Rose Garden

 Sometimes I find that printed pieces make a bigger statement than color blocking and solid layering. Less is always more when it comes to playing with prints and it can even be helpful in creating an effortless chic look.
Think about it- a solid colored dress can look gorgeous but will only get attention for a second or two. While wearing prints, it takes about 5 to 6 seconds to understand the design and can come off as stylish when you just pair it with white, or an accent color. Let the fabric do all the work and you can be lazy for the day.
Here I’ve matched this dusty pink loose knit tee to a Roses print trouser and played with white as the second accent color. While dark green would have also be a great combination for this piece, I found lighter tones more wearable for the current season.  Also, I love the contrast between the velvet black of these kitten heels against the pale color of the top. My trusty faux snakeskin clutch in pink and a basic black headband to pull away all the hair from my face in this dreadful  moist heat adds the finishing touches to this look.

Also, taking a moment to talk about this beautiful dusty pink tee from Hobbs, I’m obsessed with smart, casual tees and this one is a great work wear basic and I love how it can be worn in so many ways. I’m super excited to layer this with work shirts for winter.
