My Style Challenge: Electric Prep

I managed to snag a kaleidoscope print pencil skirt nearly identical to a Zara one seen on more than a few fashion bloggers this spring (example one and example two)! But this left me with a bit of a quandary... how do I style it in a way that was unique?

I decided that instead of mixing prints (very tempting, I know!), I would try mixing "vibes" instead! Since the skirt had such a bold, electric tribal print, I contrasted it with a ladys who lunch style jacket and my vintage Chanel bag. The look ends up being polished and wacky fun at the same time!

I'm wearing: Jacket and skirt both from TopShop, pink H&M tee, vintage Chanel bag, Michael Michael Kors pumps, sunglasses from Urban Outfitters. Jewelry includes: Studs courtesy of South Moon Under,   necklace from Last Call, Mockingjay pin from eBay, vintage Gucci watch, wrap bracelet and pink chain bracelet from Juicy Couture, spike bracelet courtesy of Stella & Dot, cocktail ring from my mom, wedding band by Tina Tang.
