Dress to match my new tote

I am so excited to use my new J. Crew Tillary tote in canvas. Most of my other bags are neutral-colored, beige, brown, black, grey. I do have a shocking pink bag which I love from years ago. Now with this multi-colored tote, I need to think of ways to dress in order to match it.


Trying to keep my outfit simple so it won't be too overwhelming.

I am playing it safe by keeping it to mostly navy.

    1. before I was skeptical of mixing patterns, thinking it may be too " crowded". But now I think I can mix them moderately. Thanks!

  3. Stripes & Polka dots!! Fun!... You could even throw on a cute red necklace to bring in the red. :)

    1. that's a good idea to throw in a red necklace. I have one red necklace but that is too bold for this look. Will have to look for one which is more subtle. Thanks for the suggestion!
