Stripes + Flowers

It appears that the mixing prints trend is holding steady for Fall 2012.  I’m glad because print mixing has  provided new opportunities for expanding my current wardrobe.

I’ve owned the brocade, floral skirt featured in today’s post for several years.  It has always posed a styling challenge though.  I mean, what does one wear with a skirt made of an intricately woven shiny fabric with a tonal floral design?  Today, the answer is surely stripes!
