pattern play

Let's face it, patterns can be so joyful. The array of colors, whimsical tones, and the execution of some is so unique creating so many possibilities.  The energy of mixing patterns this season is addicting. Not only wearing mixed patterns but designing with them has been my new favorite hobby.
