Fun and Feisty Colorblock...

Hello and Happy Thursday my loves. 

I hope everyone is off to a great start. We are one day closer to the weekend and boy am I excited. I will be participating in the Yours/Mine Secondhand Shopping Soiree (YMSSS) event this Saturday, August 4 on the rooftop of a very posh lounge located in the heart of  Washington, DC. If you're in the area you should definitely check it out. View more details about the event here

In my last post, I discussed polka dots and just how lovely they are. I figured that it would only be right if I styled some of my own in today's outfit post. 

I'm a huge fan of bold colors so this particular combination made me feel all types of bright and cheery. My favorite part has to be the shoes-it's amazing just how many ways these highlighter yellow Prabal Gurung sandals are able to be styled without seeming out of place. 

The only negative thing I have to disclose about these sandals (to those of you who have purchased them and have yet to wear them) is what everyone else has been saying-the ankle straps are madly possessed!! They obviously do what they want-the little fastener part will not stay closed over long or even short periods of time. This major mishap has therefore left me literally walking out of my heels in the middle of my church parking lot. 

Talk about EMBARRASSING!!! 
Oh, the things we endure for the sake of beauty!!

Nevertheless, they still complimented my clearance rack polka dots very well. The pink skirt was also a very classic must have that I scored from one of  NY and Co's crazy sales.

This outfit gives me a totally different outlook on colorblocking-it doesn't have to be boring and plain. Instead, I prefer fun and feisty!!!

What are your favorite shades to colorblock?

I can't wait to hear from you!
