Victoria Day

There's something about mixed prints that is so appealing to me, I love the unexpectedness of pairing two seemingly opposite patterns together and having it just work for some reason. As mixed prints become ever more popular, there's something even more unexpected about wearing two pieces of the same print at once. For years we've been told not to dress too "matchy matchy" like our mothers and grandmothers did, but in the case of prints, matchy matchy may not be so bad!
I'm off to Niagara-on-the-Lake for an event with my family before heading to a fireworks show tonight all to celebrate the Victoria Day long weekend. I love having this time off and love even more that the weather is cooperating too... best weekend ever.

  7. You look amazing! This outfit looks incredible with the gradient going on in the middle. I've always rather loved looking matchy-matchy. I like to mix it up, but matching pieces in my outfit makes me really happy.

    Happy long weekend!
