what's silk and printed all over?

silk bow-back blouse, gap; silk shorts, zara; tweed jacket, ellen tracy via winners; sandals from an artisan in greece. 

when i'm not wearing white in the summer i'm wearing mixed prints and here is a perfect example of my go big or go home mindset. not only are both these silk pieces printed, they're also both textured. the shorts have a shell pattern kind of embossed onto them and the blouse has swiss dots. look carefully. i don't know what that's all about but apparently the new cool thing to do is to put completely unrelated prints and textures both on the same fabric. whatever, i love texture. the more the better, hence the tweed.

and for my feet, these sandals, which were about 15 euros and a last pair and they actually repaired them for me in the store. i think they're one of the most unique pairs of sandals i've seen while simultaneously looking really classic. sorry about the chipped toenail polish - if you knew me you would know that i am the worst ever at personal grooming (see earlier posts about this).

and look at the back on that blouse! isn't it cute?


  1. THIS IS AWESOME i love the mixed prints and i love the way the colors go together
