Color Blocking Style File 06.14.11

There has been lots of inspiration out there for color blocking this season. I’m not going to lie, I LOVE it all. I love color. Love, Love, Love! I think half the fun of it is just going for it! Let loss and try new color combinations. I love the color combo in these pictures. Peach, Purple Coral and blue.

Have you tired color blocking? What is your favorite color combo?

This swing at my parents house has always been a favorite. I love swings. They make me feel like a kid again every time I sit and pump my legs. I could seriously swing all day long. My favorite ride at amusement parks is always the swings. The clanking of the chains as you sit in those basket seats, the wind in your hair as you start to swing around. Ahhh no better feeling!

Blouse: Old Navy
Skirt: Swapped (check to see if there is a swap coming to your neck of the woods)
Belt: J.Crew
Heels: Ebay

  1. I love swings! Once I get on one I feel 5 again, the feeling is incomparable! Oh and I love those pumps too, so feminine!

  2. those shoes are so cute! I love them! :o)

  3. I really like how this outfit doesn’t match but looks so good together! I really like that look, I see it a lot I’m just not sure if i could pull in off. Also I’m loving those blue shoes too!

    I hope your having the time of your life on your trip!

  4. I love color blocking, too. Sometimes I get a little too brave and then end up feeling a little too loud (at work today, for example!). But oh well!

  5. Ooh! I love these shoes.

    It’s funny you say that about swings because I feel the same. If I need to think something through I do it best on a swing haha. NOt sure why but there is something very freeing about them.

  6. I haven’t but you may have convinced me to try…

    (Go Bruins!)

  7. I’m absolutely, 100% jealous of your swing!!! I’ve been desperate for a tree swing since I was a little girl. Le sigh, I will have one some day though. -^_^- I do love color blocking and you’re so right about just going for it! The peach+bright purple combo is so pretty!

  8. I love this outfit. The colors are amazing. I really like the color blocking trend because I adore colorful things 🙂

  9. Outfit is gorgeous – the peach is really flattering. Also, those heels were the wedding shoes of my dreams. Sadly, I can’t say the ones I wound up wearing were anywhere near as beautiful. They weren’t even blue, which makes me even sadder.

  11. I love your shirt! I’m so into peach/coral this summer!! Also, I love swings too, they give me such a lovely free/flying feeling 🙂

  12. Need. Those. Shoes. NOW!

  13. color blocking is definitely one of the best trends to have come around lately. And your peach / purple combo is to die for!

  14. LOVE this color combo too. It’s a brave choice but comes together so nicely. Loving peach and purple- who would have thought!!

  15. I absolutely love this colour combination – the shoes just add such a lovely pop of colour to the outfit too!

    Those shoes are to die for!!

  17. The pictures of you on the swing have to be some of the most beautiful photos you have ever taken, seriously amazing. I am head over heels in love with this outfit. I need to replicate soon!

  18. swings are my favorite too! 100 percent. theyre so fun, especially when you get so high, you can see the whole park.

  19. I love swings too – but the ones in the amusement parks terrify me… I discovered I was afraid of heights in one of those swings when I was 10, and I still haven’t gotten over it :s
    Your outfit is brilliant. I’m so glad there’s so much colour this season! And those heels are awesome, great find.

  22. Jen, you look awesome in these photos! They’re so whimsical and fun, and the color palette of your outfit is so inspirational- this is a favorite summer look of mine. Im currently obsessing over colored heels and bright pencil skirts.
