I wore the crap out of this maxi in 2013, but didn't photograph it as often as I should have. I also played more with maxi dresses and a colored maxi.
Mixing prints was definitely a big thing on the blog even in 2012, but in 2013, it became so much more natural. I specifically loved this outfit because I remember getting to work and having a co-worker comment on my pattern mixing, and I hadn't even noticed I'd done it. It just felt right, I guess. Other examples of pattern mixing are all over the blog, but here is a favorite.
These Warby Parker glasses are my second-favorite accessory (first is my engagement ring...does that count?) and I loved the way they transformed simple outfits. Plus, they totally work with messy hair, one of my favorite things. See how else I've worn them, here.
