Rainforest Inspiration

I was looking at the new Spring collections today on M and Co and loved the Rainforest Collection it has elements which remind me of the greens from my Botanical Garden plus some Safari and Animal print items.
I have two Animal Print pieces in the Amber Glow Collection so could pull something similar together by pulling pieces out of both my my current wardrobes.
It was freezing here this morning so I don't think I am quite ready to transition to the Spring clothes just yet, but it sure is nice to look.

After my post about my good colours, I was putting clean laundry away and pulled several items from my wardrobe which just don't work for me. Mid grey pantsuit??? What was I thinking. Well I dare say I was thinking appropriate for work, but mid grey in horribly draining and wrong on me, so its gone off to a new life with someone else. I kept the dark charcoal grey pantsuit though as its almost black, and is wool and nicely cut. I paired it with a lime shirt and a funky necklace and it really came to life.

Perhaps the key with an easy to mix n match wardrobe is to be really true to your absolutely best colours and not be seduced by things which don't work. Lime was a brand new colour for me last summer and I really love how it works in with so much of what I already have. It really pops with so many of the basics adding life in particular to charcoal and navy.

Oooh, lovely pieces. The tee with the animal print is divine and perfect with the trousers. The pockets are a good accent for your TNT trousers I would think too.
