OOTD-A Wild Card Pairing





This outfit started out rather boring in its idea phase. I was going to pair my new orange skirt with a gray blazer, gray top and gray oxfords. Can you tell how much I love gray right now? But as I was going through my closet I thought why don't I try something else and so I went all out and did some color-blocking. I can't tell you whether orange and pink really go together, but the pairing made me quite happy. Don't you love accidentally wonderful outfits?

**I didn't realize until I was re-flipping through the latest Instyle magazine that I must have been subconsciously channeling an article I saw. Hot pink and orange are a wild card pairing and what a pair they make! If you love hot pink or want to try some color, here are a few ideas of who's bff with pink:


Outfit Details:
Gray tweed blazer and oxfords- Forever 21 (blazer available here, similar shoes here)
Pink top- thrifted (top in similar color here, more casual version here)
Orange skirt- Simply Vera Vera Wang (similar skirt here and here)
Crystal necklace and pink patent belt- J. Crew (similar necklace here and here)(similar belt here
Gray handbag- Botkier "Bryant" (sister bag here, smaller crossbody here)

  12. I love grey, especially for interior design. When I was looking for a sofa, I was set on getting one in grey but ended up with brown instead. I kind of regret being impatient and not waiting the extra time for grey. I also look forward to painting some walls grey in the future too.
