Floral & Stripes


Print Mixing 101: floral & stripes are a classic combo and the easiest way to try out the trend if you're pattern-challenged. Tip-toe into print mixing by pairing stripes and florals that share a similar color palette (like black and white in this case) and keep the rest of the outfit simple. I added this bright yellow bucket bag for a punch of color that screams summer. With temps around 90 the last few weeks, I want to wear easy, breezy outfits like this at all times.

  21. You always do Bohemian looks so well, Meghan. I love this outfit. It is slightly edgy too. That floral kimono is gorgeous and I love the yellow bag. I need some brown open-toe booties and a floral kimono too. I actually featured a Spring Bohemian outfit every day this look. Welcome by. =)

    Do stop by today and linkup with me too, pretty lady. A brand-new Thursday Moda linkup is currently up. Thanks and Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Ada. =)
