i took two pieces that were pale, muted colors and paired them with darker accessories. i am a lover of structured, slim bottoms with flowy, looser tops. i think it is a slimming look and the top hides most of the things we are trying not to show off. cuffing the pants and rolling the sleeves gives it a laid back look and the purple booties help to dress it up just a little.
