mixing patterns with patterns is the best.

it's probably one of my favorite things to do. whether it be wearing, decorating, or design, i love finding unconventional ways to make two prints that shouldn't go together, fit like a glove. 

one of my biggest tips for making pattern mixing work, is to focus on similar colors. if the colors go, then the patterns will follow suit. 

take this beautiful wallpaper (ummmmmm can we talk about how awesome this wall is!?) from a Miss Crofton lookbook. i see yellow, a muted green, and a black foundation -- it goes together beautifully! add in a model wearing a lace bralette (in black) with a pair of silk pants with the same golden yellow hue, and the most subtle leopard pattern, and it's a perfect match.

i thought this image looked lovely paired with a spray of mustard wildflowers from designlovefest
