Mixing Prints…

Top: J.Crew | Bottoms: J.Brand | Clutch: Clare Vivier | Heels: Shoe Mint c/o (similar here) | Sunglasses: Karen Walker | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelets: Stella and Dot c/o | Rings: By Boe | Lips: YSL Rouge Volupte #11
I think my all-time favorite prints to wear are stripes and leopard! Today, both prints are infused into one outfit. I chose a basic stripe with neutral colors so I could easily add in playful pops of color and a bold print to create interest. Here’s to breaking rules and making statements. Thanks for reading, xo!!

    Those neon heels are fabulous!

  47. I realized the other day that I’ve combined stripes and leopard quite a few times, and those are always some of my favorite outfits! I think it’s the preppy meets bad girl vibe that makes the mix so cool. Also, those are awesomely huge sunglasses!

  83. kbrown says:

    this is really cute- first, I’m fairly new to following your site. Where is this awesome pink wall you use as a backdrop? Are you in front of a restaurant or shop? Or just a random pink outdoor wall? It’s so amazing! Second, I love the use of print mixing on this post. Neon shoes, stripes, leopard- they compliment each other so well, yet I’d never think to put all these together! Great inspiration- @styleandtreats! if you want to check out fun food and fashion!

  84. Cutest outfit ever!!! LOVE!

  85. and that clutch is ah-mazing!

    Beautiful outfit. LOVE!!

In September of 2011 I created Pink Peonies as a place to document the things I loved. Since then, it has become a creative outlet where I share my personal style though daily outfits, beauty tips, home style and much more!

Ever since I was a little girl I've dreamed of creating my own line. After countless hours of working towards that dream, I've finally launched my first collection!

It's full of classic, feminine and romantic pieces that you'll keep in your closet for years to come and wear over and over again!
