Recently I’ve been drawn to simpler, more minimalistic (for me, at least) clothing combinations, mostly due a relative new obsession with denim. Barley a week has gone by when I haven’t reached for these Paige Denim jeans – they’re just so comfortable, fit like a dream and go with everything I own.
At the weekend I wanted to wear them for an afternoon stroll to the Castro but, tired of feeling too casual, I decided to throw my love of prints into the mix as well. This outfit strikes a balance for me between all-out print and colour clashing and the ‘easier’ dressing I’ve favoured of late.
The yellow floral print top and kimono are both old season finds from Zara, while the burnt orange silk headscarf is one of the many I’ve inherited over the years from Grandma Ship-Shape. I’ve been experimenting with tying it in different ways recently and if you’re after an easy headscarf tutorial, Keiko Lynn has a great one here.
I finished the look with a slick of Topshop’s Rio Rio on the lips, in an attempt to bring it all together – what do you think? Are you a fan of print clashing?
