Print Me, Mix Me

Monday, May 10, 2010
Wore this for church on Sunday. I love all the mix of prints and colors. I'm not used to this much mixing but I'm definitely liking it. I want more prints!

By the time you read this, I will (hopefully) be in Hong Kong. Woo! I don't know how often I'll be posting outfit posts. Chase and I are basically roughing it out and backpacking it for three weeks. So my clothes are limited to 3 dresses, 1 pair of pants, 1 skirt, 1 pair of cargo shorts, 4 pairs of shoes, 1 hat, 1 scarf, 2 belts. That's all that "happened" to fit in my pack.. The husband has to take the rest of our essentials....hehe :)
