Mint Green and Cobalt Blue.  A soft pastel shade and a bold bright hue that don’t seem like they should be paired together, but actually compliment each other quite nicely.  A combination that I’ve worn in the past (in the posts Panama and Pick-Me-Up), and will definitely wear again in the future.  Have you paired these two pretty colors together?  Do you have any unusual yet complimentary color pairings that you love to wear?

The super sweet Amy (from Coffee Beans and Bobby Pins) and I partnered today to showcase one of Spring 2013’s hottest trends: bold stripes.  When I heard this was a “trend” for Spring, my first thought was that stripes are always in style, sort of like animal prints and denim.  Maybe I’m a little slow on the uptake, but I finally realized that “trendy” just means that designers and retailers have decided to focus on it this particular season and that it will be readily available in stores.  Zara has definitely committed to both bold stripes and black & white this Spring.  They have so much of it currently in store, including this great skirt I picked up a few weeks ago.  I thought it would be fun to pair this bold print with a matching top for a look that almost appears like a dress.

 

Coincidentally, Amy and I went for similar looks but she paired her fabulous striped shorts with a bright pop of one of my favourite colours, cobalt blue.  Please visit Amy’s blog, Coffee Beans and Bobby Pins, to check out more photos and details of her pretty look.
