Gracey Wears: Colorful Accessories

The prevailing thought when wearing a printed dress seems to be to pair it with neutral accessories.  I mean, that’s what I usually do.

Usually, but not today.  No, for this outfit, I decided to buck the system and wear colorful accessories:

I know, I know.  I’m taking a risk that might get the Accessories Police after me, but I think it was a risk worth taking.  Yes, a simple brown sandal and belt would have worked fine.  But, some days I don’t want fine, I want bright and complimentary and fun.

Which is what I consider the mix of blue suede sandals, a burgundy braided belt and turquoise earrings with a floral dress to be:

Bright and fun while still being work-appropriate and weather-appropriate.  And I don’t care who knows it.

So, if any drably accessorized undercover Accessories Police are reading this, I say: Hooray for fun!  Long live color!

    For me, dresses and skirts with colorful patterns are an excuse to break out my fun-colored cowboy boots– I have them in red, fuchsia, pink, green, and purple. Sometimes I’ll also wear multicolored scarves in my hair. I especially like this dress with print from a Japanese designer paired with my fuchsia cowboy boots ( http://sewingfaille.blogspot.com/2015/04/advance-7753-1950s-apron-dress-apron.html )

    HORRAY FOR FUN!!!! LONG LIVE COLOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Colored cowboy boots are the best because they’re doubly irreverent and therefore doubly great! I also love the idea of wearing a scarf in my hair; I’ll have to try that!

      And your “apron” dress is gorgeous!!!

    Oh I love this look especially the blue shoes against the red. I’m all for colour in big bursts- more is more I say! X

    Honestly? I’d say your look is pretty put together! If it were me, I’d be pairing that dress with a Kelly green belt and orange bag- so if the Fashion Police want someone to arrest, they’d have to go through me before they got anywhere near you, lol =D!

      Oh, this dress would be fabulous with Kelly green and orange. I’d love that!
