Splatter Paint

5th May 2015

IMG_6124 I’m kind of crazy about the perfect mix of pattern, so much so that I kind of get slightly depressed overtime I start to step into a look without a the slightest hint of pattern play… and since I’m no fun when I’m depressed, I guess I’ll just have to keep mixing patters in pretty much every look – I hope you don’t mind 🙂IMG_6100


If mixing prints scares the crap out of you, you’re totally not alone! I shared the easiest way to mix pattern in this post here, but am about to drop another layer of print on print knowledge on you, so buckle up! Okay, the key to mastering this trend is soon easy you’re gonna freak – all you have to do is keep it black & white! I know, I know, I’m usually the color queen, but there’s nothing wrong with going all B&W every so often …. but don’t worry, I totally won’t make a habit out of it!IMG_6113IMG_6047Anyways, black & white patterns play together perfectly and you don’t have to worry about clashing colors or looking crazy because B&W always looks so seamless and chic! Today I’m wearing not one, not two but three black & white prints, but the mix of structured stripes and abstract paint totally compliment each other without over-doing it! To really push the envelope, I paired a third splatter painted print in the form of crazy cute keds.IMG_6126IMG_6096I keep the accessories simple since I was already doing a lot with this look, but I couldn’t help making a little bit of a statement with this darling Daniel Wellington watch. I’m not much of a watch gal, but became totally smitten with this classic and timeless (sorry, I had to) piece! Daniel Wellington was nice enough to give me a promo code to share, so if you’re interested in picking one up skip on over to DanielWellington.com and use the code COLORMECOURTNEY to receive 15% off – promo ends May 15th!IMG_6146IMG_6101

    You got me! I’m *slightly* intimidated by print mixing. This is fabulous, and the red lip is the perfect pop against black and white.
