it’s time to square off against those monday blues. but it just got a little easier by adding shocking pink into the mix sprinkled with a generous dose of leopard print. does it get any better?! navy and pink are one of my all-time favorite color combos so this day is off and running in style. since the ootd (and it’s lively palette) takes center stage you’ll notice the accessories are kept to a bare minimum. even the handbag is small and subdued. this gives balance to the outfit – i call this style symmetry. if one element is bold then another should be quiet. think of it as the yin and yang of style.

but where’s that cup of coffee? my outfit might be ready to take the day by storm but this girl is still revving up. fill ‘er up please.

happy monday!

    • it’s crazy but it’s true. fashion inspires home design and vice versa! can’t wait to see a photo of that portfolio.

    Love the style symmetry! The colors look great together and the leopard print really brings it all together 🙂

    Navy, a pop of pink, and touches of leopard are excellent together. I wore a very similar mix up to see my son and daughter-in-law in Boston last spring. And it was very comfortable, too. Tres elegante.

    • i’ve been on a classic color combo kick lately! navy and pink have to be in my top three favorites. and perfect for a summer outfit.
