My fellow Shoe-A-Holics, I am back at it again, infusing color into my life! My foray into the world of color has generated quite a lot of feedback, and I'm glad to say, all favorable! Who knew it could be so easy?
In my last post on Adding a Little Color to my Life, I explored two color combinations I wouldn't ordinarily pair with Olive Green: Red and Petal Pink. Today, the bright, bold hues that InStyle matched with Navy in their Neutral Know-How color palette, instantly grabbed my attention; navy-colored capris, a turquoise bell-sleeve trench, a fuchsia v-neck top and an orange suede shopper. My neutral Carabella slides add a sexy subtlety to the ensemble without competing with it, which is perfect for this daytime look.
What I am starting to love about these cards is that I can add as much or as little of the accent colors to suit my taste. When I opted to leave the bag out of the look (below left), the outfit works just as well, as when I button up the trench and add the bag (below right). I'm still a little wary about trying four colors together, but the next time I try the Navy as my neutral, the kelly green is a must.
What do you think? Have you tried either of the color palettes I've posted? I'd love to hear from you!
Ciao a tutti!
