Paisley and Camel

Pin It
One of the items on my Spring/Summer wishlist is “something paisley”. I will share my list once completed. Finding the right paisley print is hard, finding a paisley item that fits is even harder. Lucky for me, I stumbled upon this J.Crew perfect shirt at the factory store a few weeks ago and fell in love. This shirt runs smaller than typical J.Crew shirts. The print is understated enough for every day wear. Paisley is a fun and busy pattern that adds vivid interest to an outfit. However, if you are going to wear paisley, make it the only pattern in your outfit. In this outfit, I paired it with a solid skirt for work. On the weekend, I can see myself pairing with shirt with a pair of white skinny jeans for a chic spring look.

What I am wearing:
Shirt: J.Crew factory perfect shirt (buy non-outlet version)
Skirt: H&M - size 2 (buy similar)
Shoes: Steve Madden Ulltra blush patent
Watch: Michael Kors 5128 in rose gold

Readers, what do you think of paisley prints? Would you wear it?

Love this look! so elegant!


I don't own any paisley prints but this look suit you very well. Glad to see you pair it with just solid color since the print is pretty already. I just notice your hair has gotten really long! :)


Love the paisley print! I'm on the hunt for a shirt myself since I own too many stripes and solids and don't really look good in most floral prints.

The paisley print is very print. I love how you kept the outfit simple.


That print is beautiful. Is that black/white or black/taupe? Love simple print and your simple outfit!

I personally love paisley prints but I think the colours in the print are really important. I like that yours are neutral and blend together :)
On another note your hair is getting super long Sydney, I'm jealous!

I really like the pattern on your shirt!


Wow, this outfit is very flattering on you! Great find! I love paisley and floral prints but it's not for everyone...

Great find on the paisley shirt! I do like all the colors - they all go well together.

I am typically not a fan of prints, but I LOVE this shirt on you! Great choice.

really cute :)! i saw this at the outlet and was tempted.. i ended buying the neon yellow cardigan instead .. but i might have to make another trip back! :)it would look super cute with some white cropped denim too!


I would definitely wear paisley. Your outfit is very cool. The camel color just makes the paisley pop even more.

I never really thought of paisley as a pattern I would wear but after seeing it on you, I might have to give it a shot. Thanks Sydney!
