Spring break is officially over, which means tomorrow it’s back to classes for me…fortunately I was able to get lots of good memories in before it ended! It was my birthday a couple weeks ago, and as a fun little birthday present to me, I bought myself these oversized round sunglasses off Amazon for only $9! I fell in love with them as soon as I saw them, and I know I’m going to have a lot of fun wearing them this spring and summer! They’re a perfect standout accessory to add a little flair to an outfit.
Driving back to college three or so hours away can be a struggle sometimes, so I came prepared with my sunnies, some snacks, and a comfy outfit. I started off with black ankle-length leggings and my favorite oversized black-and-white striped shirt. My trusty black peacoat and tan oxfords are staples, and my new favorite sunglasses are now too of course! I love this scarf, it’s a navy and maroon infinity scarf with flowers and swallows printed on it. For a closer look at the patterns, see the pictures below 🙂
This is a really easy way to mix patterns. Mixing larger prints with smaller ones is a way to mix patterns without the effect becoming overwhelming. And you don’t have to wear a patterned top with patterned pants-throwing a patterned pair of shoes, scarf, or bag is another great way to incorporate patterns into your outfits!
We were lucky enough to see a beautiful sunset on the way back-a lovely ending to a lovely day! I love road trips, even if they’re just shorter ones like this. What about you? Any tips for pattern mixing? Leave a comment and let me know! I hope you all have a lovely week 🙂
