Well, first of all, taking pictures of myself instead of having my husband do it really doesn't cut it, does it folks? Plus it's kind of embarrassing and awkward. Whatever.
Take it from me, making a bold statement with your outfit is the way to go. If you mix patterns and combine colors that generally wouldn't go together, people will think you know what you're doing - even if you have not a clue. That's the beauty of fashion. Style is up the individual. So be bold! These posts by Sydney from The Daybook inspired me to do more pattern mis-matching in a bold way (especially because I own that very skirt).
