Friday's Fancies


This week's Friday's Fancies theme over at {long distance loving} is color block! I have to admit I haven't really rocked this trend much, so this was a bit of a challenge at first. I couldn't decide which colors I wanted to play around with or how subtle {or not so subtle} I wanted my color blocking to be. I soon came to find that this look can go so many different directions, and it's so easy to be bold and try out fun combinations. In the end, I decided to go with navy blue and bright pink. After putting together the outfit, I wanted to push the color blocking one step further and throw in a red-orange clutch, too. In the end, this theme turned out to be lots of fun and has definitely inspired me to be daring enough to try a similar look in "real life"!

With all the different colors going on, I decided to keep the jewelry more classic with a gold chunky chain necklace and ivory watch. What do you think? Would you sport the color block trend, either in bright complementary colors or more neutral shades within the same color scheme? I love it because there are really no limitations when it comes to color blocking -- anything goes!
