One of the daily challenges in the #iwillwearwhatilike campaign that I'm running on Instagram was to break the rule that dictates that an outfit should not consist of more than three colours. As you can probably imagine that was an easy rule for me to break - I wear many colours at once a lot.
To be honest this outfit was created simply by wearing all my favourite pieces (as far colour was concerned) in one go and hoping that they worked together. My favourite lilac skirt; my new favourite orange sandals; a new favourite (and sooo cheap in the sale) laser-cut peach bag; my favourite cobalt tank; my new favourite pink and orange mirrored sunglasses. I can't quite decide if my polka dot scarf from What Lizzy Loves Boutique is pink or lilac like the skirt, but it definitely tones in beautifully and adds a splash of pattern.
So remember - the only rule you have to follow is to take no notice of the rules. Dressing up should be about having fun, and if you are wearing more than three colours in your outfit or you are clashing patterns then the world isn't exactly going to come to a crashing end, is it...?
