Pink Florals For Fall
I’m delighted those antiquated ideas about wearing certain colours in certain seasons are dead.
Whatever colour strikes your fancy is the one you should be wearing.
I know that pink florals do not exactly scream fall and I’m okay with that. It’s not fall yet and I’m not in a hurry to rush it in. Right behind fall is winter waiting in the wings and the longer I can hold that off the happier I will be.
This outfit came together serendipitously on its own.
As is often the case I found both the blouse and the jacket at the same thrift store on the same day. I looked at each of them on their own and wasn’t convinced I should buy them for my shop. It was only when I put them together that I knew I had something special. Of course the fact that I had other pieces in my wardrobe that worked perfectly was the cherry on top.
Print Matching Tip
The pinks in these prints aren’t the same hue so normally they shouldn’t work well together.
The trick? They both have the same colour of green…that is the linking element that makes them play so well together.
Did you notice all the different shades of pink?
In the past I wouldn’t have combined all of these but now I know better. Layers of different shades and hues of pink create visual texture and depth. The shirt and skirt are warm pinks (yellow orange undertones) and the jacket and the boots are cold pinks (blue undertones).
Both of these pieces can currently be found in my Etsy store.
I also bought these amazing Coach shoes and this Asian jacket together.
Two ideal pieces for the fall.
Can I tell you a little secret? The black midi dress I’m wearing with it is actually an elastic waist maxi skirt hiked up above my chest. #truestory
Our weather has taken a sudden turn and dropped about 20 degrees in the last two days. I don’t mind a break from the heat and humidity but I’d like summer to stick around a little longer.
Which outfit do you prefer? When you shop do you often buy pieces that go together?
