color blocking for dummies.

 wholesale-dress.net shirt; Abercrombie & Fitch shorts; Jeffrey Campbell "lita" shoes; Forever 21 necklace; c/o Konstantino bracelet; vintage & handcrafted jewelry
I bought this shirt awhile ago & was so bummed when the package came & they sent me the wrong color. I ordered a neutral version (obvy) & was totally like "..da fuck?" when they sent me this bright colored thing. After staring at it in my closet/flipping it the bird for a few months I decided to finally throw it on & it turned out to not be terrible & actually a good way to help me transition into wearing a bit of color for once. Total color blocking for dummies with one single shirt.

Also, check out these features on me by Envi Shoes HERE & the June issue of N.E.E.T. Magazine HERE (page 221).

  35. I totally missed your blog while I was gone! You look perfecto, as usual. I guess it's time for me to jump on the wholesale-dress.net bandwagon, because that top is one of many adorable things I've seen from that site.
    And I loooooove the F21 necklace. I have become obsessed with sorta prom-esque chokers and bib necklaces.
    Congrats on your features, lovely!

  52. BEAUTIFUL! Love the shoes! I could never pull them off though. Your blog is amazing, definitely following! <3 x

    ReplyDelete
  53. I really like the shirt, which is surprising because I'm really not into colour-blocking all that much, I want to try it but at the same time I feel stupid, besides it goes against everything about colour theory I learned in school.
    What is not surprising is how much I love your shoes, I should just rob an ATM buy some JC and be done with it.
