Notting Hill Carnival, Europe’s biggest street festival, took place London over the bank holiday weekend. West London streets were filled with dancing performers in their bright and vivid costumes. Inspired by the experience I wanted to add some brightness and colour to my outfit as well.
I decided to go for some people quite unusual colour combination – sunset red and turquoise which is very cheerful and delightfully feminine mix. Turquoise is actually one of my favourite colours at the moment and I just can not get enough of it. Maybe I love this colour so much because it reminds me holidays, oceans and beaches and what can be better than that?!
I decided to combine my turquoise colour shoes, necklace and clutch bag with my sunset red dress to make a very bright and intense colour contrast. I have had this dress for a long time now. However inspite of being one of my favourite dresses I was getting bored of the same look. Switching shoes, jewelry, belts or even sunglasses is a clever way of getting an extra style mileage out of a dress. New accessories can make something you have already worn look new again. I used this idea for my outfit and I am very happy with results.
