Unexpected colour pairing for fall

For this post, I'm linking up with Something Old Meets Something New's Best Form of Flattery series. Amanda's outfit got me thinking about mixing Easter egg pastels with traditional fall colours, like burgundy. I came up with this look, which I personally concluded was just okay. On the other hand, it's a nice change from all the skirts and dresses I've been posting lately and I'm already thinking of other potential colour combinations.


I'm loving the buttoned-up-all-the-way look that's everywhere in the blogosphere these days, but I bought this shirt at H&M circa 2008 and it wasn't designed to be worn that way. Has anyone else encountered this?







Shirt - H&M
Sweater - Swapped (Joe Fresh)
Jeans - Superblue 
Necklace - Sportsgirl
Boots - Geox
Jacket - Danier Leather
Bag - Gifted from Ghana
Ring - Reitman's

  1. These colors definitely work together. It's fun to experiment with different color combos, because you never know how they will turn out :)
    Love your boots too!

  3. Great outfit! You could always use a little safety pin to snug the top part of the shirt shut... or use a pretty broach and it would both keep the shirt shut and add a pretty accent.

  10. Kat, I LOVE this!!! Thanks so much for linking-up, I think your outfit is great! The color combo is unexpected (and that was the same thing I thought when I put my outfit together) but I really like them! This season is all about color and I love pushing my comfort zone :)
    I also like your layers - and I think it's still ok that the button-up doesn't go all the way up (becase, to be honest, I unbuttoned mine after about an hour, haha!)
    Hope to see you next week for the 2nd edition!!!

  12. Necklaces over shirts are so fun! I have a shirt that was never meant to be worn all the way up too :) which is a little sad, but there are other trends aplenty! x
