One of my fellow bloggers, Kristina of Pretty Shiny Sparkly, has launched a new blogger project: Bloggers Do it Better (if you aren’t involved, well then shame on you!) Each week she posts a theme for bloggers to shoot some outfit photogs for, post them, and the following Tuesday are all posts involved are showcased on her blog via a permalink. Pretty darn genius, don’t you think? I was instantly excited to be involved in her new project, and was thoroughly pleased to find color blocking to be the first “assignment”, if you will.
Update: See the rest of the bloggers that are involved here.
I’ve been dreaming up outfits in my head all week and they kept getting shut down, mostly because my closet didn’t have one of the items I wanted (and naturally, on a college budget which is basically nothing, I can’t just head out and purchase a multitude of items). So, I decided I should probably look in my closet first, THEN decide what to wear. Hmm, good idea, Marissa..
I ended up deciding on this jersey skirt, purchased from Gap what seems like forever ago. This turquoise is one of my favorite colors for spring; it’s so bright and cheery! I had conveniently painted my nails this light lavender last night so thought it only fitting to incorporate the purple in, hence the top. Purple & turqoise: color blocked. I suppose you could even throw brown in there, considering my shoes, bangle, and part of the necklace are brown too.. if you’re that particular.
A little fun with some side walk chalk – Who doesn’t love side walk chalk?!
