Mixed Prints

Hey guys! Happy Friday! Kevin, Molly and I are actually in Williamstown, Massachusetts for the weekend. It’s my niece Blake’s first birthday and we are here celebrating! It’s pretty cool because my sister’s daughter (a.k.a. my niece) was born just 10 days before Molly. So really we’re celebrating both of their first birthdays. Anyway, I don’t want to neglect my blog the whole time I’m on vacation so I wanted to make sure to get this post up!

I actually posted this floral dress a couple days ago with my Bachelorette blog. It’s simple but flattering and under $50! In today’s post I’m wearing it with a super fab, long white coat and a black and white striped purse. I’m wearing a size medium in the dress FYI (Medium is my normal size).

First let me talk about this killer purse. I always love when I see people wearing mixed prints, but I feel like wearing mixed prints is kind of hard to do. There is a fine line between looking super cool and just looking like you’re mismatched. I think a really safe way to do mixed prints is how I did them in today’s blog post. So instead of wearing a floral top and striped pants, which could come off as mismatched, I instead just made my purse a different print so it’s more subtle but still makes a big statement! So if you get this purse, you could pair it with any floral dress you have for the same effect. Both my purse and my pumps are from Sole Society. So you can get them both from the same place.

I talked about these shoes when I posted about this dress. But I have to just say again that they are my absolute favorite heels right now! I absolutely love the detail on them, and on top of them being really cute, they are also super comfortable. I feel like they are a great shoe to wear to summer weddings this wedding season. The closed toe makes them classy for a summer wedding and the block heel will keep you from sinking into the grass at any outdoor event. Seriously they are the PERFECT pump!

And finally I wore this absolutely fabulous white trench coat! This coat is definitely an investment piece but it is such a statement! It’s one of those pieces that everyone asks me about when I wear it. I almost got a size small based on the reviews, but in the end I decided to go with my normal size which is a medium. It fits great but I think I could’ve sized down and been OK too. And it’s long FYI! I’m 5’7″ and it just touches the ground in heels. You might need to get it hemmed if you are more petite.

Hope you guys LOVE how I mixed prints in this look! This outfit is one of my faves!!!! Have a great weekend everyone! Luv you guys!

  1. Hi Ali (or anyone who bought the shoes!),

    Are they true to size? I feel like I have had to size up a half size in Sole Society but never know for sure and hate having to mail things back.

    BTW Ali, you look great! Love your style!

  2. Saw you in the alley as we were going to Despos and you were leaving. We were talking to Dave. Thank God for Despos! Can’t get enough of that place! Ha!
