The Ladybug’s mixed color palette

The Ladybug Chronicles in Caramel (3)

Another winter outfit with the colors of autumn…am I completely inverting seasons or is it just the weather confusing our minds?

Sometimes I like to push a bit my style, matching different colors and playing with apparently unlinked color palettes like a few weeks ago, when I paired caramel, camel, teal and pale blue in a funny outfit that attracted all eyes on me (I know, people are shocked quite easily lately…where is your imagination guys?!)

It all started with this new caramel corduroy culottes from Zara that I wanted so much because I loved the color and the 70s style. I had to buy them online because I couldn’t find them in shop and I immediately wore them with my caramel wool headband from Dixie that matched them perfectly!

In the middle I added a touch of pale blue with this Cos sweater (with a huge bow in the back) and my long camel coat from Diffusione Tessile.

As it didn’t seem enough I decided to add teal tights (I always buy colored tights but I barely use them!), 60s inspired brown boots from Marella, vintage silver loop earrings and of course brown lipstick!

The Ladybug’s Winter 2011/12 Smart Shopping Find #2: The Stefanel Camel Coat

Do you remember my post about The Perfect Coat? I was still looking for a prefect coat!
A few weeks after I found this beautiful coat at Stefanel, but it was a bit too expensive for me at the time- so I decided to wait for the winter sales….
I found it at 30% off and I was so pleased about my new coat… perfect color, very soft and warm, round collar, lovely shape!
 
I love the camel and black pairing, that’s why I’m wearing it here with a Zara black leggings, a H&M black turtle neck sweater and Topshop black ankle boots.

I added my adored vintage fur hat and a vintage animal envelope clutch from Lady Jane Vintage!
