So it seems that I was overly optimistic with my spring cleaning. Just when I put away all my winter sweaters, turtlenecks and boots, we got hit by a huge snow storm (enter 3 meters high snow heaps here). Obviously, these photos were snapped before the storm hit.
But seeing these pictures now is quite funny for another reason, too. I would never have believed that I would be the one to embrace colorblocking this wholeheartedly. My high school years were all about casual outfits, my college wardrobe was all about black and grey, and I used to shy away from bright colors (for no apparent reason). Nowadays, I've been having so much fun playing around with pinks, blues and yellows that I can't even fathom the possibility of going back to black. My rules for successful colorblocking are simple: I only stick to two bright colors, even when it comes to accessories and I alternate them to create a visually interesting ensemble. Neutral accents in black, beige or brown are always a safe bet, if you don't want to resemble a rainbow (or a parrot).
Have you embraced colorblocking trend? What is your approach when it comes to pairing bright colors? Let me know in the comments!
