This week I’ve been getting in touch with my girly side and dreaming of all of those soft sweet shades of green, pink and yellow. I also have to say that the texture of lace is really driving me crazy… in a good way. [Note to self… – I’m definitely going to have to look into this].
Anyhow, if I had my pick this week, I’d definitely add these pretty pieces to my closet. Elegant and conservative but with a bit of cheek in the skirt (not bum cheek) and a tad of edge in the wedge booties. My first instinct was to pair a more quirky earring with this look like little gold bird studs but in the end I felt like there was enough quirk over all that you could go with a more classic enamel stud that is a bit different but doesn’t draw too much attention from the other pieces.

What I think is really interesting and attractive in this outfit is the variety of textures at play. There’s the lace in the skirt, the ruffles/bow in the top and the leather in the bag. What also makes it interesting are the colours at work here….sage green, blush pink, mustard yellow, grey.. that’s quite a mix.but don’t be afraid.

It’s really about matching tone here. The shades are different but the loudness of the colours are fairly similar, which makes them work well together.
