What I Wore-Color Blocking with Peach & Orange

I've never been one to shy away from color. In fashion or interiors, color is what energizes and brings life to an outfit or space.  Color blocking is all the rage this spring, so what better way to dive right in and have some fun! 

For my take, I paired pale peach with a vibrant orange; both in the same color family but with varying intensities so as to not overwhelm.  I tempered it down with brown wedges, belt and a wood bangle.  Many pair two bright colors together, and while I love the way it looks editorially, I just would not rock it in real life. And I'm all about keepin it real here on Sweetie Pie Style! So peep out my version:






Top: H&M {similar}
Skirt: H&M {similar}
Belt: Thrifted {similar}
Wood Bangle: Kohls {similar}
Gold Bracelet: Thrifted {similar}
Earrings: F21 {similar}
Wedges: Kohls {similar}
Nails: Essie's Geranium
