one of my favorite looks is to layer contrasting patterns;
in this case, gingham and stripes.
i’m a J. Crew girl at heart,
so gingham is one of my staples.
it’s easy to get caught up in trends,
but i try to keep it real when it comes to styling.
mixing patterns embodies this attitude.
from an early age we are always taught to coordinate colors, patterns, etc.
the truth is, clashing is the new matching.
if it goes together in an offbeat sort of way,
and in the words of the immortal coco chanel…
“The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.”
