Ever since I saw this look on Pinterest, I knew I had to recreate it. Most importantly, I had all the pieces! And that never happens!! Have any of you tried color-blocking in brights? Or is it too flashy? I kept it simple here with beige and brown and no jewelry...but this color combo is hardly simple! I felt like a Stop sign all day. I loved it.

It's a crime to smile on fashion blogs.. Didn't you hear??
I'm wearing a Gap dress I snipped into a top ($7), thrifted belt ($1), vintage skirt ($6), JCPenney pumps (free), vintage brown bag ($15), and JCPenney black bag (free).

  1. LOVE this colour combo! In a way I think pairing two bright colours together tones them down. If your orange top was paried with a neutral it would pop out way more and would maybe be too overwhelming.

  2. These pieces go great together. The neutral shoes were the perfect way to go.

  7. I'd do it if I had the clothes for it, but I do not. I love being glaringly bright and colourful though, so much fun.
