mixed patterns

i love using a print. whether with paper lining an envelope, or adding a pop of pattern to an outfit. somehow print just pulls everything together. anthropologie always has a side bar on their website that features their newest pieces, outfitted. (i actually always visit the site for outfit ideas when "i have nothing to wear") a new tab in the side bar is all about mixing prints. and what could be better than one print, but two? there are even some brief tips on how to pair prints. have a look for inspiration, then go to your closet, pull your prints and start pairing.
