Pattern Mixer

11 May 2011


















Oh man... I told you guys I was obsessed with midi/maxi skirts these
days! I was actually going to put this post up next week to space out
all of the maxi's, but when a gal finds something she loves, ya gotta
just stick with it! This is the skirt that I wore in that fashion show the
other day, and after prancing around in it all night I just had to have it.
I am usually not a tribal print type of girl, but it's vintage and its maxi
so duh, hello, I was reeled in. Paired the skirt with a striped top because
another obsession of mine is mixing prints. Crazy fun way to get dressed
in the morning. Oh yes, and these photos were taking right outside
of my favorite coffee shop EVER where they serve Morning Bird blend
coffee and cookies the size of your face. Definitely one of my favorite
places in town and the outside seating seriously looks like something
straight out of a Free People catalog.

In other news, The Dalai Lama is coming to speak at my school TODAY!!
I am so excited and totally ready to be astonished by his words of wisdom.
This is such an amazing opportunity and I will be sure to fill you all in on it!

Hope you all have a lovely day!

You totally work it in maxi skirts, girl! You look beautiful in the print.
That's so exicting, I saw that Dalai Lama was speaking there today (which is only less then a 2 hour drive from where I'm at) but alas, I have work. Hope you have a wondrous time hearing what he has to say!
