{ mixology }


My style is forever evolving, but in a way this outfit felt like a throwback to what I was wearing back when this blog first began. I guess big gold jewelry, paired with possibly-too-many prints (never!) is always going to be my safe place.

It started with this padlock-spots-plus-snakeskin-print Sachin + Babi blouse, which encouraged me to keep piling on the patterns. Polka dots and leopard have always seemed like neutrals to me, and it just made sense to finish it all off with richly colored leather accessories, to highlight the blouse’s singular, emerald leather stripe.

{ Tiffany aviators, Zara coat (previously seen HERE and HERE // similar style available HERE), necklace and blouse courtesy of Sachin + Babi, Michael Kors watch, vintage skirt (also worn HERE and HERE // similar style available HERE), Rebecca Minkoff bag, Bottega Veneta boots }

    I've loved every piece you've worn by Sachi & Babi, and the prints you've layered together seem to harmonize so well its fantastic!

    I love that your style is completely and utterly your own. It's so wonderful and inspiring – although I've discovered so many blogs in the past two years that I've been reading them (and yours was one of the first I found), the glamourai continues to be one of my favourites!

    Have a great week!

    Beautiful blouse! I don't normally do prints but have ventured into them after being inspired by bloggers including you :) I tried out 2 prints together on my blog http://www.thankfifi.com today and would love to know what you think! No printed trousers for me just yet though but maybe one day – I did see a paw print pair I quite admired…

    Love the pattern mixology here. I've been on the hunt for a leopard print coat, and this one is very lovely.

    You really are something, the polka dots and leopard print prints mashed together has started its own evolution. I love how it depends on one another to stay perfect.

    I love all these patterns together. I love this coat so much. I almost bought it last year at zara and decided not to bc I still hadn't lost all my baby weight and it is cut so slim…I instantly regretted it and I still think about it (non-buyer's remorse, I guess)…STILL! I love it and it looks amazing on you every time you wear it.
