Colette's Spring/Summer Palette Challenge

After reading Sarai's advice on how to put a mood board together, I took it upon myself to have a peek at what's left in my stash and see if there were any recurring themes. To my surprise I have a few pieces of fabric that feature the colour orange, which is not something I usually buy in rtw clothing. In fact the only two pieces of orange clothing I own are both tops, and both are leopard print!

So with this in mind I put together this -

I love the combination of orange and blue together, they suit each other so well. I also found after inspecting my wardrobe that I don't have a lot of yellow items of clothing either, so I've opted for a mustard colour in my palette.

To balance things out nicely I chose to incorporate khaki/tan/sand/beige whatever you want to call it?! I think this will work nicely with the other bold colours I've chosen.

Last but not least, we have burgundy. I love me some red, but as I've already got bright orange & golden yellow I figured having a darker red would make a change. I particularly like the idea of making some shorts in this colour.

I've also given myself the challenge of not buying any fabric with polka dots *gasp*, it's going to be hard but I need a break from seeing those dots under my machine foot!
