Prints on Prints on Prints

Blouse:Equipment (also seen here), Pants:Zara
Shoes:BCBG (seen here), Bag:Celine, Earrings:Givenchy
Sunglasses:Kate Spade, Necklace:F21

Let me tell you something about this outfit, my family were not fans! I have my little sis Tino saying,”Are you wearing that on the blog!?”, my brother thinking there is too much going on and my other sister Ndaka asking, “What kind on pants are those, do they start at the hips?” lol. It was fun to hear them go on and on about it. I love mixing prints and colors, I actually had an option of wearing this with black heels to ease up on the prints but I thought these snakeskin heels go perfectly with the rest of the outfit.

Normally, with this kind of bad buzz I’d have changed into a different outfit or not featured this here, but I felt really good and wore it with my head up high. I want know what you guys think? Do you agree with my brother and sisters?

    You look stunning! You’re the Pro not your sis or your bro. The pants are a dream and the shirt goes amazingly with them.

    Don’t listen to them (although they sound sweet for even caring)! You look fabulous! I LOVE the mixing of prints going on, and I think it looks so chic! You look gorgeous, as always!

    I love that you take some style risks and have fun! I personally think these pants are amazing…and would never have thought of pairing them with that top. They’d be cute with a smaller polka dot top too.

    outfit is loud and cool, just the way summer should be 🙂 I love your pink lipstick.

    on this occasion, i think you should have listened to them…there is too much going on with this outfit…and it looks like the wearer quickly rushed at the first set of clothes she saw to go out

    but because its you, you are forgiven…but please dont do this next time

      For you my love, I won’t do this again 😛

    If you’re comfortable in it and like it, then YOU wear it! That’s all that matters at the end of the day. You can pull the look off, not many can.

    Um I have to disagree with them! This is one of my favorite outfits…..ever! The pattern mixing is perfection! I’ve found that usually when my family hates an outfit that its one of my favorite ones haha!

    I disagree with your brother and sisters for one reason. Everything looks perfect together and i like the fact you decided to have the snakeskin heels coz they totally complete your outfit.

    To be honest, I have to agree with your family. Of all the mix and matches that you have, this is the one I like the least as I think there’s too much going on.
