Block Party

Top: Forever 21, $10 // Skirt: Courtesy of bluefly.com // Shoes: Payless, gift

One of the trends I'm loving most for spring is color blocking! It seems like this style has had a few moments in the spotlight over the past several years, but this is the first time I've really wanted to wear it. While it can be a tricky look to pull off, it's really striking and fun when it works.

While getting ready to go out on Saturday night, I found myself in the mood for something bold and reached for a couple of my brightest separates. Since the colors were so contrasting, I  kept the look simple with neutral shoes and no accessories. I love the way it came together can't wait to try a more tonal look next time. Will you try the color blocking trend this season?

I think I'm afraid of color blocking... I've limited my wardrobe to neutrals and only a few colors, which is usually how I think about putting outfits together. Wearing a bright color with another bright color is totally foreign to me, so I don't know if I'll embrace this trend... But I like how you've paired this together!

aw super duper cute! I've just discovered I don't own enough colorful clothes ;) Color blocking is less interesting in shades of gray...

Honestly, I LOVE color blocking on other people, but I so rarely wear bright colors that I'm afraid I'd be uncomfortable with it if I tried now.

But this? This is awesome!
