Wardrobe Wednesday// Pattern Mixing + Exciting News

Mixing patterns is definitely a current trend. I love the look. 
But to be honest I’ve pinned more outfits with pattern mixing than I’ve worn. 
I’ve put together quite a few looks but go back and forth if they look ok or not. 
Pattern mixing can be hard. 
There is a fine line between hitting the nail on the head or looking like you got dressed in the dark. 
I hope I don’t look like I got dressed in the dark!:)

So, ready for my EXCITING NEWS!?
I WAS ACCEPTED INTO THE BYU 
MASTERS OF SPEECH LANGUAGE PATHOLOGY PROGRAM!!!!!!
I did it. I can’t believe it. It has seemed like a far off dream for a long time. 
 I’m going to a graduate program that I used to think I could never get into. 
I’m so excited. A little nervous. And a little sad (because I start 2 days after graduation-no break for me). 
But mainly crazy excited. 
Just had to tell you guys!!
