Cobalt the Dots

On my experimental journey with color, I am finding that bright colors are not the enemy. Neither are patterns. For the longest time I told myself that I couldn't put these two things together because they would be too bold, too daring. Okay, I didn't really tell myself that, but for a while I was terrified that if I tried it someone would look at me and think what on earth was I wearing. I mean I see people mix color and pattern all the time in magazines, on the streets, that horrible reality TV show I will never admit that I watch and they look fine. The question was though, could I pull it off and feel good about wearing it. So I decided to take the plunge, an experimental quest to search my closet and put an outfit pairing together.

Inspiration:

 




Wow! Look at those polka dots pop!! This is looking convincing enough. With my closet inspirations I came up with an outfit that I think any color guru would approve.


My creation!! I love it! I have been trying to figure out how to wear this mustard skirt for a long time and I think the cobalt blue and polka dots is electrifying with it.


To mesh with the tank I paired my cobalt blue wedges from Payless. These are the same as my burgundy wedges from the "Brash" collection. They're so comfortable, I can walk in them all day.


This bag I absolutely adore. I found this classic shaped shoulder bag at my local Goodwill for around $5.00. I love that it is has a little pull which reminds me of a fancy door knocker and up close you can see a little engraved horse head on it. I call it my fancy equestrian bag. :)


So what do you think? Polka dots with pops of color? I think I am starting to feel this pattern and color thing. It just may rub off on me...or *POP* out on me. Tee-hee.
