March has now arrived and hopefully with its arrival, it brings better weather that is fit for Spring. A couple of weeks ago we had a brief spell of good weather, which explains the big smile on my face in the first picture. So, I thought I would sneak in some of my favourite key spring pieces that I have been dying to wear. For me, some of those key pieces was this light floral jacket and these super cool silver flats that I had purchased for cheap during a store closing sale. The outfit theme was floral and stripes. I added the tan bag by Mefie UK to complete the look. The most interesting thing about this outfit is the mixing of three distinct  patterns; the shirt, the jacket and the bag, which for some is easier said than done

Tip: If you want to mix patterns make sure you pull similar colours from each pattern. Example: the jacket and bag share yellows, greens, and oranges.

Hope you enjoy the outfit

 What do you think about stripes and florals? What are your thoughts on mixing patterns?
