Color Blockin {Part 1}

Everyone has there own sense of style and not one person is exempt from that rule. Some people are so stylish, they can strike out on their own and influence the world to see their personal fashion expression as another person's own. Do I dare consider myself stylish? OF COURSE! Here are a few quick facts about my own personal style. Summed up, I have about three different extremes:

  1. I am extremely detailed {think Givenchy Couture or Elie Saab}
  2. Plain & Simple {sometimes simplicity is genius}
It's the later of that list which brings me to my point. A major trend that recurs every season is color. Be it the royal purple of winter or aquamarine blue of summer. Color is something that fashion can not live without. Spring is one of the seasons that gives you a broader paintbrush when it comes to color. When you reflect on seasons past, its the only season where you can incorporate dark colors and those beautiful pastels and neon's. One of this Springs biggest trends happens to be color blocks. Here are some of my faves:
