There's something about this outfit that leaves me at a loss of words; perhaps it's the multitude of bright colors bouncing off my suburban street and into my lazy Sunday brain? Or maybe it's the fact I'm watching "The Walking Dead", a gregariously gory show, trying to type an upbeat and cheery post (something along the lines of "yay, it's almost spring and I love colorblocking")...I don't know, but I am having writers' block. So instead of carefully-written prose full of sarcastic sartorialism, I will leave you to write your own "Spring Awakening" (more Suburb Chic than Tony Award-winning musical) in the comments below.
This look is not for the faint of heart...I first stopped with just the blouse, necklace, and jeans but then I went Emerill style and kicked it up a notch. Bam! Taking color risks left and right, like a culinary master might with his meals. Yeah, something like that. The key to colorblocking for me, is to start with bright basics (i.e. a button-up blouse and skinny pants) then add on more brights, in mixed but not quite matchy-matchy hues. Everything goes together but not in a cashmere sweater-set kind of way.'
Fun fact, I have had these Betsey Johnson heels for almost six years. I hadn't taken them out to play though, because a dog we had when we were first married chewed on the heels for fun. Bad boy!
