Tomato Violet


This has to be one of my favorite color combinations:



I think it makes sense because the two pieces have similar tones.  But, let’s be honest, I totally could have made that up. 

I paired my tomato-red polka-dot blouse (vintage, thrifted) with a violet skirt (thrifted and hemmed) and added black accents by way of a skinny belt (Steve Madden via Ross) and mini-wedges (Seychelles).  And then I added a yellow accent in the form of a bracelet (Mississippi Street Fair vendor) because that also makes sense to me.

Happy Tuesday, Everyone!

  2. You look like a bowl of sorbet, in the very best of ways! The yellow pop on your wrist is the perfect dash of extra color, too. A true color-blocking pro!

  3. Eek, so cute! It's a fav blend of mine too...those bright shades close together in the colour family just make each other shine even brighter. Plus the style of that top really looks amazing with a pencil skirt. Love it!

  6. Loooooove iiiiiiiit~ I love unconventional color pairings...color is so much easier to me than patterns. I am making notes in my head, although I think I need precisely 100% more violet garments than I have now in order to try this.

  11. I like it! Of course, I'm being a weirdo and wanting to cut and hem the sleeves off that shirt because I still can't understand how sleeves don't bother people. I have the weirdest phobias! *closet consists of 80% sleeveless shirts/dresses*

  13. I love this color combo - have worn a similar combo before. One of my faces. I seriously love the dotted blouse. You always find the best thrifts, lady! Seriously. I love that dress you wore...was it last week? The purple printed one you couldn't wait to wear. Genius!

  19. GREAT color combo! Color blocking will always be my favorite fashion thing. I like the touch of yellow from the bracelet, too.
