Color Blocking

Hi all! Hope your week is going well. We're half-way to the weekend! Today was a good day...the sun was out and we even made it to the park after school for a play date with friends. So did anyone score any goodies from the sale at Anthro yesterday? I have to say I was shocked to see so many great things hit sale after the Black Friday sale announcement just a few days ago...this girl isn't complaining though! I picked up a handful of wish list items and a few other things to try. I'll definitely have a few returns to make out of the bunch. The things I was most excited to grab were the Dots Within Blouse and the Vine-Wrapped Tee (anyone seeing a green trend here??) What did you pick-up??

So I happen to love the look of color blocking and wear different variations of it from time to time. I'm usually much more drawn to a solid accompanied by a print of some sort, but the clean lines and simplicity of color blocking can be so eye catching sometimes. On Sunday I wore a look that falls into what I would categorize as color blocking....or as much so as I wear, anyways:

-Top-Forever 21 (a few years old)
-Cardigan-J Crew Factory
-First Light Skirt-Anthropologie
-Tights-American Eagle
-Seychelles Password Pumps-Nordstrom (2010)
-Necklace-c/o Wish Design Shop
-Earrings-Stella & Dot

Yes, those are tights on my legs you see. It was COLD that morning! Fall is officially here and the cool temps keep coming. I even busted out my coat today at the park to keep of that to come soon.

Off to bed I go...another morning of working in #1's classroom tomorrow for me! Have a great day!


  1. I absolutely love all those colors on you! Very tasteful and classy!

  2. This is awesome color the top and cardi, and the yellow pumps were the perfect addition!

  3. Great color blocking! I don't know about you, but I LOVE when tights weather comes around!

  4. Love color blocking, this is really cute!! And I love those yellow heels with the black tights.
