Look for Less: Print-Mixed


I came across this image on Pinterest the other day and absolutely fell in love with the fun & girly mix of prints.  So, I decided to put together an affordable version using similar pieces that are all under $45.  The earthy accessories add richness & help keep it from looking too sweet...which makes this the perfect summer outfit for work (with nude heels) or for weekend (with ankle-strap flats).  


J. Crew Painter Stripe Tee (on sale + extra 25% off w/code SUMMER) // Macy's Haskell Necklace
Calvin Klein Pencil Skirt (on sale + extra 30% off w/code FFJUNE2013) // Nordstrom Faux Leather Satchel

Your version is so much cuter! 1- because its more affordable and 2- the skirt in the image looks like linen, such a wrinkly mess! ;) Great finds girl.

This is one of my favorite trends right now. I like to give it a kick of leopard sometimes.

This skirt is so cute! I literally can't get enough floral right now. My new obsession are these "Into You" wedges from CL by Laundry.
