Mixed Prints: Chevron Peplum & Dotted Geo Prints

Hey all! Mixing prints can sometimes be intimidating. Few things to help with that and still be able to incorporate into your outfits would be to stick with one or two underlying colors and keep the prints small. I’ve done mixed prints before with most recently here, here and also played with color prints here. Since I’ve started to exploring mixing prints, I’ve been doing it non-stop and loving it.

So for my outfit post today, I was drawn to the top below because 1. it has chevron mixed with horizontal stripes and 2. has peplum. The two combo just makes the top unique, to say the least, and when I saw these pants, I wanted to pair the two together.

Unfortunately, although I love the prints on these pants, just a fair warning that the construction of them is pretty poor. That’s one of the downside of shopping online is that you don’t actually get to see the material in person. However, since the return policy is just much better online, they are going back unfortunately. Ah well – still on a hunt for a similar pair and if you girls run into any, please let me know!

Also I have been loving this layered trench since I bought it back in Dec (what can I say — was already counting till Spring then). I had an outfit pairing several months back that I never posted, but still wanted to incorporate it into an outfit post. I have ordered several items from Piperlime before with most of them going back due to sizing — even an XS was too big on me there. However, the sizing of this trench fit me pretty nicely with the exception of the sleeves, but I can definitely live with that. It’s my perfect go-to outerwear on days when temps were warmer in the winter and now that spring is here, I’ll definitely be reaching for it more.
