F That: Matching—how to mix prints like a boss

Chanel 2021/2022

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about being “proper,” and how much I hate the idea. Yet, I’m unconsciously drawn to it. I want people to like me. I don’t want to offend people. But I want to not care too much if I accidentally do. Unless I was really a jerk which I’d never want.

I want my daughter to feel proud of me when I pick her up at school. Like, “yeah, that’s my mom, bitches!” And how can that happen if I show up wearing a floral top with plaid pants? But then I want her to be proud of me for not giving a shit about the status quo. But I don’t want to make her too uncomfortable but I want to push her comfort level but I don’t want to completely repulse her do you see my dilemma?

Also I really don’t want her to swear but what is the harm, really?

Ultimately, I want to not care. And mostly I don’t, but sometimes I do.

So here I have collected lots of excuses for you to NOT CARE ABOUT MATCHING. What a waste of time and mental energy, truly.

Some say there are some rules about mixing prints. Like choose a smaller print to mix with a larger one, and choose ones with some color similarities. But maybe just F all that and mismatch to your heart’s content. If Chanel has given its stamp of approval, surely it must be O.K.
