I’m guest blogging on Trust Your Style today: Wear + live in your favorite color palettes.

Wear and live in your colors

I’ve been such a navel gazer lately…totally wrapped up in my patterns and prepping for Surtex. Mary Jo Matsumoto who I’ve done a ton of illustration for asked me to guest blog on Trust Your Style for a couple of days. So I’m quite happy to accept. I just did a post for her about wearing and living in your favorite color palettes. It’s a pastiche of fashion and home decor, two of my favorite types of design. I found great fashion and beauty items and matched them with corresponding palettes of home decor items. Check out Trust Your Style Thursday to find out where to get these stunningly colorful items. Those Nanette Lepore shoes are truly my dream come true. They’re probably not comfy though.

    I love this. On the wardrobe remix group this week, I came to the full-on realization that my house and my wardrobe match. It’s hilarious and awesome and not at all surprising to me!

    Isn’t that cool Kelly?! We all have a visceral response to colors and are each drawn to some more than others. The ones above are so stunning to me whereas someone else might love a deep maroon or forest green. I love that we can find a connection to the colors we love in so many facets of our lives. Trust Your Style did not post the links yet…so if it’s not up by tomorrow I’ll post them here.

    They are truly amazing in person too!! I did a lot of illustration for her so she gave me the red one. It’s like delectable candy….really cool…shiny and great silhouette. She has great earrings too.
