Gilded Estates Gone Dotty

gilded polka dots

The purply pinkly hue of these shoes and bag match so perfectly well together that I can't seem to pair one without the other. It's way too easy for my matchy-obsessed self. And of course I always seem to want to wear these pieces when I reach for this Anthro skirt - which I also wear all the time paired with black and white, so this whole color combo has been repeated many a time already (like here and here). Hey, if it works, why fight it, right?

Are there particular items in your wardrobe that you feel like need to go together?

  2. I really like the polka dots with the skirt. Great idea. I always find myself matching accessories. It is like i can't NOT do it. :)

    How do you like Brahmin's quality? I have been interested in one, but have not seen them in person yet.

    1. I have two Brahmin bags and I highly recommend them. They're structured so they hold their shape well - plus I see then often on Ebay so you can likely find the one you like for a steal!

    1. Me too - it's like fuchsia but a bit more purply.

  6. You know what, I find myself doing the same, combining items that I already know work together to create new outfits. At first it felt like I was cheating, and then I thought, you know what? What it actually *means* is that I'm developing a style of my own. When you can create all these combos that remind you of each other, isn't that just a positive sign that you know exactly what your style is?

    Anyway, I love this outfit, and I squee every time you use those shoes with that bag, because they really are perfection together! :)

  8. That skirt is gorgeous, and I always love pink and blue together :)

    It's good to have some outfit "formulas" to fall back on some days :)

  11. Beautiful skirt. I like how the pattern matches up at the waistband.

  12. These colors are gorgeous together--I'd pair them up all the time too! And yes, actually what I wore today was one of those kinds of pairings: a navy blue striped top that I always want to wear my red wedges with.

  13. I go crazy over those shoes every time you wear them--the color and bow are just so cute! Love them with your blue skirt too :)

  14. I kid you not, but I have the same top and skirt and I thought about pairing them together last week! I think that just proves that they were meant to go together. You look great Lisa and I love the pink accents! I usually wear this skirt with a pop of yellow, but I am going to have to give pink a try!

  15. I am the same way with a lot of my clothes. I always love seeing this skirt on you...so much that I bought one off ebay last year. And I have only worn it with black and white as well. Thanks for the style inspiration - I need to copy this outfit.

    1. I think you look fab in this skirt - the shade of blue with the bold print is too perfect, imo!

  16. Oh yes, as much as I try not to be matchy matchy, there are always those things that are just too perfect to ignore. Plus the mismatch of the prints offsets it anyway, I think.

    1. For some reason, when I wear brown/tan leather, I've got to match it or it drives me nuts!
