Color Blocking and a Baby!

Color Blocking... It became a really big trend a few years ago.
First of all, I don't like "trends". If a style becomes a trend then, eventually, that trend will become out of style, and I don't like that. I don't believe in the "Thou shall wear this and Thou shall not wear this" attitude. And that's exactly what a trend really is. Let me be clear, I don't think there's anything wrong with being trendy and wearing things that are on trend... Just don't knock down other people with that "OMG that's soooo 2010!" nonsense.

But getting back to the topic at hand, Color Blocking, I never really got into it. Not because it was a trend, but because it just wasn't really my style... or so I thought. 

A couple of years ago, I had this awesome hot pink skirt that I really wanted to wear for my birthday, but I wasn't sure what to wear with it. What do you wear with a skirt that is SO bold? The answer: wear another bold color! Hence me finally giving-in to Color Blocking. But I didn't wear a different color entirely, I went with another pink. That's right, Color Blocking can be monochromatic. The secret? Wearing the color in the same color family, but with a completely different underdone. 

So with my bright hot pink neon skirt, I wore a jewel-toned pink on top.

  Beautifully Color Blocked!

Got a Case of the Mondays?

Well, have I got the cure for you!

I recently partnered up with Jewelry Bean, a jewelry company that makes some of the most gorgeous accessories I have ever seen. I talk a lot about how accessories can make an outfit... well, you're definitely going to want to get your hands on their accessories. You'll never have to worry about putting an outfit together ever again. Just strap on one of Jewelry Bean's Statement Necklaces, for example, and no matter what you're wearing, you'll look fabulous...

I mean, looks at these!

 Emerald and Lace, does it get any better?
