Guest Post : : Jenmarie of SHE



I was thrilled when Stephanie asked me to do a guest post and honestly a little nervous with this being only my second time! My brain went dry for about a week and then suddenly an idea hit me. Recently on my own blog I briefly talked about print mixing. The trend will continue to be around for this next season and since I haven't really played around with different prints myself I thought this would be the perfect time to!





What I Wore

Top: Forever 21
Jeans: Target
Kitten Heels: Unknown
Scarf: Cotton On
Bangles: Cookie Lee
Ring: Forever 21
Bag: OUFI

Just the other day I purchased this floral dolman top. Roses are my favorite flower and I really loved the black and white color combo. I had in mind my red animal print scarf after getting home from shopping and wondered what the two would look like together. I'm still surprised by the result! Don't they look fantastic? It's like they were made for each other. This was a small step in my print mixing adventures but I'm honestly very proud. I feel accomplished and more encouraged and inspired to take bigger steps with print mixing!

If I tried my hand at print mixing and succeeded I know you can too! Take some time out of your day, stand in front of a mirror and get mixing! Show us what you've come up with! Tweet Stephanie (@THELOUDERMOUTH) and I (@sheblog) your photos!

  1. This is sooooo cute!!
    I have never mixed prints, because I always make it look bad, but you make it look so good. So I am going to have to try it out again. Great post!

  3. Totally cute! I was print mixing just today without having given any thought to it but it ended up going very well together. I like the black & white with the red, too.

  4. So cute, Jen! I haven't tried print mixing yet, but I love how you did it here. Pairing staple colors like black, white and red definitely take away from the intimidation of mixing prints!

  6. Thanks again for guesting, Jen! You look absolutely adorable as always, and I'm so proud of you for stepping outside the box with your mixing. It looks completely natural and pretty, while at the same time being unique and funky!
