I was recently asked to participate in a side-by-side style challenge by Amanda and Jennie of 2 Girls in 2 CitiesSarah of The Kissing Booth was also asked to style a look.

The focus of the outfit we would be styling was "unexpected pairs". This can be interpreted in many different ways and as you can see above, we all went in our own direction with it. 

Here is my look:

When I think of unexpected pairs I think of patterns. Pattern mixing can be scary, epically when you choose two very different prints. I knew this was a time to just go for it and try to mix two pieces that I would never have thought to mix. 
I ended up with leopard print and a great green and navy geo print. Oddly enough, I think they pair quite nicely together!

I finished the look off by adding a chambray top under and a nude pump. A few simple gold jewelry pieces and a black and gold bag tied the look together and ta da, my "unexpected pairs" outfit.

What do you think? 
Would you have ever thought to pair these two items?
