in living color

{Zara denim moto jacket (another great light option here!), J. Crew striped top, Gap pants (cool camo ones here too), Zara loafers (affordable studded options here), Bally purse, Ann Taylor cuff (super pretty option), scarf present from mom via Jerusalem!- makeup: lipstick Girl About Town by MAC, nail polish Milani- Yellow Whiz}

Is is spring yet? I keep thinking about vivid colors! I've never really been a "black is my favorite color" kind-of-gal, and under that same taken don't have many simple monotone staples- since I tend to veer towards the bright, the patterned and the different. You think this would make it difficult getting dressed up in the morning, but I tend to like mixing prints, and seeing what I could actually get away with in my ensemble. I don't have a method to my madness, I just mix until things feel right. For example in this outfit there are a lot of shades of blue, the black accessories ground the look, while the camouflage pants add the of-the-moment factor, and the brights in my makeup choices spice up the color palette. 

But enough about me, what are some of your favorite prints to mix?

  1. Love the bright lips with this outfit! You REALLY know how to mix your prints/patterns. I especially like the combo of the scarf and shirt. And those camo pants fit your amazingly! Great post!

    New follower here! Can't wait to see what else you have to bring. Now I'm going back and looking at your past posts! :)

  2. Your cuff is so bold, so chic.
    I am loving metallic with jewel-tones right now.
