Pattern Mixing : Keeping It Casual

Top: Pink Martini via Zulily // Shorts: Joe Fresh // Round Sunnies: Forever 21
I love pattern mixing.  The trick for an every day "running errands" kind of look is to keep it simple.  If one of the patterns is subtle, like these polka dot shorts, then you can literally go nuts with the other pattern, like my fun floral top.  I'm quite fond of this top, actually.  I love Pink Martini, and I when they were on Zulily recently, I snatched it up.  I had about 3 or 4 other pieces in my virtual basket, but since they we're nearing the end of summer, I went with the most versatile piece. I'll definitely be able to pair this with a cute cardi or sweater this winter!

Also, just because I love Zulily and have scored many deals on there, I think it's only fair that I let you know that another favorite brand is featured there right now... Sugarhill Boutique! Quick, go shopping!
