I've never been good at color blocking. I usually stick to one loud print or quirky focus; I'm usually so matchy-matchy that it can be hard for me to combine colors in unexpected ways. I really admire people who are adept at it -- it's an art unto itself! Marisa and Polly are especially incredible at it, and I'm always in awe of the outfits they put together. This outfit is in no way an example of color blocking, but it is an attempt to combine some colors that I wouldn't normally try: mustard and cyan.
I bought this dress from Forever 21's website, and it ended up being a lot shorter than I had anticipated... I guess I thought a modest cardigan and a too-short hemline would cancel each other out? I really like the top of this halter dress though, and because it's not the sort of dress I'd wear with tights, I had to figure out some way to get some wear out of it! I love that the print is so vintage-inspired. It was actually still pretty warm out when I took these -- if I had taken them now, I'd definitely need a jacket!

Maybe after this slight foray into combining unlikely colors, I'll get a little braver with it. Do you have a favorite unique color combo? I always really liked red and aquamarine, but do you have any other favorites I should try?
Have a great Thursday!
