Secret Squirrel striped top (similar); Don't Ask Amanda skirt c/o General Pants; Wittner shoes; sunglasses c/o Oasap
This is probably the closest I've gotten so far to working the whole clashing patterns trend. Of course, stripes were a must (this top is easily the workhorse of my wardrobe). If there was ever a beginners guide to mixing patterns and prints, I'm sure 'start with stripes' would be right up there. This skirt happens to be one of the pieces I picked up on my recent tour of the new General Pants store at Carindale and I can quickly see it becoming a favourite this summer.
