While at Fashion Night at the W Hotel I went shopping in the ultra chic W Boutique Store (On the 7th Floor), I bought a wonderful necklace and this awesome pair of Dolce Vita shorts. As soon I saw them I knew I could rock them with some tights and black boots and stripes. I saw the outfit flash in my head. The print is was really sucked me in to these gorgeous shorts. They are perfect staple for Late Winter, Spring and Summer!

I've seen a lot of mixing and matching whether it be florals and stripes, color blocking or mixing of patterns. I love stripes with just about anything, but this is my first attempt at mixing and matching. I loved how it turned out. Glad I also got to wear one of my new favorite pair of earrings from Mango. 

Mango has awesome jewelry and its really affordable. Who would have thunk it? I didn't even know they had an online store until I had to hunt these earrings down.

So what do you all think of mixing prints and patterns?
