Since I was going to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to mix prints. Two of my favorite prints are leopard and floral. My method of choosing this look is as follows: I chose the leopard dress to be the star of the show and the floral clutch as my sidekick. For mixing prints, it is important to create a balance. You want to keep the pair looking harmonious and not competing for the attention. The floral accent softened the fierceness of the leopard print, to give off a more romantic vibe. I finished my look with emerald drop earrings and a gold strap sandal. I’m really happy with the results:
- Michael by Michael Kors Leopard Print Jersey Stretch Maxi Dress; $150 (I paid $49.99 at Marshalls!) Similar Style at Net-A-Porter.com
- Cavalcanti Genuine Leather Floral Clutch; $49.99 at Marshalls, available on ebay.com

How do you think I pulled it off? Do you like to mix prints?
