Peplum and Pattern Mixing

We had a mini cold front come through last week, but now I think the warm weather is here to stay.  It's definitely warm enough now to break out the shorts.  I went a little crazy with the pattern mixing in this outfit: striped shorts, floral top and leopard purse.  It's cool how it can all come together and create a cohesive outfit.  I've been playing around with pairing different patterns together lately.  It's fun to push the envelope and see which ones you can successfully combine.

I'm happy that peplum is still popular.  The look is so flattering for any body type!  I feel like it is going to become one of those classic looks that is around for a long time.

What I'm Wearing
