Paisley Play



Another trend we have been seeing this summer is a repeat of the same pattern, i.e. a polka dot top with polka dot shorts. I decided to try a paisley pattern since we will be seeing a lot of paisley this fall. I chose a blouse and pencil skirt that had the exact same pattern.

Because there was so much pattern dominance, I added simple, neutral accessories to downplay the pattern and break up the appearance of having a dress on. To be honest, I am not sure I really like this look although I am obviously in love with this pattern by J. Crew. 

What do you think of this paisley pattern double play? (say that 10 times fast!)
