Jewel Colours

Jewel colours

I like happy accidents (for want of a better phrase!) when it comes to getting dressed in the morning.

Quite often I am so bleary-eyed, I surprise myself that I look even half coordinated when I register what I’m wearing later in the day. So I think I was just about awake enough to purposely put together the blues and reds for this outfit, but the purple coat was the nearest coat to hand as I was rushing out the door. And I love the purple with the blue and red: all lovely, yummy rich jewel colours. As I said – a happy accident.

I’ve had a lot of comments about the boots on previous posts – they’re still available to buy in a few sizes, and at a reduced price! Go get ’em while you still can, people!

Wishing you all a very happy week ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yesterday I wore the opposite- I had the blue pants and the burgundy coat and thought it looked pretty good. I am glad to have you backing me up!

    Everything all at about the same color saturation! Great lesson from you, again. Thank you! You remind me that we can wear almost any colors together if one of the common elements is degree of saturation.
    And then you manage to look amazing in your choices … how great is that?
