Polka Dots and Checkers

Mar 15, 2013

I love print on print looks (clearly). Especially if it's a mix of classic prints like polka dots and checkers. If there's a pussy bow involved then the look may or may not have entered a whole new level.

How can a girl resist a good bow, you know? (For the record, I unintentionally rhymed that.)

Shirt- Gap
Skirt- bought in Thailand
Parka- H&M (old)
Booties- Topshop

  15. Mixing prints is always so fun. I do it as much as I can. I love that you're rocking such a great outfit, despite the cold! I live in Minneapolis and tend to cover up with warm boots and puffy jackets for five months out of the year!

  16. I saw that shirt and now wish I would have bought it! I use VSCO film for my images!!! I have film pack two. Before I used that I used photoshop elements. I doubled my layer, set the top layer to soft light (sometimes if it was too much I'd set it to 75%), and added a grey solid fill layer on top and set it to about 13%...confusing, but if you play around with it you can conjure up some sort of film like look! but I do love VSCO film...it is easy to use and I think film pack 1 is on sale right now?? I really want it!
