5.2.10

Yesterday I experimented with print-mixing for the first time, and had a great time doing it. I heard on the local morning news (clearly its important enough to make the news) that the easiest way to mix prints is to use a unifying color, and I found that black worked for my purpose. Perhaps this outfit is a little over the top for me, but I can just see myself wearing it on late spring picnics and pulling a sweater over it to sit by a fire in my backyard. Most people hate the dresses/skirts with sneakers combo, but I feel more comfortable stepping out of my box if I don't feel like I might break an ankle while doing it.
