Two Blocks

This month’s Everybody Everywear is color blocking. It’s kind of a non-event. Simply,

1. Choose a top and bottom (or, like me, a top over a dress).
2. Ensure neither are a neutral (black, white, brown, khaki, denim, etc)
3. Check that they are different colors and...

voila, blocks of color.


Shirt, New York & Co. Dress, Richard Chai for Target. Bag, Nine West. Shoes, Fioni. Earrings, vintage. Bracelets, Tala’s House of Treasures, thrifted, and Garden of the Gods gift shop.

Actually, I’ve oversimplified the color blocking process. I forgot the step where I have to fight my urge to use a patterned piece instead of a solid.

Question: is it color blocking if there are only two blocks?

Yes?

Purple is such a great color for red heads but I must confess to missing your fabo pattern-mixing :)

I totally agree that color-blocking was a bit of a no brainer. Maybe next month there will have to be something crazy- maybe a "big hat" month, or a vacation wear or something more interesting.

I love that look of the shirt over a dress which I copied yesterday.
Once the 31 for 31 is over I will try my hand at the colour blocking - those colours suit you perfectly.

Yup, *yawn* to colour-blocking. Come on, it's not that difficult to mix colours!

This is a nice simple outfit for you. I love the red tassel earrings!
