Welcome to the (color blocking) party

Guess what? I color blocked. I am not a trendy person (usually). In fact, I think I said this before, but my usual attitude is to do the opposite of everyone else – so who was wearing all black when color blocking was super trendy? Me! And now look who is color blocking when it’s died down. Or has it died down? I don’t really know these things. I also don’t care. I get dressed based on me, not everyone else. Which is how it should be for everyone, actually.

Oh yeah, when I said I color blocked, I meant it. This is like, hard core, bright colors galore, sunglasses needed color blocking. But it worked (for me) and I liked it. And I got to wear my new Sole Society shoes again, so that’s a plus!

This is my “Should I walk?” pose. Seriously, how to other bloggers think of new ways to pose? Do you have a rotation of poses?

I like that I look happy in these pictures. I usually have a serious face in my blog pictures. Maybe it was the bright colors of my outfit! I was having an extremely good weekend as well, so that could have played into it. This was from the weekend that I worked the MusiCares event and I also got to hang out with some friends that I don’t see as often since they live in LA.

Happy Friday! This week has gone by really slow for me. Probably because I was in LA last weekend, and all this week I have been waiting for Friday night (tonight) to come so I can go back to LA for the three day weekend. I also felt like Thursday was Friday all day, so it seemed like there was an extra day in my week. Do you ever think or feel that one day is another? A few weeks ago, I went through the whole day thinking that a Wednesday was a Thursday, so I was really disappointed when I found out the next day was not Friday, ha!

btw, the side bun seems to be my go to hair do at the moment. It’s just so easy, but looks super cute!

If you didn’t catch the update in the giveaway post – which, if I were a reader entering a giveaway, I’d figure if I didn’t get an email, then I didn’t win (and go on to be extremely disappointed until I get my hopes up of winning the next blog giveaway that I enter – which might be a couple a week. Seriously, bloggers around these parts give away amazing things!). And I would have figured correctly, because I did email the winner of my Bows & Arrows Giveaway. Anyhoo, congratulations again to Tracy of Good Day Howard for winning the necklace from Bows & Arrows!

  42. Oh my, you looks fantastic! I love these two colours together and it also really makes me crave the sunshine.

  43. Kat said:

    This is a great colour combination. I think Pac Sun is underappreciated by bloggers. We don’t have it in Canada (as far as I know) but I’ve found a couple of pieces there on trips to the States.

  44. Your blog site was tweeted by a friend the other day. Figured I’d check it out. Best decision ever.

I adore each comment!
