For this month’s “How I Wear My” post, Jill of Everything Just So and I decided the colorblocking trend was calling our names! It’s bright, easy, so very cheerful, and what a terrific way to welcome spring.
I went all out this month and put together three colorblocking looks.
For the first look, I paired the red Gap pants that I wore last month with a beautiful coral silk blouse by Coldwater Creek that I bought at a local consignment shop for just $20.00.
I also wore a Nine West leopard belt and Steve Madden blush patent pumps. I really love these colors together and the leopard print gives the combination a little extra something.
This next colorblocking look didn’t involve much styling. Since it’s already colorblocked, I just threw it on and wore the same Steve Madden pumps. This Rachel Roy dress was on deep discount at Macy’s last week. On sale for $33.00, marked down from $119.00. It was hard to pass up.
My final colorblocking look is what I wore yesterday to have coffee with Giacomo. The jeans are from Gap and the raspberry sweater is Banana Republic (consignment find). I carried my new hot pink clutch and wore the same old dependable Steve Madden pumps.
Quick, before it’s too hot out (and it may already be for some of you), tie on your favorite scarf, get a picture of yourself wearing it, and send it to me or Jill to be featured in our next “How I Wear My: Favorite Silk Scarf” on May 1st.
Feel free to have your scarf somewhere other than your neck—as a belt, around your bag, maybe even on your head! We’d love to hear the story behind your scarf, too. Is it special to you for some particular reason? The color? The design? The brand? Its provenance? Do share! And remember, you do not need to have a blog to participate.
Be sure you visit Jill’s blog to see how she
and all of the participants this month are colorblocking.
You will love the fantastic array of colorful looks.
