Floral Pants

Pattern Mixing

After seeing a lot of pattern mixing on Instagram and blogs last year, I really started to like it, but it took me a while to do it myself. One of my first attempts at pattern mixing was very similar to the outfit I’m wearing here (with different shoes and a necklace).

Last fall, I had recently “found” my floral pants on the bottom of my casual pants drawer. I had had the pants for about five years but hadn’t worn them in a couple of years. In the past, I had only worn them with a white blouse, but I wasn’t crazy about the look. By looking at what was in my closet, I decided that my polka dot blouse would go with the pants. I like the subtle pattern mixing, which was completely out of my comfort zone at the time.

Last time I wore the outfit, I wore a blue necklace. Since I am currently in love with bandanas/neck scarves, I added a bright orange neck scarf to the outfit this time. I like that there is a bit more pattern mixing going on because of the pattern on the bandana (hard to see in the photos). I also like the bright pop of color near my face.

Since it was a bit cool, I also added my denim jacket, which I seem to be wearing nonstop lately...

We found the fun mural on the side wall of a restaurant in downtown Pismo Beach during our recent California Central Coast visit. The kid decided to have some fun with it, too!

Questions: Do you like pattern mixing? Do you like florals? And more specifically, do you like or own floral pants? What have you recently “found” in your closet?
