Today I was in the mood for a spot of print-clashing. I like the way that clashed prints look on other people, but I have to admit that I’m always a bit tentative about pulling the look off myself. So far the best approach I’ve found is to use prints that have a similar colour scheme and to break up the look with a block-coloured garment so it doesn’t look too busy.
This morning I decided to mix polka dots with gingham checks for a fun and pretty look.
I am wearing:
– Red polka dot blouse from Target
– Purple Jay Jays skinny jeans (thrifted)
– Gingham heels from Scooter
– Ruby ring (inherited from my Great Aunt Anne)
– Dr Who pendant from Le Fancy Geek Boutique.
These jeans are my all-time favourite jeans. I bought a hot pink pair from Jay Jays years ago and they are a great fit. They are a lighter-weight denim with a good amount of stretch and they come in a huge range of colours. I now own four pairs in all different colours, because I try to snap them up whenever I see a pair. They generally retail for about $20 a pair, but this dark purple pair was just $4 from the thrift store.
I’m also wearing my lovely Dr Who necklace that was a gift from my awesome mate Nina. Nina runs a sensational blog called Le Fancy Geek where she writes about her nerdy loves, her many trips to Disneyland and her adorable dog Rory. Nina also has a shop called Le Fancy Geek Boutique which specializes in fan jewellery. She’s constantly adding new designs to the store so it’s definitely worth dropping in to see what she’s got on offer.
All in all I’m very happy with how my print-clashing outfit turned out. It’s not too in-your-face but it’s got the perfect amount of colour and whimsy to put a spring in my step.
What are you wearing today?
