This Isn't Pretty But It's What I Am Tonight

Have you ever put on a new outfit, took a look in the mirror and genuinely didn't know if it worked or not? 
I know it sounds ridiculous but every now and then I'll mix a couple different patterns and my eyes can't decide if it totally works or if it's a bust.

There are a lot of people out there that are afraid of wearing more than one pattern at a time. I don't do it often and when I do, it needs to be subtle(ish). I took a chance with this stripped, loose, boat neck shirt paired with a floral skater skirt. Personally, I think mixing only works when it's monochrome or in greyscale (like this one).

Another trick is to have a focal pattern and add the second one as an accent. 

And of course, what good is a summer outfit without cute ankle boots and a little fringe?!
