Look of the Day: Spring Patterns

Pattern Mixing, seattle, street style, fleur d'elise, neon, clutch, tribal
This past weekend, Seattle was blessed with sunny, fair weather. It felt like Spring, despite the chilly breeze. I tried to dress like the wind didn't exist and ended up freezing by the evening on both Friday and Saturday. It's hard not to get overly exited by sun in March. Thank goodness Spring is only a week away!

I took these photos out back, but the very bright photos were shot on the roof again. It was too sunny up there so it was hard to get good shots where my face wasn't all squished up and grumpy-looking. The reflective coating on the roof makes it very warm, as well as bright, so it always feels like summer up there! I'm still experimenting, but I think the roof is going to be a good place to shoot photos on darker days.

My mom made this amazing bracelet for me last year. The beetle is an old clasp of some sort, which she attached to a piece of velvet. I love bugs, especially beetles, so I'm pretty crazy about this bracelet!

I'm so glad I bought this blazer. A blazer is one of those items that every closet needs. It goes with almost everything; even this colorful, pattern-saturated outfit!

This blue blazer really is a great staple piece. It's so cute with your striped top. I really like the fun mix of prints in this outfit too. And, of course, your glasses are adorable. I wish I had a pair like yours!

I'm in love with the pattern and cut of that skirt. Great photos too. You should keep experimenting with the roof. Go up there about 45 minutes before sunset. The light will be so warm and when facing the sun it makes your skin look amazing. If you shoot with the sun behind you, you can get some radical lens flare too!!! (Depending on the camera you're working with). I love playing around at different times of the day with different light! I've been wanting to take some night shots with a flash lately too!
