The key to mixing prints is choosing two that have at least one color in common.

If you stick to this rule when mixing stripes, florals, polkadots and any type of animal print, you can’t go wrong!

If you’re familiar with my personal style, you know I’m not one to shy away from color or prints, and as a proud Californian, I love my denim. Like most people, many aspects of my style- aside from Pinterest inspiration and chic uptown glamour, is influenced by where I live.

This month’s post in collaboration with Old Navy is all about state and city-centric style, showcasing a look that represents the style personality of your hometown. Unconventional color pairings, prints and anything goes is something I appreciate about the Bay Area and San Francisco specifically, and I think this unexpected mix of stripes and leopard print paired with casual denim perfectly sums up the fashion scene in the Bay Area: casual simplicity coupled with an eccentric personality.
