Pink, Polka Dots and Panache

I’m all about pairing opposites, whether it’s in love, a meal (salad + cupcake, anyone?) or what I wear for work.

I recently fell in love with a daring pair of leather culottes by Raoul, a young brand doing incredible things with lines and textures. The culottes, a high-waisted number, let you move around effortlessly around the office without fuss and still remain a level of effortless chic.

To balance the strong textures of the lamb leather, I paired it with a tucked in polka dot sequined blouse and a roomy pink wool blazer. To complete the look, I grabbed an my black Smythe Panama tote and stepped into my cherished Gucci patent heels before heading out the door.

Oh, dear. We’re only a little over a month into 2015 and this may already be my favorite outfit yet. I just can’t get over how playful the pink and polka dots look against a leather palette. ‘Til next time, Ambitionistas!
