I’m not one to shy away from mixing prints. Especially floral prints and stripes. Florals and stripes are old hat by now to you, I’m sure, since I tend to do this favorite combination a lot. (I’m also foreshadowing another post for this week, so act surprised when I show up in a mixed print combo again, will ya?) In fact it’s hard to believe there was a time when we didn’t mix florals and stripes. I shudder to think about those dark days. But when thinking about mixing prints, that is my go-to, my print mixing crutch. I got to thinking about it and I needed to mix it up in the print matchmaking department. And then I found these two very different pieces that aren’t always in my wheelhouse of prints: bumble bees and polka dots. A pair rarely seen in nature. 
I picked these two pieces up at Ann Taylor, a store I favor when I need classic pieces or to look like the person who pays her bills on time. (Which I do, of course. Unless I forget.)  When I put these two prints together, they said it wouldn’t work but it did.  (Actually no one said it wouldn’t work. They are all very nice at Ann Taylor.)

  2. Hi Kendi! English nerd alert: I think you mean you “shudder” when you think about those dark days 🙂
