My Favorite Patterns

Dots + stripes is by far my favorite pattern mixing option. Animal print tossed in there is a close second, but you can't beat the simplicity of a stripe + dot, in my opinion. It's funny to me how pattern mixing comes so naturally to me now, but a few years ago, I wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole. I think a lot of my style norms now used to be untouchable: pattern mixing, brown + black together, and wearing a watch every day are all pretty simple examples. What things did you used to avoid that now are totally everyday things? 

Dress: LOFT (similar)
Cardigan: Nordstrom (similar)
Boots: Sam Edelman 

Also just have to point out that these boots (the best boots ever) are now on sale. They come in dark brown and black, too, and are insanely comfortable. Go get yourself a pair!
