Color Blocking Courtesy of Lauren!

Today is the last guest post that I had lined up for NYC.
It's written by one of the first bloggers that I started following and to be honest, one of the bloggers that I'm dying to meet in real life!

Lauren @ From My Grey Desk :)
Thank you so much for doing this, Lauren. You're wonderful!

Sit back & enjoy, lovelies! You're in for a treat.

hello, lovely ladies! so happy to be here!

i'm lauren and i blog over at from my grey desk. i blog about a lot of different things, but one of my favorite things is fashion. i don't mean runway model, designer, high fashion. i mean regular people, outlet store, everyday fashion. you know, the kind of stuff that average jane's can wear.

today, i'm sharing an outfit that is a play on one of my favorite trends right now, color blocking. i think it's super fun and playful and anyone that has a few colored items can do it.

  14. I am quite fond of color blocking! Cute hair, too!

  15. Yay!! I "color-blocked" today!! Kelly green scoop tee and hot pink skirt!! I threw a yellow and white striped tank from Gap under my tee. Then added in my gold/silver Merona sandals from Tar-jay!! I was scared but I did it. Even went to the mall. Yikes!!! Best part: My extremely conservative, inside the box husband commented on it by saying "That's a pretty cool outfit!" Oh Yeah!!! SCORE!!!
    Thanks to you and Lauren and my other favorite bloggers for the inspiration...AND the courage!!
