color.blocking

I am most definitely and without a doubt a color blocking newbie. I'm obsessed with this trend though - when it is done well. It is a perfect way to wear solids and only solids and make an outfit interesting and bright. My wardrobe, admittedly, needs to be expanded a bit before I attempt this ever so fabulous trend again.

I did a post recently just on color blocking and how fashion guru's such as Kendi and Sydney are fabulous at making the blocking of color look like pure perfection. You can go here and see what I mean.

For my outfit, on the last day of our StyleBusters, I chose a red shirt and paired it with a scarf of mine from Old Navy tied around my waist. I would have to say that red and pink are two of my favorite colors that are blocked alongside seafoam green and blue.

While I did red and pink Jessica took her very own spin on color blocking so be sure to go take a sneak peek at her over here.

I hope you all have enjoyed our StyleBusters challenge because I know that we have. I personally have been trouble dressing myself the past few days with no such guidelines. I stand in front of my closet for minutes and get nothing. School kinda restricts me because it's getting cold and I don't dare put on my cute shoes and murder my feet like that. Make sure you put some color blocking in your life and shake it up.
