Be Bold

I've been doing quite a bit of color-blocking with my looks lately and I happened to stumble upon this beautiful color-blocked shoulder purse at a local vintage store.  Therefore, I incorporated the purse with these bright green pants and yellow top.  I added green heels to enhance the overall look and a white blazer to neutralize it since I added so much color.  Let me know what you think!

What I'm wearing:
F21 blazer
American Apparel tank
Express pants
F21 necklace
Vintage shoulder purse

Color Pop

One of my favorite rollover trends for this season is color-blocking for the simple fact that various bold colors can look beautiful together.  However, this is not to say that you should throw on every bright piece that you have in your closet.  It's almost like attending art class all over again!  Primary colors, complementary colors, analogous colors, and triadic colors look great together.  Primary includes red, yellow and blue while complementary colors are opposite on the color wheel (i.e. red/green, yellow/purple, orange/blue).  To dive into it a little deeper, analogous colors are typically next to each other (i.e. red, orange, yellow) and triadic colors are evenly spaced on the color wheel (i.e. green, purple, yellow). 

For today's OOTD, I included the analogous colors red (pink), orange and yellow.  I'm very pleased with the outcome!  Let me know what you think.
