You will all remember the White Out look from May 5th which was a part of the Bloggers Do It Better Challenge at Pretty Shiny Sparkly. Well there was actually a challenge the week before as well, and although I can't participate in the link-up (my blog wasn't even up when the challenge was issued) I was still inspired to create a look. Which really shouldn't be a surprise since I am inspired to create a look by just about everything and anything. Aren't you? The topic for the challenge was Colour Blocking.
This was such a huge trend on the runways and of course it is popping up in all of the fashion magazines. I seem to remember seeing this trend before but no matter. I hadn't really knowingly dedicated a look to the colour blocking cause before this so it was fun. For fun I chose a primary colour scheme - also because the red pants are super comfy and it was windy out so a skirt/shorts wouldn't have been a good choice.
In retrospect I am not sure that I love the addition of the red robot necklace... cute but he was jingle jangling all over and I was trying on rompers at a new(ish) store I discovered here in town. That means I spent a lot of time going - necklace on, necklace off, necklace on, necklace off.
Isn't that the worst part about buying anything new? Maybe in the future there will be scanners which scan your body and then project images of you in every single outfit/piece onto a mirror so you can "try things on". Hassle free.
I probably watched too much Star Trek as a child or something - plus knowing technology the scanners would probably give us an incurable disease.
Wait... I think I have it already ... shopaholicism.... (is that a word??)
