Pattern Frenzy

It has been too long since our last group photo shoot! Although the time frame was short and the day gusty, we tackled it like the champs we are. A couple hours was most definitely not enough time to take the shots, catch up on each others' lives, and lament about the disappointing menu change at one of our once favourite haunts. In this post, we are putting the focus on prints and sharing our interpretation on how to mix and match them.

Cabin Fever

What could be more Canadian than checks and plaid? Maple syrup and poutine maybe. But Stephanie keeps the look fresh with the checks on her coat rather than on her button-up shirt. Because they're similar in geometry, the prints aren't duelling each other for attention. And would you get a look at that adorable elephant necklace?!

Winter Blues

There's nothing sad about these winter blues! With a variety of different prints and textures going on - shimmery stripes, florals, and herringbone - Sarah opts for a monochromatic colour palette. A delicate pendant necklace and turquoise ring are the perfect finishing touches for a breezy stroll in balmy weather. 

The Midas Touch 

It was the weekend of the Lunar New Year, so Ann got decked out in traditional red and gold. A flaming red shirt, in an obscure print, is enough to stand on its own, but one must cover the lower extremities when out in public. As such, solid colours went towards the jacket, skirt, and bag to let the textures do the talking. 

There really shouldn't be any "rules" governing which prints go with what. Guidelines, perhaps. What matters most is if it brings you joy!
