Safari Prints.

In today's outfit I am mixing prints, Wild Prints that remind me of a Safari (hence the title "Safari Prints") but they are both sort of muted and the colors compliment each-other. The B+W Pencil Skirt is definitely Animalistic but in an abstract kind of way. It is one of my many lovely pencils I have from The Limited. The Blouse is a Mint Color with Small Black Tigers all over it. Last I wore it for Winter and I am glad to wear it again for Spring because it is a cool linen-blend material and I love the fact that it has 3/4-length, almost-elbow sleeves as I find the length on these sleeves very versatile, year around. Because the morning was a little chilly I added my Tailored Olive Green Blazer. The Pretty Jewelry in Earthy Green+Gray tones pick up the Colors of both the Top and the Blazer. Those Earrings & the Bracelet are mixed+matched quite well. And for this busy Mom, a pair of Cute Black Patent Leather Ballerinas, finished off my styling. If I were to take this Outfit to the office, I would switch to my Black Patent Leather Pumps instead, though the Flats work too. Vivian's Outfit is mostly Mint+White too. The natural light coming inside was a bit much so I do apologize about the pictures, sorry. Do you own anything Safari-printed? How have you worn it lately? Do you like how I mixed, Black, White, Mint & Olive together?

  2. Wow, this was a challenging outfit to put together, but those two prints go really well together. I love the mint color in your top and I think since it is sort of muted (like you said) it goes well with the skirt. I also love how you always include your daughter in your fashion shots! :) The blazer really makes the outfit look professional, but I love it without the blazer, too! You always have such fun outfits, love seeing what you put together. Thanks for linking up with What Wives Wear!
