Personal Style: Gingham & Animal Print

That's right, I said gingham AND animal print.  Fashion is fun, so why not take a risk! For my outfit of the day, I took a look which COULD have been expensive, but I put together for a fraction of the price.

Gingham is so hot right now, thanks to stores like J. Crew, but as we all know, their clothing can be extremely expensive.  This is when Old Navy steps in. I scored my top for 1/4 of the price of the J.Crew!  Observe:

This is the J.Crew version for $78.00.  You can find it HERE.


And this is the Old Navy version!






I added the animal print belt for a little bit of pizzazz and the gold jewelry tied everything together.  Pattern mixing can be tricky, but most of the time it will pay off.  It can be a lot less scary when you start small.  You don't have to pair full on stripes with polka dots right away!
