I read in Marie Claire the other day that “Bold Is The New Black.” And that couldn’t be more true! I’m all over the color blocking trend and decided to match up two vibrant colors together. While the long-standing fashion rule is only to wear one bright thing at a time, the latest color blocking trend throws all those rules out the window!
Since I did mix two very bright colors, I decided to stick with a nude pair of pumps and purse. I didn’t want to add any more color as then people would even know where to look when seeing my outfit. While color is good, I think a color explosion might be too much. Even for me. 🙂
I did throw in one more tiny color though: minty green. I’ve seen it everywhere this spring and just wanted a little touch of it here. The belt (although it’s hard to see) and necklace are both in this lovely contrasting color. I actually think the cooler tones of the mint might tone down the rest of the outfit just a bit…
Oh, and one more note, I really want to apologize in advance if I haven’t been able to visit your blogs as much recently. I’m completely slammed with wedding stuff. If it’s not visiting with vendors or going to private dance lessons, it’s figuring out table assignments and DIY-ing my wedding programs and menus. And not to mention, I had to re-book a new photographer (new engagement photo session this Thursday!). Here I was thinking a wedding planner was going to make things easier. Unfortunately, all these details are things only I can take care of! Thank goodness this craziness is all going to be over in 3 weeks. 🙂
P.S. In case you missed it:
