I swear I mix patterns with every other outfit I wear. Stripes and florals are becoming a bit of a classic I think; it seems to be the go-to pattern mixing mix of most bloggers, and you know what they say – if it ain’t broke…!

This is also the debut [on the blog] of the monogram necklace I got for my birthday from Mr. Summers. I’d wanted the real deal for quite a while and I was sooooo excited to finally get one of my own. I kinda went all-out on the gold bling – necklace, bracelets, watch, rings, nail polish… too much?!!

Happy Thursday, folks!

    Holy moly! I can not come visit your page without audibly ooohing and ahhing. I LOVE your style- you make the stripes and floral look fresh, not a whiff of blogger cliche! I am still blog-crushing on you, hard, girlie. HHAAAAAARRRRD!

    I love the pattern and color mixing and the colors goes well together with the sky too, well done! The clogs and the assecories are great too!

    I'm getting such a blogger crush on you, Lambchop! I love the fresh silhouette on one of my fave combos- florals and stripes. And your hair and sunnies are aces!

    I know you will love your necklace. I know I love mine. I have worn it so much that some of the gold has rubbed off the back of it. It is just a classic piece that works with anything. I love your pattern mixing and especially this one. Very pretty! Your nails look fab too.

    I really love this jacket and it mixes perfect with the stripes! You can do so much with this little jacket…great piece! Have a fun week!

    Your "classic" pattern mix is so beautiful!The pink sweater is really nice, and those shoes are great! And they're from New Look! Your necklace, and other the other gold-bits, nails included, are wonderful! I still haven't managed to put on my gold nail foil… Maybe for Visible Monday?

    That kimono jacket is exquisite, Catherine! The lines are so soft and feminine. I think you're right, stripes and florals is a classic go-to. It's an easy one to balance and this is a great example of styling it well. Have a great weekend!!! ~Sarah

    Loving your mix patterns so very much, dear Catherine.

    You have such amazing instincts when it comes to styling. You never seem to put a foot wrong. I either hit it, or completely miss. This week I had one outfit that was the clown that escaped from the madhouse!!

      Oh, I've had those outfits too, Tallulah!!! I can usually think of some sort of fancy dress theme I'm going with every day :)))

      Thanks sweetie x

    Catherine, your beauty is other-worldly in these incredible photographs.
    Your accessories make this outfit for me – hairstyle, glasses, and not-too-much-at-all (just saturated!) gold.
    Completely gorgeous post!

      Thanks Jenn – we had a tiny window of opportunity to shoot these while the sun was on me AND the dark clouds in the distance… doesn't happen very often, but they are so dramatic, aren't they…? x

  25. 13 September 2012 / 12:51 pm

    I'm really loving this particular mix! The floral and stripes look very harmonious.

  26. 13 September 2012 / 12:27 pm
