My Friday Fancies: Color Blocking

I honestly love the color block trend, mostly because it discards old rules of wearing too much color and opens up the wardrobe to create endless combinations. For the most fearless, there are few color combinations that do not work.

Color blocking is, obviously, the theme for this week's My Friday Fancies, hosted as always by AV of  Long Distance Loving. I immediately took to the world wide web to find inspiration for this little segment and was very struck by a particular color combo: red, pink, and orange. While it strongly evokes one of my least favorite holidays, Valentine's Day, I still can't help but fall in love with the romantic and bright color pairing (even if it does remind me of my single-hood). And, I guess it does remind me of two of my favorite designers, Kate (Spade) and Tory (Burch).
