Defying the Rules (Print on Print)
Most of us might have read a lot of things on how to do a print on print number. And from a perspective of someone who loves to be on the safe side, I might as well drop the idea of being seen in one than to look weird if I do it wrong. But that was the old me. Currently, as long as I find the items appealing and somehow feel that "connection" in them, I would not hesitate to wear them in public whatever rules or guideline I might break. Just like the pieces I wore in this set of photos.

Ring P129.00 - Penshoppe
Shoes P599.75 - Chelsea (SM Dept. Store)
This was the blouse that I mentioned in this post. I bought it along with this printed skirt when my mother and I shopped for my siblings' uniforms and some school supplies. I find it very office appropriate that even if I had not seen that skirt that day, I would still find myself buying it.
As for the printed skirt, I was first looking at the other color available, which is black and white (same with the blouse). Like I said before, there were online articles I've read regarding guidelines for mixing prints, and one of those is matching different prints with the same color groups. But then I thought that I want one of the two items to stand out, hence I picked the peach colored one. And to highlight the color of the skirt more, I chose just neutral colors for my accessories (white) and shoes (gray). I don't know if you guys find the look interesting and catchy but that's how I felt when I wore this! This is an outfit I definitely feel proud when I am wearing it.
As for the question I left from my post yesterday, does the blouse still look like worn by kids? It is just a matter of styling right? What do you think?*wink*
