Less is More OOTD

See by Chloé Peter Pan Collar Dress (similar here, here, and cool top version here)
Tibi Ruffle Coat (similar here and here)
Nine West Mary Jane Pumps (similar here and here)

Although I am plagued by an addiction to prints, now and then I err on the simpler side of things. On a chilly day, I wore my thick wool peter pan collar baby dress from See by Chloé and opted to pair it with plain burgundy tights, wine colored pumps, and my gray Tibi coat. Although it was a very simply outfit, I was happy with the look. I carried an army green leather bag even though I wouldn't typically pair a shade from the red family with a shade from the green family. These more muted versions looked cool together, rather than Christmas-y.

There are a lot of textures and the shapes that make this outfit work. I love a good print, too, but I agree with you that sometimes almost monochromatic is as visually interesting and is a nice change.

Thank you Joelle!! I definitely think the details keep it interesting. I am just such a print junkie that it feels weird to see me in a solid.

Gee, thank you for the compliment! I love a peter pan collar. And I love all your dresses too!

Desert Flower, thank you so much! I love so many of your printed wardrobe pieces!
