A vintage handbag is a marvelous traveller. With her dusty pleats and still working clasp, a chic bracelet handle carries me back to her first wearer’s energy, in the 1940’s. How did she waltz all over the world? In understated style. This post shows that a simple pairing lends effortless style to your daily wears. Lilac is the light tips of emerging iris bulb blooms, and black is the shadowy Earth below. Inspired by Nature and the Senses, XOXO ~Amor Milagre

Designer Tip of the Day: Simple Pairings
A pairing of 1-2 colours keeps an outfit chic and simple. Here, a pale silky lilac lace camisole and a dusty ribbed black crop trouser create texture contrast and complement one another softly. Delicate gold jewelry subtly smiles in the mirror of the hardware on a favourite vintage 1940’s handbag. This simple way of throwing together an ensemble is effortless to do and to perceive. Pair with espadrilles in a pale nude pink, a straw hat or black wool beret. Have a stroll about the gardens and wander through town, settling at a local cafe for hot chocolate and music. A gentle outfit helps a gently thoughtful day unfold.
