Daily: Blocked...in Color

Some things happen as a coincidence. For instance, check out Taylor’s post yesterday. Little did I know that she was doing a post on color blocking as the same day that I was trying out the trend for the first time, and we even blocked the same colors in opposite pieces. Here’s the breakdown:

Blazer: Goodwill
Maxi Dress: Goodwill
Tank (underneath): Gap
Sandals: Old Navy
Clutch: Goodwill
Ring: Charming Charlie
Nail Polish: Rimmel’s Sunset Orange 

When my friend Anna called me to let me know she had found an orange blazer at Goodwill and that I needed to have it, I knew immediately that I wanted to colorblock it with something pink. I had a different shirt in mind but yesterday just seemed like a maxi dress day. 

Colorblocking seems a little daunting at first, but if you take your cue from Gucci and Jil Sander, it’ll be hard to go wrong. The bright orange and muted pink in my outfit are perfect for the warm, spring weather that is slowly but surely creeping up on us. Who knows? Perhaps this will be a repeat outfit for this weekend’s Memorial Day celebrations.
