Stripes and animal print

I'm a recent convert to the beauty of prints so I don't have a ton of options for mixing prints in my closet. That's why I'm surprised I didn't come up with this stripe-and-animal print combo earlier. The silk blouse is one of my absolute favourite thrift finds and a go-to for work or a night out (as in this post from the fall). But it was nice to find a way to dress it down too, with jeans, boots and a preppy cardigan.

  1. When it comes to mixing prints, I tend to be a bit hesitant... I know there is a big appeal, it just seems a little out there for me. But stripes and animal print is my favourite! To me it isn't even really print mixing because they're such a natural match. Needless to say, I'm loving this look :)

  2. i love mixing prints, but I haven`t in awhile. I love stripes + animal prints, especially the combo you`ve got going on. it looks very modern & sharp.

  3. kat, you are looking smoking hot! this outfit is fantastic. did you feel pretty in it too?

    1. Thanks Teddi! This outfit is very *me* - preppy with a little bit of edge - so I felt relaxed and confident in it.


I genuinely enjoy reading everyone's comments. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts!
