This outfit is my contribution to this week's "I challenge you to..." installment.
The "I challenge you to..." is a creative initiative by two very pretty bloggers; Dany of Nany's Klozet and Flor of Flor de Maria Fashion. Here's how they described it:
"Dany from Nany’s Klozet and I (Flor) decided to start something called “I challenge you to…”. In this weekly special, we challenge our readers and bloggers around the globe to wear specific trends- and we would love if you could join us. Every Tuesday we’ll publish next week’s challenge, on Mondays: we’ll show you how we wear the trend and you’ll be able to share your link & outfit her on my blog. You can also upload your pictures to Nany’s Klozet Facebook or Flor de Maria Fashion Facebook. We were inspired by “Bloggers do it better” but we want to give our own twist to it!"
I honestly can't remember how I stumbled upon this, but when I did, I thought it was quite a fun project and I couldn't wait to participate. So this week, I've decided to contribute properly. This week's challenge was colour-blocking with primary colours!
Colour-blocking is so in trend this season and totally perfect for summer. The colours are big, bold and loud, definitely not for the faint-hearted! I don't think I've tried colour-blocking before, but the bright, summery colours make me really happy clappy!
I'm actually really glad colour-blocking is so 'In' these days. It means that I don't have to worry about clashing colours or rack my brains thinking about the right colour coordination. I also like it that this trend is so...brave. Usually we're taught to pick one item to focus on and build the rest of the pieces around it, but for this trend, every single piece screams for attention.
Have you tried colour-blocking? If you have, do leave me a link to the blog post, I'd love to check out your outfits
