In addition to really enjoying mixing shades of a particular color palette, I love mixing patterns within the same color palette, especially stripes, polka dots, and other geometrically influenced looks. This Ben Sherman camisole has the same dark navy as the striped tee shirt, and I like just the hint of the square pattern peeking through at the neckline.
Goldenrod and caramel layered bakelite bangles; these bracelets are such a staple in the summer and winter months, as they look amazing with black or white monochromatic looks. Here, they complement the bold gold of my skirt, as well as subtly mimic the geometry of the patterns in my tops.
Navy tights and my favorite oxford lace-up heels.
Golden tear drop necklace; I love the weight to this piece and the brassy tenor of the gold.
A navy rain jacket, with golden accents and red lining along the collar and sleeves; it hits below the knee, ever so barely, and exudes a very formal, dressy appearance. I found this jacket for under 20$, and with its perfect integration of tailored elements, it has quickly become one of my favorite pieces in my closet.
