I'm not one to mix prints but on this particular day I decided to step out of my comfort zone and pair my water colour kimono (styled here, here, and here) with my pencil skirt (styled here) and I must say I love the results. A quick tip to mixing prints is to make sure the patterns have a similar colour in common and in this look the common colours are black, white and blue. Pairing contrasting colours in prints is another option too but if you want to play it safe you can always work with colours in the same pallet like I did here.

Skirt: New Look || Heels: Zara || Kimono: Cotton On || Purse: Thailand
