You know those days when you're running out the door and need to look good in a flash? Your husband is waiting outside in the car and you're rushing because your destination is only 20 miles away but it's Friday afternoon and in Southern California that means its going to take twice the time to get there because of traffic? Well, today is that day. My favorite thing to do in these types of scenarios is do hair and makeup quick and grab a pretty dress. I love this one because its dual patterned and so comfy! The reason why the dual pattern works is because the patterns are from the same color family. It gives off the put together vibe while being effortless and laid back. Add a cute pair of gladiators and tote + gold accessories and you're good to go.

Have you worn a dual patterned outfit? For future reference, make sure you choose patterns that compliment each other. Another tip: It is so much easier to match if both of the patterns are in the same color family. Make sure to tag me in your photos on Insta (@forallthingspretty). I'd love to see what you come up with!
