Mixing Prints

I've been trying really hard to do relevant fall-inspired posts… but y'all, IT'S SO HOT HERE in Singapore. This is as close as I've gotten so far; I'm wearing a cardigan! Does that count as fall-esque?! I barely have closed-toed shoes over here but less fall boots (don't worry, they are tucked safely away at my parents' place in the US). 

Either way, I think this outfit is so fun. I especially love the crop top. It actually used to be part of a dress but the dress wasn't that flattering so snip snip! I couldn't get rid of it because of the awesome print and the adorable trim. Not to mention the cross on the back and the way it kind of shimmies when I move; a great, fun summer top. 

The skirt I got at my thrift store here. I am absolutely in lurrrrrrve with the cut of the skirt - it's almost a maxi but instead of a circle skirt flaring out from the waist, it hugs my hips; very flattering I think. And the print is so weird; it borders on ugly-cute and I love it. I think I wear this skirt at least once a week to work. 

Last thing to pull it all together is my mesh oversized cardigan. Here's another crop top look with this cardigan. We went to go see Interstellar (did not expect that to be such an emotional roller coaster) in theaters and then to the Singapore Art Museum - two places that are notorious for blasting the AC. 

Besides these two outfits being my favorite things: crop tops and maxi skirts, I also love the colors and play with patterns! I was skeptical at first but pairing them together really grew on me. I figured I followed the rule, so I'm okay. As long as the two patterns share the same color palette, it should work. I think I'm in the clear!

  1. Cute outfit! What did you think of Interstellar?

    Where is this thrift shop? It seems like they keep really short hours.

  2. Really cute! I love pairing different patterns and these blend nicely because of the reds. I'm super jealous of the hot weather over there. This week Korea suddenly entered winter and I cant even handle it. It takes like 45 minutes to get dressed with all these layers!
