Mixed Prints: Floral and Stripes!!

By now you have realized, I have a passion for prints.  I LOVE IT!  Of course there are rules to it, but who cares around that book.  The one thing I always keep in mind when mixing prints is to have one primary color on both prints.  It's my personal rule.   This outfit was my intro to Spring!  A lovely floral blazer from JCP for $15 and stripe sheer shirt also JCP for $2---ARE YOU CHECKING JCP CLEARANCE RACKS!!! I think I hit the jackpot recently there.  This outfit has two primary colors: black and white, which means you can go crazy in the closet mixing this print and add a pop of color for personal style and your done. As you can see I cause my own dilemma by mixing it with my vintage mixed print blazer,  I had a hard time with this outfit, I played with the Stripes on Stripes fire but Floral on Stripes won the work day.
