Yesterday I posted an outfit that mixed prints and confessed that I rarely mix prints, I usually pair a print with a solid. Today I confess the same with color. When faced with a color I usually match it with a neutral or match the color somewhere else in my outfit. There's something about the whole thing that is reassuring and calming to me. I know, I know, strange. Obviously, that look works, but I also recognize that it's safe.
Today, I tried pairing today's sale item, a fun blue 1960s schoolgirl skirt by Summit of Boston with a bit more color. I confess, I did some matching (scope out a close up on that belt and bag and you'll see), but overall I tried to mix it up some. How do you deal with color?
