Orange + Blue ..... A Perfect Combo!

Hi Dears,

Sorry for the lack of post after Valentine's Day.  Have been busy "canvassing" different properties as we plan to buy an apartment for my in-laws so that they can live nearer to our home. 

Anyway, hope all of you had a great weekend!  Now another post about color blocks!  Last time I mentioned about how I love the color blocks  "Red + Camel/Beige"  and also "Yellow + Grey" , so now, it's time for "Orange + Blue/Navy" which I adore as well!

Without further ado.......

Bottom Layer: Navy blue turtle neck
Middle Layer: Mango rust/navy/orange/brown floral loose fit blouse
Top Layer: Rust orange cropped dolman sleeves knit top with asymmetrical hem

Zara brownish charcoal wool pants (worn folded)

Celine mini size "Luggage Envelope" tote in Wine color

Chloe khaki/natural teak brown suede lace-up wedge booties from Fall Winter 2010

Orange/Navy/Cream multicolor zig zag print scarf
Mango brown/orange marble effect pendant necklace with tassels
Gold flower earrings with dangling multicolor beads (bought from a local store)
  Tom Ford "Jaquelin" black sunglasses w/ orange rim and brown gradient lens
 I simply love the art of layering....this patterned scarf with the same tone as the overall ensemble made the whole outfit "livelier"..:D
 Peek-a-boo!  Yup, there is a long necklace hiding under the scarf...
 Amazingly, these warm and cool tones blend well together....
 And do try to mix prints with the same color tone to make your outfit more interesting and original.  
(I didn't buy the scarf & the blouse at the same time, but I'm surprised that they actually match!)
 Taking off the scarf....showing only the necklace and the layering technique...
 But I really prefer this outfit with the scarf...that's why I'm a "scarfaholic" because scarves add so much fun to outfits!!

Even the marble pendant and the braided chain of this Mango necklace matches the whole tone of the outfit.  Hehehehe!  That's the fun of accessorizing!

(chose an earrings with a flower to match the floral pattern of my blouse)
 And one of my recent new buys from the US December sale last year!  My Chloe wedge lace up booties!
 I missed out the non-suede version from 2009, so I'm happy to score this similar one last year.
 Very comfortable crazy about lace-up booties these days! LOL!
  Some more indoor pictures take for my new Chloe shoes...
 Love the knitted cuff around the ankles.....very cozy!
 With contrast laces and leather trim..

Dare to try Orange + Blue

Till my next post...probably will be about shoes. :D
