There is something about the color blocking craze that just makes me smile. At the first signs of the craze, I was a little hesitant. Could someone really pull off that many colors, together? Could someone really make two shades of red work, and it work well? The more I saw the outfits in Vogue, Glamour, and other magazines, the more I wanted to find the perfect outfit to give it a whirl of my own.
Sheer dumb luck brought my outfit together today. (And it goes to show that when you try to find the perfect outfit, you’ll never succeed — because I tried for months and came up empty. Then, I just happened upon the clearance racks in the Limited one day and found the perfect skirt!)

I discovered the trick to color blocking with the same color is to add a pop of color elsewhere. The shoes were the perfect pop I was looking for, and they even incorporated another hint of orange. How do you color block?
