When I look thru my outfit photos, I see rarely a look where I just wear on printed or patterned piece. It seems that when I wear a printed or patterned item I can’t resist to stop at just one item. In today’s OOTD, I even have three prints: stripes, polka dots and flowers.

When mixing prints, patterns, or prints and patterns, one has to ground them. Black would be a no-brainer, safe bet for the skirt. However, I used red as the grounding color for this look. It permits to add the white of the stripes and dots that is not a common color in the skirt.

Pro tip: A leopard print is sort of a neutral and hence easy to combine with prints.

Top of the World OOTDs

The Top of the World Style Winner is picked by a random generator from the party two weeks ago. The reasons are as follow: Each party runs a week minus 5 minutes. At the time of scheduling a new party, the old party is still in full swing and blogger still can join. To give all guests the same chance, the old party has to have closed before drawing the winner. In plain English, the Top of the World Style Winner visited the linkup party two weeks ago.
