Today's Everyday Fashion: Well That's Just Random

Today's look is a bit of a loose interpretation. For some reason this random combo popped into my head when I spotted the inspiration photo in a J.Crew catalog, so even though it wasn't a close match, I just rolled with it. Sometimes going with your first instinct pays off!

Why this works: Some outfits are all about matching your colors closely. Other outfits work because they pair completely random colors. In today's look. I mixed three totally different tones (pastels, brights, neutrals) into one random but polished look. Don't be afraid to try this at home. :-)
