Finding the right shoe to go with an outfit has never been a problem for me, especially since I adopted the philosophy, Buy the shoes and the outfit will come (it was much more difficult finding shoes to match the outfit!)! But finding the outfit, or rather assembling the wardrobe to go with the fabulous shoes has been more challenging than my simple mantra would lead one to believe. That is until now.
After thumbing through a past issue of InStyle magazine, I came across an article referencing the magazine's annual edition on color; Neutral Know-How: five inserts, each containing a different neutral color (navy, khaki, ivory, olive and grey) were juxtapose with four complimentary colors (and all with a designer look to illustrate the color combinations) creating five distinct and exciting color palettes. For my first go-round, I paired Olive green shorts with a petal pink blouse and topped it off with a red jacket. The shoes were an easy choice, these dark green Bottos, from Nine West. What do you think?
Baci a tutti!
