How to Mix Prints: What to Wear to Olio Pizzeria

The Scene

The Peeper and I fell in love when we worked together five years ago.

Our boys began their own lawyer-meets-doctor love affair not soon thereafter.

 Mr. D and I were pretty heartbroken when one of our favorite couples moved to Santa Barbara two years ago.

But at least, now we have an excuse to go up to one of our favorite places on earth more often. This trip we stayed at the Fess Parker by the beach and hogged at Olio Pizzeria.

The Commentary

Pulled together this mixed prints outfit as an ode to all the gorgeousness that is Santa Barbara. Knew the colorful print of the tank would work well with the geometric shapes of the shorts. Mixed together the prints remind me of this season's prints at DVF which she mixed so artfully. The bold accessories really pull the whole things together. These new $24 sandals are my favorite thing on earth.

The blazer sophisticates everything up and also provides much needed coverage for my piggie arms. One of my favorite looks so far this summer. What do you think?

Gorgeous! And may I say that your hair looks amazing.

<3! You look fabulous! Sigh, I miss my collegiate stomping grounds.

Love the exuberance of this outfit, and I second ShoeZQ's comment - your hair looks lovely. I may have to venture out to the messy, understocked H&M in my area to look for those fab shoes.

Why must you always tease me with that MJ clutch??!! I so wish I had snagged one a few years ago when it was out. I still love it...sigh.

You look fab in your mixed prints!! I'm still trying to work my way into that trend.

Love those sandals and MBMJ clutch!

Love the outfit, thought I'm still *extremely* fearful of mixing prints. That gigantic clutch you've got is beautiful!

Katie Mac said...
