vintage and new

Some of my favorite pieces are ones that were handed down to me. This colorful mohair sweater belonged to my aunt, who was kind enough to give it to me! One can never go wrong with a great vintage hand-me-down! I love the mix of prints and texture all within this one piece. The color combination is also really interesting to me--it makes the sweater great for a cool spring day or a chilly fall afternoon. Since this sweater is so eye-catching, I decided that the rest of my outfit should be simple. 

I'm wearing another pair of Uniqlo easy leggings that I own. I absolutely love them. I wanted to play with the geometric prints in the sweater, so the black and white polka dotted pants were the perfect compliment. When mixing two prints, keep it simple, which is the hardest part about this current trend.

I decided to finish my look, keeping simplicity in mind, with an easy suede flat and a subtle statement necklace.
