Hers - Color Blocking

We're switching up our order a bit this week, all for the love of blogging!!  You may have noticed a recent addition to our right side bar ~ Bloggers Do It Better.  I've joined Pretty Shiny Sparkly, and a bevy of bloggers, to bring you weekly outfit challenges all around "Real People, Real Trends, Real Style" and, of course, to have a little fun with all you fabulous fashion bloggers!!

This week's challenge: COLOR BLOCKING.  This is one of my favorite trends for spring, which I guest blogged about on A Lovely Escape a couple weeks ago {click here to read the full post}, so I was super excited to take on this challenge.  I was possibly even more excited to wear my new masters-green blazer.  I'm totally in love with it's preppy, bright goodness!!  Hope you enjoy my interpretation of the challenge and feel free to join in on future ones {click the Bloggers Do It Better button on right for more detail}!!

  1. Girl, you rocked this assignment in a very preppy kind of way! In the early 80s this is exactly how color blocking was done!

    I'm not sure I can pull off the color blocking - I can do the stripes, yes - but the blocking ... not so sure ... I am going to try it out this weekend anyway ... I need to invest in a pair of bright pants!

    @Lynzy I think they did have the pink one! I was at the Zara on Michigan Avenue in Chicago. Give them a ring and put it on hold!
