WIWW - color blocking

Let's talk color blocking....

When my brother got married, my mom and I went to a bridal shower thrown by her side of the shower.  My mom showed up with no time to spare - I opened the door and we were dressed VERY similiar - but I had to run out the door.  How Embarrassing.  I think her family still talks about it!

So now that we were invited to a baby shower thrown by her side, I knew I needed to wear something my mom didn't own - hence the choice for mint jeans! (and then I went straight from there to meet my my family and others at a local baseball game - hence the crazy picture)

If you remember back in my post dedicated to every-day ways to wear mint jeans, I went with color blocking in three colors - mint, yellow and pink (see below) - I did that above but instead of a pink shirt I just accessorized in pink.  I think that's an easier way to color block - 2 clothing colors and then the 3rd color is in accessories.

On Sunday I wore this dress that I've had forever but I still love it - which is funny because I don't really like the color red - anyways, the dress is super cozy and easy to wear - love that.
Any outfit thoughts for me today?? How do you do color-blocking? 2 colors? 3?  I need tips!

Love the top color blocking - I really need to get a pair of colored jeans!

Yeah, I like the top one the best too. My color blocking consists of (usually) brown and khaki or brown and army green or black and army green or black and khaki. I never tire of those colors. :-)

I think the top color blocking is the best. I like two main, bright colors. I think if more is added it just gets distracting. lol

Much better idea to have the white top and accessorise with pink. Love the thought of her family still talking about the fashion faux pas, made me chuckle x

Best outfit ever. Lookin' good.

Mandy, please please please share how you watermark your photos with the bee picture!
CUTE clothes, love the jeans :)

Love both the jean photos! I think for a shower the two colors is better since it's not so loud... But for fun three looks great too!
