Nautical

Hey everyone! Back today with another post in a familiar pair of pants from last month's Anchors Aweigh! post. This time I went with a more casual but still preppy look, and went with a mint and navy combo with classic stripes to match my nautical pants. Unfortunately, I didn't get a good full body shot so I did the best I could by giving snippets of my outfit in segments. Since I do a lot of pattern mixing in my outfit posts, I guess a good tip on playing with patterns is to combine a bigger pattern with a smaller pattern. For example, if you're mixing florals and stripes, you wouldn't want to pair a smaller floral print with lots of thin stripes, or vice versa. In my pairing, the anchor print is quite small, so I went with stripes that were a bit thicker. I also love to top it off with a statement piece just to add a little bit of sparkle and dress up the look a little bit more :)

Thanks for reading, and don't forget to follow me via Instagram @refined_couture!! If you try out any pattern mixing in your ootd's, you can hashtag #refinedcoutureblog so I can check it out!
