Mis-Matched

Anthropolgie Dress, Nine West Shoes, Vintage Bag, JCrew and Assorted Bracelets, Cartier Watch, Oliver Peoples Sunnies

A few years ago, everything I wore needed to match.  However, in recent years I’ve taken a different approach to matching and my style.  Not all of the colors need to match exactly, as long as they flow together, why not? Like with the dress I’m wearing and my clutch,  I would have never imagined wearing these two together.  I would have felt a black clutch would be a better fit.  Although, a black clutch would be a nice safe choice, I love how the pink pops against the blue dress.   Am I the only one that is starting to throwing matchy matchy mantra out the window and mixing colors?

    Also how is living in Dubai?? My boyfriend visited there earlier this year and he fell in love with the place! I’ve never thought that I could ever leave the country to live in another, although it sounds like a fun adventure :) I think you’re so brave to do so!!
