i’m wearing: tangerine zipper back tank from nordstrom rack, mint pleated skirt from lulus, jcrew necklace from ebay, various bracelets, michael kors watch and MIA sandals.

it’s been a while since i’ve linked up with everybody everywear but this time i FINALLY remembered! the theme was “pastels” and since we had such nice weather this weekend, i went with this easy comfortable colorblocked outfit. i hope colorblocking never goes out of style because it is just too much fun. i get to wear things together that i never would have thought to put together before. how about you…what is your favorite trend right now???

    Love that you paired the top and skirt together. It actually looked like it was a drop-waist dress. I love it!

    I love this look but alas it would look like a bag on my short body. Great colors though, I’m so over black. I mean yeah it’s slimming and all but I”m just not that serious. I’m also really over the giant 3″ platforms on all freaking pumps these days. little platform = great, giant block seems like we’re edgeing a bit too close to foot binding for my comfort. ha ha.

    Great combo! I love those colors together, especially with the tan shoes – reminds me of an ice cream cone with the sorbet hues up top and the crunchy cone at the bottom 🙂

    I agree with you about the colorblocking trend…I hope it hangs around for awhile too! There are so many fun combinations that can be created. Love the color combo in this outfit…esp. love the mint Lulu’s skirt 🙂

    YAY! So glad you brought back that skirt! I love the style and colour, plus the tangerine top looks great with it. I’m utterly jealous of your nice weather, it is 49 degrees in chicago…I am wearing my winter coat because it is freezing… So the birchbox theme this month is ‘natural,’ I’m getting ready for another installment of tea.

    I LOVE THIS LOOK ON YOU! {ok, sorry for shouting lol} the skirt and top were made to go together, but it takes someone with amazing style {you} to figure that out 🙂
