Lookbook: Butterfly in the sky

IMG_0424IMG_0419IMG_0443IMG_0446IMG_0468
Pattern on pattern is such a fun trend to play with.  I never would have thought to wear these two prints together before but I looked through my closet to mix patterns on purpose and just thought "why not?" with these two and it worked!  The dress is really cute but it's a tank dress which Seattle weather is not quite ready for so layering the blouse over the dress was very weather appropriate.  I just took the belt from the dress and belted it over the blouse so it all matched.  The dress has ruffles in front so it's cute to see the ruffles poking out the bottom of the blouse.  And you'll be seeing a lot of my yellow shoes because sunny days require sunny shoes!

**Did you guess that the title is from one of my favorite childhood shows?  Please tell me you watched Reading Rainbow too! :) **

Forever21 Bow Print Chiffon Top
Forever 21 has some great printed blouses now to easily try out this trend.  I love tops like this with the big print and the lace texture mixed in.  Or a smaller print like this Rosy Chiffon Top or even a striped top would be cute over a floral print dress. 

Forever21 Bow Front Floral Dress
Contrast your prints with a different size print but in the same color scheme.  My black and white top was easier to mix with any other colors but the light blue top paired over this brighter blue dress would be a fantastic mix.  Or you could do a dress with a smaller print pattern or bright floral print.  The possibilities are endless but the key is to stay with matching colors.
Cole Haan Air Talia Open Toe Sling
Cute summer shoes!  Or these ones with a bow! Ooh these Michael Kors Wedges are so cute (expensive but cute!)

Zoya Marley and Zoya Dove
You can't really see my nail polish but I'm wearing these two which I loved this combo.  Dove is the perfect light gray!

  14. Thanks for posting that Zoya polish-I've been looking for a good dove grey polish! I originally bought one from American Apparel, but their polish is terrible, it chips almost instantly.
