In Other Words… Stationery, Travel, and All Else that Matters
I am usually very conservative when it comes to patterns. I buy patterned pieces then wear them with a solid color: paisley skirt with a beige blouse, animal print top with skinny jeans. Basically I follow the rule of wearing patterns with solids to keep the balance.
Recently, there seems to be a craze for patterns on patterns – plaid with lace or polka dots with stripes. Honestly, this is terrifying to me. Patterns on patterns!? What about the balance!?
I am still a bit conservative while mixing prints of clothing. Heck, I am still getting used to full patterned dresses leaving no space for solids to tone things down. I will definitely need to do more wardrobe tests before I head out in my floral and gingham!
But that is clothing…
Now to the stationery…
I have recently been making stationery with patterns layered on top of patterns… and things have worked out beautifully!
Here are some samples for you to swoon over:
‘Thanks’ and ‘Happy Birthday’ Prints
