Playing with color

| 3 Comments

As I was getting dressed this morning, I was thinking about color. I thrifted this skirt a few weeks ago, and I like it a lot, but I find the lavender and yellow color palette really challenging. I don't generally do pastels, or light colors in general, and I'm never quite sure how to mix them in on the rare occasion I do find a piece I like in that color range. I've tried the skirt on with black on top, and with white, and neither of those options thrilled me.

So, this morning, I decided to step outside my comfort zone a little bit and try the pastel skirt with a bright, but also unexpected for me, color on top. After trying a couple of things, I decided I liked this bright coral t-shirt best. There isn't, as far as I know, a color wheel explanation for the combination of lavender and coral, but they're really working for me. I added a green stone necklace and metallic shoes and was done!
