Full Time Fabulous

The Full Time Fabulous post for this month is all about Spring and Summer trends. Not too long ago I wrote a post about color blocking so I definitely had to do an outfit post all about that, as it's been one of my favorite trends this season.

cb-3I've had this orange Asos top for a bit now and I love the way it flows. I've been really into loose fitting tops recently. A few weeks ago I bought these Southpole stretch jeggings in jade.

colorblock2I chose color blocking as my 2011 trend because I'm one of those girls who really loves to wear blues, blacks and grays. So color blocking gives me the opportunity to truly enhance my style with a chance to wear colors I wouldn't necessarily wear.

Jewelry - Assorted
Top - Asos
Jean Leggings - Southpole
Wedges - Charlotte Russe

By the way, I took these outside of Phoenix ComiCon!
What do you think of my color blocking look?

Also I had a blogger meetup with Ria Michelle over the Memorial Day weekend.

  11. I have to say, I think color block is THEE blockbuster trend of spring 2011. Seemingly coming from out of nowhere, this ode to bright bold colors appeals to all types and all ages. There is so much happiness in the play of colors, maybe that why it feels so right, right about now- we surely could use a bit more smiling and happiness at the moment.
