Color Block Party

Color blocking is not a fashion trend for the faint of heart. Wearing multiple shades of blue, orange, and red (at the same time) screams "LOOK AT ME DAMMIT!" But for an overcast day like today, it's the only way to remind yourself that indeed, it is spring.

While I am both bold in appearance and opinion, my wardrobe would suggest something else. Until recently, I've been guilty of buying black, grey, and nude clothing in excess. So when I spotted this uber-mod mini skirt at Zara this weekend. I simply could not restrain myself. I could also not restrain myself from pairing it with this watermelon pink top. Et voila! Insta-color blocking.

{I even color block with my patio furniture}

I could have added a sweater or scarf in a complementary green or blue, but I opted for a woven belt with gold (duh!) embellishment. When color blocking, it's important to keep the shoes neutral. I mean GOD, you're not trying to look like a clown. These Sam Edelman platforms are my favorite for the season. The extra 4 inches of height they add is sickening.
