Blocks of Color





Top (Green Envelope find at TJMaxx); Leggings (Old Navy); Hat (Marshalls);
Shoes (Nine West); Jennifer Hoffman Photography

Color blocking is such a fun way of playing with color and creating vibrant looks - and this top makes it so mindless that I couldn't resist. Although color blocking really is easy - simply add one colored bottom to another colored top (choose colors that are either next to or opposite each other on the color wheel while keeping accessories neutral). Or you can take the lazy gal's way out and get a piece that does all of the work for you :)

Yay for colorblocking. I am just starting to get into this trend. Previously, I enjoyed looking at it on other people, but I really like wearing it lately.

I adore the top and think you paired your shoes and hat perfectly. They don't distract from the vivid colors in the top.

I love color-blocked garments that do the work for me! I haven't been wearing bold colors are much as I should be, but when I start up again, I'll go for something like this. Thanks for stopping by my piece of the blogosphere!

You are the queen of colour-blocking --and those leggings are super chic! I've yet to try this trend, as I'm having difficulty finding pieces I like in colours that match.

Thank you for visiting my blog. ♥
