OBSESSING about color-blocking

Color-blocking is a trend I can seriously get behind this season.  It is everywhere and when worn correctly,it can be for everyone. 
Two things to keep in mind when rocking this trend are  proportions and colors.
Blocks of color can tend to create lines of proportion on your body. Make sure that the lines being created on your body are the most flattering for your shape.
Also, make sure you pick colors that look fabulous with your most important assets, your hair, skin and eyes. Keeping these two important factors in mind will insure that you are presenting your most fabulous you as you rock this trend.

Here are a few examples of fun, successful color-blocking

Seriously Sexy and Off The Shoulder

The very popular off the shoulder look is the perfect way to bring sexy into the workplace without looking skanky. Try a casual look like this one or go wild with something a little more dressy. Either way the subtle sexiness of showing a little shoulder is a serious DO.

Springing into winter

This winter in Washington has been so mild that it almost feels like spring. It makes me want to wear all kinds of bright colors all together as a kind of "welcome mat" to the warmth and beauty around me. What bright hues do you like to mix and match?
