this thing called color-blocking

top: thrifted, headband: aldo, dress as skirt: maurices, shoes: garage sale
Color-blocking basically means, you know those pieces that you used to think clashed? And you eeked at the thought of wearing them together? Give them another go. Because right now, it works! It’s basically like world’s most fun trend. Who doesn’t like bright colors? Seriously. I felt like a rainbow walking down the street. 
Speaking of walking down the street… Can I just paint a quick picture for you? Had to take my outfit picture minus hubby today. Enter substitute photographer, AKA: stepladder and three shoeboxes, and a tiny little lid to keep my lens upright (do you think it might be time to invest in a tripod?? I think so. But dang it’s so hard to not spend my personal fund on things I can actually wear). Back to my picture. I’m walking down the street looking like this ^ with clunky stepladder in one arm, and huge bag with boxes in it in the other. Conclusion… you really can’t care a whole lot what your neighbors think of you when you do a fashion blog.
Have a lovely, rainbow-filled, day. (Annnnd my blog has now become an episode of Sesame Street)

  1. just wanted to point out that i really like your bangs šŸ™‚ the one downside of curly hair is that to pull something like that off, i'd have to be permanently attached to a straightener…

  2. I was just thinking that I need to invest in a tripod myself. My husband is rarely home when the light is good (except on weekends), and the pile of boxes and random items holding the camera upright is getting a bit old!! I think you did great being your own photographer though.:)

  3. LOVING colour blocking! It's my favorite trend right now. Great photos with your trusty ladder & shoe boxes. Who cares what people think. It's hard work to get good photos for a blog!!! These are fantastic! xo

  4. Oh, this is great color-blocking! I love this trend, I can't wait to try it myself! And I feel the same way about getting a tripod… I can't wear it, so I don't want to spend my money on it!

  5. I am obsessed with color blocking! look for my color block look soon on my blog! Actually, it will probs happen more than once in a row!
    New follower!

  6. I don't have a tripod either, I use the table in the living room or this big AC thing in the backyard lol I haven't got up the courage to actually go out alone to take pictures yet..

    I love this look!

  7. Linds! I color blocked yesterday because I read this on Friday and really wanted to try it! I was hoping to catch you at church, maybe good I didn't so I have time to improve my blocking skills before the expert assess me šŸ˜‰
    Loving the advice and confidence you give me to be brave and bold! <3
