Look to Mother Nature. Because she know what she’s doing. And if a colour palette is good enough for her, then it’s good enough for me.
Let’s take the peacock feather for example. The forest green, the deep purple, the navy blue and, when the light hits it right, the splash of yellow. (The peacock headpiece, by the way, is one of two custom pieces made for me by Vancouver’s Alice Hart.)
Stripes, florals, miscellaneous geometric patterns — they all work together beautifully when Mama N picks the palette.
She makes the potentially disastrous practice of print-mixing as foolproof as can be.
In fact, I’d say she’s the best stylist a gal could ask for.
oh i love how you mix prints + colours together! daring & stylish!
happy april fools!
LOVE the way you paired this outfit!
Once again…another winning outfit. Learning so much from you and Liv
Janis — Thanks m’lady! Happy April Fools to you too. I feel like I should be running around pranking people instead of hanging out inside.
Danielle — Thanks lovely! I’ve got Mother Nature to thank for that.
Teresa — Thanks beautiful! You and Liv certainly are a stylish duo.
Hope to bump into you sometime again soon ;)
Very lovely :)
Love the mix of green and purple here! And I love peacock-anything!
I so adore you for this post, Kelsey! Mixing prints completely intimidates me; but you’ve made it seem so simple to do! :)
kudos lady to you on all the print mixing wizardry (or shall i say WRDZ-ry?). I have vowed to have more prints and bright colours in my closet so I’m keeping that in mind while i am shopping here in HK. so far no luck – hehe I’ve been sticking to my neutral palette of white, grey, black and navy. let’s see if tomorrow’s a better day.
great post Kelsey! although, I doubt I could ever mix and match prints as well as you do ;)
btw, I love the feather headpiece! it’s very you.
Very simple point, but really a good one. I absolutely love your outfit too!
