How to wear the Color Blocking trend

Color Blocking Color Blocking  

Tuesday October 2nd, 2012

Many times I think to myself: How can I wear the color blocking trend without looking like a crazy rainbow? Well, I'm going to let you all in on a fail-proof tip that has worked for me so far.... pick colors in the same color family!

**Note: These photos don't show it, but my dress is aqua and my jacket is bright green (they aren't the same color)... just sayin ;)

That's right, just pick two or three colors that are close to each other on the color wheel and your set to go! A couple of my favorite color combos are yellow+green+blue (See here and here), blue+purple (See here, here, and here), and pink+red (See here, here, and here). Its easy and it always works!

BTW, today was a special day because my brother Tom brought his adooooorable Persian cat Jasmine to the office to visit. She is so cute!!
