Color Blocking


I love the whole color blocking trend. I'm a really big fan of red with pink. The brighter the better. Today I'm wearing this red skirt with a hot pink and cognac striped sweater. I was expecting it to be warmer today but it's freezing. I threw on this leopard infinity scarf and my yummy trench with pleather sleeves for warmth. My legs are bare. Bad decision. At least I have the boots covering part of them.

Sorry I've been so absent from posting and really absent from commenting on all of your blogs. I'm planning on catching up today and tomorrow. I've been sick. All laid up in bed sick. My cat decided that I was her new comfy bed. She seemed confused when I finally got out of bed on Monday. Like her entire bed grew legs. I turned the sick corner onto feeling better avenue. So, I'm back and I'm wearing a cheerful outfit to prove it.

I know I'm wearing a Valentine's outfit the day after said event. But that's how I roll.

When you're sick, you don't feel like doing all of that. Totally understand. I love pink and red together. Lot of blogarista's have been rocking those two colors. Your skirt and top looks great girl. Sending healing wishes your way. ((HUG))

Oh no! I'm sorry to hear about the sickness! I totally understand though. I am lackluster when I'm not feeling well :(

LOVE the color blocking going on here and the layering too!

You are such a star. I have honestly gone through my whole life having mixed feelings about red and pink, and in this one outfit post, you have managed to completely sell me on the combination. Amazing. Still adore that leather-sleeved trench, too. Hope you feel better soon!

You look pretty darn cute for someone who's getting over being sick! I love the colour blocking and pattern mixing and those boots- oh yeah! Btw are they vegan? I've been looking for a good pair of vegan cowgirl boots! Feel better xo

Yummy is the perfect word for that trench! I'm a bit gun-shy when it comes to mixing red and pinks because I rarely wear either color but you're making me want to try it! So glad you're feeling better, nothing make me feel better like snuggles with my cat, Gus!
