My Style | Color-Blocked

3.04.2012

Lush Dress | BAPE Watch | Zara Wedges

This season has been all about the color.  I love color blocking and color mixing when I see it on other girls, but in my everyday life, it’s been a tough thing for me to put together and let it feel natural.  So, here is my attempt at it.  I love the bright fuchsia and cherry red set against a neutral, creamy palette.  I kept my shoes on the neutral side as well. My wedges are a pale pastel pink with a coral strap.   I am going to to try to wear this outfit again, but next time push myself to color block in my accessories as well.   I have been on the search for a fun pop color pump.  Since it is more of a fashion style because of the color, I am definitely looking into an affordable option that would not break the bank.  I was thinking of trying these Steve Madden or Aldo Heels.  Also, a bright clutch or handbag could liven the outfit a bit more.  I am gravitating toward this ASOS Clutch or this Zara Mini Messenger. So good, right?  Or I could mix in a bright pop with my jewelry.  I’m really loving these Topshop Earrings and Nasty Gal Cuff (but not necessarily together). I’ll let you know how it all goes.

You've done a great job! It does look natural ;). I feel I'm no good at putting outfits together :/. Most of my clothes are animal-patterned which makes it difficult to match. I guess I should start buying more basic pieces, haha.

Hope you start the week off with a huge smile! ;D

Thanks a lot for dropping by!

The Zara mini messenger should be a definite purchase! What an amazing colour, and the gold plated tip is a great detail. I seriously think that pink and red are one of the most complementary colour pairings ever!

I love the color blocking and the splash of purple on the bottom of your dress. I have similar top from Lush but it has blue and neon yellow in it. Loving the Zara wedge as well. Can't wait to go bare legged!

i love it!!! i love the bangs too!

Christina C said...

Thanks for stopping by!! Your attempt at color blocking was a raving success haha... if you want to color block in the accessories as well, I think going for a small turquoise or aqua accent (a watch/bib necklace/collar?) would suit this outfit perfectly.

Cheers!
