I saw these shorts on the J.Crew Factory website and immediately knew I had to have them, the color and pattern just screams-- ME! I would by no means consider myself a pattern-mixing expert, the thought of it actually frightens me a little bit. But the way the J.Crew model was styled looked simple enough, a classic striped t-shirt paired with the loud pattern of the shorts is a good first step. I thought, maybe it's time to put my big girl pants on and see what all this pattern-mixing-business is about. I'm not sure why I was so afraid of it, I actually really like it.
