long layers & pattern mixing

Pattern mixing, layers, and a little animal print, is one of my go-to recipes for interiors and entertaining, so it makes sense that it translates right into my wardrobe as well. invited me to try share how I translate that look into my every day with pieces from their and I was pretty excited to find some that fit right in.

  While I am actually not much of a sweater person, I can definitely do a all day long. Thin knits are perfect for layering without adding too much bulk and, to me, keeping the length long feels a little more stylish than your average cardigan. By keeping the sweater light, it also gives you more room to play with layering on . I kept it casual by letting the ends hang loose, Archie likes to hide and play peek-a-boo in the long tails.

 Subtle pattern mixing is the name of my game. Remember this tablescape? If I had to translate it into an outfit this one would be it. If you are looking to mix patterns but keep it subtle, one trick is to vary the scales of patterns and keep the color palette in the same family.

Pairing a small pattern with an oversized more graphic pattern is an easy win (like the and the plaid on the ). I’ve also added in the third pattern, , which scale-wise lands right in the middle of the two. So now I’ve got a small, medium, and a large. Varying the scale keeps the patterns from competing with each other and creates a balanced look.

Happy layered pattern mixing! x
