarf collection the past couple years because I've decided the and easiest (and most non-threatening) way to mix prints and textures is with outerwear. Fur, plaids, polka dots, houndstooth, stripes - the crazier the better!
