Preppy and Playful

Mixed patterns street style

I am tagging this look with the words preppy AND playful, because besides finding this combination preppy, I also find the proportions of this look a little hard to pull off, but I had fun daring myself and  wearing it. Since there is a lot going on with this shirt and the floral print of the skirt, I decided to wear a nude colored bag and shoes. I tried this look with flats in front of my mirror and I had to laugh at myself at how stumpy I looked, so I decided to go with my 4 inches heel wedges, which I believe was a smarter choice.

Yo he categorizado este conjunto con las palabras fresa y juguetón, porque además de encontrar esta combinación de muy buen gusto, también encuentro las proporciones de este conjunto un poco difícil de llevar, pero me he divertido luciéndolo. Dado que hay bastantes detalles en la camisa y en el estampado floral de la falda, me decidí a llevar una bolsa y zapatos de color carne. Tengo que confesarles que al principio me probé este conjunto con zapatillas y la verdad que terminé riéndome de mi misma, debido a la forma en que me hicieron ver…muy chaparra. Bueno, al final opté por ponerme esta cuñas de tacón de 4 pulgadas, que por cierto fue la decisión mas acertada.
