An Imperfect Print Mix
Sometimes, you're just in a hurry. I know that they say that you're not supposed to take blog photos when you're in a hurry, instead focusing on creating professional-quality masterpieces so beautiful that they would make Mario Testino slit his wrists in a fit of jealousy, but then, this is not that kind of blog. Seeing as though I get to make the rules, this is a blog where imperfection (if not outright calamity) is not only allowed, it is openly encouraged. This is a blog where you don't always brush your hair or put on makeup for a photo simply because you are too lazy. This is a blog where sometimes you stayed on the tennis court a bit longer than you thought you were going to because the second set ran long, and you had to rush home and get dressed in a hurry because it looks like rain, and you may or may not have showered. It's an imperfect world.
And what better way to celebrate our imperfections than with a little subtle summer print mixing? (Sorry everyone….sorry……cheesiest segue ever.) Print mixing with pastels somehow takes on a different, less aggressive vibe than when using black and white or strong colour prints. Sure, I suppose the same rules apply, but somehow it just seems a little more lighthearted when you are using summer pastels. Maybe it's because you have to get right up close to see what's going on.
