Daily Look: Cream and Gleam



Sweater: Victoria's Secret // Shirt: J. Crew // Skirt, Earrings: Banana Republic // Shoes: Nine West // Watch: Asos // Sunglasses: via Marshall's // Lips: Revlon Certainly Red

Today I decided to mix patterns, which is always a bit of a dicey proposition. But I think (or at least hope) this works because all of the colors involved are so stunningly similar. A better name for this outfit might be Lauren reaches into her closet and puts on everything gold, brown, and/or cream. Who would have guessed that leopard print, tortoiseshell, sequins, and a geometric pattern could actually go well together?

Do you ever mix patterns? Or do they not play nicely with others?

I love mixing prints. Ever since I first started dressing myself, I have been really into it. I LOVE this look. You look so rich in all these gold tones.

Thanks Kate and Zoe. I'm glad it didn't end up looking too crazy.

Emy--I don't shop there often, but my mom got this as a present for me several years ago, and I still love it. Definitely one of the best gifts I've ever gotten.
