I Love You like a Love Song Baby

- Outfits

Color blocking is not a look I wear too often, but I absolutely love it!  I actually own a few pieces that have “color blocking” incorporated right into them with different sized stripes and bright colors (does that make me fashion lazy? yeah probably does).  A bright pink with a bright red is so vibrant and gorgeous, whether the top is red or the skirt is red and vice versa, I just love the look.

For the Everybody, Everywear assignment, I paired a short-sleeve silk pink blouse with a  red mini pencil skirt… I often wear the pink blouse with work ensembles and typically only wear the red skirt during the summer.  Since these two colors are such a statement, I paired the outfit with a white pair of pumps and pearl necklace and stud earrings.  I feel so girly in this ensemble, which makes it perfect for Valentine’s Day.  And with that said… I love theming for the holidays and already had a Valentine’s work ensemble and date night outfit picked out before I knew what the EBEW challenge would be, so tomorrow I will be wearing my official Valentine’s Day inspired outfit (which may or may not involve some hearts)!

    You look so good. Love the blouse and the balloons! :o)

    This color combination is rocking the blogger-land today and I have never worn it ‘coz I don’t seem to have these shades in my closet.

    You look stunning. This is one of the most perfect outfits I’ve ever seen. The top and skirt are beautiful and the white accessories are just right. Love the balloons. I’m recently starting to love red and pink together.
