True Beauty Files: Mixing prints.

{Block Striped Sweater: Old Navy, Printed Tank: Old Navy, Denim: Rockstar Jeggings (similar), Shoes: Francesca's, Necklace: swap gift from Nikki, Sunglasses: Nine West (similar)}

How was your weekend?
I actually managed to tackle that to do list I mentioned! I think when you speak it aloud or write it down, the chances of getting things done are greater...:)

So the debate on colored denim was between golden yellow and jade green...I ended up with coral. Its an all time favorite color. After trying on colored denim at HM and Target, these fit the best. Are you adding fun colored denim to your spring line up? Let me know if you have found a good pair!

Style Word: There are so many fun ways to mix prints this season. I layered two prints above as one option. Liz has a great round up of more print mixing ideas for you to check out!
(Leave your outfit post links in the comment section! I am working on finding the best way to link up for upcoming posts!)

P.S. Check back in tomorrow for a fun new giveaway and the winner of the Poshlocket giveaway (you still have today to enter)!

The True Beauty Files:
A lookbook for the modern modeste.
"The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years." 
~ Audrey Hepburn

  40. You are an absolute rock star in my book, Anna. Not only do I completely fail at mixing prints, I can hardly buy them at all. I don't know why they give me such problems, but they do.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Adorable, Anna! Always looking so classy and fun :) I snagged a pair of lilac colored denim at Anthro when they were on sale a few months ago...they're AG brand and I love them! Super comfortable.

  53. i always enjoy your outfits and styling. this one is great, so bright and hooray for mixing prints.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I'm just so happy you started doing outfit posts! I always look forward to the next one :)

    I tried on the colored skinnys at my store (AE) but didn't like the way these particular skinnys fit me. I am excited though because I learned that the knit jegggins from AE are making a come back for Back to School and there will be new colors. You've probably seen me talk about them before. They are the most comfortable pant! I can't wait to see what colors they come out with!

    Anyhow, I'll definitely have to try the ones over at H&M. I didn't realize they had colored pants right now!
