Mixing Patterns- Camo & Stripes

{Leggings: F21} {Shoes: Express Similar} {Watch: Limited (not online) LOVE}
{Bracelet: Express Leopard Version} {Sweater: old Save} {Vest: JCP Cute}

I LOVE laid back lazy weekends--and these days they have been few and far between. This weekend though was heaven--no real plans--filled with movies, blogging, puppies, and time with my hubs. I even put my lackluster cooking skills to work and baked a funfetti gooey bar cake thing--ha and it was delicious! (I know--I am as shocked as you are ha)

This outfit is perfect for weekends like this! I love that mixing patterns of the camo and stripes gives a really funky look--but it was totally comfy and perfect for lounging while eating pizza and watching Bad Grandpa. Also, I am slightly obsessed with these red flats from Express--the bows on them make it perfection!

What are your thoughts on mixing patterns? LOVE? or too far out?

My mother may or may not have asked me if I got dressed in the dark--in the words of Mr. Will Smith--parents just don't understand :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
