Passion for Fashion: Bright, Bold Colors

I'm a little late to the "color blocking" trend, but I'm also a little late to the whole fashion blogging scene so even though it isn't groundbreaking, I thought I'd share a recent outfit that stretched me out of my comfort zone a bit. I picked up a pair of royal blue jeans at a local thrift store at least a year ago, but wasn't exactly sure how I wanted to style them so they got pushed to the back of the closet.

Then, I got the green top (at TJ Maxx) and knew I wanted to pair it with the blue pants, but it took me awhile to work up the courage to do so. I guess I was afraid I would look silly. Do you ever hold back from expressing yourself through fashion for fear of looking silly? It seems like we give a lot of credence to the opinions of others, when we could just wear what we like. I decided to get over my fear and wear the outfit because I like it. Apparently Alicia Keys likes it too because she put together her own version and shared it on her Instagram recently.

I want to transition the jeans into fall so I was thinking of pairing them with some deeper, richer colors and fabrics. Of course, it will be pretty warm here in the south for a couple more months so I don't think I'll be pulling out the sweaters just yet!


  1. YOU are the cutest thing ever! Truth.
    Love the outfit!

  2. I accidentally wore the same color blocking combo after spilling tea all over my white shirt last week at work. Our company colors are smurf blue and green so here I am in kelly green pants wearing a smurf blue oversized tee shirt! Accidental color blocking is not as cute as your outfit.
